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 is also my baptismal name and my SCA name. No, I'm not a Fairey-wings wearing geek. I'm a Medievalist.

Some of you may know me as the user who held the contest.

I'm also a doofus - see also my embryonic MeFi identity. I apparently forgot that I'd created a user ID and so created another one. How the heck was I supposed to know that being 4597 would someday be cooler than being 6604? (I do still use 4597 from time to time to post to AskMe. *shrug*)

My son was born in July 2006. He's my whole world. You'll here me talk about him a lot now, and I'm sure there are some photos of him here on my Flickr feed. If you're a Metafilter mommy and want to talk about mommy stuff, drop me a line.
