I agree, but don't call me Wasabi, Linda, or Lynn!

In my alter ego life (law enforcement for those that don't know), I am referred to by my surname. That's just how they do things in that world. Now that I think about it, I was called Larson in my youth as I had a friend who's name was Bill (mine as well). I guess Larson was easier then his last name. Shorter, that's for sure.

William is my proper name, but is usually only used in formal circumstances or when I am in trouble (mother or DW). Of the eligible nicknames for William, Bill is what stuck.

Am I concerned that you now know my proper, nick, and surnames? Nah. I live in Minnesota. William Larson and Bill Larson is a name readily available in the phone book; a dime for a baker's dozen. Besides, with my alter ego life, I'm fairly well armed and trained so if you show up on my doorstep, I'm not overly concerned. Maybe I'll have something on the stove or in the oven if you decide to stop by!

"BigDog" originated twofold: first it is a clothing brand that I really like. Second, I'm not quite as tall as a football lineman, but I am built very similarly, and in my youth was graced with the psudoname of Power House.

In that case, we'll NEVER call you Wasabi, Linda or Lynn.

Hey, Sush (Paul), I knew I liked you. You have the same name as our only, and wonderful son-in-law. Couldn't love our Paul more. You're in good company.

P.S. Of course, everyone knows I'm Katie. My other names are Mom, Mommy, Grandma, Momma Kate, Hottie (as Buck says ) Kate, Dr. O'Neill's daughter, and others I'm sure I'm leaving out.

Isn't "Borat" the sound one makes when they sit on a whoopee cushion?

While I agree that knowing a person's true given name would be nice ... I find it more usefull to know where they live when they ask questions.

Mine is fairly easy to figure out! At most forums I go by Barbarian57 but here I decided to use my name. I didn't want everyone asking if I am a male or female! Barbarian is also part of my email address and you wouldn't believe how many offers I get for male enhancement products and offers from "ladies" who want to make me happy! Sheesh!

Cindy is mine!!! But a few of you already know that. I first logged in as Cindy. It's not that I mind using Cindy, it just felt odd, as I've used Gossie most of my online computing life. :-) To ME, I'm Gossie. :-)
