What Sarah Said (DCFC)

I keep confusing screen names when I log into different things. It's getting a little frustrating. Mostly because I want to be all names at all times. . . but I find that editorgirl is a little different from LadyLondon. To begin with, when I write LadyLondon I use caps. Just in case you missed it.

editorgirl was last year. She was me plus april, which expanded is me plus Miss K plus HMP plus Kapka plus aa plus oh!resolution plus (occasionally) wife of oh!resolution. She was the editor, the one in charge (until the infamous night of "Where the hell is eg?"), she was the one going on to great things. For those who don't know and don't want to go through the archives (this includes me), editorgirl was a name given me by the ubercool Kim Johnson, a professor of poetry and immense thinking at BYU.

LadyLondon appeared this summer, when it felt like editorgirl had disappeared. Rex asked me if I wanted to part of an online discussion board and desparate for some good discussion, I agreed, however hesitantly. In my head, LadyLondon was originally a more sophisticated, more stand-offish version of editorgirl. She was also less fun, more bookish. . . if that is possible. She still loved John Cusack and the 80s and poetry, but in a way that she could hide behind them to create a quirky identity.

I've spent a lot of time lately blogging about my identity in one way or another. And I'm not saying that I have everything figured out. Once that happens, I'll be insanely bored with life. I like mystery and puzzles, even when they come in the form of me. But I think editorgirl is back and LadyLondon is still around. . . anyone else feel the need to bust out a dialectic here? Sorry, the effects of 452. But the synthesis is what I'm in the process of creating. Fingers crossed, this synthesis (who will still go by editorgirl, LadyLondon, and occasionally, PepperGirl), is someone willing to be wrong sometimes. Someone who is willing to let people into her life--not just into her head via this blog.

It's something I'm working on. I'll let you know how it goes.

Need to explain the title: "I'm thinking of what Sarah said / that love is watching someone die. / So who's gonna watch you die?" Death Cab for Cutie

Yeah, that didn't explain anything.
