The TRUE Meaning of My Name

My bloggy friend, Jessi, just did this on her blog and I couldn't resist. I quickly clicked the link to reveal the hidden secret to my name. I added in a few of my own comments in red. Here it goes...



What Shelley Means



You are the total package - suave, sexy, smart, and strong. [EXACTLY what I think every morning when I look in the mirror]

You have the whole world under your spell, and you can influence almost everyone you know. [This truly was written just for me. You may not know it, but you too are under my spell. That's why you keep coming back over and over again. Don't fight it. I have you mesmerized.]

You don't always resist your urges to crush the weak. Just remember, they don't have as much going for them as you do. ["Crushing-the-Weak" is actually my middle name. But you probably figured that out by now.]



You are truly an original person. You have amazing ideas, and the power to carry them out.

Success comes rather easily for you... especially in business and academia. [If by success you mean showering almost every day and not completely losing my cool when the kids do everything in their power to push me over the edge, then heck yeah success comes easily!]

Some people find you to be selfish and a bit overbearing. You're a strong person. [Overbearing and selfish. Check and check.]



You are friendly, charming, and warm. You get along with almost everyone. [Getting a little warmer. There are very few people I don't get along with. Unless I'm pregnant. But really, can you blame me? It's all those raging hormones. Charming may be a bit strong. It's a bit difficult to be charming with baby drool dripping off the nursing tank top I've worn for two days straight. I'm pretty sure I've got the "box guy" (UPS man) eating out of the palm of my hand though.]

You work hard not to rock the boat. Your easy going attitude brings people together. [I'm really not big on water. I can't swim so I try to avoid boats. Oh, we're talking metaphorical boats here? Then, again, we're pretty close to the mark here. I like to think of myself as a people-bringer-togetherer.]

At times, you can be a little flaky and irresponsible. But for the important things, you pull it together. [I resent being called flaky! Just because I forget to feed Big One lunch occasionally or can't remember the last time I showered does not make me flaky. Ok, I may forget a few birthdays. But who doesn't?]



You are relaxed, chill, and very likely to go with the flow. [Chill. Yes. Very chill. A preschooler and a baby will do that to you.]

You are light hearted and accepting. You don't get worked up easily. [Hubs will definitely veto this one. Light hearted and accepting, yes. That last part though? Not so much.]

Well adjusted and incredibly happy, many people wonder what your secret to life is. [People are ALWAYS asking me what my secret is. Especially when I'm cruising the aisles of Target, hair in a ponytail, clothes only slightly disheveled. Even more so when I'm chasing Big One down the toy aisle, hurling threats of him never again seeing the light of day, all while bouncing Little One in her sling in an attempt to minimize her blood-curdling screams to a dull roar. Oh yeah, I make people jealous wherever I go!]



You are a free spirit, and you resent anyone who tries to fence you in. [Isn't there a song about not fencing me in?]

You are unpredictable, adventurous, and always a little surprising. [People are always wondering what in the heck I'm going to do next. But usually they have the mental ward on standby.]

You may miss out by not settling down, but you're too busy having fun to care. [I'm pretty sure I'll never settle down. I'm so far from it it's not even funny.]

Oh, I am SO doing this! I can't wait to find out about my name! By the way, when they do call the mental hospital, and they put you in your straight jacket, just think of it as giving yourself a BIG HUG! ;-)
Lol, you're so funny, bloggy friend!

I think I enjoyed reading your commentary more than reading what the "game" said. You are too funny, my friend, too funny!
