Sometimes even the 'K' is debatable.

Mine's not too bad. Some of the letters have blurred together with time but usually you can distinguish at least a bit of an attempt at each one.

Despite my own handwriting and all my time with old documents, I still get flummoxed by some styles though. Who cares how nice your writing looks if it's fucking illegible.
I'm considering adopting an 'O' in my signature, gradually, just to fuck with people. If anyone asks, I'll just say my proper name is Kieran O'McConville.

In case you needed a name unpronounceable in any known language.

Vlad(u2), you're the resident Manic Street Preachers expert around here; can you tell me what The Girl Who Wanted To Be God is about? I like the song, really quite a lot actually, but I don't know what the fuck it's supposed to be about. Actually that applies to quite a few of their songs. Actually, pretty much all of them.

The title was taken from a Sylvia Plath poem, but I was never sure what it exactly meant. That's all I know. It might be one of the very few Manics tracks without a noticeable meaning, but I would imagine the chorus (assuming Nicky wrote it) might have something to do with Nicky's own disgust at being a man (see Born A Girl off This Is My Truth).

This interview is pretty comprehensive but there's nothing on the song's content here.

I have (quietly) wished for a change to my screen name for years.

Ok, so there's a connection, that's sort of what I was getting at. I mean, he's obviously riffing off of something with the Sylvia Plath reference.

As I've said before, I'd happily transfer my post count to my more commonly used 'Zedbetty' identity, but it's too late to start over now.

I'm not going back to zero.

What would you actually change to, Vlad?

I seem to remember an unofficial policy that people could make changes where it was still obvious who they were, e.g. BonoManiac becoming BoMac, BonoVoxSupastar becoming BVS, etc. I recall Sicy's screen name used to be something longer too, but I think it changed either before my time or not long after I became a regular here.

That unofficial policy might date back to the Elvis days for all I know. In any case the change has to be obvious as you say (BVS took the 'KFC' route, which is, frankly, appropriate for what is surely a franchised posting outfit staffed by minimum wage workers in Bangladesh).
