I chose mine many years ago when internet sites were BBS's on dial up modems (back in the Dark Ages)...
I had just finished reading a really beautifully illustrated book of Irish Legends (The Book of Invasions - by Jim Fitzpatrick)
and was struck by a bit of the poem in the story of Tuan mac Cairill - who lives for many thousands of years in various animal and human forms....
The lines were "I am Legend, I am Memory, I am Memory turned into myth"

And so of course I immediately fat fingered the spelling of Tuan into Taun - and was too lazy to fix it.. and so I've been Taun ever since on every board/site I go to...

That's too funny! Speaking of Dark Ages... I'm on dial up, Internet Explorer 6, to boot! I've got two newer computers, but this one feels like an old pair of shoes.

i was between 16 and 19. i woke up in the middle of the night because i had a dream and i had to remember these 2 words for some reason. "semorgus gentai." even though i dont remember anything about the dream i had other than me having to or wanting to remember those words. i wrote them down on a paper with a list of gifts for my girlfriend for christmas because it was the closest thing to me without me getting out of bed. i went back to sleep. i woke up in the morning, looked at those words, and have wondered ever since. im now 36. what do they mean and in what language? are they even the same language or 2 different ones? these words mean something to me but i dont know what. so at 21 i got a tatoo of them. its my only tat. i figured id just use gentai because it sounds nice. like gentle. semorgus sounds like the morgue. ive tried asking people. even looked on the computer only to learn that i am dumb and have no luck. i thought, once, i did see in some asian language i thought it said gentai means decay or to decay. i have not seen any semorgus definition. if any one could ever help me i would be eternally grateful.

I think it means "tiny genitals" in Ancient Greek....good luck with that tatt!!! ;) :P


As for me...I just liked this commercial is all - especially the plumber LOL:

Nice story Taun, I do like consistency with Handles. I do not know why people use different handles for different websites (aside from it being taken!). Pick something unique and stick with it, you will be amazed when you bump into some elsewhere on the web and recognise their handle. :)

I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to show me where the hell Helen of Annoy has been for the past couple of months.

I also use the same Avatar (except on one milblog I rarely comment on) - I'm a huge Rocky and Bullwinkle fan and the odd red color easily catches my eye as I scroll through pages of postings to find my last one...

The Flintstones. The alien known as "The Great Gazoo!". I just put a K because I like it better.

   For some reason everyone who liked the Flintstones hated him. I thought he was an amusing character....
