Real names revealed

So was going through my unread items for the blogs I follow, and I came across Everyday Stranger's last post.

Reading away, and came to the following line:

"Angus and Helen, as you know them, are no more."

My heart took an instant dive, I was sure at that point that they had split up.

But no, to my very great surprise, Helen revealed their real names!

Alistair and Shannon

Alistair suits him down to the ground, very good English name, it suits him very well.

As for Shannon, so pleased to know her real name. Mind you, it is going to take a while for me to rewire my head to think of her as Shannon, instead of Helen. I've been reading her blog for years now, and it's fairly well ingrained that her name is Helen.

So hats off to you Shannon, thanks for sharing.

I can tell you, it feels pretty weird to keep seeing my name everywhere. I keep thinking "Ohmigod, I've been found out!" but then realized that's a little like closing the stable door after the horse has bolted.

lol, yeah I can imagine it would be, you've gone by pseudonyms for so long. I find myself going in my head "Shannon, not Helen, Shannon, not Helen", I'm sure I'll get it soon :)
