About

What's the deal with your nickname? How did you get it? If your nickname is self-explanatory, then tell everyone when you first started using the internet, and what was the first thing that made you say "wow, this isn't just a place for freaks after all?" Was it a website? Was it an email from a long-lost friend? Go on, spill it.

My nickname was given to me by my parents. It is curiously similar, some will note, to the name that appears on my birth certificate. It is, however, pronounced entirely more quickly, owing to an absence of the caesura that a "space" customarily suggests.
