I'm pretty new to this and chose my user name before I realised everyone had such interesting names on here. I was just wondering if people would like to share the story behind their name......

Many years ago when I was working in meedja, I was having a discussion with some colleagues about being smart - apparently the more intelligent you are, the more ridged and pitted your brain is. The accusation levelled at me was that I was such a dumb-ass, that my brain was as smooth as an egg. hmm

Years (and career change) later, I'm still called by my MN name by some people...

I tend to say..... by the way a lot .... and after leaving when all the threads seemed to be doom and gloom and rehashing old things over and over and over - ended up with having to put a 1 on there.....

Thank you for the heads up BlameItOnTheCuervo, I will be careful with what I say. I wonder if they would be OK with me pointing people to Twitter if anyone is interested?

Thank you Empress, it is a really exciting time. I saw the illustrations last week which was pretty special smile
