Slight rant

 All fathomable variations of my name that don't include a number (and yes, I tried incorporating periods, even in the middle of my first and last name, and apparently people saw fit to take that as well) are taken on Gmail. How can I make a semi-professional email address now?!?!
 
I have an .edu email, but it can't attach files larger than 5MB and it also has numbers, because apparently no less than 88 people with my first initial/last name attended this school before me.

I used firstname.lastname.mail on gmail when I needed a new email for resumes. email? inbox? some other inoffensive word?

@erinfizz:  Thanks. I feel slightly dumb now, but that's okay because I have a semi-professional email address to cover that up.

@Bigandtasty: Make an email address that isn't offensive but somehow humorous if you're having difficulty setting up one with your real name. Most employers don't care for your email, if they actually judge how professional you would be at the job based on your email address. Then frankly they are morons.
