I was chatting with a Chinese person on social media once. And he told me about the facade of his house, where the word 'Facade' was mistakenly written. I liked it, so I use it for my nicknames.

I remember one time when I was out camping with friends, we saw this breathtaking sunset over the mountains, and the colors were just incredible.

Cool to hear how you got your nickname, Indigo is a nice word indeed! As for mine, it's a bit simpler. My nickname SPcze actually comes from the initials of my first and last name, and I added a twist to it to make it sound unique.

First camera I ever used. I found it in the linen closet. A train wrecked at one of the local crossings and I begged my mom to get me some film. I still remember how excited I was when the prints came back. This was somewhere around 1964 or 65.

I came across an old NEX-5 video that may explain my story behind my nickname

(No Bengals were harmed during the making of this video)

Back in the late 90s when I signed up for my first email address (@yahoo.com, those where the days) I was reading one of Douglas Adams' Dirk Gently novels, there's a band called "Pugilism and the 3rd autistic cuckoo" in one of them. The novel was on my desk I guess and when coming up with an alias that band name came to mind...

I was reading the book in German and didn't realize I've spelled "cuckoo" wrong for ages. I've dropped the "autistic" from the username some time ago, and since it's spelled wrong "cucoo" is available at most places so I've stuck with it

I have a pretty interesting nickname - a combination of the words crock and soul. And so it is formed.

Bear because of my size, been called bear since I was a kid.
Air because of my obsession with anything flying and in the biker world there are a lot of people nicknamed Bear for some reason!

Cactus because I screwed up on the registration to this forum and cactus was part of what I used for the password, oops!

As I do not know how to change it back to the much simpler Bearair looks like I will be the mouthful BearairCactus on this forum for ever

Of course everyone is welcome to call me Roger or Rog which is my name, or as we say in Cornwall, "call me anything you like, just don't call me late for dinner!"
