    Since there are a lot of new faces around I decided I would combine and revive a couple of threads that have been buried. It's a really simple way to let everyone know a bit about you and it's interesting/fun... at least it is to me... perhaps I'm just strange like that. (I do spend a bit too much time on here.)

    All you have to do is tell us:
    WHY you chose the screen name & avatar pic you did.
    WHAT (if anything) their meanings are.

    That's it. Easy. Fun. Interesting. An excuse to make shit up. Whatever. :)

    (Man, I really hope this isn't a dud of a post. :eek:)

    Why don't you include the original threads so old-timers don't have to repeat themselves?

    Don't think I answered this one so here goes: picked the name because my eyes are blue and that's one feature about myself that I do like. As for the avatar picture, I think it's one of the better pictures taken of me (even if my eyes are covered by a pair of shades).

    The pics is just a pic of me I like and the user name I was sad at the breakup of a relationship when I first join. I can't change it :) I am still sad, so it fits :)

    Name is a particular rare car that I like.

    Avatar was chosen as I am a runner and triathlete and subscribe to the concept that it's not difficult to treat one another with respect. Lots of egos in my circle of life.

    I'm a lover of music... All forms , but for some reason the blues just grabs me by the soul... So I went with "12 bar blues".. Possibly the most common form of the genre , The instantly recognizable I-IV-V chord progression is woven into half the songs we know and love. I always laugh when people say they love this music but they hate that music.,, when music is an evolution of everything that came before it. And if you can't hear the blues in every rock song you hear, then you you aren't listening.
    And my smilin doggie avatar is just cool., lol... Nuff said.

    Both of mine are pretty self explanatory ;) :D

    (I'm with ya 12BB - Music means so much to me. I'm always quoting a line or two or three from a Song. ;) I can't remember a lot of things, but I can learn & remember Lyrics to a song simple dimple. Two statements describe me & music: "I've got the Music in me" & "Music feeds my Soul". I have over 4000 songs on my iPod :cool:)

    I have mentioned this on a number of occasions.
    Mine is deeply me on many levels.
    It is in fact a Woggle or mystical snake depiction of the indigenous being of creation of Mother Earth to the Noogah people of SW Australia. No relations there except this is also the symbol of the 1000 kms wilderness walking track (I love so much) passing through that region and which I have walked several times end to end.
    Secondly it is also the Chinese symbol for the year of my birth.
    Thirdly it also depicts well my love for nature and also the meandering ways of my life.
    Finally it is also somewhat of a phallic symbol which serves to portray the significance of sexuality in my psyche :)

    Thanks...
    I tried to "move with the changing tides", but recently realized I was liked/appreciated/loved for who I was/am so you get my same old self as it should have always been. One shouldn't fix what wasn't broken, though many made me feel that way. As good ol' Popeye always said...
    "I yam what I yam".

    I just realized I posted this and then didn't include my own answer. Whoops!

    Screen name is my "alternative" one (the one I use on sites I keep separated as much as reasonable/possible from my offline life due to discretionary reasons). There's a really long-winded and complex explanation between each part, but I'll try to condense it. It's both my shirt size (2-3XL; the 2 being in binary 10) and two of my middle initials inverted XL rather than LX. To make a long story short (too late!) it's my "internet geek" name.

    Avatar... well after being a total spaz on that front for way too long (and having Rob_E yell at me) I finally settled on The Flash (Wally West) as seen in the Warner Bros' Justice League cartoon series that originally aired on Cartoon Network from 2001-2004. Those who are familiar with the character will get my choice; for those who aren't you'll have to take my word for it that it's a good match. Plus I've always had "Superhero Syndrome" (always wanting to save the World and be loved by all) and the particular picture of Flash is an expression/gesture that I make often - usually accompanied with a, "Well, actually (insert me being a know-it-all here)."

    Thanks, guys. I appreciate that - means a lot. :)

    As for the entirely true fact that I am "a fat boy who loves to pick a fight" - the only responses I could come up with that is on par was:


    I know you are, but what am I? :p
