The Naming of Cats

I've recently discovered how terrible I am about giving people nicknames and never bothering to find out their real names. It's just like The Guy Who Hates it When They Put Corn in the Chili from The Princess Diaries books, and he ended up being really nice and a good friend for Mia once she actually got to know him. It's too late for me to make amends to the high school nicknamed, like The Trainer Who Got Stabbed and The Guy Who Looks Like Andrew Breimayer. Still, I can't help but wonder if college nicknamed like Hammock Guy, The Guy That Scooters Barefoot, The Guy With Striped Shoes, The Girl Who Sits Next to Me in Chorale, or The Girl With Star Wars Folders might just wind up to be good friends if I, like Mia, gave them the chance.
I also wonder if people have names for me. If so, they'd probably be along the lines of: The Girl Who Has a Stuffed Animal Bunny in Her Backpack, The Girl Who Does the Crosswords, The Girl Who Reads Oliver Twist, The Girl Who Takes Pictures of Herself, That Visually Stunning and Intimidatingly Beautiful in A Classic Hollywood Way Girl Who I Wish Would Turn To Me and Talk About Lord of The Rings...

  1. Funny you should mention this. First of all, I am still trying to figure out where cats come into play. Second, I have totally nicknamed you both "That Visually Stunning and Intimidatingly Beautiful in A Classic Hollywood Way Girl Who I Wish Would Turn To Me and Talk About Lord of The Rings" and "The Girl Who Has a Stuffed Animal Bunny in Her Backpack." Speaking of which, have you named said bunny yet?
