    I knew a grrlie who's name - believe it or not - was Keith!
She has it on her birth certificate. Her parents were drunk or high
she says.
    But she likes just going by just _K2_*. She even dropped use of her
last name - which started with "K"
(I can totally understand why she dropped the familyname, too:
    with parents like hers,
who would want anything from 'em?).

* remember the bit about "masculine breasts" earlier in the list postings?

     Language[s] change[s]: vowels shift, phonologies crash-&-burn, grammars
leak, morpho-syntactics implode, lexico-semantics mutate, lexicons explode,
orthographies reform, typographies blip-&-beep, slang flashes, stylistics
warp... linguistic (R)evolutions mark each-&-every quantum leap... languages are
