    I ama boy, and I come from Awendaw, SC. That makes me a hick. "Boyhick" does not flow as well as "hickboy", so there we are...

    Hmm...ok I've going to reveal the kid in me, but Morgana Drake was the character I created for the sole purpose of roleplaying (what can I say, I like to write). And since I couldn't come up with a better nickname, I just plugged it in here as well.

    I like (Love) Mozilla FireFox and think everyone should use it, so I say that people should FIND it and use it.

    well, i always wanted to have a glam life, hence "Prince" and i always wanted a more galm name. hence "Will" Will's not my real name. it's the name i use online. my full Internet name is William Van De Brock. it's weird and funny, but i love it.

    so, i guess i am:
    HRH William Van De Brock, Prince of Nassau of the Bahamas (i really live in the Bahamas!)

    *Is a fan of firefox :cool:

    Oh, and for myself my name was made up from scratch about 6 years back (somehow other people have done the same and already stole the IM version and such....someday I will hunt them down and kill them :rolleyes: ) and it was based upon astrology and lord of the rings (yes, I was a geek in high school). I liked the "ion" ending on names/places in Lord of the Rings, and then I merged it with a star named Altair in the Orion constellation (pretty much the only one I can ever manage to find). Then in the end, out popped the name Altairion (like a baby...or something like that).

    The End.

    i always had a cold in college - always. my friends, because they're so gorgeously original, used to call me gonner; gonea is a variation of that. the 'a' however is accidentally capitalized making it seem like the name is Gone A ... it's not.


    i think jeepwranglerboi has the best name.

    I thought it was because your real name was Woody.

    Some people in the chat room will ask hopefully whether "26" refers to my size (in centimeters, I guess??) Nope -- it's just how old I was when I joined LPSG. At the time I obviously wasn't expecting to be here 5 years later!

    Uno "stronzo" is Italian slang. It's an adjective and sometimes its meaning fits me quite well.

    I'll let the author of the thread figure it out since it's used all over Italy in converstation.

    alex8? NO FAIR HELPING!:wink:
