"irvine" -- author of _trainspotting_, Irvine Welsh; i wrote my senior thesis on the novel, and am still living out the consequences
"511" -- i am 5 feet 11 inches tall.

my real name has nothing to do with my screen name. but my first name is Bono's middle name.

I chose it because back when I joined I couldn't get enough of "The Sweetest Thing" and I chose it because of that line that says "Blue eyed boy needs a brown eyed girl".

Since then I've wanted to change it but haven't because I don't want to be a Babyface again.

I was watching an episode of Buffy on TV a few years ago and it amused me how a character on the show, Cordelia, had a licence plate that read "Queen C." I remember thinking that it would be cool to get a customized licence plate like that when I'd get a car, except that it'd be a 'B' for my first initial. So, I ended up using "Queen B" as my alias at a few message boards. When I registered here I decided to change it to "Queen Bee" because I thought it was clever. I've grown to hate my screen name though.

originally salome999 - salome cos it was an obvious female name and a U2 song. 999 - cos if turned around its 666. NO- I was never an evil dancing temptress asking for the head of anyone on a silver platter.

at the start of 2000 - i changed it to U2000 (for the punny value) THEN that damn magazine (Rolling Stone) used it on the cover. I think they saw my screen name.

(I woulda used my real name.... but too many people pronounce it wrong.)

I have pretty much the same story as Beli - my usual username of Vicious was taken so I opted for an old BowieNet chat nick, since it's close to a U2 song name and I wear a lot of velvet clothing. Now I call myself Ultra at all U2 forums so as not to confuse things.

Except me - I always have to check what my forum log in is, when signing off on posts LOL! Got it wrong loads of times in the beginning. heh

Funny thing - there's a Vicious on a Muse forum who actually posts, which drives me nuts - I keep seeing his posts and having "!WTF?!? I didn't say that! Oh, hang on, who am I again?" moments!

Cheers ~Ultra
