What Would You Nickname Yourself?

We would love to invite you to join a crazy gathering we are having today, whatever your name is or isn't.

I LOVE when people call me Janie, though the only people who do it regularly are Quincy Jones and my mom. And today this sweet barista.

I wish more people would call me that, but you can't make people nickname you something or it doesn't work the same. (I used to tell a guy I worked with -- you know who you are, David Spingarn -- that he couldn't make his nickname be Spin just because he wanted that to be his nickname and that nicknames have to be given to you by other people and are often not as flattering as Spin. But anyway.)

Because it is Wednesday, we are having our weekly gathering of all the crazy xoJane and xoVain characters you know from this site, where we gossip and bond and talk about what we like and don't like about our sites. That's at 2 pm today. And, as usual. you are invited!

Please come! As a special bonus, we all promise to call you whatever you want to be called -- just tell me what that is below, if you want to. Or just say you want to listen in and not be called anything at all. Or just tell me your favorite nickname and say, "I don't want to go to your damn meeting -- I have enough of my own, thanks." Either way, Lori or Olivia will pick one or two of you and give you the call-in number.

Talk to you later. xo Janie
