Our kind and tolerant admins have recently allowed me to change my username from my FFN nom de plume, TheHighestPie, to my LJ handle, sophiedegrouchy.
Sophie de Grouchy (NOT pronounced in the manner of Oscar the Grouch!), Marquise de Condorcet, was Condorcet's wife and an awesome intellect, individual, proto-feminist, and political figure in her own right. Spend a couple minutes looking her up; it will be well worth your time.
My primary motivation for the change on this board is that I had become unreasonably tired of the old name, which was a (thankfully now irrelevant!) Bush joke from circa 8th grade. I suspect that one of the reasons I was avoiding Abaissé over the past year was that I was cringing every time I saw my own name. Silly, but probably true. Thus, the change is accompanied with a resolution to actually, y'know, post around here more frequently. I also figured that this would make it easier for interested parties to find my LJ, where most of my (limited) fandom activity has been lately.
Hopefully this won't be the cause of too much confusion. Thanks all for your patience.
Oh, and I'll still happily answer to Pie.
