So I’ve made a decision: I’m going to change my last name. Since getting married in September, I’ve put off this step partly because I’m really lazy for long processes, but mostly because I love my last name. It’s artsy and ethnic and I love saying it and signing it. So today I had a long talk with my last name. We took a walk on Alki and we laughed over memories, like how many times I’ve received credit card applications in Spanish. At dinner, I lit some votive candles, played Barry White and served roasted pork tenderloin with watercress and cranberry chutney. Then I carried my last name to bed and we made sweet sweet love because that’s the only way you say good-bye.
new year, new name.
