You may have noticed that I've stopped using the online name "Stay Puft." I am now using the name "Sean Pford." I hope you don't think this means I'm not being true to myself. On the contrary. Stay Puft wasn't my real name at all. It was merely my nom de plume. (That's French for "name de plume.") And while I never intentionally meant to mislead anyone, I HAVE heard from an AWFUL lot of Ghostbusters fans who have been disappointed at all the wrestling and the lack of ghostbusting.
I'm excited about this fresh start. I've got a name now! A wonderful name I've mentioned before, by the way. That even derives from Stay Puft. And I'm sure "Stay Puft" is probably copyrighted anyway, so where would THAT land me when I become famous?
Actually, very little will change around here. My initials are even the same, so those of you who called me "SP" can keep right on doing so (that always made me feel special). In fact, I've heard that when people change their names, they often keep something similar (such as the same initials) as a means to preserve their identity. (Well, they said that on MTV's "Teen Wolf," but they've never lied to me before.) I have a very shallow online footprint, so the "Stay Puft to Sean Pford" thing will also be happening on all the social media I never use, and will affect very few.
I don't think I can sum things up any better than Michelle Pfeiffer's Catwoman (and there's someone else with a silent P in their name!):
