Dear 100 Hour Board,

I have a question for Cerulean. How did you decide on that moniker and does it have anything to do with The X-Files episode "Pusher" (Season 3, Episode 17) where a guy who calls himself Pusher puts a mind freak on a police officer, who is the driver of the police car in which Pusher is riding in the back seat, causing the officer to pull out in front of a cerulean blue tractor/trailer by saying, "Cerulean blue is a gentle breeze."

Dear frohike,

I'm not Cerulean but I think it's important that you know I have been binge-watching The X-Files with Pebble (who has never seen them) and I would die for 1990s David Duchovny. 

That is all. 




Dear friend,

Wow I wish I could tell you that you are right, but I pretty much just chose Cerulean because I love the color blue and cerulean is fun to say. In fact, I haven't watched X-Files at all, so I am glad that Guesthouse is available to share your love of the show. I am vaguely familiar with the reference to cerulean though because I did make sure to read the Wikipedia page on cerulean before choosing it as my 'nym.

Before I was a writer, I didn't have a consistent 'nym that I used, but I almost always signed my questions with something related to the color blue (aqua, topaz, azure, etc.). Cerulean was the one I liked the best and now here we are!
