lol Because I live in upstate New York. lol (And because it's approx 4,700 miles away from here, not to mention the fact that I've always loved it and because that's where I'm moving to. bravo )


Life is too important to be taken seriously.

What a great topic. I used to research names as a profession at a government post, quite facinating. So....
Ghostlady was formed from my web space "Mystery Manor". It kind of tells its own story. She does come out on the 'blackest' of nights with one exception, when there is a Harvest Moon. Which, by the way, is tonight. Maybe you will catch a glimpse...

Facts:
The harvest moon—the full moon closest to the autumnal equinox—falls on September 10. Consequently, the hunter's moon, falls on October 10.


Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again.

A few years ago, a friend of mine had a personal disaster that was gonna cost a chunk of money. I had just received a huge retroactive pay check, and offered to help out. She started calling me her Fairygodmother, for coming in with help, just in the nick of time. Soon my other friends were calling me that, to tease me, whenever I did something nice. When I first took the name as a signon, you could only have 12 characters, so I left out the O's.

I picked mine, because I'm into fantasy and adventure and the deep down belief that I was a wizard or an alchemist in a previous life lol

Actually I had a very difficult time coming up with a screen name. <img border="0" alt="cry" title="" src="graemlins/cry.gif" /> The one I chose is not the one I always use. think This one was picked just for GBer's.

I happen to be watching the Eiger Sanction on the boob tube a while back and Clint Eastwood's character was code named Hemlock. The name kind of fit right in with theme I was in at the time, because I had just finished playing the omega stone and chemicus slapforehead when I joined this illustrious group of BAAGers. whistle

My favorite aunt, who sadly died last year, gave me this name when I was a little girl (many years ago). She had this thing about giving everybody some silly name - my sister Sue was Soupy, my brother Ray was Rangy, her other nieces were Cookie and Sweet eek . When I had to register a user name when I got a computer, I felt that this was the time for my silly name. She got the biggest kick out of it when I told her that I had registered as fildil.

Fil wink

By the way Nolalou, this aunt was from New Orleans and though I've never been there, she always talked about it so much that I always felt like it was almost a second home.

Nope, I'm not a witch or a wiccen. lol

Witchen was generated from being called a witch because of my (perceived) talent in solving conundrums in a hurry in adventure gaming. I revised the tag from Witchie to Witchen, because well......there's only one!

Mine's just k for my first name (Kim) and wbridge is part of my last name (well, my maiden name). When I first got an email account it's what I came up with (I might have needed 8 characters - I don't really remember) and I've been using it as my username ever since. My email has, however, since changed.

Not really a very interesting story ... :-)

I'm originally from Oregon and still feel a bond with the woods there. I love big trees and the Sequoia is the grandest of them all. Whenever we travel we end up with several pictures of me hugging trees. Some day I will live back on the west coast, but until then I shall just be Sequoia.

I feel so bad for you all, on my name.

When I first established an online presence, I wanted a name that I could remember, and that wasn't anything in particular. I wanted a name that was not evocative of, well, anything. So, I picked some letters from my first and last name. So far, so good, but what the heck was I thinking - there are no vowels in my online name! What a nightmare for people to spell! I see people struggling to get it right, on every board I contribute to. If I could go back in time and change it, I would do so. Unfortunately, it's too late now, my online presence is established, so I'm keeping it.

Incidentally, please don't worry about getting it right, when you reply to me.

I came up with Flutist because I play flute. I teach flute and play flute in a community orchestra. I also teach and play guitar but I concentrate on flute, hence, "flutist"

(btw that means "peace/greetings" in D'ni, the Myst universe language)

Salar is a character from Myst the Book of Atrus. She's nobody famous. Just a friendly villager from the 37th Age who seems to do a lot of laundry. laugh

When I first came online one of my very first actions was to google for Cyan & subsequently join Rivenguild. On Riven Lyst I learned about the Myst books for the first time, and I was reading them the same week as trying to pick a screen name for myself.

I related strongly to the character of Salar, so I gave that name a whirl. Turned out I was the only one in the Myst community who had ever adopted that name. I found it was uncommon elsewhere so it seemed handy just to keep using it. smile

I added "of Myst" on this forum to indicate the name's origin & give my favourite game in the world a further remembrance. Seems silly now, because everybody here knows Myst, but I have no clue how to shorten it.

So there ya are. By now "Salar" is so familiar, I will answer to it just like my birth name.

I worked at Charles Schwab brokerage for six years and would use his last name attached to my age at the time I joined the forum (35).

Not very interesting, especially since I no longer work there.

Salar -- I've read all the Myst books, and I don't remember Salar at all, so adding "of Myst" does make a difference.

When I reread the books I'll definitely keep an eye out for Salar.

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

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!
