well my initials are BJ. And god knows I'll opt for receiving one of those....
2007-11-08 02:31:24 PM  
Shoot, I'm late to the game.

I dunno if it's subconscious choice because I know I like things that start with V. Except for vegans. They just irritate me.

Maybe that explains my love for mescaline, methamphetamine and methadone...

I don't really believe this article is that accurate.

However my initials are J.L.B. (formerly J.L.G.) and growing up I had a best friend with a J name. Her initials were J.L.F. Her whole entire family had J names. I have had only 2 boyfriends with non J names, the rest were all J's. My husband has a J name. I have always wanted a Jeep Cherokee... and I really like Jelly Bellies.

You folks do realize that this is a not a rule, just an unconscious trend.

Once people are aware of it, the trend ceases.
A better question is, "What are your 3 most favorite letters?"
Follow that with "Do you have a lot of items or associate yourself with things that have these matching letters as the first letter of the names of those things?

My initials are GAJ. They play no great part in any of my life. Last letters of my name are EWN. These also play no great part in any of my life.

My default brain configuration layout follows this pattern: LOGIC (Left Brain) overrules EMOTION (Right Brain) and both overrules INSTINCT (Brain Stem).

I would suspect that in these "Letter Life Choices", the configuration of the brains are most likely patterned after this form: INSTINCT overrules EMOTION and both overrules LOGIC. The other logical pick is INSTINCT overrules LOGIC and both overrules EMOTION.

My initials are SS but I have no desire to become a Nazi. Taking over the world, maybe.

my initials must be BS because I think this is Bull shiat.
2007-11-08 06:49:45 PM  
It's not my fault my initials are "BJ"...
2007-11-08 07:08:56 PM  
My initials are AG-Z (yes, hyphenated last name... bastard kid here). There's really nothing else I know that goes by those initials. So... I guess I've had to crave other things.
2007-11-08 08:21:08 PM  

but no, i don't think it really fits with me...

sure i own a few computers
drive a car(?!) but i've had a mitsubishi and a toyota so far. and i want a BMW

my grades have all been above C's

ok, i've lived in cities beginning with the letter C, but one was because my parents were from there, and i lived with them. the other is because i got a scholarship to the university there...

ideally i'd like to live in melbourne or brisbane (australia)

so yeah, load of horse shiat anyone?

not to mention i'm a scientist, and my aliases never have anything to do with my initials........ >

My real initials are DD -- hence the favorite parts of my wife.

/her double-ds, in case you're unsure
//her initials are DD too

my initials were going to be MAD until my parents realised... so then it became to WAD... but i think it was "meant to be".

/mum shouldn't have told me!
/Wants Another Dog!

I hated my middle name growing up and always wished it had been Michael instead of Sean. Then I realized my initials would be PMS. Suddenly, PSS sounded a whole lot better.

Naw, just kidding!

When your name starts with B you see your monogram on all kinds of tacky crap. B is the Greek letter beta, the Hebrew letter Beth, and the Egyptian demotic letter, bet, which is derived from the heiroglyphic bet. It represents a two-room house or temple, the most common form in Ancient Times. But it does look like Boobies! Or bollocks. Possibly even buns or brains or (lower-case b)a Brant Goose. Mmmmm...buns!

I am stumped on AG things.

Didn't realize this was my greenlight. (Different headline.)

4.5 years of nothing, then 2 main page greenlights in two days?

Fark is a fickle beast.
