When I graduated from nursing school, my first job was working the midnight shift on an oncology unit. "Ha! Ha!," I said, "I will pay my dues on the night shift for a couple of years, and then I'll have a day job just like normal humans!"

Okay, that was a LOT of years ago. I paid my dues, changed specialty (Labor & Delivery), and now, at long last...I'm still working midnights. (sigh) When I joined Gameboomers, I had finally come to the realization that I will ALWAYS be a "Daysleeper". At least my dysfunctional sleep pattern brought me a cool screen name!

Daysleeper laugh

P.S. For those who like R.E.M., "Daysleeper" is also a pretty neat song. smile

I didn't see these posts the first time around. Pretty interesting. I don't guess I need to explain anything here, do I? laugh

Hi Becky smile

Thats not surprising. She jumped out to me but she's only a minor character.

Salar appears only in Myst:Book of Atrus beginning around page 200.

Here's the Salar summary:

Salar scrubs laundry by a lake & Atrus sees her. She follows Atrus around the island watching him get the clothes she washed all dirty thumbsup

Not very exciting, although it's not my "real" name...I use it mostly online, but it's a nickname I got in college. It just sort of evolved; as college nicknames tend to do!

This is a very fun thread! smile

Hmmmm... 'ladyyve'..... Why? A lot of reasons! 'LadyWulf' always seemed to be taken already and I'm too lazy to try to remember a number on the end of any name, so wanting to use my own name, but at the same time, being distinctive, I chose 'Lady Y've'. A lot of my friends shortened Yvonne to Y've and call me that anyway.... it stuck. I've always been kind of wild and daring growing up. No, I didn't dance naked on any table tops, but I think that over the years I've matured and am now a Lady.

I love wolves and sea otters... and all things Egyptian! I felt that the most recognizable symbol of Egypt is Cleopatra and NObody portrays her better than Liz Taylor, hence my avatar! I have a 7 yr. old female green iguana that I named 'Cleopatra' also... or 'Cleo' for short. Liz' birthday is the day before mine. I also needed a pen name.

One of my dear friends is named Lady Bobbi, too. <sighhhhhhhh>

...and now for the craziest reason of all........ I think that I 'was' Cleopatra in another lifetime! LOL!

Hi I chose Lone Wolf because I'm divorced without children. I'm an only child myself. My dad had one brother who never married and never had any children and he passed away in 1996. My mother was an only child. Then I lost both of my parents in 1998. So hence the user name Lone Wolf. On the bright side I can hold a family reunion in a phone booth! However I really don't look forward to holidays at all. Christmas is the worst of all holidays.

I do have a girlfriend now and she has a daughter that is 11. We spend allot of time together. And I have allot of good friends that treat me like family.


Lone Wolf

When I joined there already was a "Dee". I was playing games on a Mac computer at the time so I just put "Mac" in front of "Dee".

I chose mystmum when I signed up to the Ubisoft forums to solve a technical problem I was having with Exile. I'm a stay at home mum, and love the Myst series and I'm lazy with the caps key, so mystmum worked fine. And now I answer to it all over the net, so why change?

First forum I ever joined was Home of the Underdogs.

I wanted a name that implied talking, canines & female. And if possible, used interesting letters (whatever that means).

Thus....Yapette was born.

This is a great thread - I always wondered where people got their user names. Mine's very simple - it's my name. Well, Barbara is my name, but I use Barb on the internet because it's short & simple.

Hi, Johnny, I'm like Tigger - I always think of Richard Thomas when I see "Johnboy"!
Syd - I used to think you were a man until I think you mentioned a husband one time. smile

Cheers,
Barb

Well, 'CC' is the city where I live in
California. And 'bomber' refers to the project I
used to work on (retired now).

Mine is NOT a variety of poison ivy, but the first syllables of my first and last names: Susan McMullen, with an extra "A" thrown in.

Well let's see, my email username, jgsax, has a much more interesting reasoning. My stepdad who raised me was Pete Green, so I went by Johnny Green most of my life even though I was not adopted so my legal name is Richmond. So when I returned to my home town I became Johnny Green again (except for legal stuff which confuses everyone even me). I am also a professional musician playing saxophone in various bands. Thus jgsax (Johnny Green Saxophone).

However, my username here is just because when I first joined, I was so used to game players being in their teens or early 20's that I figured I would be the oldest on the board. Pleasantly surprised I found a much more mature and enjoyable group here later. Anyway, that's why I chose oldman. Incidently, although not the oldest, I rank amoung them having been brought into this world in 1936.

Probably more than you asked for.

This is fun.
I have 2 user names I use the most. Ramothus started as my yahoo id and then I used it for eBay. I wanted a name that would reflect my love of fantasy etc and Anne McCaffrey had a dragon named Ramoth in her Dragons of Pern series. Yahoo had a Ramoth and suggested Ramothus which sounded good.

I also use Nikkelsworth in some places and that is the name of my Kiddog Niki. He is my shadow, very expressive, intelligent and vocal, and when he was a puppy my husband said , "If I ask him for his two cents worth he'll give me a nickels worth!" RPG forum menbers may recognise this name as part of my Morrowind characters name Hugo Nikkelsworth who also happens to be the son of the original Nikkelsworth. Hugo however is the strong silent type--very different from his daddy.

On another game board for Morrowind I think I used a name generator and finally kept Hurtful Granny because even though I have no grandchildren I am old enough to have some and I try to be as hurtful as I can to all the baddies in my game.
