The enamel chick

December 8, 2009

So apparently the default for WordPress is to moderate comments from people you haven’t approved before. Well, that’s turned off for now. Anyway, I’ve already gotten a request to explain the blog’s name, “A Chicken Helmet,” which I probably should have done in the first place. Several years ago, I plugged my name into an anagram generator, and it came up with quite a few interesting ones. My favorite, “the elk mechanic,” got turned into usernames, email addresses, etc. and has pretty much become my online identity. There were also quite a few related to chickens (the lame chicken, the chicken meal, the male chicken), and I’m not sure what exactly that says about me. But one of them was “a chicken helmet,” which struck me as an excellent name for a blog. Or a name for a blog, at least.

    The anagram generator made so many brilliant anagrams of
    MICHAEL KETCHEN
    like THE ELK MECHANIC and A CHICKEN HELMET.

    Unfortunately, nothing useable came up for
    JONATHAN TAD KETCHEN
    but I figured out
    JOHANNA HACKETT DENT
    on my own. She’s my alter-ego on facebook’s “Sorority Life.”

    I’ll also use
    JOHANNA HACKETT DENT
    whenever I need to use a female pen name.
