There are too many of us out there.
Lauras, that is.
I know of second Lauras who comment on several of my favourite blogs, and now on one blog there is a third.
So I am thinking I will take a new handle. I tried "Laura the Arcologist," but that looks much too pompous. (I don't know; maybe it fits? Gently, please, gently.)
Here are some other ideas:
LArc - too French? I can manage a little conversation, but I have no French heritage.
larc - too acronym-ish? Google brings up an awful lot of research/resource centres. But larc puts me in mind of a singing bird, or a light-hearted rebellious wandering.
larcola - hmm. Sort of icky, but on the plus side, this handle is very rare on the 'Net. Still - I'm no Miss Arcola.
arcolaura - I wouldn't be the only one in the world, but pretty close. I think I like it. The full name of Arcola is there, but muted, and the arc theme is emphasized. And my name is definitely there. Yes, I think I'll take it. I was going to ask for your opinions, but that was before I thought of this one.
Oh don't worry, I'll still welcome your opinions. But I'll probably still be arcolaura.
