Now Recognizable on Highways & Byways

Yes, if you see a car with California license plates that say SCOTICA, that’s me.

But no, I did not take the name from my LiveJournal — it’s actually the other way around.

I had been planning for ages to get personalized license plates as soon as I was financially solvent. Some years ago I settled on SCOTICA (Latin feminine nominative singular adjective meaning “Scottish”) because SCOTIA was already taken. I wanted something referring to Scotland and to use Latin rather than Gaelic or Scots because I didn’t want it tied to just one Scottish culture. (The SCOTICA on the plates refers to my interests, btw; it is not the name of my car.) A few months ago I paid off my credit card in full with money I had earned myself (what a thrill!!!), so I declared it time to get said plates, ordered them, and then picked them up just a little over a week ago.

Anyway, when I got a LiveJournal account a few years ago, I had to come up with something to call it. “SLK” was already taken, and I couldn’t think of anything appropriate, so I borrowed my future personalized license plate for the name. I think it’s worked out rather well.

Now all I need to do is get a custom license plate frame that says MedievalScotland.org...

Hey! You are back to LJ!

Glad to see you here. I've missed you. I see you are planning to do dishes at PPF. I was thinking maybe help in some small way, but haven't signed up for anything yet.

Ya know, most malls have engraving places that will do license plate frames...
