Thread: Anyone else miss Sasha?

  1. #1

    Wink Anyone else miss Sasha?

    Greta reminds me a lot of our favorite Serving Wench.... Still, doesn't feel quite the same. Know what I mean?

    The question is.... Which one is your favorite?

    I'll admit, not an easy choice. Considering how similar they are.

    Rose is my grandmother...

    The reason for the name change...

    I've been "Greta" more years than I have been any other name I've ever been called. My step-dad started calling me Greta when I was about 9 or 10 years old and it stuck. My license plate on my car is Greta... I have "Greta" tattoo'd on my shoulder... it is simply... ME!

    I had always thought that I'd like to change my username here but just never got around to it, I guess. Then I was reading a thread that the boys over at flashlightnews.net have going... (the pertinent parts start HERE)... where I guess they got bored (and just a tad bit obsessive) and decided to check me out on the world wide web. They came across my MySpace page and discovered that I am called Greta. So I figured, what the heck? It is me, afterall... no time like the present to change my username here!

    So that's it! A rather simple explanation... that unfortunately was prompted by some bored little boys with nothing better to do with their time but to stalk me around the net and speculate about matters that really are none of their business. I should thank them really... I've been wanting to do this for awhile now!

    Who's Joan?

    Well after reading that I guess I better stop donating (not). Thanks for the link. I was going to justify everything, CPF, donations, outages, on and on, but for whom, hell i'm just going to shut up. At least they don't get your blood pressure up Greta. I'm not so sure I would be so strong.

    Actually, I think he was and still is a good guy. Just decided to travel a different road. The 60's and erly 70's were interesting times. I think. They're still a little blurry.....

    Sasha or Greta is fine with me. The only other Greta I know is on Fox News. I'm sure she's not moonlighting over there...

    What's in a name.... as long as the personality stays the same.

    Must admit though that "Greta" reminds me of a kindly Grand-mother holding a large tray of warm, soft, delicious home-made cookies.

    Keep in mind, Greta is short for Margaret. The name Margaret might stir a different picture. It makes me think of Ray Steven's song "It's Me Again Margaret". If you haven't heard that, you might find it interesting.

    Presently, its available here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zs4P8WKbF-w

    Not that the Margaret pictured there is anything like our Greta; but the tune is fun.

    That's similar to my image of a Greta.

    "Sasha" makes me think of a babe who knows how to crack a whip while wearing spiked heels.

    Not that I ever imagined our Sasha doing such a thing.

    It's a pleasure to meet you Greta!
    Mama always told me not to look into the eye's of the sun.

    Greta,

    Doesn't matter what name you go by, as long as you are you!

    Sometimes, I am Matteblack,

    The rest of the time.........I'm Batman!

    Now, which one of you is it that owes me money?

    If memory serves, Sasha referred to Greta's pet dog (can't remember the breed). In the underground, I understood Sasha's real name to be Kelly or Kel for short.

    Now I'm baffled:

    Kel - Kelly - Sasha - Greta - ??

    Well, since you brought it up; I have heard a handful of the Old-Timers refer to her as Kel. Figured it was short for Kelly. But yeah, Kelly reminds me of Kelly Bundy.

    I'd say our favorite Serving Wench is quite a bit smarter.
