So, at a loose end this morning before I set off to work I thought I'd look up a new image for my avatar to use from one month after the wedding (when everyone else will be sick of seeing wedding photos all the time).
I thought I'd look up the word 'chig' as this has been my family nick name since forever.
I found this: Link
It seems that I am some kind of nasty space monster from a show called Space Above and Beyond. I'm not so sure that I am happy about this!
So I searched for 'chiggster' instead which - thankfully - comes up with loads of stuff that is actually mine! Flickr photos, blog memberships etc. So I felt happy with that.
Something I did see was a word 'chigger' which is something I have been called by 'mistake' when people found chiggster difficult. And I must warn you all now, if you are eating, don't go any further down this page!
These 'orrible little buggers share my name! I am HORRIFIED! I actually feel a little sick at the thought of it.
And I am starting to wonder about how I got this nickname after all. I was under the impression it was an affectionate name gifted to me by my dear old dad. Maybe (subconsciously?) he always has thought of me as a little monster!!!
I think I shall be having words!
