One of my all-time favorite musicals is “Once Upon a Mattress“. Carol Burnett played Princess Winifred and her rendering of “Happily Ever After” was fantastic. I played that album over and over and over and over and learned every breath she took when she sang. Her plaintive cry of “And besides, I don’t wanna get out! I wanna get in!” spoke volumes to my soul. Here I am again, crying: I wanna get IN!!! Plurk has locked me out of my account, insisting that my password is incorrect. Plurk appears to have no rescue plan in place for people who have forgotten passwords (which I did NOT, by the way, as I had changed it and written it down recently). I have sent 3 emails and received no response. So big hiss and a boo to YOU, Plurk. That’s customer support?????
As I was trying in vain to get INto my Plurk account, I saw a twitter from one of my favorite celebrities – The Bronx Zoo’s Cobra. You may remember last year when the cobra decided that SHE wanted OUT. There was quite a stir until she was returned to her cage and renamed Mia. Mia has retained her wonderful sense of humor and is now writing for Paw Nation‘s animal site. Mia has a great article on the value of names. As I read that Twitter is (perhaps) purging RPer’s from its ranks, we may be in for another round of reminders about the beneficial aspects of pseudonyms.
