Why the name "Moose"?

It was a nickname my grandfather gave me as a child. Funny, as a teenager I really hated it when he used it, but now that I'm older and need a pseudonym, I like the feel of it. Besides, it allowed me to come up with a rather juvenile pun of LJ user name.

Hey, it's my secret identity, and I'll do what I want!

Update, October 25, 2006: The original screen name I chose was "moosedroppings." After some consideration, I changed it to "thetalkingmoose" because it was less juvenile and as a tribute to a piece of Macintosh shareware that was very common in the late '80s/early '90s.
