Where'd You Get Your AO Nickname? - Page 2

post #41 of 79
heck, until now not only did I not see the "u" in curiousburb, but I thought it was "CURIOUSBOB"

Anyway... my nick is pretty simple...

My first name is Lorenzo... and in college it was deemed too long, so, from day 2 of it, I became "zo" to the friends...

Exactly. We get jollied along, training our minds to think of "Midwinter" as having a certain tone, so when you post something like "Anyone second guessing the president should be shot" or "high time we bombed the Sudan into a smoking wasteland", our eyes just move right past it without it registering.

Fascinating stuff.

Oh, gawd, wouldn't it be funny if AO could figure out how to make it so that when we log in, our posts went under someone else's nickname?

You know, that might be an excellent idea.

That way, we'd all be obliged to actually read each other's posts and consider them on the merits, without the convenience of knowing beforehand that it was the work of depraved sociopath.

Those of us who have been around a long time may remember that the middle name is "Patrick" and the last name "Joyce," hence the occaisional "SPJ" reference. At some point he truncated it, presumably to avoid confusion with SamanthaJoanneOllendale (SJO), which was a very wise thing to do.

("ah, the seventies, we didn't have time for nothin'")

As for "splinemodel," I needed something unique back in the mid-late nineties. I'm a dork and I like math, plus I'm a 3D modeler who likes using splines. I'm also a runner, and I have a problem with stretchy ligaments such that if I don't prepare properly, my insides start to sag after a while of running. My running friends and former track teammates used to give me shit about my spleen being OK (or not).

The problem is actually the liver, but there's no quasi-double-meaning in "livermodel." I suppose then I could have been "Liverpool," but I'm not from Liverpool, nor do I like anything from Liverpool aside from perhaps Robbie Fowler.

Hmm. I'm sure I explained this before, but AI's search function seems to be wonked. \

Anyways, long story short, it came about due to a group of people I fell in with while I was living in Austin. And no, it has nothing to do with a certain Star Trek hottie.

Yose comes from my first Mac, a Yosemite G3.

On that Middle Earth name site, I used both my full family name and reduced family name and came up with Aduiâthion and Celebwethion in Elvish respectively.

I always get the question "Do you really play trumpet?"

I could understand if being a trumpet player were some cool skill that everyone would like to have as they see it in the movies so often.

Hi, I'm Ninjaboy. (Wow, do you really practice martial arts)

But trumpet?

I play trumpet. I'm a man. (Just ask your mom there son.)

Nuff said,

Nick

I always wondered what and how to pronounce your nickname. In my mind your 'curious the astronomy guy'.

My name came from a very funny friend in high school who somehow managed to get his name listed in his senior yearbook as 'Carson O'Genic' or maybe it was 'Karson O'Jenic'. I'll have to dig it out one day. Either way, I thought it very funny and clever, so I first used it on these boards when I couldn't think of anything else at the time. It is somewhat ironically humorous since I do research in biomedicine for a living.

It'd be funny if someone had the nickname "Lethe" and everyone who posted after him kept forgetting what the thread was about....
