Parker Stone

Jamie has just informed me that this was his fake name once upon a time (sort of like Regina Phalange from Friends). Seriously. I guess he thought he was going to be a soap opera star or a weather man.

I don't think I ever had a *fake* name. I do remember when one of my roommates in college decided to pretend she was the governor of Georgia's daughter one night at the bar. It worked great until one of the guys she tried to pick up actually knew the real governor.

I'm pretty sure that I wouldn't have called Jamie after meeting him if his name was Parker Stone.

Did you have a fake name?

In college, my best friend and I made up very Italian-sounding bar names. Mine was Maria Pellegrini and hers was Gina SomethingThatEndsInI (can't remember for the life of me). We used those for many years...they served us well.

Not intentionally. But since no one can ever pronounce my name its kind of like having lots of fake names!

Was J pretending to be a yuppie from the Hamptons? I had a name, but now I can't remember it - I'll get back to you. My guy friend's name was Sebastian.

I just realized that Parker and Stone are the last names of the two guys who created South Park. Please tell me that's not how Jamie came up with the name!

Does it count that in 8th grade I decided that I wanted my name to be Eden- after my favorite soap opera character?

I even convinced my English teacher to call me Eden for a while. She was a good sport.

Trish - I don't know you, but was it Eden from Santa Barbara? I loved that soap!

Whenever Jill and I are out we the fake names Jackie and Roxanne- our mothers' names. That way we never forget, and we can instantly pick up on the hint. Once I gave my real phone number to a man I'd given my fake name to. Oh alcohol.

My three friends and I would go out and we'd all pretend to be Heather or all pretend to be Jessica. And then one night we were introducing ourselves to some guys as the Jessicas when a guy from the weekend before (when we were Heathers) overheard us and busted us.
Oh well.
