New Blog Title

Ever had one of those days when everything makes you cranky? Tonight it was my blog title (actually, I've been sick of it for a long time). So what do you think of the new one?

By the way "Medieval Woman" comes from my mishearing of the lyrics of the ELO song "Evil Woman." This, so I understand, is called a "mondegreen," and there is an entire site devoted to them. My favorite remains "There's a bathroom on the right" for "There's a bad moon on the rise," and "Like a ham and mustard shake" for "Like a hand in rusted chains."

Susan, you crack me up!

As for the blog name...I like it! It's catchy, descriptive and very professional. I'm totally impressed:)

Susan,

Hey, that's cool! And, BTW, I know about "mondegreens" I learned about those on an anthropology e-mail list I happen to inhabit, for reasons I won't go into here, but which have to do with the kind of book I'm writing. . . .

Anyway, I'm adding your site to my blogroll!

LOL at the Mondegreens - and how it influenced the title of this blog. My friend always used to sing 'Reverend Moojees' for 'Forever in Blue Jeans'.

I like the new title. :)

Susan Higginbotham said...

Thanks, all! Anerje, I always used to hear that one as "Reverend Blue Jeans."

Hi, Susan. Perfect blog name.

Just call me angel of the morning, baby
Just brush my teeth before you leave me, baby.

I hear it the same way, actually.
