So what it is it about guys named Derek.

For the longest time, every guy I would develop a crush on from a distance- would run into at the local cafe and drool over- was a dark-haired, green-eyed boy with a slim build who would turn out to be named Derek.
It was positively spooky- to the extent that if I started drooling over a guy, friends just refer to him as 'Derek' if nobody knew his name. And nine times out of ten (or 14 times out of 16, to be more accurate), they'd be right.

Went to pub last night w/ lemasquegris and vampirequeen and fuschiko and fiveinchpixie and wurmfood, for trivia night. The boy I'd noticed last time I was there was there again, and a bit of conversation happened.
Guess what this dark-haired green-eyed boy's name is.
Grr.

Anyone else have a name that just sort of plagues you like this, or do I live in a weird Jungian sub-basement?
