What's an Umlaut you ask?
My name is Noël. My whole life I got called Nole, because people don't know what an umlaut is.
Go ahead ask me how funny it was when I was a little girl and a substitute teacher would call roll and ask if Nole was present? And then giggling from all the little kids in the class would ensue and I would think in my little head voice... Clearly, I am not a boy! Did I mention when I was a Senior in high school even though I wouldn't touch an ROTC program with a ten foot pole, I was sent military info? Oh and did I also mention that once when I went to a mega church a pastor who was an idiot in my book, sent me a letter addressed "Dear Man of God" LOL that still makes me laugh to this day. And yes, I did just call a pastor an idiot, because Pastors are people. Just like teachers, politicians, fire fighters who can all be idiots as well... but that's a topic for another day, and no I am not bitter.
Okay moving on,
Do you know what an umlaut is? You DO!? Well... aren't you just a smarty pants. If you don't know, it is the two dots that should go over the E in my name so it's pronounced Noelle rather than Nole. So if you see me sign off as No..el it's because, while on my I phone I can put the dots over the E in my name, My Maccy and I haven't figured that one out yet. Techy Maccy users feel free to jump in and help a girl out there.
Well and then a very good nick namer gave me this nick name No dot dot el a while back and, well like nicknames often do, that one, it just stuck.
So I am No..el. And I like olives. The End. Just kidding.
No I'm not.
Yes I am Just Kidding,
No I'm really not.
