I don't believe people think of you as "Simple Sharon". After
all, you have a large number of people who follow your posts

considered more as "Kind of Misguided Sharon", or perhaps,
"Teetering on the Edge Sharon". But, I for one, appreciate
your efforts to distinguish yourself from that other "sharon".
