    The . came a few years before the plaid, when I bought Diablo I. I was fascinated by the notion of Blizzard's battle.net online play so I make a .rena character to fight in the battle arena ... battle.net cum battle.rena. The . has stuck for all of my future DI characters (if you've ever teamed with a legit .xxx toon it was prolly me), and when I first noticed plaid for the first time I fell in love. Did I mention that I have a plaid tat? Anyway....

    I put the two together in college during a, I don't know, Java or maybe C++ class when the idea of classes were introduced. IIRC class properties are defined or called as class.property. That's why the tageline on my blog is "coding life in a world of colors" - I'm no programmer but it's not really abouty coding programs so much as it is an identity blah blah blah.

    As an aside, some folks call me "plaid" even though I consider the informal of this moniker as "dot". /waves


    ...golly, thought I'd replied here already.

    Best,

    Mine's from the nickname my friends gave me because I'm tall and lanky and once (while drunk) i poised like a grasshopper in a fake kung fu fight.. so since then they called me grasshopper, then shortened it to hopper.. and 84 my birth year.

    I created my username "way back" in the mid-nineties when I first got access to AOL. I've always loved playing soccer and wanted my username to be "soccerbuddy". Well, AOL had a character limit, so it was shortened to "soccerbudd". It's my generic username, though I prefer my name if it's not already taken.

    My husband and I love gekkos and our Graphics business is called Gekko Graphics .
    One day about 8 years ago this little neighbor boy came a over and said " Mrs.Gekko I can pay you a quarter if you will make my mom a birthday card for me."
    My husband laughed hysterically and started calling me Mrs-Gekko.

    Mine dates back from a particular Pearls Before Swine comic strip that had me in hysterics for some reason when I read it.

    The gist of it goes like this: Rat starts a book with the sentence, "The sea was teeming with angry monkeys." Goat complains you can't begin a story with a crazy sentence with no context. Next sentence, "KABOOM! Went the seaside monkey factory moments before."

    Akitayo

    AKITAYO means I AM HERE but in Spanish AQUI ESTOY YO it is a contraction instead of the AQUI word is AKI
    instead of the ESTOY word is TA
    plus YO (I) in English

    AQUI ESTOY YO
    AKI TA YO

    I AM HERE:smile:

    i used to be very involved in collecting nike/jordan shoes, and i was always intent on getting the next pair the day they were released. i went to the stores with an OBJECTIVE to get the pair of shoes before they sold out.
