The Name Game – A Nano Poblano Blog Hop

The Name Game – A Nano Poblano Blog Hop

Cheney from Blog Apocalypse tagged me for the name game post, now my brain is churning to get some creative juices or will I tell the truth about this name or will I be telling porky pies?

True Love

Now as some of you will know, I have a bad back, yup a pain in the ass, sorry back!

Because of this I have been unable to wear a bra for omg 3 years, I was actually going to plague my followers on my It’s a lonely place blog with this story but seeing as I just got nominated for this it seems to tie in well, but accept my apologies in advance.

So getting back to the name game story, there is a lovely little shop not too far away, called True Love. It does sell the most delectable underwear, every time I go past I pine, having been a great underwear collector from basques, bras and the rest, only now to sit in a chest excuse the pun and collect dust.

I decided enough is enough, before I start tripping over these things surely I can find something nice and soft that wont set off those nerve endings.  I walked in with trepidation knowing the mamas would have to come out and be scrutinized.

However my fears were sidetracked by the cheerful Irish toned voice of “Good afternoon, welcome how may I help you, I am Marie TrueLove”.

At first I thought she must just be saying the shop name as part of her welcome, but this went on three or four times and I eventually said “Is your surname really True Love?”, feeling my cheeks redden with a tinge of embarrassment at possibly being very naive.

She said “Yes, its my husbands name, how convenient right to have such a name and a lingerie shop?”


I leave you wondering whether this is a true or false tale…..

BTW I don’t emmanate this jpg, thankfully, not yet, not quite yet…grins x

I am tagging siriusbizinus from amusing nonsense to participate in the Name Game Blog Hop next! Here are a list of rules that you should probably choose to follow if you’re a good blog hop blogger, which I guess I’m not:

  1. Write a paragraph or two about somebody from an ordinary walk of life with an unordinary name. It can either be a true story about somebody you know with that name, or a fictional piece about somebody with a name you made up.
  2. After you’re done posting your story, send me an email to with your Blog Hop II, your blog name and either TRUE STORY or MADE IT UP in the subject line.
  3. Pick another Nano Poblano team member from the home blog roll page and tag them on their About page. Try to spread the wealth around from Fish of Gold’s original blog hop to start, but duplication is OK as the month rolls along.
  4. The writing cutoff is Nov. 28. By the end of Nov. 29, email to me at a list with a guess of TRUE STORY or MADE UP for each post on the blog hop. Put Blog Hop II, Final Guesses in the subject line.
  5. The Nano Poblano team member with the most correct answers wins a special prize, which I will mail to them. That means you will have to email me your address if you win.
  6. Add your link to the chain of writers.
  7. Have fun.

Here are the list of participants so far:

    Did you find a bra that you can wear? Funny story and name, I could spend hours in a lingerie shop, so many pretty things.

      yes me too its like a sweet shop to me. I was actually going to post it on my other Its a lonely place blog, more with a serious note, as actually being unable to wear a bra has been very difficult, its not just about the practical side, ie support, but also the fact that one likes to wear pretty things too. Its not necessarily for other people but just for ones oooomf you know? Its feminine. I did in fact get a few bras and vest type things. All around my rib cage especially just under my bust were inflammed, so having anything around there made me feel like I was in a corset, the pain was just terrible. Things are moving on though and the sensitivity is not so bad, so i got some really pretty lace bandeau type things with thin straps in different colours. They don’t support much but they do give ‘some’ shape which is great and some amazing vests from Woolford, omg they cost a fortune but wow they give amazing shape and you can pop these amazing soft cups in that stop the peekaboo moments that happen when not wearing a bra lol. x

    I can’t stop looking at the cartoon lady. It’s like that old lady is a double hermaphrodite wearing pasties on the tips. It’s like a train wreck. I might have to steal it so I can look at it whenever I need to.

    Bahahaa! That’s great. I’m going with it’s a true story.
    I can’t believe that you don’t have to wear a bra! I consider that SO LUCKY. The first thing I do when I get home from anywhere is rip my bra off and say good riddance. I would LOVE to not have to wear a bra, but alas, people would think I have nuts. Well, nuts around my belly button, but still. My tatas hang too low. 😦

    Thanks for doing this! Mark will be happy you kept it alive!

I used to collect lingerie and shoes and erm bags haha…I suppose life is cheaper now, but actually i got some lace style bandeau ones with different straps, really pretty maybe you might find that type nicer to wear? x
