I actually like my name cuz it throws people off a little... I'm actually a very light-hearted and fun loving person with a goofy and slightly overactive sense of humor.

But I think you and I may have had this discussion before, RR?

Yeah, that's pretty common.

but that was too long

I had typed in myusernamehere as a place holder until I could come up with something shorter. Then I got distracted by something shiny and hit submit.
I dunno what drugs you're on, but I wouldn't mind some of them.


My own user name, rather boringly, is because I have a career background in finance & accounting and once made $30 million in a single Forex trade (*).


(* the last bit is technically a complete lie)

i picked my name on impulse cos i saw a thread i wanted to reply to or something like that. i suppose the "gal" part could show im from the south, except i, erm, dont like the south. plus im from atlanta which isnt the south anyway. not to say i hate everything about the south. just the racist redneck bible-belt part. but im getting off track.

anyway i dont even particularly like the song vertigo, but i thought it sounded catchy on the spur of the moment. i would make up a name thats got more to do with a song i like or something about me in general, but its too late to change my name since im so wellknown and loved here, etc.

lol

I'm so glad you explained that...it's been buggin me for ages...still can't pronounce it but...


As for me...

It's also a thought that changed the world... I love the song...pretty obvious really... but grace and gracie were already gone so I picked gr@cie

...it's always such a stressful situation...finding a username.

I think the only reason I picked this name is because it was one of the few names in U2's songs, and prior to interference I was in a couple U2 chat rooms where wanderer and van diemen were taken, so I cheated and cut off the van.

umm, ok since I find myself here then I'll explain my username. if I was born female my username would be "dorothy" and I'd still not be a PLEBAn.
