A Nancy Sinatra song.

I'm a pretty big fan of hers, particularly her collaborations with Lee Hazlewood (though I should note The Last of The Secret Agents was not written by him).

My forum user name is my initials backwards plus Northern California and 559 is my area code. Nothing special just have been using it for many many years!

wabnaki from the Algonquian language, sometimes spelled abnaki or abenaki meaning "from the east". I hail from the Big Apple.

Eyisila was the name of my Dark Elf brawler in Everquest2. I loved the name so much I've held onto it for over a decade now.

I've had the same username for virtually everything since 1999. If you remember the show Laverne & Shirley from the '70s, it is the club that the main characters were in when they were in high school. It comes with a snazzy song and everything. The show aired on Nick at Nite when I was in junior high and immediately became my favorite.

Mine is for my favorite character that only appears in two Looney Tunes cartoons with Bugs Bunny. The only monster to wear white sneakers!

Mine is for Lola Bunny from looney tunes!

My old one was just my first name, but since I got locked out, My new one is an old sn I made in high school. Just something I created that sounded vaguely fantasy-nameish.  O0

It's a combination of two things. My love of Totoro and sleep, even though I dont get enough of the latter.

My daughter inadvertently gave me the nickname Straightline one Christmas around 2001 or 2002, when she was about 4 or 5 years old. We have a tradition in my family where we like to open gifts one at a time, and take our time to "ooh and ahh" over each opening. At some point, we asked the youngest child to play the role of 'elf' delivering gifts, which worked great because younger kids usually feel more involved and less antsy when put to work being elves. (Put them to work and they’re happy about it, go figure.) Now the elf has been part of our tradition for many years.

This particular year, my dad asked my daughter to deliver a small square box wrapped in red paper. I should mention that I'm named after my father and grandfather -- my dad is junior and I am the third. On this particular gift, my dad had addressed it, "To: III, Love: Jr."  When my daughter picked up the gift, she stared at the label for a minute, furrowed her brow, and then exclaimed: “this one doesn’t make any sense! It just says straightline, straightline, straightline, with a straightline on top and a straightline on bottom!”  Everybody laughed, and the nickname stuck.  And the number 3 is my favorite number not only because of the above, but also because I was born at 3:33am. However I don’t usually add 3 to my username unless someone else has already taken straightline, which does not appear to be the case on this forum. So… whoops.

Holy smokes, perhaps I wrote too much to explain my username!
