    Question Why did you choose your user name?

    Some seem obvious, other less so, and some, well, I ain't going there.

    Natrushka is one of the Russian diminuitive / pet names of Natasha, one of my names.

    Really.

    Very simple. Originally, I chose the 'athenian' part because I liked to think of myself as having known the philosophers and culture of ancient Athens. The '200' part was because I liked the sound of usernames with numbers at the end. Later on, it was just what I was used to being called.

    Got to love diminutives that are longer than the original name. I chose this user name because I really, really (to a geek-like degree) like Sherlock Holmes and always thought Mycroft was one of the most interesting supporting characters.

    Phyllobates Terribilis Gatsby;

    A poison dart frog that uses neurotoxin to disable/kill those that attack it, and of course, Gatsby, from "The Great Gatsby". Yes, the connection I chose was between neurotoxin and love the character.

    Thank you for satisfying my curiosity. Has anyone ever told you that you're weird?

    "A Cross and A Girl Named Bless" is one of my favorite songs.
    I bet they'll put something in the air tonight, just to light your face.

    Shockingly, never. Really.

    targo is what my brother use to call me as a child.....

    my name is tara.... I think he was trying to tell me to go... I use to call him gogo though so maybe he was saying tara and gordie. really who knows. If targo is ever taken (which often it is) I just add 88 to the end.... it works....

    I used to be an active member of INTPopen and some other yahoo groups. I was using my email address which contains my last name and once, somehow, someone sent a weird email to my mom from my account. I never figured out how it happened, but it made me paranoid.

    I decided to use a different handle for my groups. I came up with one, but one of the guys on the groups didn't like it because it was stupid, so I brainstormed until I came up with one he didn't think was stupid.

    It had to be a monstrosity because everything is already taken on yahool and I dislike having numbers in my username. The end result was cafeaulaitinfj. I love coffee with milk (and sugar) and it coolly rhymes with INFJ, so there you go.

    Then I joined INTPc (the yahoo group had been pretty much taken over by trolls because it was unmoderated). I used cafeaulaitinfj because I was used to it, but eventually found it unwieldy, so it was shortened to cafe at my request. I brought it with me from INTPc.

    the end
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    Llenyd is a name I created for an AD&D character many years ago. I've been using the name for games and forums ever since.

    It's fashioned after the Welsh names of Arthurian lore, eg Llenlleawg, Myrddin, Bedwyr.
