  • (GD) Why your username?

    Seems every one has a colorful Username on the web. So I was wondering what was the story behind YOUR name?

    I'll go first, "Saxe Coburg" is my family's old German house name. I go by this name often on and off the web. OK, your turn.

    look through the archives, this came up about....i'd say a few weeks ago. Should still be in there.

    I looked, couldnt find it, maybe a MOD can pull it up.

    But if you can't find it, i don't mind going a seconf round. Grimace is my overall outlook of the future, and is also the name of two items i owned in high school, wich were puprle, and held water (i will leave it at that) and i really think the Purple Mc Donalds thing/creature is cool. LOL

        Ya, I believe Grant did this topic already.

        Anyway, I play on the Offensive line on my high school football team. I would of picked "Grant" but was about 2 weeks too late.

            The previous thread got so long that it ate the old server....or was at least trying to do so.

            We had to kill it before it took over the entire world. Or at least AW.Net's corner of the world.

            But we shouldn't have that problem now, so post away, people. Once everyone gets their entries down and it moves back a page or so, I'll archive it. So, this is your chance to show your true colors for the record.

            Just imagine what web historians will make of it in a hundred years or so!

              To make people ask why I picked it and what it means.... which is nothing.

              It isn't a word.

              This came from what we called the German stick grenades as kids before we knew the real name.

              I thought of shortening it, but like to see if people can respell it when they respond to my posts.

                      This is because:

                            I drift through life.

                            I like to drift fish.

                            I liked the early sixties pop group the Drifters.
