The King is dead... long live the King!

I'm ditching Delicolor in favour of Shades as my Blogger comment name. A certain Ian took the hump a bit when I had the nerve to use my name when joining Blogpower so I revived Delicolor so that we could be told apart.

However, I get a little fed up with people asking me why it is spelt incorrectly!

Shades is a rather cool nickname, a bit like Ace, Big Man, Duke and Ironballs... but not Bonehead.

(I've revealed before that I was known as Prof. at school which I never regarded as cool!)


Footnote: I'll be staying as Delicolor on Technorati though as otherwise it will muck up all the history and ratings. It is all very odd- my authority is creeping up (now 163) but my ranking is going down (now 30,192 but better than it was. It used to be 29k+ but got worse a couple of months ago).

Well done, Ace [or should I say Shades]. I do think it is way cool.

Too much time in SL no doubt. No doubt you will keep your SL name. Why do you spell it wrong?

Shades said...

I spell it "wrong" because it is a registered trade mark and they were often corruptions of words. There was a Delicolor Corporation of America, they probably didn't twig the corruption of the words- "Delicate Colours".

I'm losing track of who's who round here.

Hey, shades, how you doing dude?

First Lord Shaft em High, now Shades of Morley.

I think I'll become Lady Persephone of the Marshes.

shades is good.

In my wildest dreams my authority will hit the 100 mark so be smug whilst you deserve too!

Shades said...

I think that 2000 Bloggers probably skewed the authority stakes somewhat.

The Shadester

Okay, Shades. Makes you sound like a Mississippi bluesman. But what's with signing yourself off as 'The Shadester'? Much too close to The Chipster for my liking.

Shades said...

Chip, I'm sometimes the Greyster at work, unless they are being polite, when they say Oi! Fat bastard!

I think "Shades" is much nicer.
