American Idle

It's kinda like American Idol, but only if you sing my posts out loud.

This is not the doobie77 you're looking for

It's bad enough when you have a great idea for a name (American Idle), but then find out at least 432 people thought of it before you did. Or when you try to get a personalized license plate at the DMV only to find out someone else has your nickname and you're stuck with "DOOB1E"

So you go through internet life thinking a handle like doobie77 is safe, but then you find out someone ELSE is also using that handle and telling revealing stories about themselves. If I could only sue for slander...

I would have thought that "wawar" would be fairly safe, and yet I find that one taken all the time, too. Jeez.

Also, what were you doing looking at that odd site?

It came about when I couldn't find my site in Google using "American Idle", so I tried just doobie77 to see what came back. Lo and behold....

And what the hell is "Wawar" anyway? You're not going Schopenhauer on our asses, are you?
