This must be “stupid things I found on the Internet” week! (much to Bob’s dismay) Because…look what I found!
Well actually I found it on my friend Jenny’s blog. Anyway it tells you how many people have your name. Legally I am still Alison Faulkner. Which is a good thing because as you can see, there are only 12 other Alison Faulkner’s in the U.S. Do you know how well that ups my googling chances!?
However if I enter Alison Robertson…
There are SUBSTANTIALLY more people with the Alison Robertson name. Yes, 49. I don’t know if I can be motivated to be #50!
If I want to make it big out there, I need to differentiate myself from all these other Alison’s. After all there are 76,042 people named Alison in the United States alone! And statistically it is the 622nd most popular name. Names similar to Alison are “Alice.”
I think it’s almost sad how well this site “How many of me?” plays to my egotism. A site with “me” in the title!?!?! LET ME AT IT! I mean I have a whole blog devoted to myself…no really, it’s devoted to you…but I still want more!
Speaking of wanting more, I want Eric! He is out of town again. But, even though he periodically deserts me, he is like, the nicest husband ever. He did all the dishes and laundry, and cleaned the house before he left. He folded all my laundry and put it in little piles. And he even folds my unmentionables!
Eric is also really nice to me when I get super upset when he is gone (even if it has only been 12 hours) and I call him back two minutes after we hang up to tell him ridiculous things like, “I forgot to tell you! I got a new headband at Walgreens!”
Why do you even read my blog! I am an absurd human. Lame websites and gushing about my husband? He is sooo cute though.
Here’s a picture of my new headband!
