  1. Oh-so-long I've been curious about this!
    Some names here are quite 'out there', and some are self-explanatory - how do you see yourself when you pick a 'handle' to represent your Self online, and what do you mean to convey - mystery, intelligence, aloofness, superiority or humbleness ---- distance, anonimity, or a joining with the rest of humanity. We were all given names at birth, but what made you choose your online identity?

    (Found And Lost are simply two adjectives that apply to me in that order - through a lot of crapola, and describe my state)

    I think mine is self explanitory hehe.I picked it to convey the message that "yes i have been there" so i do no how your feeling ( most of the time).

    (From Wikipedia, I couldn't be bothered to explain it myself)

    "The Malcontent is a character type often used in Shakespeare's plays. This character is discontent with the events and other characters in the play. He or she is often an observer who comments on the action and may even show awareness that they are in a play.

    The malcontent is an important figure in later English Renaissance drama. The role is usually both political and dramatic; with the malcontent voicing dissatisfaction with the usually 'Machiavellian' political atmosphere and often using asides to build up a kind of self-consciousness and awareness of the text itself which other characters in the play will lack to the same extent.

    The morality and sympathy of the malcontent is a massive variable.
    The malcontent will almost always be presented wearing black, and is always an isolated figure in the court."

    That english lit a-level wasn't wasted :rolleyes:

    Matthew 25:40 "... verily I say unto you, inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these, my brethren, ye have done it unto me."

    A reminder to help those less fortunate than myself - and there are many, for I am blessed, whether I think so or not - and a reminder that humility is an excellent character trait.

    My grandmother always used to tell me "A gentlelady never asks too many questions." Of course this was always after I had been questioning her constantly. So by age 5 I no longer asked them, just did what I was told. Hence gentlelady.

    NOTE TO GENTLELADY: My parents always taught us to question EVERYTHING and to take nothing for granted... I still do.

    Difference in philosophy I guess. Another saying is a quote she told me to always be mindful of. "Mine is not to question why. Mine is just to do or die." You know the end of that story.

  11. Allo..

    Allo.. Well-Known Member

    My name, is a nickname i have =) Online my name is either Allo, Allo.., Pasanova or Apasanova.

    Allo is a nickname and the two dots represent that I am not finished, that there is always more, and that everything seems to get trailed off into the distance after a while.

    Pasanova is what a lot of people know my last name as, it's not that, but a friend tried to pronounce it and i said no, so she said "So what is it then?! Pasanova?!" and from then on, that's what it's been =)

    My screen name is from the T.V. show MXC. IF you've seen the show then my name should be funny to you, if you've never seen it then my name doesn't make as much sense.
