Blog Title Neurosis

I’m seriously considering changing my blog’s name. Mrs. Denton or a Hippopotamus is just not working for me anymore. Mainly because it’s, oh, I don’t know…stupid. I blame my classic DVD collection. This blog just as easily could have been called “Danger, Will Robinson”, “Next Stop Willoughby”, “He Was Dead When I Got There, Mr. Mason”  or “Whatchu talkin’ bout Willis”. Or, I could have called it “DY-NO-MITE!”, which would have probably got me put on some FBI blog-watching terrorist list.

When I first signed up for this wordpress blog I was totally stumped when it came time to ‘name your blog’. I was like, “Ummmmmmmmm…”, and then I was like, “Hmmmmmmmmmmm…”

I didn’t want it to just be called “Bob’s Blog”. I wanted something different and catchy.
I thought about going the music route:

Stairway to Heaven
‘Scuse Me While I Kiss the Sky
One Bad Apple
Disco Inferno

I rejected all of those. I really liked ‘Scuse My While I Kiss the Sky, but I didn’t want to rip off Jimi Hendrix.

I suppose that it was difficult to choose a blog title because I had no clue as to what the blog was even going to be about. I didn’t want it to be too blog specific. But then again, I didn’t want it to be miscellaneous odd lots of undetermined blogging content. I wanted it to be somewhere in the middle. Something that fit in with my mood changes.

While I was staring at the computer screen trying to come up with a blog name, that slumber party episode of the Brady Bunch came on tv (I had just randomly put that DVD into the player). I wasn’t really paying attention to it. It was just on. Finally, after about an hour of not being able to come up with a blog name, I looked up at the tv. It was at the part in the episode where Marcia gets in trouble because of her drawing of George Washington that someone had written ‘Mrs. Denton or a Hippopotamus’ on. Out of frustration I said, “Fine, I’ll just use that”. I figured that I would change it later, when I came up with something better. I never did.

Anyway, it’s causing me to experience blog identity crisis. It has become my blogging bane.  Who am I? Am I Bob or Mrs. Denton?

I really need to change the name quick before – like Mr. Hyde – Mrs. Denton totally takes over. I mean, she’s already done two blog posts. And that’s just creepy.
