What's in a name?

Michelle is my name. Shell is my nickname. My mom always calls me Shell and still does today. Only when I'm in trouble, did I get called Michelle. Most of my friends call me Shell. I'm fine with being called either names.

Being named Michelle does come with a problem. Most of the time people feel the urge to sing the song "Michelle" by The Beatles. It got to the point, I got weary of people singing it to me. If you are a Michelle, you know what I mean. Though I am named after the Beatles song, I never really dug the song. I know that's sacrilegious for a Michelle to admit. Then a couple of years ago, I found a version that I loved by Will Downing. And I had a copy of it and lost the song when my old computer crashed. I found it on You Tube over the weekend!! (I do love You Tube.)

If I ever get a chance to have my own T.V. show called The Michelle Show or The Shell Show. I know that's such an original title!! This is to be my theme song. I already did a little slideshow on myspace with the song. Anyway, enjoy the song.
