I just thought of something--My screen name at Stars is "Donegal", which is a tiny town on Ireland's west coast, and a town that I spent a fair amount of time in a few years back. I'm no phonetician, but if you were to sound it out, it would look something like this: "Don-eh-gahl". When I created the account, I tried to think of a name that meant something to me, was without numbers and fairly original. Well, I was impatient and came up with the above. That's all well and good, until I looked at it today.
That's the lamest thing I've ever read. Now I've been lumped in with all the "JohnnyWad69's" and "2big4U's" of the online poker world. Great. And the sad thing is, I didn't even realize it until a coworker pointed it out to me. It was always Donegal. Donegal, damn it. What was I thinking? I might as well have used SlappyMcTickleNuts. They're equally stupid.
More to post later, I'm sure.
