This is what everybody else came up with on the following theme : Explain why you chose your blog’s title and what it means to you.
My blog name.
Where did it start.
It started in 2009 when I came back to South Africa after my sojourn in Iraq. I wanted a funky mail address – one that does not contain my name in any way, shape or form. Because my dude had such a mail address.
When he sent me an e mail, what I would see in my inbox was that funky name. Something personal to him. Something that’s owned just by him. It was so great seeing that name in my yahoo mail inbox. It was usually just a tidbit of his day, or a response to one of the mails I sent him. But it was good times.
So I chose 68ghia. The year I was born and my favourite car in the whole world – a Karmen Ghia. Blood redexterior, fawn interior, whitewall tyres. That’s a dream I have had since about forever. To restore my own car and me and the car can grow old gracefully together.
Of course, my dude went his own way, and I started blogging. About the loss and the sadness, and the heartache and the loneliness. And I had to get a blog name. So I decided on 68ghia as a perfectly good nom du guerre.
I know the name on this blog is jaycee68, just because it would not accept my 68ghia name. But I’m answering everything as 68ghia. I have a few friends that know me as Ghia and not by my actual name. When I started blogging it was on a different platform. One that’s since been disbanded for all intents and purposes.
I’ve used that name on all my numerous forays into the murky world of online dating.
All that is over now. I suppose, in looking at if from afar, maybe it’s time for me to move away from 68ghia and choose something else. Then again, why would I want to? It would be like changing your telephone number after however many years.
I think I’ll stick to my nic – everybody worth knowing knows me by it 😉
Long days and pleasant nights to all…
The song i chose to play tonight is a trance song. Just lovely. But the video is spectacular!! ven if you don’t like trance, the vid is worth watching 😉
