Hey, What About the New Name?greenspun.com : LUSENET : Hedgehog Talk : One Thread
Now, everyone is answering the Dancin' Fool question, which is great, but nobody is commenting on my new front page and my new journal title and my general biscuit-osity! C'mon guys, hate it or love it?
-- Kymm Zuckert (firstname.lastname@example.org), June 02, 2000
Well, I guess it's okay, but it did cause an unfortunate flashback to that Anthony Hopkins line from The Road to Wellville... hope that doesn't ruin it for everybody.
-- Colin (email@example.com), June 02, 2000.
No flashbacks for me, I love it! And I'm not just saying that 'cause I maked the pitcher on the front page. (But. . . somehow, because it's still Hedgehog.net, my head has insisted on morphing the two names together all morning. Kymm's journal, Sweet Hedgehog Biscuits! You'll not see nothing like!)
-- Saundra (firstname.lastname@example.org), June 02, 2000.
The Road to Wellville? What about The Road to Wellville? Do not taint my lovely new name with the thought of the worst movie ever made! I don't even want to know...
Have some Sweet Hedgehog Biscuits instead.
-- Kymm (email@example.com), June 03, 2000.
Sweet as a biscuit. It's. It's, well it's sweet. A sweet, cute name. But...Kymm, I'm sure you're sweet and wunnerful, but I don't see sweetness being your main characteristic, as such.
Something more suitable? Hmm.
"Funky as a Chicken?"
"Groovy as All Get-Out?"
"Bad-Ass as Anything?"
"Way too Obsessed With Gladiator?"
I submit the above as Kymm's name for next month. Royalties can be emailed to me in the form of an Amazon.com gift certificate.
But the graphics really are terrific. Really lovely, Saundra.
-- Jen (firstname.lastname@example.org), June 03, 2000.
I vote for "Way too Obsessed With Gladiator" myself.
-- Kymm (email@example.com), June 04, 2000.
I'll be honest - I hate the new name. Kymm, your journal is the best (hands down) on the web but if it had been called "Sweet as a Biscuit" the first time I ever surfed in, I would have never come back. Too cutesy for anybody over twelve years old. To me, you'll always be "The Mighty Kymm".
The "Way too obsessed with Gladiator" title could grow on me, though.
-- Macno (firstname.lastname@example.org), June 04, 2000.
Wait - perhaps:
"The Mighty Kymm - You'll Not See Nothing Like Her Obsession With Gladiator!"
Doesn't it just sing?
-- Jen (email@example.com), June 04, 2000.
Well, as long as we're all being so honest here, I'll throw in with the "not digging it" crowd. To me, it is a combination of "awwww isn't that cute?" and "what the fuck does THAT mean?".
Just my two cents...
-- Rob Rummel-Hudson (firstname.lastname@example.org), June 04, 2000.
Let me explain the title a bit better, why it jumped out at me so, and no, it wasn't because Russell Crowe said it.
First of all, it's just a great combination of words, it has a rhythm that strikes me, and the sounds work well together. I also like it because it's not an American expression, and it means something different in American English, so it's a layered phrase. There's a cookie biscuit that's supposed to be sweet, and there's a Southern biscuit that isn't, but it can be when you make a strawberry shortcake with it. Also, biscuit can be a sexual expression, I mean calling a girl a biscuit, and I like that.
And also, Russell Crowe said it. But that's not the main reason. It sings in my head.
-- Kymm (email@example.com), June 04, 2000.
I am afraid to admit this, but images of the Biscuit from Ally McBeal keep racing through my head. Maybe I just watch too much TV. It is your space and your name. I thought though you were going to change the main page, the one with your forehead on it, what happened to the little hedgehog character?
-- Jane Smith (firstname.lastname@example.org), June 04, 2000.
I like it. I would have preferred "Like a Baby Duck," but I like "Sweet as a Biscuit" just fine.
-- Beth (email@example.com), June 04, 2000.
Well I sort of liked the 'If you bring me another beer ....' part of the quote but htat may be just because I'm Irish - much as I hate to reinforce stereotypes and all.
Kym - end of the day - it's your journal. You pick the name and once you like it nothing else should matter.
-- Caoimhe (firstname.lastname@example.org), June 04, 2000.
Well, as it's named after an Oz expression used by a cool Antipodean actor, what's not to like? Sweet as a biscuit, she'll be right!
-- Amanda Page (email@example.com), June 04, 2000.
Caoimhe, I cannot believe that you spelled my name wrong in my very own forum! You shall be punished!
-- Kymm (firstname.lastname@example.org), June 04, 2000.
Hummm, not sure if being sweet as a biscuit comes to mind FIRST when thinking of you but it reminds me of the WORST pickup line ever heard by a friend which was "you look so good I want to put you on a plate a sop you up with a biscuit"......
-- Michelle Matzeder/Wilde/Bruner (email@example.com), June 05, 2000.
Chele, you just have too many names! It's funny to see friends from my regular life posting in here, like you and Robert. I got your check yesterday, by the way.
-- Kymm (firstname.lastname@example.org), June 05, 2000.
I really think "Sweet as a Biscuit" is just swell for all the reasons she outlined; also seems to fit with Kymm's love of the same books I read compulsively as a girl (like, um, I can't recall at the moment-- Anne of Green Gables and such?).
-- deb (email@example.com), June 05, 2000.
Yeah, I like it. And I go very well with anything that comes from Russell Crow...gorgeous man that he is...New Zealander and all that, but hey, we Aussies claim the Kiwis when they do anything great.
Can't wait to go and see Gladiator..will see it again and again and again....and there's nothing wrong with that !
-- Diane (firstname.lastname@example.org), June 05, 2000.
I like both. I think it's a clever little expression, and the vintage images are pretty.
-- Joy (email@example.com), June 05, 2000.
Yes, I like the new name,.....sweet as a biscuit,....yep you are one smart sweet cookie! Good name change Kymm!
-- Jackie (firstname.lastname@example.org), June 06, 2000.
I like the new name, I like the new design. But it's the writing that brings me back every day!
