My Name

Well, as you can see, my name is Marleaux (pronounced Marlo) Nichelle. I'm named after Nichelle Nichols of Star Trek and Marlo Thomas of That Girl; two independent ladies of 70's TV. Though I'm not anal about it, I do usually need to correct the pronunciation of my name. If I didn't, I would be Marla, Margo or Michelle, for the rest of my life. Though for 6 months as I worked as a temp-to-perm at my current job, I was Margo. It wasn’t until I interviewed for a permanent position, that my boss saw that my name contained an L and not a G. I didn't care; I just wanted to be hired…

The trip is Monday. I'll have to spend this lovely 80 degrees Sunday in the office to prepare. I already have A Matter of Attention. I'll probably get a few more over time.

Opinionated diva- My boss says the same thing. She actually teases me with this story. The bad thing was that in each department I was a different name. I think I might have been a Mary and Maria too. I was soo shy back then.

The Bully - Aww, see cars are just bring folks together across the internet... Yeah, I love my baby. I was thinking about trading her in for a 5 but changed my mind. I'm just going to tent the windows and such. Wish I was closer to the end of my payments too. I will be refinancing soon though.

PCD - Thanks. And that photo of Liya is striking. that's my girl.

Fresh and Fab - Thanks for the love. Yeah, I would say it ten times so some1 could get it right. That ish won't happen again. I'ld be like Kat Williams on the Boondocks, "Say it wit me now..."

I can feel you. I am always (Ann-dree-yah) or (Aun-Dre-A) or (Adrieen) or whatever comes out. It is not that damn hard people. Pronounce your letters. It's (An-Dre-A)Not hard spelling or anything. Simple. But after 24 years of correcting and re-correcting, I could care less.
