I read many blogs in Outer Blogness before I started mine. I love the names and creativity everyone has, so I wanted to find a name for mine that was cool and depicted me best. I actually sat down with a paper and pencil and here are a few of the rejected ideas, although they were good, I thought. The name Sister Mary Lisa is hardly cool, but I decided I'd go for honesty over popularity here.

The name Sister Mary Lisa was given to me as a nickname by a co-worker I had at Albertsons when I was 17. I'd attend their parties and such and had a great time joking around, and playing practical jokes, and flirting with them, but I always maintained my Mormon standards while around them. One night they were teasing me for being prude and one of them said something like "Sister Mary Lisa wouldn't drink!" so the name stuck. But thankfully only that one guy ever called me it. And sadly it fits me to a T.
Until I decide to shake free of it.
