This is a user name I used on another website, and didn't feel like thinking of a new one when I registered here 4 1/2 years ago.  It has no meaning, it represents nothing, and isn't particularly clever, since I later discovered there's a Churchy LaFemme here.....which I didn't know at the time, or else I would have thought of something else.

I was called 'Spidey' all through middle and high school because a (really huge) spider crawled onto me and I had a full, serious, completely humiliating panic attack in front of everyone at a fifth-grade school assembly.

Then, in college, I joined the campus radio station and our programming director was also a big Steely Dan enthusiast. Just enough kids from my old hometown (four,) had come to the same school, and one of them called me Spidey a couple of times in our director's hearing. He assumed (not illogically,) that it was short for 'SpiderQueenDemon' and started marking my schedules 'SQD' or 'Spidey' (everyone went by nicknames there,) and I just sort of went with it because it sounded cooler than I had ever been.

It did even make a vague sort of sense, if you interpreted the song 'Two Against Nature' to be about a pair of dorm RAs dealing with wacky hijinks at something of a party school, though I never did throw a wicker wing chair across the lobby. And I stopped minding being called 'Spidey' provided it was assumed to be short for something cooler, which is good because I don't expect to ever live that one down. The one teacher mistook the panic attack for a seizure and jabbed my butt with an EpiPen and...yeah, definitely in my top five worst memories.

So basically picking that user name was me trying to be the coolest possible version of myself and make peace with the awkward little kid I had been. And it sort of works.

Mr. Murder: Tick Tock - Okay, this one would have been awesome.


Appropriate, since that was an awesome book.

Mine is German for "devil monkey"...which I decided was a good name to use online back in the late '90s. Don't ask me why I thought that, 'cause I sure as hell don't remember.

I was on a date with a girl and we ordered sushi at a restaurant that no longer exists.  It was the worst sushi I've ever encountered and one of us said something along the lines of "well, it's sorta sushi".

A few days later I needed a user name at salon.com's tabletlalk and in a gin-fueled haze, came up with sortasushi.

that was 1998.  after a few years, people started calling me soosh.  so I went to that.

Dear lord I have no hip hop cred also no one says Hotlanta. I have three friends that are black and they would laugh their asses off at your post. I am straight up white girl.
