I'll let you in a little revelation about my favorite usernames in my virtual sites. First is about my Mikimoto Angel pen name. Mikimoto is a famous brand of pearl accessories in America. I first saw that brand in Vogue Magazine. I got mesmerized by that label, and I thought of using it. I just added Angel from my name "Angela". Thus, the formation of Mikimoto Angel.For my other pen name Mystic Nymph, the word mystic really came from the show Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog. I used to be so hooked to that show. I am also obsessed with mythologies, and nymphs are mythical creatures depicted as beautiful young women who are considered as guardians of objects and places in nature. Thus, the evolution of Mystic Nymph.

One Lonely yet Lovely Song
I’ve had this song in my play list for three years already. I heard this song four years ago on my favorite radio station, NU 107, and instantly fell in love with it. I didn’t know the title and the artist of this song, because the DJ wasn’t telling it. All I know is that it has “Sleeps with Butterflies” in the chorus, not knowing that it’s actually the title. Good thing the Internet was already up and running that time. It's the only Tori Amos song I know. Too bad, right?
This song reminds me of the melodramatic memory I had with my first boyfriend. When he said he no longer wanted me as his girlfriend, and that he didn’t see our relationship working out, this song was being played. The lyrics, “I’m not like the girls that you’ve known” struck me. It was like something inside me wanted to scream, and urge him to listen to the song so that he would know what I felt. Tori Amos was like my spokesperson that very moment, although I know my ex was not paying attention to the song.
