How did you choose your username?

Post by SunburnedPenguin on Fri May 16, 2008 5:52 pm

Just curious really, there is such a variety of cool usernames here I wondered what everyones thinking was behind them?

Mine is because I have the mental age of about 5 and loved the joke Micheal sent to Walt from hospital - "Whats black and white and red all over? A sunburned penguin!" tickled me that did alien

Well I have this name on funtrivia.com website, because I really like Lilo and Stitch.

However for the Lost site it is appropriate because

Stitch is a Disney production as is Lost

Lilo and Stitch set in Hawaii and Lost is filmed there

I look like an alien .. (just joking) (well I hope I am joking)

My eldest son is called Jude and when he was a baby we used to nickname him 'obscure' b/c of the classic novel 'Jude the Obscure'. Because obscure can mean 'to hide' I use it when 'obscuring' my true identity! I have never meant 'obscure' in the sense of 'weird' but I do like its double-meaning.

Mine is obviously directly pulled from the show's dialogue. However, before I went back and rewatched that episode to make sure I was quoting it verbatim, I was thinking he said something like "Dude, you've got a chunk of Arzt on you," so I was gonna be ChunksOfArzt. He says, "Dude, you've got some Arzt on you," though. At least I was right about the "dude" part. Hurley's vocabulary is so predictable.

I chose mine because it represented to me a way to incorporate three of the main Characters names hence; Kate-Sawyer-Jack.

1337 is for Leet-speek (nerds like myself will know what this is, or, google will haha) and Jacqui is my name Smile

the 1337 part actually starts with a lowercase L though because most screennames don't let you start with a number, and a lowercase L looks just like a 1 haha
