    Talesin, I LOVED Mists of Avalon!

    I know I am not a new poster but I got my screen name by combining the first three letters of my stage name with the first three letters of the name my mother gave me.

    Hey, Rob ,,, so kewl!

    and bttt

    because ... enquiring minds want to know!!! doesn't matter if you are a 'newbie' or old,,, I'm interested.


  • GLTirebiter

    I chose the name of a recurring character in the Firesign Theater comedy sketches, George Leroy Tirebiter. Not much went right for him, despite the best of intentions (the emcee of the fictional Beat the Reaper game show introduced him as "winner of the Academy's coveted good sport award...").

    The Firesign quartet borrowed that name from a canine mascot on the USC campus. That George Tirebiter liked to chase cars and bicycles, nipping at their tires--thus his name (and also his eventual undoing).

    So be careful what you chase, because if you catch it who knows what may happen next? You might become the next Un-Believing Mate to sign up at JWN!

    Mine was dual purpose...when I picked it I was 10 years out of the Borg, and I also happen to love the music of Ten Years After...their Woodstock performance of I'm Going Home was incredible!

    umadevi -- uma, ahhh, you share a name with the amazing thurman,,, now that's cooool

    ChunkyMonkey --- that is so sweet, your little Chunk Monk, aww,

    Upon studying 'The Midwich Cuckoos' at school, a classmate remarked that I must be a Midwich Cuckoo as I have yellow eyes. It stuck throughout Grammar School.

    Low-Key Lysmith

    Just like Mad Sweeney, my handle is also the name of a character from a Neil Gaiman book - American Gods.

    Low-Key Lysmith = Loki Lie-Smith or Loki the Trickster from the Norse pantheon. Loki was Thor's brother.
