I Realized This Way Too Late
Prayerdesign. I use this for everything. It’s my AIM screen name, my Twitter screen name, and an email address that I use when I want to register for wedding sites to see the dresses
and pretend I’m getting married to Eric from The Little Mermaid after he realizes that Ariel is not the girl for him because seriously, do you want to be with a girl who makes deals with terrifying octopuses and deserts her whole family just to hang out with you?, and I even used it on an OK Cupid account I had for like two weeks that I used to send probing, witty questions to people in my area to see if I had missed any cool people (I hadn’t). I’ve had prayerdesign for around five years now, and I just now realized that people probably think I’m some kind of super religious girl, which is the opposite of what I want.
It’s a David Bowie lyric, you guys. ”Columbine, my prayer design, I see you see me standing on my own.” It’s this whole Commedia dell’Arte thing, it’s beautiful. So, see, I’m not a super religious girl at all. Unless you count David Bowie as a religion. Which I do.
It looks like people were right all along. Praise Him.
