I think Noel would have enjoyed this story.
Back in the 606 days, PnC was very insistent that I stuck with the name "Lost in Kate Winslet" when I was playing with my username for comedic purposes. His odes to her beauty, charm and Englishness was captured by said username. So I stuck with it for a while.
Later, I met PompeyJunglist in real life from there (it turned out we only lived a couple of streets away). He knew a number of people with my 1st name so in his phone, my number was listed as Kate Winslet. Naturally this was a curiosity for those who saw the name Kate Winslet in his phone.
We became close friends and when I was introduced to friends of his, it was "this is Kate Winslet". Naturally Kate is more memorable than my actual first name so it has stuck. A whole group of people only know and address me as Kate. It feels very natural and comfortable.
This would never have happened if PnC wasn't so insistent in the first place so thank you Noel.
Watching wheels spin and dust settle.
