A Star Is Born (a special edition post)

WhoAmIEveryone wants to know Cordelia’s Mom’s real name, and I refuse to provide it.  But I believe I now have a compromise.  Read on.


It started out as a joke, actually.  In her post entitled,  42 New Year’s Resolutions You Can Actually Keep, Jessica Manuszak (The Middle Finger Project) listed #27 as:

27. “This year, I’m not going to legally change my first name to Cookiecakes.”
It’s really more of a middle name, after all.


Well, me being me, I immediately decided to entertain myself by commenting:

“Oh, but now I want to change my first name ….  Cordelia’s Mom: Cookiecakes.  Has a nice ring to it, don’t you think?”


Relax, folks, I’m not going to give you a play-by-play of the entire discussion – that’s why I included the link, above.  Duuh!

Anyway, one of my long-time readers picked up on that comment and subsequently called me CookieCakes while commenting on one of my own posts.

Which got me to thinking – and anyone who’s followed me for any length of time knows that when Cordelia’s Mom gets to thinking, really strange things can happen.

I like the idea of having a nickname.  I’ve never had a nickname.  Well, other than the nicknames my brothers gave me growing up, and I couldn’t repeat most of them here.  Or the nicknames my spouse calls me during *ahem* special times, and no way in hell am I repeating those here.

So, with Jessica Manuszak’s permission, I am adopting “CookieCakes” as Cordelia’s Mom’s “official” name.  Those readers who wish to call me something now have a name they can use.  (Hmmm, I’m not sure that came out right…)

Or you can continue to call me CM or CM,S or Cordelia’s Mom – up to you – but like I said before, I think CookieCakes as a nice ring to it.

The first five commenters who call me CookieCakes will get a special mention on my Facebook page.

Go for it!
