Hmmm this is normal! You’ve got issues with your name and regressing back to childhood only brings back traumatic memories of the name calling and feelings of being a misfit. So what do you do? You resent your parents of course for condemning you to a lifetime of isolation. But in a more practical approach you think about changing your name so you’re not forced to live a reclusive lifestyle with an abnormal amount of cats. So what’s the name of this cerazy person I hear you say? Gertrude? Fanny? Ivana Tankle? Amanda Huggenkiss? Nope, it’s Eileen De Bont. Perhaps it was the relentless renditions of Come On Eileen being sung at her on a daily basis that done it (?).
Eileen will let the winning bidder rename her and proceed to making it official by deed poll. I hope for her sake the winner’s not a prankster. Half of the money raised will go to Children In Need (surely there’s another way?), the rest, on Christmas. The kids will be spending their first Joyous Noel with mum’s new identity which could potentially be Scunthorpe Travelodge (completely her idea by the way). She’s completely comfortable with being named something ridiculous or after a company – if they bag the winning bid of course.
She says “Everyone thinks I’m wacky for doing this” – err you think?[via Digital Spy)
