True Names

I HAVE MY NAME BACK ON FACEBOOK!

At long last, I have jumped through the proper hoops, and Facebook now once again identifies me as Beemer, and it is such a relief I can't even tell you.

It was one of those low-grade background stressors that you get so used to that you can't tell how much it was bothering you until it's gone.

I was planning to post more about the whys and hows of all that, but I've been writing up the story of how I got my name in the first place, and it got long. So maybe later.

But since it's coming up on 24 years (!) that I've had the name, and since I've met a lot of people since then who've never heard the whole story, I thought I'd share.

(The TL;DR version: it's a nickname from college.)
