Hah, how topical! I just changed my name to this yesterday. I think since joining the site, I have had... Three names, including this one? Anyway, my old diary name was just the function of my diary: weird notes. Since I decided to change the purpose of this thing, I have also decided to change the name.
"Sal" like the avatar picture is a fishapod and they are... not salamanders at all, but close enough and I like the name. "Fakename" like I wanted my name on the diary to be an obviously fake name. I feel it is easier to call someone by a fake name than something poetic.
"Did you see what Sal wrote the other day?" is much easier than, "Did you see what 'Working On It' said the other day?"
