“Nicknames you have and why you have them”
Over my years I’ve collected a great deal of nicknames, however many of them have gone the way of the original creators. Which is to say, well out of my life and the gods only know where!
There are a couple that I rather enjoyed though. Och, pronounced ‘oak’, which was short for Ochre was a favourite. Along with Blambie and Koinu.
These days I run mostly under variations my primary handle, which is Fallen Red Ninja. Some cats call me Red, others Ninja and even more call me Ninja-Pants.
The latter is one of my favourites, harking back to MUDS shenanigans and brilliantly paint spattered jeans from hours of painting set for various shows.
There’s also Ambydextrous, which was a nickname conferred upon me during my time at Radio Control.
I wowed one of the DJs with my ability to do all the things simultaneously, without dropping a beat in my banter, he made an awful joke involving my real name and how dexterous I was and it stuck.
Although my nickname was a damn sight better than some of the other kids, so I’m not complaining!
Someone who can complain about her nickname though, is Ms Sof. Read about her nicknames here and her thoughts on marriage and goats here.
Ms Briony Jae brings us one of my favourite art pieces here and a collection of many pretties here.
So, cats, any of you have interesting nicknames to share?
