Lol, touche! I can see that I will need to be on my A game around here I just might start calling myself the Great White Nerd.... although the term intellectual badass (totally robbed from a facebook page) is much more appealing!

Mine comes from the Terry Pratchett book Feet of Clay. It's the name of the toy pig Sergeant Colon had as a child.

I've used it as my nom de clavier for several years now (although I have done some online roleplaying using the name I hesitate to call Mr. Dreadful my 'online persona' as something I've come to realise over the years is that there is only one me, whether on the internet or in real life what you see is what you get. The dark and the light, the good and the bad are all Mr. D and Mr. D alone).

well, yes, 'intellectual badass' would be hard to beat. the shark thing isn't bad at all, but a little intimidating, all those teeth. some folks like being eaten alive. me? it depends on who's doing the eating. *small sly smile*

Mr. Dreadful, I must admit that I chuckled when I saw that your edit reason was "extra paragraph of stuff." I do that all the time.... type a bunch then re-read and remove!

Catbird: I like to tap into my intimidating side on occasion! I like to know that I have it available for the folks that like to be eaten alive

Well, that was adding rather than removing! I have a habit of typing half a message, getting distracted by something else then forgetting-

Oh, I do that as well sometimes... I'm not terribly good at the internets.

I'm trying to lose weight and so far it's working - learning to like this body I'm in again - can't go to 'Body Parts R Us' for an upgrade lol - and - when I was looking for a name mine just jumped out at me.

I chose BettyBaker for a Livejournal account a few years ago; I had just been given a bread machine, and I was letting the machine bake bread for me every day. I thought that the monicker BettyBaker was cute and alliterative and ordinary and a little out of style, so I yoinked the name for my own use and have been using ever since!
