    Some of the names are fascinating, some funny, some cryptic, or whatever. Can you tell the story behind how you picked your name?

    I am "Sporty_G"....I got this nickname from a guy on my softball team in the early 90's...he used it once in public with the rest of the team there in a game and then at the bars afterward and it stuck. I have used it ever since...."thank you" for the name Carleton where ever you are now.

    fuck, i thought of starting this thread early on. damn! lol

    "ZIMATAR" is an am radio show in the philippines from the late '70s to early '80s... it was on every 8pm... just before i go to sleep... i gave more attention to my very first transistor radio (i don't recall if it were fisher price or sesame street design) than television as it was given to me as a birthday gift when i turned 4 years old... every 8pm on school nights, the announcer would go:
    ZIIIIIMMMMMMMAAAAAAAATTTTTTTTTAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRR!!!!!
    (think the way He-Man would yell "By the power of Grayskull!")icon_mad.gif

    ZIMATAR is a Filipino action hero battling supernatural evil forces that endanger mankind. too bad it was not adapted as a tv show nor a movieicon_sad.gif

    RBY71 is just representational of the Red Blue Yellow primary colors that are also interchangeable with letters in my name with the year I was born tagged on at the end.

    I chose to go with this one because on other sites I've always had to have kinda silly names like KillerGardenGome or RabidMonchichi and I wanted to have NowShowMeOnTheDollyWhereTheBadManTouchedYou as one, but the site in question did not allow that many characters in the name box.

    I chose to go with a boring name on RJ because when I signed up it seemed like a very very serious site and I was unsure that any silliness would be appropriate, let alone tolerated. Thank you all for validating that assumptionicon_wink.gif

    ASH is my initials, and 557 is just a nice number.

    My handle is what the Eddie Murphy character Buckwheat used to say when singing 'Lookin for love in all the wrong places' on an old Saturday night skit.

    I think he said wookinpanub when trying to say 'lookin for love' but I like nookinpunub better.


    'Lookin for love in all the wrong places' was used in theUrban Cowboy movie with John Travolta
    .
    Nookinpunub

    Alright so everyone always asks why I chose such a dark name so here's the explanation:

    Life sometimes forces us to make hard choices - it's inevitable. In the past I did something to help a certain someone that to them probably felt like betrayl. That pain is my own burden to bare, because even if I meant the best and believed it was the right thing to do, I still managed to cause harm. In the future it will be the same, but at least I can live with a clear conscience and with no regrets, and thus it is my life, my choices, that result in my pain, but I wouldn't have it any other way.

    freakyninjamonkey...heh, well this name came about a few years ago. Was trying to make a name for my AIM account but everything I tried to use had already been takes (DAMN PEOPLE GETTING TO THE NAMES FIRST). After some thought, and help from the shirt I was wearing (the shirt read "No, it's not raining. That's actually my ninja monkey pelting you with poo!" ) I tried ninjamonkey...and that was a miss icon_cry.gif . Well my friend said that one of my other names I tried was knida freaky...and thus freakyninjamonkey was born. I can also say with a 99.5% certainty that when I use this name, NOONE already has it picked lol. icon_wink.gif

    I've never seen Zimatar either, zim. icon_razz.gif

    Sedative14

    14 - my favorite number, since I was born January 14.

    Sedative - hmm... one of the four handles I usually use.

    One is my 'straight' handle (I'm still closeted and thus never use it), it has a much better background story. Heh. Coz I based it off a poem I wrote back in high school.

    The other three, including Sedative, are used simply because I like the sound and I'm not a hundred percent sane anyway. If the ones I've chosen are unavailable then I'll pick between the three. In this case Sedative14.

    Deep Ellum is an arts, entertainment and shopping district just northeast of downtown Dallas, close to my home. I've seen the area described as Bohemian, a bit rough around the edges. You won't find Brooks Brothers, Banana Republic or Starbucks in Deep Ellum. But you're in the right neighborhood if you're looking for a tattoo parlor or loud club with live music. From what I understand, "Ellum" comes from the southern drawl two-syllable pronunciation of the word, Elm, the main street in the neighborhood.

    haha oh me and my screennames...
    this one is self explanatory...it could mean a lot..
    first the 23 is how old I am...well should have thought of that before making..cuz I guess I will always be 23? lol

    but the notsoomuch is a name that coincides with my old(still use) Aim mileniumdoughboy..
    add the notsoomuch-mileniumdoughboy
    in high school nick named pimp daddy doughboy for all the girls I was friends with, then with y2k happening around then...made mileniumdoughboy, but since I am no longer a doughboy..I am notsoomuch

    another screenname though pointless to share is dedicated to my ex.. overyoulikethat its on the same site he used daily to get hookups..so whenever I sign on he sees that...

    You know the line, "Surfs up!" used to get thrown around a lot? I hated that line, and thus, surfsdown was born. It's not deep or cryptic, but damnit it's functional!

    Tomi is my actual first name, R is the first letter of my surname and the nr 1 I added 'cause obviously TomiR was already taken (haven't found anyone using that screenname, tho). So, there it is: TomiR1. Nothing mystic about that.icon_smile.gif
