Let's talk about usernames

Postby SheWolf » Sun Jul 05, 2009 1:32 pm

I thought it might be interesting for us to share the nature and origins of our usernames. I imagine mine is fairly obvious to FOTC fans. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2spK1MBOvOk

Mine is inspired by the series as well, the whole 'is it a biscuit?' thing :)

Also I'm crackers, so it fits so well :lol:

(It just struck me that had 'biscuit' been taken I could have gone with 'ginger nut', it would have suited my original avatar (Murray) even better :lol: )

That scene always cracks me up.

A few members might have figured mine out already but vmh = my initials.

Postby nonchalant obsession » Sun Jul 05, 2009 2:55 pm

A sarcastic oxymoron, intended to both remind myself of April 29th (like I could ever forget), and nudge myself back to normalcy. (at least non-forum)

April 29th: The concert, the meet & greet, my "moment" with Mr. McKenzie and Mr. Clement, my brief conversation with Bret in which I complimented him on singing what that night I called "the nonchalant song" which I now know is called "Bret's Day" (by most) or "Romantic Waltz." (according to set lists)

Bakergirl

Is well because I WAS a baker and it was a nickname a friend gave me years ago and still insists on calling me.
It is also part of my email addy. :) I keep wanting to change it but am too lazy. :|

I had just seen the Mohumbhai and Sons promos for the first time, and I dunno, mania went pretty good. Like Beatle mania but for pawn shops. :rolleyes:

vmh I thought it stood for "vivacious magnetic hottie". Thank you for setting me straight. :D

I started out in internet land as Delerium78 (my spelling was not so good back then lol...actually I'm not so good now, but spell check has made leaps and bounds since my start.). Delirium for the character in the sandman novels by Neil Gaiman that I probably shouldn't relate to as much as I do. 78 was just my birthyear. At some point I shifted to using my drawing/painting names. So for this board, I'm using this painting name, this is a deliriumtree...

It's completely made up. Well, Cailen is a proper name that I just fell in love with. Braern I just made up and smooshed the two together. I've had it for about 7 years now, in various places.

As a lover...I was seriously inexperienced.

Mine's just my middle name... boring, I know. But I've been using it for like 7 or 8 years now on a couple of boards.

Mine is also super boring: My name is Kelly and my nickname is southpaw (because I'm left-handed). I've had this username as my username on countless websites, forums and it's also my e-mail. I really should be more creative :lol:

When I was a kid, we had a bird house in our backyard that had a whole slew of robins in it. She would always say "look at the pretty robin birds"... since my name is obviously robyn and I am a girl, my screen name morphed into prettyrobyngirl. I use it some other places, but WTF is really the only board I come to.
