You're A Womanizer, Baby

Last night I dropped by my parents' place to show off Wolfgang. Westy was there with his girlfriend (sorry Over-Thinker, he's cheating on you) so we hung out for a bit. My mom mentioned that they had received my Christmas card in the mail and she was surprised to see that I hadn't changed my last name.

(Two things: First, the reason I signed my first and last name in the card is because it was my company Christmas card. I design the company Christmas card every year and I always send one to my parents because it's the one tangible thing I do for work that I can show to my parents so they'll stop telling people I answer phones for a living. Secondly, it is no big secret that I haven't changed my last name and frankly, I'm surprised that she didn't know. I'm also surprised that she would think that I would change my last name (not that there's anything wrong with women changing their last name when they get married, it's just not for me.) End rant.)

The following exchange is just one of many reasons why my little brother cracks me up:

Westy: You didn't change your last name?

Me: No.

Westy: Gawd. You're such a womanizer.

Me: What the ... what?

Westy: You know, all about women's rights and stuff.

Me: Uhh...

Westy: What?

You heard it here first folks, I'm a womanizer and proud of it.


  1. So, if he ever gets called a womanizer, he will beam with pride and say thank you. Ha.

    If he's single, that may cause some problems on the dating scene. "Well, I'm a real womanizer..."

  2. I suppose that would also make you "Bitch'n" too

  3. When I get married I plan on changing my name, but that's just because I don't like how my first and last names sound together. Far too many vowels.

  4. That is awesome. I wish I had a better last name but sadly, mine sucks. Will happily drop it, though I, too consider myself a 'womanizer' by your brother's standards.

  5. My heart? Is crushed. It's like he just skated right on over it. And then after it was in 2 pieces, he smacked it into the goal. Dammit all to hell.


  6. haha! i'm a womanizer with the best of them too, then!

    i don't know where i stand on the name-change. i mean... i'm 28 already, so i'll be, you know, older than that if/when i get married. and 30+ years is a looong time to have a name. it will feel weird to give it up.

  7. It sounds like you're more of a chauvinist.

    I also plan on keeping my last name. And sometimes I worry that I want to get married just so I can keep my last name.

  8. That's awesome! I just came across your blog and you're writing is great!

  9. I always suspected you were a womanizer! But somehow I suspect that would have been the case whether you changed it or not.

  10. HAHAHA I Love It.

    and I'm only changing my last name if my husband's last name is super awesome... and I heart my last name so it will be a hard one to beat.

  11. I didn't change my last name. I've been married for almost 10 years now too. I still get crap from it. /sigh

    Glad to know I am a womanizer though. HAHAHA.

  12. Womanizer is now a synonym for feminist. Nice!

  13. "sorry over-thinker he's cheating on you" just got me. haha

  14. Little Brothers are fountains of maturity.

    I do love that song, however.

  15. In the immortal words of Inigo Montoya: " I do not think it means what you think it means."

    But in this case, I'm happy to be called a womanizer! (Oh, and I didn't change my name either, and three years later my grandmother is still addressing my mail to My First Name John's Last Name. Sigh.)

  16. Wait...you're a....womanizer?

    ..awesome. Can i be one too?
