Most of my online “presence” is under the screen name or user ID MadJamison or the hyphenated version Mad-Jamison. That’s me on Facebook, LiveJournal, WordPress, and some others not worth mentioning. But it’s the Twitter ID “OUR_LORD” that has the potential to get me into trouble. It’s an embarrassment to my other identities, and I don’t know what I was thinking when I started the whole thing. But it’s quite popular, and I’ve got quite a few followers for not working on it that much. I log onto Twitter sometimes after a month of inactivity and sure enough the faithful are still mentioning me, giving me #followfriday love, or asking each other where I am these days.
I’ve always kept that identity separate until now and it’s only just starting to seep under the door into my MadJamison identity. A couple of people on Facebook are aware of it, I think, and a couple of you on WP have become part of the short circuiting of my separate selves. I don’t think I want to create a WP account for “OUR_LORD“. He’s in enough trouble already with just the Twitter account.
I think what I wanted to do here, with this post, was a “coming out” of sorts, to see if y’all would still like me after knowing I was OUR_LORD. I promise I’m not going to flamboyantly flaunt it on WP. I may never even mention it again. But…if you’re on Twitter, feel free to look me up and say hello. I don’t turn down follow requests, and I always follow back, unless you’re some misogynist weirdo, or God-forbid, another deity. Ok, I feel better now. Be gentle.
