View Full Version : Explain your User Title

I see a lot of members who have used the Custom User Title to put in something creative, unusual, or offbeat. Some have clear meanings, others are explained in the profiles, but some I just can't figure out. So, I thought I'd start a thread in the same spirit as explaining your user name.

I chose mine not only because I sometimes enjoy snarky comments, but as a reference to one of the most off the wall pieces of epic nonsense ever written, Lewis Carrol's Hunting of the Snark. I used to be able to recite nearly every nonsense poem in Alice in Wonderland entirely from memory.

I've had a few so far, I plan on changing it now and then to reflect my current mood or state of mind.

Me, Myself and I Don't Know - I wrote a poem with this title once, and it basically means that to some extent, I know myself, but to another extent, I don't.

Writer of the Lost Art - inspired by Raiders of the Lost Ark

Poll and Unhappily Snog - an anagram of my name, Poppy LaDonna Hullings

Eats Life out of the box - I literally and metaphorically eat Life out of the box

"American Aquarium Drinker" comes from Wilco's I Am Trying to Break Your Heart which features many of my favorite all time lyrics.

I am an American aquarium drinker/I assasin down the avenune/I'm hiding out in the big city blinking/What was I thinking when I let go of you?

Deleted my first entry because it didn't make sense.

My new title is Time Traveler. That and my location ID refers to the fact that I write regional history books. I guess I live in the past, and at 34 years old, I am nostalgiac for periods in which I didn't exist! So, I write about them.

Jenna gave me mine. It magically appeared one day!

Came about after I reached post #50 and I mentioned that I missed the good old days at the other board when Jenna awarded all the cool titles. Betty reminded me of the sad fates that sometimes befell the poor souls who actually asked for titles. I stressed the fact that I didn't ask for anything! I also had to slip Liam a few greenbacks so he wouldn't try to deport my parrots. The next day I had the title. :D

'Sarky besom' is just a Scots way of saying 'cheeky cow'. A 'besom' is actually a old-fashioned broom (of the witch variety) - and no, I don't know why it's used this way either.

I chose it because of my dreadful weakness for cheap jokes.

I was thinking quickly, didn't go into any deep analysis, but it occurred to me what other people would think when they saw my name was wurdwise, jeez, what a smarty pants name. So I said, yes, I know, me too, meaning I agreed. But then, once I looked at it, it took on a meaning I like better. Yes...I think I know what you are feeling about lots of things...I feel that way too.

I think I remember that discussion. I wanted a cool title, too. Didn't get it.

As for mine, I really am a calm sort of person. Sort of. "Stormie" comes from being born on a stormy night, and when I was a baby and toddler (and preschooler and...) my personality was far from calm. My father always said they should've named me stormie. Now, though, I am a calm person. I AM!!!

Writes for beer and smokes . . . as play on that fact that often a writer's pay is low, and well . . . You can figure out the rest.

Not to mention that a few articles I wrote for a local yokel rag paid in dinner and beer. Sad, I know, and I can say that now I get paid considerably better--although I the pay is still for beer and smokes. ;)

Sleepless in Dreamland

I'm a fantasy writer and spend most of my time daydreaming about the worlds and characters I invent. Sometimes I spend whole nights just laying in bed and going through complete scenes and events (one night I went through half a novel) while trying to go to sleep. I wake up in the morning tired, but inspired. It's the same in the daytime. I've had times when I'm working around the house and so immersed in my own fantasy world that...well it gets embarrassing.

I liken my learning of the writing craft to a journey and so it relates to the road I am walking to learn the craft and become published.

But my life has also been a series of adventures, ups and downs, accidents, mishaps, boons and blessings that all conspired to lead me right here - at this exact moment - writing this post.

So I often consider myself just a guy walking the road of life, happy and content as he makes his way, enjoying the pitstops along the way.

But of course - with all that sunshine must come rain, and with laughter must come pain, and the warm sunlight and the balmy breeze must sometimes give way to storms and darkness and cold.

Yet still I plod on.

I stole "Hipster Doofus" from that Seinfeld episode where Kramer falls in love with the woman in the wheel chair. She broke up with him and called him a hipster doofus.

My husband thought that was so funny because I look and act normal, but I am so clumsy. He insists I'm a hipster doofus. (I am remarkably clumsy; I once fell out of a chair at a job interview--I got the job, though.)

I used to have "Rocking in the free world" from the Neil Young song. "Keep on Rocking in the free world" just doesn't fit, though.

I wanted "Dazed, confused, prone to wandering" but that wouldn't fit.

I sense a theme - my titles won't fit!

I'm now "prone to wandering" because that describes my writing. I start things, I forget about them, I find them years later and wonder WTF was I thinking.

On the old boards, Jenna made me a co-administrator with her and Amy since she did not have time to keep up with spamming, crazies, etc. and I was (at the time) on the boards several hours a day, every day. Afterwards, when she told me what she'd done, she said that if I didn't like the title "Co-administrator", I could choose my own title. So, I jokingly replied, "Cool, then I'd like to be "Empress of the Cyberworld"! She took me at my word... and so - here I am, Empress of the Cyberworld, with my own little smiley empress picture. Oh, sure, I could change it to a title more fitting (maybe "Raving beauty" .. or just "Raving"...) but I've become used to being Empress and am loath to abdicate.

Moral of the story: be careful what you ask for. You may get it. And then you might like it.

Unfortunately I was not able to choose my user title. It is simply a progression on the "Esteemed New Member" and "One of the Locals" line. I had great hopes for choosing a title, but as you will recall upon reaching 50 posts I was suddenly saddled with the title Dangerous Newcomer. I believe this is simply what happens at 50 posts with a minus ten reputation. (Choosing a custom icon was achievable, possibly a bug in the system.)

Similarly, at 100 posts (still with a net negative reputation) I was given this moniker. It must be the software. The whole situation is really quite unfair, as I always strive to post only accurate, thoroughly researched material, as evidenced here.

Ah, yes!

Well you see, it's really quite an ellaborate story........


As an "esteemed new member" on the Absolute Write forums, I was simply intrigued by the seemingly endless amount of topics and threads to post in at this writer's community.

As I began to write, a strange and miraculous process began to occur. I began to grow and accumulate posts and thus began my metamorphosis.

Although my mutation has yet to be completed, I am currently at the phase in which is titled the "Super Member" mutation.

I am what they call a "newbie" to this community, and have not completely adapted, thus I have not yet acquired any of the tell-tale signs of a full-blown addict of the Absolute Write forums; a neon green blob.

I am merely a little one amongst the crowd. I am not yet as strong as many of the others of my kind, but I have learned that in this wonderful institution, with reading, nurturing, tweaking and some critiquing, I will nourish my skill and become strong.

It is then, and only then, that I will evolve into my true self, in which I will be able to appropriately title the piece of work that is me.

WriteRead is self-explanatory: I consider myself a writer and they say that a writer has, but HAS to read, no joke here :) .
Here and only in writing forums I use the WriteRead handle for obvious reasons, just to go along w something that fits the venue.

For any other use, my other handle is "dbjes", which I use since Oct., 2000, when I first dived into the www.
I didn't change it since then, neither did I change my password since then, BTW, at least the basic one, unless they ask for more characters than I use.

"Dieu et mon Droit" is the motto on the shield of the British royal family, IIRC, and it means ijn French "God and my Right", meaning "... right hand", meaning that I put my faith in Him and then I do my thing. Yes, I do believe in God. You can read my "I Believe" in Christian Forum, p. 2.

That actually was her favorite when we were in high school. We went to school in New Canaan (CT) -- which (ahem) I'm sure you all know, was listed in the "Preppy Handbook" as THE preppiest town in America.
[We moved there from New York City. We spoke funny. We hated New Canaan.]

My favorite riddle/joke while attending New Canaan High School was:

Q: Why did the first monkey fall out the tree?
A: Because it was dead.

Q: Why did the second monkey fall out of the tree?
A: Because it was stapled to the first monkey.

Q: Why did the third monkey fall out of the tree?
A: Peer pressure.

Ah, the old jokes are the best jokes! I'll never forget seeing Henny Youngman perform at the Empire Deli in Boston - freshman year, college. Every joke he told, I'd heard umpteen times before. Never laughed that hard in all my life, though; even "Take my wife... please!" brought howls.

Have/had friends from New Canaan and towns around. And yes, I remember the Preppy Handbook! Got three copies of it for my birthday in the same year.

Thanks for bringing back the memories! Going now to put Haircut One Hundred on the stereo (yes, the LP).

Mine is because the worst I ever frightened someone was when I put this in the subject line of an email to him:

Hello, CD. I know your address. And that's not all...

He didn't know me - a friend had told me to email him. *bwahaha...* And there is nothing worse than a creepy person who knows where you live.

Terrible joke -

My new title was inspired by how some people seem to think that The Conspiracy is keeping their cause hushed up or their efforts from taking off, such as a certain "Traditional Publisher" and their favorite scapegoat. Sometimes the "conspiracy" is nothing more than the opinions of normal society. And to people who are talking about that sort of conspiracy... I am one of THEM.

oh it says I'm a board fanatic. I don't know how to change it. I think I'll just wait for it to change at will. Even if I knew how to change it I wouldn't know what to put.

I read a quote once that said: "I am free to write the worst crap in the world."

I loved it but the whole thing wouldn't fit, so I shortened it a bit.

yah okay I just saw how to change mine so I did.

Alright my dad named after a princess from outer space from a book he read in high school. I'm still looking for the book cause I want to read it.

I blame him for my love of science fiction. He made me watch Star Trek and Planet of the Apes with him. It's because of that that I am a writer of science fiction today.

Go speculation!

Perpetual WIP... means I'm a work in progress that won't be finished until the day I die... As we learn, change opinions, change goals, make new goals, have dreams, accomplishments, and so on we change and so does the story of our life. we can't know the final product until it's done.

I had my own picture up--realized how much I hate looking at myself.

So I went back to being anonymous. With a moose picture. Call it a tribute to our friends in the Great White North.

Wait a minute....I have to check mine first, I forgot what I put. I've had so many, many, many titles.

Current one: Postess with the Mostess--pretty self-explanatory. I have the most posts of all the females here at AW. Don't ya think that's some feat?

A far more noble venture than the motion picture title it parodies, and because no studio will ever produce a movie about an everyday working schlub getting a children's book published.

Mine currently says: "Wickedly Defying Gravity"

I went to see the Broadway musical "Wicked" last weekend, and "Defying Gravity" is a song that Elphaba (The "Wicked" Witch of the West) sings, along with G(a)linda, The "Good" Witch. I fell in love with the story and the music a while back, but it was a JOY to see the musical!

My job involves sports and specifically right now, college football. Tailgating is a dangerous event that precedes the football game and involves food, drink and fun. Jello shots are everywhere on game day and they terrify me.

Autophobia is "fear of being alone", and a misanthrope dislikes being with people. It's a deliberate contradiction in terms.

"Run and tell all the angels"

My selection of user titles is, of course, limited by character space. But I liked this one which comes from a song by the Foo Fighters. I saw it and found it apt for my purposes.

How else does one spread the word that one has emerged from the Underworld, wide-eyed and exhilarated, with prize in hand?

And how better to warn those who are next on my list?

I had 'mad bad and dangerous to know' borrowed from Oscar Wilde but that didn't go with a heron, sigh, so flying at the speed of DARK fits better. Considering that Black Holes swallow light, they're faster yes? Or else they catch the slow lights... or the ones who are looking the oher way and aren't paying attention...BWA HAHAHAHAHAA!

Mine "Goodbye my Almost Lover" is from a song that I like by A Fine Frenzy, called "Almost Lover" It is my user title because I just said goodbye to an almost lover a couple of days ago.

Accroches-toi ton rve , is french from an ELO song, and it means: 'hold on tight to your dreams'.

the quote in my sig line, is from the Jethro Tull song - 'Thick as a Brick'

I'm Cranky because that's the mood I was in when I joined up.

I change the usertitle on a whim. Right now, it's reflecting the hangover I have from yesterday's shenanigans.

Hmmm. I think I've done this before, but for those who don't know.

I used to live in Texas, from Austin, lived in S.A.Tx. for 14 years before I went west to Vegas a couple years ago.

The compass degrees for west is 270, Joe is my first name.

So, it's westward Joe.

Sorta like westward Ho. (Sorry, ladies.)

I thought it was funny. No one else has ever gotten it. Oh, well.
