yeah, IWB, I definitely thought you were a guy. Laura (LaraMullen) told me you were a chick and I was sooooooo suprised. punk, and especially skinhead punk, is such a hyper-masculine culture that i tend to associate it with men (although i love oi! and other skinhead music -esp. ska & reggae- and i'm a chick too, so go figure).

back to topic, um...
i picked my name b/c i'm a punk and i play tennis. yes those 2 things are a wee bit incongruous i guess, but my biggest gripe with the punk scene is how fucking conformist they all are.

I picked my username because it sounded cool and wasn't taken.

And then there was the unexpected surprise of the many derivatives like simplekitten, junglecatwhoisnotdifficult, easypussy, etc...

My screen name here is my name--totally unoriginal!

But in other forums, I'm librarydiane--because I'm studying for an MLS and want to be a librarian sometime in the not too distant future. I'm thinking of changing it here, too...

My reason is pretty simple, Mandy Marie is my first and middle names. My mother named me after the famous Barry Manilow song (it was only recently that I first heard the song).

The name I wanted was taken and I am a granny. I regretted the name immediately.
