It was given to me after the final concert of our tour to Salzburg in 2005. Martin and I were talking, and because we were essentially the double reed section, we like to think we are a bit more crazy than everyone else. Part way through the conversation, Martin stopped and 'knighted' me with his Bassoon. Originally I was 'Sir Bekki of Salzburg' which was amusing but I wasn't too impressed with it, so he re-knighted me (is there such a term?) and I was then 'Lady Bekki of Salzburg' which kind of stuck.
Why was I knighted? Well it was random and we loved Austria. I still love Austria. Have done ever since we crossed the border to it from Germany. I don't really know why I love it, but I do and I kind of feel at home there, even though my German is pretty bad!
Obviously my username has changed slightly, but its obvious what has changed and its pretty obvious why, so I'm not going to spell it out! If you want to know more about my tour to Salzburg, poke me and I'll try and get an entry sorted out about it. Yes yes, I know I still need to do the one about the tour to Barcelona from this year, but Austria 05 was my first tour and will always remain special to me.
