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.

Farishta is the last name of a character in a Rushdie novel I like. It means 'angel' in Farsi, my father's native tongue. It seemed appropriate at the time.
