Can we talk about your old AIM names? No matter what you choose as your instant messenger moniker (on AIM, Yahoo, MSN, Meebo, whatever), unless it’s your gubment name, it will be obsolete and ridiculously embarrassing after about, oh, 6 months to a year. Think about it. What names have you used to identify yourself in the webosphere? I’ll share some of my tragic creations:
- Smoove88 (my very first when all I used was AOL… DIAL UP!)
- TrulyCaramel (came up with this freshman year in college. My girls and I took the names off of our bottles of foundation. The name of my shade was True Caramel)
- Soulsistaa641 (I was toying with the idea of jumping of the Boho cliff. 641 was my dorm number that year)
- FlygirlOnTheWall (don’t ask, I thought it was clever)
… and some others that are still active and I use interchangeably.
