    New Name, Please

    I've just returned from court with my final divorce decree in hand, and as a result I'm returning to my maiden name.

    SInce after 2 years in the Lounge I've only just achieved 2Star status, I'd hate to have to start all over by creating a new identity. Is it possible to change my log-in name to to "Samantha," and drop the now-defunct last name, but keep my history intact?

    Thanks for the procedural tip. As you can see, Claude handled my request in his usual expeditious manner. Where would we be without him?

    Re: New Name, Please

    Thanks, Lonnie.

    Now I just have to jump through the hoops to get all my identification, etc. converted. Lets see, Driver's License, Costco Card, Credit Cards, Bank Accounts, Notary Seal... I'm sure I'm forgetting something... oh yeah, Social Security Card. <img src=/S/dizzy.gif border=0 alt=dizzy width=15 height=15>

    My guess is that it'll be Spring before I've made the switch completely.

    You'll find it's like adjusting clocks for daylight saving, weeks afterwards, even months, I always manage to find yet another time piece that I missed. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>
    Cheers, Claude.

    Re: New Name, Please

    Not that there are any prospects on the distant horizon, and realizing that this fits neatly into the category of "famous last words," but I think I'll stick with this name, no matter what matrimonial entanglements I happen to fall into along the way. <img src=/S/yep.gif border=0 alt=yep width=15 height=15> <img src=/S/nope.gif border=0 alt=nope width=15 height=15> <img src=/S/dizzy.gif border=0 alt=dizzy width=15 height=15>

    Re: New Name, Please

    Funny you should mention that....

    It's been almost 2 months since we switched from daylight savings to standard time, and I just noticed this morning that my bedside clock is still an hour ahead of all the other clocks in the house.

    The only time I use my alarm clock is when I want to get up unusually early, but you'd think I'd have noticed before now!!

    Re: New Name, Please

    My ex was also an early riser -- he'd get up at 3:30 or 4:00 am every morning, so I didn't need the alarm clock while he was around. I've come to the conclusion that my cat considered that early morning time as HER chance for some human/cat interaction. Since he's moved out, she's been coming in and trying to wake me up to play in the middle of the night. <img src=/S/catty.gif border=0 alt=catty width=19 height=18>

    In the 5 months we've been on our own, I've managed to get her internal clock adjusted to 5:30 before she comes and wakes me, but she is still quite insistent if I don't get up right away when she greets me each morning.

    Did I mention she's part Siamese? It's not easy to ignore her when she "talks" to me. I tried earplugs, but that just caused her to learn to pat me on the face and lick my eyebrows until I open my eyes. <img src=/S/sigh.gif border=0 alt=sigh width=15 height=15>
