Well, name it, then.
Uncustomary - honestly, I *just* got your screen name this instant. That is hilarious.
But anyway, I wanted to reply to your name post a little more fully over here.
You had asked if you know any songs with your name in them - which I'd be inclined to say "no" to, only there is a song that someone else fervently believed included my name.
"Sweet Caroline" is a song that my middle-school gym teacher used to sing to me in the hallways before class started.
I objected simply because I pronounce my name differently. Also, I had a nickname and no one called me by my full name at the time, so most of my classmates were terribly confused about why he was singing this song.
I also had to willfully ignore the super-duper creepiness of the undertone of this song, which I suppose was compounded by the fact that none of my classmates understood that he was singing it to me.
Dude. I was, like, twelve.
So we all just thought he was crazy, like the rest of our teachers - one of whom would occasionally parade down the hallways playing a bagpipe at full blast.
I'm starting to think that my middle school was a pretty fun place.
