“Laura” = Tiffany
“Calvin” = Bill
“Michael” = Robert
“Marie” = Amanda
All the other “characters” names are pretty much their real names, as far as I can remember (I was once going to give even the PETS their own nom-de-nets, then I was all, “Jaysus, fucker, get a life.”). I’ll correct ’em as I go along, how’s that? Some things are still going to remain as they were – referring to my primary employer as “AcronymCo” being one of them. I won’t be publishing my address and phone number, either. Some bloggers I know actually do that, and I wonder how much harassment they get as a result.
This is going to take some getting used to. Whenever I talk about Bill my fingers automatically want to hit Shift-C. Anyway. If you happen to see any areas of the site that need names updated (the “About” page is next on my list) let me know!
I’m still going to write as “Laura Charon” over at Beyond Megapixels and UpTake – at least until I talk to my editors about whether or not they want me to change over there, since I’m removing the veil of anonymity.
So! Uh, yeah. Anticlimactic much? Yet, I feel kind of nervous. God knows why. This is bound to make things easier on me.
