Thread Name: BS: Why did you choose your nickname?
Subject: RE: BS: Why did you choose your nickname?
I started out with my real name, then discovered there was another K.C. on the 'cat, so I changed to WyoWoman, but we haven't heard from that other K.C. since. So I don't know if s/he also changed to avoid confusion or what...

But I like WyoWoman -- it lets people know where I'm from (sort of -- although people from outside the U.S., and many from inside -- have no concept of where/what Wyoming actually is. No matter how many times I tell people I live in Wyoming, or I moved to Wyoming, they still ask me how I LIKE Montana. We have a bit of an identity problem here...)
