I’m likely to be on forumosa for a while to come.
I appreciate forumosa for the opportunity to take part in true debate, to give and ask for sincere opinions and advice, to facetiously and slyly (and sometimes blatantly) annoy others, and to be Temped.
But I have a problem - I am freethinker and before me there was freethinker83. To avoid confusion in the future (read Nosy Neighbours to understand my fear of being confused with another), I think I will need to ask our revered leaders to allow me a moniker change.
Before I ask for a new handle though, I thought I’d ask for ideas from the forumosan clan that hangs out in the fun and games section.
Give me a name.
Am I mirrorball, whiteflag, boesman, or slicedcheese? I have enough intelligence to think of my own name, but thought I could ask the people I would be hanging out with if they had any ideas. So please post any suitable aliases.
To help your ideas along, here’s my bio: I’m South African, I’ll be 30-ish for the next decade or two, usually win at Scrabble, studied Literature (dissertation was about faggish stuff in Shakespeare), have been in Taiwan for 10 years, have been in a relationship with a man for 7 years (which kinda makes me gay 'cos we are both guys), love true Blood, love Heather Nova, smoke and drink more than should be respected, work at a varsity, fear for the sanity of my religious friends (I’m militantly atheist - but still fond of and friendly to believers). My favorite movies are The Hours, Magnolia, and Dangerous Liaisons.
Bio doesn’t matter that much – just give me a decent name I can live with for twenty or so years. No need for shyness. I’ll just ignore anything uncalled for or uncharacteristic of me.
Any ideas for a name?
