    Can I ask permission to call dear Julia Lipnitskaya: JLip

    There are too many Julias and Yulias. And I don't like calling her Lip. So how about JLip? It will help my auto and self correct when I misspell Lipnitskaya.

    I will start calling her that.

    Because I started it? And you responded to it?

    Jess, do you not find it hard to type out these skaters' names? My computer controls it. I find it hard to call a 15 y/o "Lip". It bothers me. I think "JLip" is fun and contemporary.

    And Jess, why would you be such a B? (Obv B itter person. Go with it, or don't. Simple as that Jess)

    Yeah I have taken to calling Anna P "Pogo". I feel a little bad about it since I dunno that she'd want to be referred to as Pogo but it is both a lot faster and easier than typing out her whole last name.

    I just call Julia Julia mostly.

    I do join drivingmissdaisy in wondering why you thought this merited it's own thread though

    Eeee. I understand you mean well... right?

    However, I suggest no. When I saw the title, and until I finished reading all posts above, I took it as that you were implying that Julia is an embodiment of all things there are as a lipper (whether she lips or not).

    "JLip" suggests things weird in that context:

    1. First of all, "JLip" a play on "J-Lo"; simply an abbreviation comparable, but "Lip" straight out gives a technical term we're all too familiar.

    2. "Julia the Lipper", as if "Julia" is a feminine term replacing "Jack", and "Lipper" a play on "Ripper"; "Jack the Ripper" > "Julia the Lipper" > "JLip".

    ...So, nononono. I guess she needs a better surname.
