My Name is Misty


My name is Misty.

M-I-S-T-Y

It's not Missy.

Or Mitsy.

People not from 'round here often ask what it's short for.

Or if it's a nickname.

It's just Misty.

You know, like, "It's a little misty outside."



What the heck would Misty even be short for?

I made the mistake of asking once.

Someone actually said Mystical.

Really, lady from Massachusetts?

You think my parents named me Mystical?



I often hear, "My dog's name is Misty."

Or, "I've always wanted to slip a twenty to a girl named Misty."

Yes, that's right.

Pets and strippers are named Misty.

But sometimes, people are too.



Why are there GIFs of Jennifer Lawrence throughout this post?

Because she's AWESOME.

Duh.




This post from Max, a girl, prompted me to write this today.

All of the gifs just made my day. I especially love the Hunger games one. I want it on my phone so she can keep doing whatever she is doing.

April said...

You and Jennifer made a great team in this post - ha ha ha!!

Kelly @ turned UP to ELEVEN! said...

HA! This post is great, especially with the gifs of JLaw!

I will be honest, my childhood cat (one of my favorite cats of all time) was named Misty. She was grey, and lovable and my BFF so hopefully you don't take offense when I say that. At least she helps me get your name correct, right?

I think Misty is a great name, even if it isn't short for Mystical. That would be ballin' ok not really.

Chloe said...

I love this. My mom's name is Misty and she gets the same things. Since my name wasn't popular when I was little people always did the "my pets name is Chloe!" bullshit. I don't care - is that even a compliment? Lol. My favorite though was when my Gma told somebody she was working with that she was going to dinner with Misty and Chloe and they said "You're going to dinner with strippers?" Bahahaha

Shelley said...

Lol I love the J Law clips. I never thought your name was a nickname!

Heather T. said...

I enjoyed your blog, but I just want to say that I think any blog that tells a tale through Jennifer Lawrence gifs is just the best blog ever <3

Would love a follow back, Mistical! :-P

Misty Vastine said...

My name is Misty and my sisters name is Missy and I get seriously pissed when someone calls me Missy lol Older people like to call me Mitsy drives me nutty!

Gyps said...

Two comments:
1. I believe you just helped my name my unborn child...Mystical.
2. No joke, my husband and I (well ok it'll probably be me) will be creating a google account once we choose a name for said child so he/she doesn't run into the same 'mine was already taken' snafu.

Parker said...

YES!!! Great post.

With a girl named Cole people love to ask if her name is "really" Nicole. And I always say, "No" since her name is just C-O-L-E...

Annie said...

This totally cracked me up...you are too funny :) And I'm sure that all must get pret-ty annoying!

Teri M said...

So funny!

Meghan said...

I flipping love this post. People are so stupid. Ugh.

Lisa - respect the shoes said...

My BF's name is Rusty, and granted his full name is Russell, there's a reason he introduces himself as "Rusty." Because that's what he wants to be called. What's the big deal, people? A name's a name!

Lindsey said...

LOL! I get called Wendy a lot. How the crap does one confuse Lindsey and Wendy?

Deals, Steals and Heels said...

when i was younger and i told people my name was Hayley, they'd try and spell it Haley.

now that everyone and their mother has given their child a moronic spelling of a regular name, i STILL have to spell it out because it's not haylee or haileigh or hay-le or any other crazy thing.

Ashtyn Nicholson said...

I love this! Totally made my day! People always are asking me why my mom gave me a boy name, guess what people, my name is Ashtyn not Ashton. There is a total difference, lol!

Kat@shop.school.sleep. said...

Dinah Gacon said...

Jennifer Lawrence gifs are awesome.

I never thought of Misty being short for anything. People are weird.

Rach @ This Italian Family said...

Mystical... oh wow... there are no words!

CaninesCouture said...

LOL I totally feel ya. My name is Julia but people always call me Julie. I always have to say, actually it's JuliA, which is so annoying because they're two totally different names.

Found you on the Bloglovin' hop!! Excited to have found you.

Christine Bewley said...

And now I've got some Mystikal singing in my head... "You keep bumping me against the wall, yeah I know I let you slide before..."

I get called ChristinA. I just let it go now, but when I was a little kid, I'd get so irritated and yell at them that my name was ChristinE.

Kelly Tempel said...

loving the video clips...cracking up!!!!!!!

Christina said...

Hahaha! This is awesome. Love the gifs!! I've always gone by Christina. One cousin got away with calling me Chris. That's it. It's not Christy or Christine. There's an a at the end! I did go by my initials, CJ, for a while with some friends. One still calls me that even though I've been CM for almost 7 years.
