randomness a guessing game

so this doesnt have too much to do with u2 but how about we play a game of everyone tries to guess where someone's screen name comes from. Kudos to the first person who can guess where mine came from

hint: david bowie

I sing Ziggy Stardust everytime I see you've posted. Too easy!

Oh
Oooh yeah
Ah
Ziggy played guitar, jamming good with Weird and Gilly
And The spiders from Mars. He played it left hand
But made it too far
Became the special man, then we were Ziggy's band

Ziggy really sang, screwed up eyes and screwed down hairdo
Like some cat from Japan, he could lick 'em by smiling
He could leave 'em to hang
They came on so loaded man, well hung and snow white tan.

So where were the spiders while the fly tried to break our balls
Just the beer light to guide us,
So we bitched about his fans and should we crush his sweet hands?

Oh
Ooh oh

Ziggy played for time, jiving us that we were voodoo
The kids were just crass, he was the nazz
With God given ass
He took it all too far but boy could he play guitar

Making love with his ego Ziggy sucked up into his mind
Like a leper messiah
When the kids had killed the man I had to break up the band.

Oh yeah
Ooooooo
Ziggy played guitaarrrrrr

erm don't know what your AIM name means.....

I'm sure that no one knows what my log in name means...

my surname is Bampton. My brother's internet log-in name is Bammo. Hence mine is Bammo2... first name Lu, surname Bampton, ie Bammo....

I'm sure you weren't interested, but I thought I'd tell you anyway....

3. wired
4. whirred
5. whirried
6. ward
7. -ward
8. Ward
9. word
10. Worde
11. wield




Main Entry: 1weird

Function: noun
Etymology: Middle English wird, werd, from Old English wyrd; akin to Old Norse urthr fate, Old English weorthan to become -- more at WORTH

if you go with the pronunciation it SHOULD be spelled wierd, since you say the second letter... i before e except after c and all... but alas, it is weird.

I never even noticed the spelling of your name vs. the names I put in bold! I cut and pasted from a David Bowie lyrics site. I never would have even noticed that had you not mentioned it. I guess my point was I knew it was part of Ziggy Stardust.

so, I suppose my yahoo screenname, dkscully03 isn't so hard to decipher after all.

My screenname here isn't difficult, if you know your lyrics.
