Absent For A Bit ....

I am away for a little while working on a few or more episodes for The Adventures of My Space Alien Alter Ego story ... will return (to Earth) soon!

Notice: Blogger has screwed up and lost a bunch of photos out of my blog! They are replaced with a gray silhouette of a human head. I will eventually get them replaced with the correct photo, it may take a while to find and fix everything. So some of my stories don't make much sense without their photos, sorry for the inconvenience.



The Evolution of My Old and New Pen(cil) Names

The Old

Dr. Seuss was the pen name of Theodor Seuss Geisel, a beloved American cartoonist and writer. A pen name is something you can hide behind if you wish to publish anonymously or in his case, semi-anonymously. My first pen name was a play on the single word 'anonymous' busted apart into 'A. Nona Mousse', which I thought was interesting considering it had a feminine middle part and there was someone in my department at work with the same rare name as one of the three pieces. And when I wanted to attribute a quote at the bottom of my e-mails to one of my children, I would use 'A. Nona Mousse Jr'. Only that made it even more confusing as I would not distinguish between the two children, they both had the same pen name.

The New

One day at work I wanted a new name to go with a silly piece of Seuss-like poetry, and I created the pen name "Dr Suez", and I thought, hmm, that's cool. That has slowly changed through the following path of evolution:

Dr Suez
Dr Sue Sez
- another feminine name?

Dr Soo Sez
- no, already have one feminine pen name, lets sound a little more Oriental, which I am not, adds a bit of confusion.

Dr Sioux Sez
- Oh! Lets go with a piece of my Dakota heritage even though I am not Indian, at least I don't think so, and surely not Sioux. No reference to the Johnny Cash song, that was 'A Boy Named Sue'

Dr Sioux Says
- ah, yes, I like that, it sounds like a sentence, Dr Sioux is making a proclamation.......

(Do you shun vowel e-vol-u-tion? You do?!?!?)
