The last sentence in LD's post reminded me of something. When I was a child in rural Wisconsin, it seems like all the adults around me had nicknames. I literally never knew most of their actual names. But here's the thing in retrospect their nicknames seem extraordinarily strange, even though they didn't appear that way at the time. One guy was always called Mildew. I really never thought twice about it. Another was called Sparrow and another was called Toad. Somehow these weren't meant as insulting at all.
When my daughter was growing up I gave most of her friends nicknames: Larpet, Wyvern, Bob, Pinto, Smooches, Cleo, Aspen, Spinner, to name a few. Good times.

Timing-wise, mornings before lunch are thought to be optimal. But I'm kind of stuck on the day. Obviously my ability to interview and whatnot will carry the most weight at the end of the day (pun intended), but I'd like to optimize my odds wherever possible.
