    Good evening!
    In short - What does your nick mean? Why did you choose it? Do you regret it or are you still satisfied with it?

    23am is an album by the artist Robert Miles. I did listen very much to his music when I was young(er), but that genre is not my primary one any longer.
    I still have the albums 23am and Dreamland in my collection though, and I listen to them sometimes. My favourite song is Children.

    So what's you story?

    x....x because I am straight edge.

    I still listen to that music but perhaps less nowadays but I don't regret it as it changed my life so so much for the better. It is even inscribed on my wrists.

    It's my first and middle initial and last name :)

    I got the idea from a friend who had the screenname "MCBaker00" on AOL. People always read it as "McBaker" and asked if she worked at McDonald's.

    Maybe because people read your entire nick phonetically.

    Mine is my college e-mail address, which was generated automatically from my name (first six letters of last + first initial + middle initial). It just happened to make "killmoms." I found this hilarious, it became a real life nickname, so I adopted it on the Intarneets.
