OMG, my husband will never forgive you: now I will be truly insufferable!

The Chinese (hanja) behind my Korean name means "eternally good." My wife always laughs at that for some reason.

Given that I spend so much time trying to make this place look like something other than what it really is--the home of four males, four cats, and three dogs--I think a more apt name for me these days would be Desperation Evidence Clean.

Nick Beaudrot = Diamond Upholding King
He does pooh-pooh me a lot when I talk about the cult of De Beers. I think he might have some sort of an endorsement contract with them.

low-tech cyclist = Queen Light Upholding.

Without the hyphen, we get:

low tech cyclist = Great Teacher Gladly-Seen Birth.

That's probably better. A middle-aged guy with a beard, which I am, would probably look pretty damned silly in drag.

Wow! My name is excellent for a werewolf who teaches moral philosophy.


I did think yours was a bit eerie.


Don't sell yourself short. You might be very attractive in drag. I can't imagine how you'd look worse than Giuliani.

I can't wait to hear what Sir C thinks of his name, heh heh.

If Ankush's name were the name of a breakfast cereal, I might buy it.

I think the Cogblog girls got the cooler names, although Constellation Youth King and King Ever Treasure are pretty catchy. Neil's has a kind of Maoist mystic quality to it. The Great Helmsman on acid, as it were.

As for mine, it would seem to reflect the contemplative and chaste tone of my posting, coupled with my role as quivering instrument of justice.
