Where did you get your screen name? Message board

  • View author's info Posted on Jun 30, 2005 at 07:15 AM

    I often wonder where people get their screen names. Did you choose it because there was nothing else to choose? It is your screen name most places or do you have different ones for different sites?

    I chose my screen name about 7 or 8 years ago. I use it on most sites that I go to. I chose it because there was very little to choose at the time. You say it like 'cyber'. At the time I was doing a lot of cyber s*x (I don't do that anymore because you don't know who is on the other end of the chat.) Now i tell people it is because of cyber space.

    Back in 1952, I used to watch the 'Kukla, Fran, and Ollie' children's T.V. puppet show.  Many believe that this show was the forerunner of Sesame Street.  You should google this show, and you should also google Cecil Bill, who was one of the puppets on this show.  Then, you might have some idea what I am trying to convey here.


    Cecil Bill was like an automoton, and he only said one thing.  That was "Toytoy toytoy."  I consequently believed that Toytoy was his name.  Dr.  Sharl had no idea what I was talking about here, and she had no idea why I was so obsessed with this hideous monstrosity when I was four years old in the depressing mortuary colloquially referred to as Malden, Massachusetts.  I would pace up and down in the three by five hallway for hours, saying "Toytoy Tadoytoy.  Hoyhoy Toytoy."


    One night, at four in the morning, Toytoy jumped out from my mirror and tried to kill me by smashing his head into my face and tickling me to death.  I banged on my parents' bedroom door, trying to get help, but they just ignored me and told me to go back to bed.  They did not believe me about Toytoy.  Neither did Dr. Sharl.  Do YOU believe me?


    Toytoy is a menace.  He must be destroyed.  His puppet is currently in the Kukla Fran and Ollie exhibit at the Chicago Museum of Natural History, but the curator of this museum is someone I went to college with, and he believed I was crazy.  After I wrote him a letter about Toytoy, it confirmed his belief.


    I even wrote a song about Toytoy.


    There are giant yellow spiders writhing under your bed.

    Giant yellow spiders climbing up your head.

    There's a giant yellow spider that is tickling your toes.

    I think we'll hide her inside of your clothes.


    I look in the mirror, and what do I see.

    Adolf Hitler looking back at me.

    Singing hoy hoy Toytoy, Toytoy Tadoy.

    I look in the water, and water I see?

    A face made of water, waterching me.

    The face disappears as it bites off my ears.

    I get sucked into the vortex as I lose half of my cortex.

    Singing hoyhoy Toytoy Toytoy Tadoy.

    Singing hoyhoy Toytoy Toytoy Tadoy.

    Singing hoyhoy Toytoy Toytoy Tadoytoy.

    Hoy hoy Toytoy Toytoy Tadoy.

    I chose my nickname on irc in 1995. It started as Guide-Bot (the character in the video game Descent 2), then got kicked off of IRC a bunch of times because they thought I was a bot, so I changed it to guideX, been that ever since.

    I got mine about 10 years ago from a Canadian friend who now lives here in Oz... he thought I was 'hot', and Annie is a nickname... so he decided I'd be called Annieonfire... hated it at first but it's grown on me now.

    The first lady I met online and showed my pic said I looked like the Total_Package with my Grandchild in my arms. Hence the name stuck.

    my screen name is to remember my sister lougene who died of cancer 2 yrs. ago. a little way to let her name live on because it's a strange name. lougene is part of of my mother's middle name louise and my father's eugene...very inventive for 1956. huh
