Humm along with me – it’s the Tigger song from Winnie the Pooh. But substitute
“Carollynn” for “Tigger”
The most wonderful thing about Tiggers,
Oh, the wonderful thing about Tiggers is,
– not always the most accurate depiction of me – although I know many a folks
who would agree that my my top must be made outta rubber, and my bottom must
surely be made out of springs for all the falls I have taken and ah but I digress
– it’s the last line in the song that’s the crux of my point… “But the
most wonderful thing about Carollynns is … I’m the only one!”
Or so I thought.
I Google myself occasionally, just to see where my web site shows up, where
references to my nickname ranks in relation to the London nickname for the tube
stop (I’m finally ranked higher than London – whoohoo!), etc.
Anyway, yesterday, between rounds of Biology 101 and 102 homework assignments
(Yuck and double yuck!) I decided to Google myself, and since I was already
slap happy, I hit enter before typing in my last name, and so only Googled “Carollynn”. I’m somewhat chagrinned to discover that I rank #2 in the search, #1 is a
Hawaiian crafter who spells her name the way mine originally spelled before
I got lazy and stopped capitalizing the second “L“. My only
consolation is that my web sites look better than hers.
Sigh, so much for being unique. Now I know I’m not the only one.
