I grew up believing my parents were playing some kind of sick joke on me, naming me Katie Kelly. I mean, it may sound cute now, but that’s only after years of evolving my character and not to mention therapy.
One time, when I was hanging out at Togo’s – because that is, for whatever reason, what we all did in high school (as well as the Butter Cup Pantry, but that was on Friday and Saturday nights) – this classmate of mine who worked there said, “Katie Kelly, what’s your last name?”
I stood there in silence, trying to make sure I understood his question correctly.
“Your name is Katie Kelly Kelly?”
I’m going to introduce you to three or four other Katie Kellys now who all have websites and blogs of their own. I am doing this so that you do not confuse us with each other if you were to meet us all one day, because, as I am sure if you were to ask any of us, we would tell you that there is no imitation!
- Superchick.com. Out of all the Katie Kellys, this one is my favorite because I have known of her the longest and also due to her ecclectic interests. Alas, she has not updated her website in eons, but this can be forgiven because something tells me she is off doing very interesting things. I wonder if she still likes galaxies. Katie Kelly says:
My name is Katie Kelly. I live in Powell River, on the west coast of Canada. Take out an atlas and look me up. See that little line showing the seperation between BC and the Pacific Ocean? That line is where I live. One of the most beautiful places I know.
“I like galaxies!” -me in May of 1999
- KatieKelly.com. FYI, Katie Kelly is playing at Kelly’s Pub & Eatery this December 23, 2005. Katie Kelly has not updated this site once in all this time and I think it’s about time she give this domain over to someone who might actually use it.
- KatieKelly.blogspot.com. Katie Kelly paints, cuts hair and loves pro bono. She also claims to have been abducted by a family of turtles in March of 2006. Katie Kelly, if you ever read this, can you please explain?
Well, that’s about it with all the Katie Kellys who are doing anything interesting. There’s one more blogging Katie Kelly, KatieKelly.typepad.com. She’s off to a good start I’d say, but she hasn’t updated her blog since September of 2004. She’s not pulling her weight.
