The cat picture is too funny.

The "O" in my screen name is from my maiden name, O'Reilly. I can then claim Irishness as the reason for my bad temper when I don't get my way. "I'm not a bitch -- I'm Irish!" Twisted Evil

It's not crying. Just didn't want a picture taken.

Sgt. Steve is called that because he's a member of the Dorsai Irregulars. We do volunteer work as security at specialty conventions, including SF, Fantasy, Mythology, etc. I was president of the group for a while. When I stepped down they asked me to keep running the meetings because like an old sergeant, I can keep the troops in line.

Godzilla...

I was a doorman at a bar for a number of years where I developed a trick involving alcohol and a bic lighter. My nickname Godzilla was born... Anyway, I have a new house now and have promised not to do that trick again.

i have alot of nicknames, usually given to me by girls who think the hairy thing is cute. I have a hairy belly and chest, and yet am 16. So i have names like bear and ted (as in teddy).
Lloydface sticks out like some strange appendage in my list of names. Sara, my wonderful swedish friend used to call me it and still does on occasion. She used to say, "Hey you with the face" before she knew me but then she knew my name so it became Lloydface.
LMAO at the crying cat.

I actually signed up here awhile ago under Jamierose but just lurked. Then I read a few more Moores and began posting wildly. I forgot that I had already signed up and used kidzlibrarian which I use for various listservs, for self evident reasons. My real name is Helen but when I was a kid I thought Helen sounded like an old maiden aunt so being a tomboy I told everyone my name was Jamie. I just liked it. This sparked my brother Steven to call himself Howie and my cousin Aaron to call himself Mick. I was using my step-father's last name because we were living with him and I was tired of having to explain why I had a different last name from my parents. So my school records have different names on them depending on the year. I remember going to summer camp when I was 13 and after a week my counselor told me that I wasn't supposed to be there, I wasn't registered. She asked me if I knew anything about a girl named Helen who was registered but hadn't shown up. I used the name Jamie Beaumont for seven years before I decided I had grown into my real name and really was an old maiden aunt. I still use the name Jamie with old friends. I decided a few years ago that my alter identity needed a middle name so now it's Jamie Rose Beaumont. No, I don't have multiple personality disorder, just didn't like the name my parents picked. I thought it would make a good pseudonym, Jamie Beaumont. Just got to write and publish a book, I guess.

Well, my real name is Jason Fliess. The last name is pronounced "Fleece." In Greek myth, Jason, captain of the Argonauts, went on a quest for the Golden Fleece. So that's where Argonaut came from.

Some friends of mine back home call me Fleecey. I don't know why. So that's where Fleecey came from.

Hence: ArgonautFleecey

Blarg is just my word to describe my general unsatisfaction/dismay/whatever 'blah' feeling i have.

I was actually going to register as Lost Sanity, but it was too close to Think Insane's name.

Katarina Ariadne Navane is my all purpose pseudonym. Katarina is from Taming of the Shrew, Ariadne is from greek mythology. I thought I made up the name Navane, but it turns out it's a drug for schitzophrenia. That makes it kind of ironic for the name of my alter ego, eh? lol
Anyway, Katarina Ariadne Navane doesn't fit into most screenname thingies, so I just use the first and last names.
