Arty McArtface!

Well, I don't know if you have seen the 'Boaty McBoatface' piece in the news recently? When the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) asked for suggestions via the internet for name suggestions for it's new research vessel, the front runner by a mile was Boaty McBoatface, far outnumbering more sombre and serious suggestions such as Endeavour, Henry Worsley, David Attenborough, Falcon and so on. After a little giggle, I moved on

However, yesterday I saw this other brilliant news item about the Portsmouth to Waterloo train which gave itself the name Trainy McTrainface, which certainly brought morning cheer to commuters. I really like this idea so for this week I am renaming myself Arty McArtface, which I think suits me very well and it much more fun than plain Bea Roberts.

What do you think? Does the new name / persona suit me? I rather think it does!
