In Which I Change My Name

This rare Saturday post is to inform you that, effective immediately, I will no longer be Krista G. but Krista V. Since I plan to publish under my maiden name (which, I'll just tell you, is Van Dolzer, since I'm certain you'd never guess), I thought it might be best to start streamlining everything now. Not that I'm planning to be published anytime soon (although agents, if you're reading this, feel free to change my mind)--this is just a preemptive strike.

I'll still be Krista G. on the message boards (at least until I go all kamikaze and ditch my current accounts for new ones), so to anyone who wanders over here from there, yeah, that's still me. And just so I can sneak another military reference in (and another parenthetical aside), allow me to assure you I haven't gone AWOL--I'm still here, and the same old Krista G./V. I've always been.

Finally, a Word of the Week point to the person who comes up with the best guess at my married last name. (That would be the G. part of Krista G., for those of you who are feeling slower-witted on this Saturday.) And to those of you who already know it, keep in mind that the best guess is not necessarily the closest one, but the one that makes me smile biggest:)

Holey Moley, I can't resist!

I think you possibly might have married a Mr. Gadberry.

OR a Mr. Gallehawk. Wait, or a Mr. Gildersleeve, Mr. Gash, Mr. Goldfinch, or Mr. Gesseronditbrulotte. That last one would make it tough at bookstore signings. No wonder you're changing your name.

Holly --> :)

Well, I kind of like Gadzooks, but Gardener would be closer to the real thing. I'm voting for Holly.

And speaking of words, I think my word verification is in spanish today: fulpa, a combination of fuchi and culpa. Either way, it's bad news. ;)

Guggenheim. As in the Solomon Guggenheim Museum in NYC.

Grinch. As in the mean one who stole Christmas.

Gander. As in, what is good for the goose.

Greensleeves. As in the poem.

Excellent entries, all. But the point goes to Holly. For Gildersleeve. (Mind if I use that as a character name sometime?)

Holly said...

Cool, a point, how fun.

Gildersleeve is a great name, the kind of name you would expect to see in a Shakespeare play... or on the collar of a big tabby cat.
