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.

When I first MeFi'd I lived somewhere with a lot of penguins, and I like pies.

My profile pic is a photo of the bag custom made for me as a gift by malibustacey9999's daughter, after I suggested a name for her art business/hobby in an AskMe thread.

My first encounter with the e-interwebnet was in 1994 when a friend told me her inbox had been jammed full of pictures of cows and didn't work any more. I just nodded politely.

Still not much the wiser.
