Not that I think anything of myself at all! Honest.

But I've noticed a distinct difference in replies with this new name!


I'm still me?

I'm still a twat!


<awaits questions of my previous name and on response the reply "never heard of you"> grin

Harry Potter references bring with them certain assumptions...

Yes I got that with a name change!

mrsdonkeybucket Sat 09-Jul-11 23:14:20

I have no idea what your old name was.

But when I see 'Sirius' I go all gooey.

I don't know why.

Would you and I 'know' one another if I knew your old name ?

DoNotTakeMeSiriusly Sat 09-Jul-11 23:14:52

Not at all! not at all! I am probably the least harry potterish of the lot. lies through her teeth grin

DoNotTakeMeSiriusly Sat 09-Jul-11 23:15:56

Probably not donkeybucket. I'm terrible at names and expect others to be the same. usual name is shown if you hover over the username!

HoneyNorwegianRidgebackdragon Sat 09-Jul-11 23:16:53

I haven't noticed you've been treated differently smile

DoNotTakeMeSiriusly Sat 09-Jul-11 23:17:16

and you go all gooey because he is just terribly ooh-er. Not in the films. I love Gary oldman and all that blah blah but could of done with someone a bit more shaggable. IMO.

DoNotTakeMeSiriusly Sat 09-Jul-11 23:17:53

Maybe it's cos I'm more stressed!

mrsdonkeybucket Sat 09-Jul-11 23:21:52

I have 'seen you around', DNTMS, aka, ABF ! grin

Don't think we have conversed before though ?

I go all gooey because of the image I had in my head of him from the books. A strong, manly man, type thing. Gary Oldman not shaggable to me because I always remember that EE 'Big Mo' is his sister and it puts me off ! And he looks a bit ('scuse the pun) 'weasley'.

DoNotTakeMeSiriusly Sat 09-Jul-11 23:23:51

Ha! weasley!

Scuse me i'm drunkand find silly things rather amusing...

I'm still trying to find my perfect sirius.

EvenLessNarkyPuffin Sat 09-Jul-11 23:27:39

When did that happen??? Why does it say your other name? What happens if I need to namechange to ask a question about pirate sex?

FoofusScrimgeour Sat 09-Jul-11 23:28:05

Earlier today Trillian said "I agree with Foofus" . Since normally everyone says "Iagree with Trillian" I was a tiny bit thrilled.

No one has EVER and I mean EVER said " I agree ....... (staying incognito)" before. Sooo yanbu

or Yabu I can't remember the Question

mrsdonkeybucket Sat 09-Jul-11 23:28:38

Ah. I have mine. But he looks nothing like the image in my head !

Looks do help, don't they ? And fantasies. wink

DoNotTakeMeSiriusly Sat 09-Jul-11 23:36:11

LOL foofus, I remember your original name!

It only says my original name becaus eI typed it into my status narkypuffin.

mrsdonkeybucket Sat 09-Jul-11 23:38:07


It says foofus' original name too. With 'in HP disguise' after it.

<falls over laughing>

FoofusScrimgeour Sat 09-Jul-11 23:38:27

Really? grin
well I shall take ht as a compliment and not because it's soddinfg obvious.

FoofusScrimgeour Sat 09-Jul-11 23:39:40

Hahahahahahahaha shit yeah I forgot grin

2shoes Sat 09-Jul-11 23:41:53

yanbu, I have just gone back to my original one as I felt too new and was confusing myself

mrsdonkeybucket Sat 09-Jul-11 23:43:47

I assumed you had done that, foofus ? grin

EggyAllenPoe Sat 09-Jul-11 23:46:02

i am more of a 'severus' girl, personally. it was something about the evil that i like.

i asked Dh to name DD2 Bellatrix (for real) he wasn't having it though.


VforViennetta Sat 09-Jul-11 23:46:59

Yanbu, I namechange all the time, but have noticed that certain names provoke more ire it seems, I had one where I was flamed and noticed constantly, I changed grin. It's odd because I barely even look at names, apart from when you know exactly who it is before bothering glancing up.

oldsilver Sat 09-Jul-11 23:47:58

Tis funny everytime I see your new name I automatically see you as your old name ... perhaps too used to fun namechanging meself of a weekend, cause you are you being you arn't you grin
