Name this Meme

I’ve been meme-tagged by Dana Fredsti. Sometimes memes can be too long and take a lot of thinking to answer (hey! that’s difficult if you’re not a morning person). But this one was short, fun, and interesting. So, here are my answers. And I’ve tagged two people (clicking away real fast won’t get you off the hook!), so read to the end to find out if you’re a victim…er, chosen one.

1. Your real name: Helen

2. Your Gangsta name:(first 3 letters of real name plus izzle) Helizzle (Gansta Helizzle duza fizzle)

3. Your Detective name:(fave color and fave animal) Blue Guinea Pig (Does this really sound like a detective’s name? He’d probably shorten it to Blue Guinea.)

4. Your Soap Opera name:(your middle name and street you live on) Ilene Elizabeth (I opted for a street I used to live on. I sort of like this. Maybe I’ll use it when I decide to write Romance.)

5. Your Star Wars name:(the first 3 letters of your last name, first 2 letters of your first name) Ginhe (This could actually be a Star Wars character.)

6. Your Superhero name:(your 2ND favorite color, and favorite drink) Green Chai (Faster than an elephant, more organic than a garden tomato, spicier than a Chihuahua, it’s Green Chai!)

7. Your Iraqi name:(2ND letter of your first name, 3rd letter of your last name, 1st letter of your middle name, 2ND letter of your moms maiden name, 3rd letter of your dads middle name, 1st letter of a siblings first name, and last letter of your moms middle name) – Eniormr (Maybe if I’m an Iraqi Star Wars character.)

8. Your Witness Protection name:(parents middle names) Esther Gordon (Ah, come on, with a name like that, what could I possibly have done to be in the witness protection program?)

9. Your Goth name:(black, and the name of one of your pets) Black Ruffles (Which is scarier – Helizzle or Black Ruffles?)

Okay, this was fun and not difficult. I want to know the Goth name for:
Sylvia Dickey Smith
Lillie Ammann

You’re tagged.


  1. I like Ginhe—so strong and wise. But the Goth part of this meme needs updating, because women name their pets things like Ruffles and Magoo. Maybe it should be "black plus the thing you fear most." Black Snake, Black Death, Black Nun ....

  2. LJ, Lately, my Goth name would be: Black Mosquito. We've had no rain in forever and yet I keep spotting mosquitoes in the house.

    The only animal that has ever terrorized me was when I was a mermaid, so I guess my real Goth name could be Black Swan.

  3. Ha ha, your name combos were especially cool. Fun stuff. Hey, don't think I ever told you this, but love your blog name - Straight from Hel. Tee hee.

  4. Helen,
    I got a kick of your names ... and I'll post mine next week.

  5. Thank you Marvin. I debated about the blog name. Should I just go with Helen Ginger? Will some folks be turned off by the "Hel"?

    As you can see, I went with it anyway.

  6. Hello Lillie! Or should I say Lilizzle? Now that's cool.

  7. My soap opera name is Howard 64th.

  8. Sounds almost royal. Henry the 8th...Howard the 64th.
    As long as there's no Off With Their Heads.

  9. If 63 of us were tolerated prior to my appearance on the scene, perhaps us Howards were fairly benign.

  10. Yeah, that's what Henry said to Anne Boleyn. And you know what they say, the pen is mightier than the sword. ;-)

  11. Black Ruffles, I want YOU at my GOth Ball!

  12. I am SO there. I've never been to a goth ball. What kind of wine should I bring? Clearly, something dark and red.

  13. Ooh I like Black Ruffles! A pirate maybe?

  14. Not sure I have this procedure down, but I did the exercise! Black Shadow, hmmm, rather stating the obvious, eh?

  15. Black Shadow sounds more Goth than Black Ruffles, even if it's Black Ruffles, the Pirate!

  16. Helen,
    My post is up. Black Kitty sounds about as scary as Black Ruffles.
