    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.

    Personally, I didn't see any of those things until you pointed them out. And I still won't even if someone actually decides to call her JLip. *shrugs*

    JLo (Jennifer), JGar (Jennifer), JLaw (Jennifer), JLip (Julia).

    JuLip sounds nice.

    JFlutz sounds more appropriate in her case

    Sorry, no harm intended, just couldn't help myself.
    I have nothing against Julia and flutzes don't bother so much either.

    I'm all for JuLip!

    You are even better!! YES!!! Let's call her JuLip!!! Krislite is a rock star. Perfect. Noted. Brilliant. (I could never get away with that one, although I am technically Jewish, but have it!!!!) Love it, and it is all in good fun.

    Seriously am I the only one to feel weird calling her Lip? I love JuLip. Definitely the trademark! Thank you, you saved me from banned dom, Kristi. I lurve Doris and Mathman. You took the heat, since it didn't start well...

    JuLip's like Mint Julep-associations all good, and with owners of Kentucky Derby winners!

    Oops, no. JuLip sounds cute but it apparently is very offensive, considering we are talking about a possible Jewish girl skating to
    Schindler's List. I am ethnic Ashkenazi and I didn't even pick up on it. I am embarrassed that I didn't pick up on it, if it was indeed a joke. Let's just call her JLip. A couple of fellow Jewish people contacted me and I realized it wasn't appropriate. JLip? You absolutely can not call her JuLip when she is skating to Schindler's List. Maybe next season when she finds another Sasha free skate...

    I dunno, seems pretty innocent to get offended by. Julip is a great book by Jim Harrison too, with a great female lead character by the same name.
