Katya envy

There is another Katya in my reference class. I’m not sure how I feel about his. No, I am sure how I feel about this: I don’t like it at all. I am Katya! Me! No one else is allowed to be Katya!

What’s worse is that she has a much stronger claim to the name than I do, since she’s Russian and it’s her actual name instead of just an online / 100 Hour Board pseudonym. (I’m going to be answering to her name all semester and I’m going to have a hard time explaining why . . .)

Whoa, deja vu. Haven't you posted about the alter-Katya before, more or less exactly?

Well, you could have a name so generic that at last count 17 people in your school have the exact same name...

Not that it freaks me out or anything.

If it makes you feel any better, Katya is your real name, as far as I'm concerned. And you are the only one I know.

What??? You march right up to that girl and tell her what's what. You're Katya. Everyone knows that. You've got hundreds of readers a day who can attest to it. Does she have hundreds of readers daily?

I didn't think so.

Y'know, there really are a lot of other Katyas. One time I did a Web search for "Katya" to find your blog, and I discovered there are many mail-order brides with that name. Presumably, you are not one of them.

logan - Umm, I don't remember. Have I posted about her on BB? (This actually isn't the first class I've had with her, so it's entirely possible. And sometimes I think about a blog idea for so long that I don't remember if I've posted it or not.)

tb - There are 17 Tolkien Boys? Wow. Do they all know Melyngoch?

mf - Yeah, every time I send you an email, you have no clue who it's from. :)

yellow - OK. Thanks for the encouragement. I'm going to confront her one of these days and tell her that one of us has got to go. (And it's not going to be me!)

peter - Presumably. And don't ever do an image search on "Katya." (You'll see more of those mail-order brides than you might have intended.)

Oh, geez. And I remember Master Fob previously commenting with that same line ("Katya is your real name, as far as I'm concerned. And you are the only one I know").

Maybe I'll go have my head examined.

Why is everyone anonymous? They didn't used to be anonymous. Is this some sort of solidarity-with-the-identity-crisis thing? Cause I'm all for solidarity, but I don't like being anonymous.

Oh, I guess they're all anonymous because blogger just made me upgrade. And now I'm really pissed, 'cause I never wanted to, anyway.
