FReeper names explained
My curiousity | Now | Yours truly

Posted on 01/18/2002 5:03:35 PM PST by Come get it

Some FReepers have nicks that are obvious in their origin, others don't. I've seen several that probably have interesting stories behind them.

I thought it would be cool to see where FReepers get their handles from. If you don't like this topic, DON'T POST HERE! No one forces you to read this. I'm sure other people may be interested. If I'm the only one, let me know so I can crawl away in shame.

It's only fair that I start.

Mine is a direct challenge to Waxman, Feinswine, and all the other gun-grabbers of their kind.

I live in Dallas and my first name is Mike. I like fireplaces, long walks on the beach at night, and warm puppies with wet noses.

My screen name, petuniasevan, is actually a role-playing name from my childhood.
I have an autistic cousin who gave my brother and I special names, almost as recognition codes.
To this day, if we visit him we must identify ourselves by these names.

My DH uses the screen name poorman. He grew up military-brat-poor in the '70s.

LibKill.

A variant on the insecticide brand "RealKill"(tm).

I am to liberals as "RealKill"(tm) is to insects.

I speak the truth and they go into fatal spasms.

My real name was already taken by someone pretending to be someone they're not, namely me, so I use the nom de guerre by which I am known among my club brothers based on my preferred mode of transportation.

Two reasons for my "handle":

1. Russian word for "arrow," and I know just about enough Russian to get my face slapped in Moscow

2. I'm an archer.
