mellicious: pink manicure (WoW - rampage)
We have gone ahead & moved our pair of WoW characters from one server to another (that is, from Proudmoore to Aggramar, for the three of you who care!), and I'm pretty sure I'm going to have to rename my character tonight when we get ready to play. I used "Mellificent" for the first one I made, the paladin, but I'm pretty sure "Mellicious" was taken on that server, and that's the name of the one that's moving. I'm trying to decide if I want to stick with the puns on Mel or do something else entirely.

Normally puns are not at all my thing, so it's sort of funny that I ended up using this kind of name all over the internets, as it were. A bit of history for people that haven't known me forever: "Mel" is, as most of you know, a nickname in the first place, and it's not really all THAT old, either - it dates back to my AOLchat days in 2000 or 2001. It started out as a silly joke to do with somebody else's name (which I won't even attempt to explain), and then people started calling me that and I sorta liked it, so I kept using it. And nowadays it's the only name that most people online know me by, so it's a good thing I like it, I guess! (I used my real name on Facebook because that seemed to be the thing that everybody does over there, and I kind of hate it. But if part of the point is to connect up with people from your past, then it's useless if you don't do that.)

The pun business started in TUS-chat - at least, I'm pretty sure Mellificent and Mellicious came from there. And I thought they were funny, so I started using them as log-ins various places - one or the other depending on which one was available. But I'm not the only person who uses them, and Aggramar is a pretty old server, as WoW servers go, evidently, so a lot of stuff is taken.

Anybody got any brilliant ideas?
