Origin of 'SamiJoe'
Kat at Today's Cliche (if you haven't checked it out, it is a fab his/her blog!) was asking how i acquired the name 'SamiJoe'. So i thought this might be a great way to introduce myself to all of my newcomers !!
Recognize this lady?
Did you know that her 'breakout role' was playing a character named, Sammy Jo Carrington on the show Dynasty (1981-1989)?
Well, being a child born in 1977... with the name 'Samantha', my mother lovingly adorned me with this nickname (at least i HOPE adoringly, i don't know much about the character!). Let's just say she was a fan of Dynasty. No one called me this name at school; nor anywhere else. Just my mom.
Fast forward to years later, when i needed an online Username. SamiJoe just seemed to fit. Obviously the spelling is different (Sammy Jo vs. SamiJoe); however, there is just something not me in Sammy. And Jo just didn't seem quite finished. I also dropped the space entirely and added an 'e' to Joe.
That said, she's not a bad looking chiquita to be nicknamed after. Except for maybe THAT hairdo.
I usually only hear Samantha from my hubby or 'teacher' types.
you're the only one that calls me SJ!
Sorry for the ramble , I have no excuse!
Now I know the reason! Thanks SamiJoe! ;)
