Along the same lines as avatars, I have been curious for quite some time how some of you derived at your login name. Please explain.

Sarabande, you didn't explain your login name, or did you do so somewhere else?

I had found a C. Bechstein very much to my liking (as opposed to the other very different piano by the same last name) so I chose it for a login, even though I own an Estonia.

I play the piano. Jerome is a nickname.

(most of my friends call me Sam, but one of my best friends in middle/high school used to call me Jerome)

I am a member of a trivia group. At first, my name was Fruitcake~twinkle. Two nicknames I had from bosses/friends put together. Then, after Christmas in 2002, Fruitcake got replaced by Shamrock in honor of St. Patricks Day. Shamrock~twinkle was eventually shortened to Shammy.
Thats my story and I'm stickin to it!

Even though I don't post here much at all, I feel I owe Sarabande something.

Our first piano (in my married life) was a Kincaid, bought on the advice of my choir director because it sounded the best at our price point of $650 (thems 1998 dollars). After buying the piano I found PW when I was trying to find out more about the piano. Imagine my chagrin at finding the quote, supposedly out of Larry Fine's book, that Kincaid was "possibly the worst piano ever made" or some such thing.

Anyway, we sold that piano and after a year of searching just bought a 17+ year old Kawai 601-T.

In my childhood, we had a very large pianobench, and in it was a ton of old sheet music.Among them was a song from the cabaret theater "Chat Noir" in Oslo, and on the front was a funny drawing of a big, black cat. It fascinated me as a child, and I was equally fascinated when I, as a very young man, paid my first visit to "Chat Noir" to see the annual revue. So my log-in name is just a fond memory of a time gone by.

"Octavia" is a reference to the largest interval I can play with my small hands. My avatar is a cropped portion of the Vermeer painting "Young Girl Seated at a Virginal". I was unable to find an image of the painting online that I could turn into avatar-size to include the virginal, but it's there in spirit.

This is a pretty cool part of the forums! I've never posted here before.

No explaination here... I haven't picked a picture for an avatar yet.

Octavia - I like your avatar. I've seen that picture for real before.

Sarabande - Which era? The happy early version or the stoic later version?

It's my name. Otherwise, I would get too confused. I have met some of my online buddies in real life. It's tough when you've know them for several years as something other than their actual name. It's hard to call them anything different!

Sorry my music history knowledge on the two must have faded out of memory or I never learned it. I first studied and listened to Bach's English Suites in a Piano Lit. course and fell in love with the work. There is not a single piece in the work that I dislike. So which era would that be considered? Must be the stoic version. Suite III is my favorite work. Anyone have a recording of it or parts of it posted on PW? John C. -appreciate your musical knowledge.

PS - I wanted a name that sounded "nice" as a login name I had on another piano forum I felt made me sound like I was "snobbish" or mean-spirited which I'm generally not.

This is fun.

I often wonder where others get their secret names.

Well, I guess my name is not really much of a secret.

I hybridize daylilies and grow over 1000 cultivars. Am I obsessed? LOL! Not in the daylily world...

To my neighbors I am known as the Lily Lady!

;-)

You think pianos are expensive? How about $200 for a plant? LOL!

Frycek was Frederyk Chopin's Polish nickname. The avatar is from a sketch of him at 26 by his sometime fiancee, Maria. (She dumped him.)

This is a copy of PJ's post on WTF when Muffin asked the same question.


"In Polish, the y is a long, slightly back in the throat 'e'. If there is no mark over the 'c', the 'c' is pronounced 'ts'. There is a Polish name "Fryc" which is pronounced like the German name "Fritz".
"Frycek" should be pronounced FREE-tsek."

Chopin referred to himself and signed his boyhood letters both Frycek and Fryc.

From Scientific American 1/17/2006:

"according to a group of researchers who compiled data on [Copper's] extraction, use, recycling and discard to estimate whether there is enough copper available to make a developed standard of living available to all the world's people. The short answer is: no. "

"In fact, residents of Canada, Mexico and the U.S. required an average of 170 kilograms of copper per person. Multiply that by overall population estimates of 10 billion people by 2100 and the world will require 1.7 billion metric tons of copper by that date--more than even the most generous estimate of available resources. "

So there's not enough Copper in the whole world, mined or unmined, for everyone to have a developed standard of living.


This has little to do with how I chose my name, but I thought it was interesting.

I chose Copper because it was the name of a place near where I once lived.

My login name comes from the word nunatak. When you have a mountain with snow, but there's no snow on the top, this top-with-no-snow is called a nunatak (at least in Dutch). The plural is nunataks, which sounds the same as nunatax. So it's got nothing to do with a traumatic childhood experience with an aggressive nun smile

I thought a nunatak was when you were assailed by a bunch of ladies in habits laugh
Performingyak stems from high school when I made up a little cartoon character called Sven - he was a yak. Eventually I drew Sven doing other things, like riding a bicycle and such. Now he is more of an impersonator with characters like Svenghis Khan, Sven and Stimpy etc.
The picture is because I am too lazy to make up my own and it seemed fitting to the name.... kinda.

I didn't give my forum name much thought. As I was registering, I quickly came up with the name. Actually, I realy also like Beethoven. In fact, I might prefer Beethoven over Mozart. Beethoven has such a wide variety of music styles!

Currently, I really like the CD: Beethoven "Kreutzer" "Spring" Violin Sonatas - Perlman and Ashkenazy. Absolutely beautiful listening!

And, I recently purchased Beethoven Piano Sonatas Klaviersonaten Op. 53 "Walstein" with Alfred Brendel.

Please give me your opinion of Alfred Brendel as a pianist?

Thank you, ILM

Well, I have played since I was nine, and now I work a lot with my son. When I signed up I tried to get PianoDad, but that was already taken by someone (who no longer seems to post). Hence Piano*Dad. That's actually better because it separates the two parts of my relationship with music.

JosephS. is my name: Joseph Sanchez.

I usually don't use that for internet screen names.

There's Iaelean, which is my AIM name and most of my other message board names. It means nothing and was an act on impulse thing. It came about by putting lots of vowels together.

Ravelez is my newer SN and I use it more so than my other names. It's just a play with Ravel's name.

Some guy at work used to page me over the loud speaker. I go by Joe to everyone, but he always paged me as joseph. However the way he pronounced it it sounds like Josuff and we found it funny. His extention was 247. SO he'd page..."Josuff 247 Josuff 247"

Well, mine is also just my name and surname - really boring. I didn't really think of a nickname when I signed up, just automatically typed in my name. But I'm glad, coz I get confused pretty easily.

I chose the Mona Lisa, coz I'm almost always smiling - not like her, but actually showing my teath. And I couldn't really relate to the other avators available.

In my signature is one of my nicknames - It's actually pronounced "lal-ly".

Interesting posts so far!

Mine is all-too-obvious. When I first began thinking about selling my Grotrian, I created an e-mail account specifically for that. Obviously, I was going for clarity, not imagination! When I began posting here, I didn't expect to be around much, since I'm not expert and serious like most of you (although I liked the chatty forum that was eliminated) ... so I just kept the same handle. Handy if someone is looking for a Grotrian. I don't like it particularly, but I'm too lazy to change it.

Lagin, go up to the top of this page, just to the right of "Piano Forum" you'll see "my profile", click on that, next click on "edit profile," on the next pages scroll down until you see "Profile Fields." About 2/3's of the way down you'll see something like "select a new avatar image." That will take you to the avatar selections. There are several pages, see "next" at bottom. If you see one you like click on it, and then on "select this avatar" to the left of the page.


Slow down and do it right.

I used to use this name when login on in online games and other forums.

Good question... why did I choose this name?

Well, probably because I like fun and lol in English stands for "laughing out loud" and in Dutch the word itself already means "fun".

The "_nl" is obvious, I come from The Netherlands, abbreviated NL.

I called myself swingal as swing style jazz incapsulates my general jazz style most. My previous login name was alanjazz but the website suddenly stopped accepting it after quite a long time so had to re-register.

PW is the first and only internet forum I belong to, so when I went to register and it asked me for a login name, it didn't even occur to me to use anything other than my name. (My husband often accuses me of being way too literal, and he is right about that.)

My avatar I chose because my kids are the most important part of my life, so I liked an image that expressed who I was outside of piano. Plus, if you squint a bit, I vaguely resemble the woman in the picture.

Monica, you may laugh at this - I actually thought your avatar was an actual photo of yourself... until I saw someone else with the same one (then I was thinking 'huh?!')!

I also chose my name for my username - it was the first thing which popped into my head! Am looking around and seeing all these other, cool names and am thinking on choosing something else myself. Maybe I could put up a shortlist and get people to vote for their favourite for me. Not sure yet...

I was driving thru Texas with a friend of mine and he asked me to stop by his grandfathers place. It was a large ranch and had a slew (slew as in many) sheep. The were run thru this apparatus with a large pool at the end that was filled with a substance to detox them. I always thought that the name would be well remembered.

me............me........am........c........cr....cra.....cra.....crazy!!!!! me like psycho, me like piano, me a man!!!

I am pretty much out there. I do not like blending in and am attracted to weird people. I always go against the majority and seek to be myself in music, religion, personality, and life in general.

I am always acting weird and saying crazy stuff. People always say I am strange and crazy because of my views on life. People do tend to miss me when I am not around though because I can make any situation a good one and I am always joking and cutting up.

I was recently given the opportunity to go to another department at work for a week so I took it. I came across a guy and asked him if he had ever met a crazy person. He said no and then I told him that I was. You should of seen the look on his face. We have gotten to know each other and debated politics, ethics, and government.

I am crazy but not in a real way. Just crazy about having fun. Most people say I act the way I do because of the music. I am obsessed with it. People think musicians are a little weird.

Do you think this is true about musicians or is this due to a few nut cases like me.

It comes from the ancient game of go where it is a strategic concept. Here is a partial explaination:

"One of the most common amateur mistakes is getting locked into the local fight and continuing to play there when there are larger plays elsewhere."

tenuki means 'to play elsewhere'.

I like the word 'Sonata', I like its writing, pronunciation and its meaning. I try to use this name all the time, but sometimes it's been taken, I also use it as my hotmail 'MSN'name, anyway, I like the name in any languages smile

I don't think I explained my avatar. I am always eating chicken. Today I had a huge chicken club pizza.

I like chicken the way bubba gump liked shrimp. You can eat chicken a hundred different ways!!! People at work call me the "chicken man" everytime they see me eating chicken.

I chose Phantom because I am a huge fan of the Phantom of the Opera and Andrew Loyde Webber. Great Movie, and for those of you who already read some of my former posts know that I love Emmy Rossum who stared as Christine in the movie.

Well my parents were very farsighted and knew this child of theirs would someday work with computers (born in 1957! wink ) and also could foretell the future that a company named Microsoft would develop an operating system named 'NT'. Hence they named me Nelson T and when I became engrossed in computers (especially the Windows systems) I gave myself the nickname of NTman. shocked Somewhere on some system Ntman must have been taken so I took Ntman2. That's the long and short and stupid of it. :rolleyes:

Oh no, I have to explain it again.

I drive a Torch Red 2002 Corvette Z06 with vanity plates ROSSO Z. I spent my younger years (1952 to 1957) in Italy, a country I love. So, ROSSO (Italian for red), Z (as in Z06). Many sites no me by that handle. I even get snail mail addressed to ROSSO Z.

Ke Lang Fei is a Chinese name. I'm originally from the northeast part of the United States now living and teaching in China. Chinese given names tend to be things like "new song" or "will be a professor" or "lucky flower". One of the office people in my school tried to berate me for using too much electricity, water and gas (free in my contract) and called me "langfei" - waster, which I immediately liked. "Ke" is the beginning of my English surname which also happens to mean "guest" in Chinese. So, I have become Ke LangFei. Most Chinese really cannot understand why I would choose such a name but I like it because it fits so well.

well we all come into the world and we all have to check out the key as erol flynn said is that, I've had a heck of a lot of fun and I've enjoyed every minute of it.

I think that says it all.

I picked my nick from one of my favorite book: "The Farseer" trilogy by Robin Hobb - a must-read for every fantasy fan!

Lord Chade is the kings old assassin, but the book is really about his apprentice (Fritz). I mostly picked it because I think it sounds cool, and also because he is a character you get to like when you read the books.
I often use any of "LordChade" "Lord Chade" "Chade" "Lord_Chade" "Chade Fallstar" or "Lord Chade Fallstar" on web forums... :-)

Really strange coincidence. I really don't remember picking out a name when I signed up and somehow I was "assigned" Dame Myra. What is strange is that my first teacher many years ago was a student of Myra Hess, so I kept it.

I got my name from a derivation of the musical term, Andantino, which means moderately fast. One of my favorite pieces that I have been playing a lot lately, is Liszt's Etude XI: Harmonies du Soir which is Andantino.

At one time I wanted to junk this screen name but it's not such an easy thing to do. Then I remembered why I even came up with it.
For any who have seen the Chris Rock movie "Pootie Tang". The screen name comes from the character's name. Pootie Tang is basically a community hero on a grand scale. He is basically worshipped for anything he does and is known for being "for the kids." When Pootie records his latest song live at a radio studio, he takes the mic and makes some elaborate gestures and clearly pours his soul into the mic.....without ever uttering a word or making a single sound. After this 'debut' the producer loses his mind because he can't believe how amazing Pootie's latest creation is. The narrator describes it as "Pootie don't need no words, Pootie don't need no music!" The DJ starts throwing out all the other tapes and CDs and starts chanting like a madman, "Pootie too good! Pootie too good!"

Hope that made some sense. And apparantly Pootie needs no avatar =D

My name is Fran. Many yeras ago, when working as a nurse, this oriental physiscian cornered me and said "Flan... you shop (sharp) nurse" He was a ditrty old man type of guy. My friends and family started to call me Flan (a pronounced like short "o") as a joke. It has taken on a life of its own. When people called me Flan I would usually repond with "ya"... thus the Flanya. Then my huband started to call me Flanya. We really should retire the name as one of my childen told his friend tht he could call me Flanya eek

ADOM is a roguelike game, in case you've never heard of it.

That's easy - it's an anagram for 'likes atonal' (music, I suppose).

As to mine:
As you may know J.S. Bach walked all the way to Lübeck in northern Germany, close to the now Danish border, in 1705 to hear the Danish composer and organist Diderik Buxtehude. Buxtehude offered Bach his chair if he would marry one of his three spinsters. Bach wouldn't (for some reason) - but a forefather of mine would, 9 or 10 generations ago, and here I am today as a result of Bach's 'no thanks' ...

My name is Alan and I play jazz on a swing style.

Incidentally, this is my second user name as previously and curiously, I lost my user-name overnight, Could not log on due to a message saying the user-name was taken! I could not even use my original email address and luckily had another. So this is my second batch of posts and I was a previous member. A bit like reincarnation!

OK, I see I misunderstood. I read "first five letters" instead of your "five first words"...

Name of a composer that is?

Betty Patnude is my real name having used BPPS for my piano studio (initials)and added the zip code bpps98374, and Piano Power on other sites. It was getting hard to remember which one to use at which site even after writing them down. Absolute confusion. Why couldn't I have chosen one and stuck with it? So I used my name this time thinking I won't forget this one.

The Patnude part: I met my future husband and heard his last name indistinctly, looked it up in his college yearbook where it was spelled several different ways, and I had no idea which was correct, or how you said it with all those extra letters in the spellings. It was 6 dates later, I asked to see his drivers license. Fortunately, he laughed about it and showed me his legal name which had been anglicized from lots of letters in a French spelling.

Mine's from my favorite contemporary music group, the Moody Blues - and keys for keyboards. They use Kurzweil K2500X and PC2, I play a PC2 and K2661 (and SP88X and computer music system), also 4 & 5 string bass guitar and autoharp.

I'll eventually code up an avatar, right now I use the BMW logo for my 96 328 convertible.

A broad interest in music - classical (especially baroque era), contemporary worship music, complex rock like Rick Wakeman's playing, the Moodies, dance music (my wife and I are into Ballroom Dancing).

I serviced electronic organs, keyboards, and amps for years. Did a little playing also. Taking piano lessons along with my wife and granddaughter (playing the S&S B at the college got me a case of GAS - gear aquisition syndrome). Play with the church worship band. Getting better is slower than I expected, but worth it!

Mine is because when I joined this forum, I was still (and still am) in awe of my first piano (as in, first piano paid for by me socking away money for three years). This piano happens to have hammers in it, but no strings. It's a Roland HP201 digital.

As for the avatar.. ole Ludwig is the composer I most closely identify with, for various reasons.

I hold Bach's music in the highest possible regard, Wolfgang makes me smile no matter how bad the day has been, but when I feel like chopping people's heads off, when I feel this world is utterly and completely ruined, when I feel my anger boiling over, it is Beethoven whom I seek.

And then I find It. As angry as he was, as terrifying as his music can be, then I remember It. His 9th Symphony. And I remember that no matter how badly this world treated that man, his last big work was one of hope. The 9th is his eternal hope that this fractured, hostile world can become one. A united, peaceful world.

That's why his mug graces my avatar here. smile


o.O

A hammered piano, minus the strings. Brilliant!

I chose my name as I am a fast typest on a computer keyboard and hoping to transfer this energy to learning the piano. The avatar resembles tickling the ivories as this is the goal. I play piano for the joy and not to be a concert pianist; though I do not mind exploring classical music as a challenge.

Stringless - I agree with you wholeheartedly.
Without Beethoven my life would be missing
so many things. Overcoming obstacles, first
of all; but most of all the powerful and
thoughtful example of form and craftmanship
in his writing. One could go on forever about
him but we ALL understand it here on this
forum.

My avatar doesn't need much explanation.
However, some musicians get confused about
how to play "tenuto" correctly. Especially
when there are many tenutos in a row.
Should we still hold the note for its full
value or should we detach the notes, or
play them with a slight marcato? I guess
I'll just throw this question out to the
rest of of you....

"Tenuto", I think has a different definition depending on which period you look at. I think that baroque composers wanted us to literally hold the note for its full value, whereas in, say, the romantic period, it's more of an expressive technique, where you should really 'lean' into the particular note, so tenutos could be clues as to where the music should ebb and flow, especially with the rubato of the romantic period.

But that's just my understanding...

I started out as Steph_in_FL because when I first created my account I wasn't feeling all that creative or whimsical. Just put "I am" in front of it and its pretty self-explanatory.

I changed to "asoalin", which refers to the song A Soalin' by Peter, Paul, & Mary. Its the first song I ever learned to play on the guitar, and my mother taught it to me just by her memory, so its a special song to me. I can actually play guitar a lot better than I can play piano. I've been playing guitar a lot longer.

Cool idea for a post smile

I have used vayapues since 1998 as my nickname on just about everything. If you email vayapues@ just about any address, ie, hotmail, yahoo, gmail, it will come to me.

For many years I was the only one using it. Now there are a few others, which irritates me, but what are you going to do. wink

I served an spanish speaking mission for my church. Vayapues was a common phrase that was basically a nice way of telling us to get lost.

Cute thread!
The currawong is an Australian bird - nice song, kind of melodious but a bit wild and melancholy. Apart from the fact that I always aim to make the piano sing, there's not much connection. I certainly don't scavenge leftover cat food and mug baby birds...

And vayapues, I like your signature line. That is, once my son had explained it to me smile

Vogel refers to the baby-grand I dreamed of owning. When I retired my dream came true...I bought myself a baby-grand and so I chose that as a screen name. The 54 refers to the size...5'4" although the actual size is 160cm which converts to a little over 5'3" so I rounded up to 5'4"... the apple indicates my passion for teaching. I retired after 34 years in the classroom.

Best Regards,
Nick

Also, I'm an aviation buff and ex. pilot, so my avatar is a WW2 P-47 Thunderbolt... It rivalled the P-51 Mustang but I'll concede the P-51 to be "the greatest ever" fighter plane, even over the Spitfire (but not by much!)

"Innominato" means "Unnamed" and is the non-name of one of the most popular character of the most famous novel ever written in Italian, Alessandro Manzoni's "I Promessi Sposi".

I cannot even try to explain to you the divine beauty of Manzoni's prosa, or of the characters he has created.

The "non-named" is one of the characters dearest to me in this very dear book, and it is obviously very apt in a forum (where you choose a nickname because you want to remain, ehem, un-named....).

Jovial is a word I like.

I like to pick arbitrary logins that are pleasant to me and then just stick with them.

I think Jovial sort of describes my public demeanor as well, which makes it a pretty ok handle for me, according to me.

We Chinese back in Asia, are very well-known to include food seasonings into everything that we cook...be it a simple side dish...if one were to actually taste it, one can surely tell the number of teaspoon of salt (monosodium glutamate=MSG) added into it...

The culprit is a company by the name of Ajinomoto, which mass produces food seasoning and artificial flavouring in Asia...

My mom was one of those Chinese cook...though not so bad now...I was eating one of her vege side dishes, oozling with salt...when I was trying to come up with a name for my blog...

Hence...Less Ajinomoto...

I was asked to give a tutorial on public key cryptography as a lunchtime seminar at my company (that's the basis of the HTTPS protocol, among other things). As an opening graphic I included a picture of the old Ovaltine secret decoder ring which I used to demonstrate a basic symmetric cipher (I'm a big fan of the movie "A Christmas Story" in which Ovaltine plays an important role). After that talk, I still had a copy of the decoder ring picture stuck to my cubicle wall; it stayed there for a few years.

I had to create a login at some other site, and chose "Ovaltine" because that picture of the decoder ring was the first thing I saw when I rolled my eyes around looking for some creative inspiration.

I now use the name as a default whenever I need to create an online identity.

This is a fun thread...when I first registered, for my login name I chose Albee Bach. It's a cheesy pun on the Terminator tag line, the writer Edward Albee (Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?), and J.S. the composer. I quickly decided that the joke would get old, so I decided to have my screen name just be my name. But every time I log in, I still have to deal with the joke, and yes, it's still ridiculous and getting a little old.

Billy Shears is the name of the man who replaced Paul McCartney in the Beatles after he "died" in a car crash in 1966... hence the "66". I'm a huge Beatles fan... duh, but I don't believe the story, though it is fun to ponder

Why, Paul has done well, then. All those tunes since '66, and he gave Larry King a lively enough interview for a corpse a couple months ago...I hope I'm cranking out gems like "Blackbird" and "Maybe I'm Amazed" after I've gone feet-up.

Never heard the "Billy Shears" story before. Whatever floats people's boats, I guess.

Ongaku roughly translates as soul or essence of music or sound. It's Japanese, although I'm not, at least this lifetime. But I do cherish transcendent experiences involving sound and music, live and recorded, including Piano.

You may know already but there is a valve amplifier named the Ongaku by Audio-Note. It uses all solid silver conductors and cost £55000 in 1995. I don`t own one smirk

Oooooh, yes. There is a whole realm or world of high end audio analogous to "Grand Obsession"; searching for that certain elusive, hard to describe something that hits the spot. The Audionote Ongaku raised the bar as they say on this side of the pond.

Just for fun: There are two Audionotes, Japan and UK; the UK being the ex distributor for the other...I Heard the AudioNote Japan Ongaku at a hifi show in '93. Amidst the boom and sizzle all the adjacent exhibit rooms were showing off with, the AN room played a variety of LPs quietly. As each selection ended, Piano and Flute duet, Bill Evans, stuff like that, it was apparent that the noise leaking in from the other rooms was about as loud as the music being played, but one only noticed the music while it was playing, as if the the noise went away and only the music mattered. Pleasurable, and mind opening!

I'm enjoying Denon high end audio, the S and SA series, which has some of that elusive Ongaku, with a relatively smaller pricetag, more Yamaha than Fazioli in Piano terms...

Cheers,

H

MmmmBalf has been my online identity for a long time for all sorts of things. My nickname has been Balf since I was a kid (derived from my surname). I started out using that, but I found that it was often already taken. One day when I'd had Balf knocked back, I was trying to come up with something else, and considered MBalf, since my first name is Michael. When I went to type it the extra m's just sort of came out wink Besides, I'm yummy. laugh (Seriously, not!)

Wiki definition:
In geometry, a Platonic solid is a convex regular polyhedron. These are the three-dimensional analogs of the convex regular polygons. There are precisely five such figures. They are unique in that the faces, edges and angles are all congruent.

I'm a graphic artist who didn't want to starve, thus I'm employed as a product design engineer. I've been using this name since the beginning of time (internet time anyway). All the way back to when the most interesting thing to do online was chat on Napster and downloading an mp3 took 25 minutes over a 56k modem.

I'm thinking of changing it to something more...musical. But right now I'm misslasagna because my dear lovely old Grandpa started calling me Lasagna after I requested it for my birthday dinner smile He lives a couple of states away so he likes compiling the bits and pieces he knows of me into something coherent.

My avvie currently is Mr. Beethoven, my favorite composer, but looking through this thread I've seen three other people with the same one, mostly with more posts than me (which means they have dibs) so I'll probably end up changing it.

EDIT: Changed avvie to different Beethoven image...hopefully this will help avoid confusion. smile

Ah, not that creative, but out of a lot of the other login names, mine kinda sticks out like a sore thumb, so far...
Well, I just kinda mishmashed two words of my creation and there you go.
There's a whole story behind 'splendiferous' and 'idiotstick', but ya know...whatever.

I just thought it was kinda funny.

I'm still trying to decide what name I should use. Until then this seemed like a good one for someone who mostly lurks.

Lolium is some kind of weed/herb that grows among soils and ruins them. I was so surprised when I found out that in greek this weed is called Ira which is my real name!

My real name is Kymberly. People usually call my by the typical nicknames: Kymmy, Kymba, kymmer, Kym etc (you wouldnt believe how many variations people come up with).

But, Kymber was the nickname I was given by my former coworkers (it's not just kymberly shortend). They announced they were going to give me a nick name and about three days later there was a little slip of paper folded on my desk. When I opened it up it said "Kick a$$ Kymber" (I was doing martial arts at the time). Now whenever they see me they call me Kymber. I like it b/c it's the only nickname anyone put some thought into. smile
