(my poor brain needs more clues!)
I was just going to add "random" keystrokes to fred until I had a unique identifier. So, ages ago when creating an email account at AOL (remember how they sent you CDs every other week!) I wanted to be fred@aol.com, but it was taken. So, I just hit another key - obviously a 7 - that too was taken. Following the 7 with a t did the trick. Then, after the passing of a few more ages, I was registering at pogo.com (games). Apparently there was a fred7t already there, so not wanting to really change I changed 7 to seven. Since then, I usually use fredsevent for gaming sites.

ohhhhhhhhh, gotcha---thanks for your patient response, fred. and i DO remember those aol cds that were everywhere--some came in nice tins--i think i still have some of those around.
and there's a "whole 'nother topic"--things we save for no apparent reason...or things we save because we like 'em, but would never be able to support a valid reason for hanging on to them. my daughters think its sad that i have a boat-load (like how i cleaned that up?!) of stuff like that, but my grandkids think its cool.

Mine's fairly obvious: "Guitar-zan... he's a guitar-man" (Ray Stevens)

I had GTRZAN as a license plate for about a decade, kept having people ask me what Gator-zan was (?)

Ah well

oh--well, it just seemed so obvious (to me, anyway!)--sorry 'bout that.
born & raised in wv--but lived most of my adult life in phoenix, so i was "azwoman" there--when i moved back here to be with my mom, i changed to wvwoman. now, i'm doing my best to get my s**t together & move back to az, as that's where one daughter & all the grandchildren are. it's just so darned complicated for several reasons. but i've decided to remain wvwoman when i go--these hills will always be 'home' in my heart.

No WAY...can this be true??? (I actually said this aloud in an amazed and envious tone!) Barnabas, please confirm!!

Speaking of Barnabas...I want to give him a "tip of the hat" for helping me to discover what a wonderful community of solvers you all are. Until recently, I was like what Lurker described - just here for the puzzles, nothing more. The most I would do was leave a comment after I'd solved a quote. Then a few weeks ago, to my amazement, I saw that I had a Message! It was from Barnabas, responding to a rather thoughtless comment I had posted about one of the quotes. In corresponding about this post, I became curious and started poking around the threads...I learned of pootie's death...I saw how helpful and supportive you all are, and I was impressed and moved. So, to Barnabas the self-deprecating mortician - and how many of us gasped in delight when we read that post - thank you, I'm very grateful to you.

My name comes from the urge I have of doing the opposite of what someone tells me do to. I try to avoid acting on those urges when it isn't useful but I let a reaction slip out every once in a while.

Well, I've never been to Spain, but I've been to Oklahoma.
... oh, ummm, and I've never been to Italy. Glad to hear my counterpart helped make your trip even more enjoyable than it already must have been.
