Wazza = A common nickname for Warren.
First time I was called it, was back in 1998 by a girl, and then with my association with 666 (Born 6th June, 6:06pm, room 6 at the hospital), became my base email address... wazza6_6_6@ hot....

I don't quite look like a rabbit though.

My husband once called me Queen Bee when he thought I was being a little bossy and I decided to use it, the 288 is because 287 people already had it the first time I tried to use it on the internet. I got tired of trying to keep up with different names so I just started using it for everything.

Mine is the most boring story of all. RbnDave was the first alternate suggested to me when I signed up for a hotmail account years ago. Someone had already taken my full name DavidRaboin. I stick with the Rbndave for everything I do on the net because I think there is something cool about the blandness of a name assigned by microsoft n 1999. It's my lack of fasion that is the statement.

No biggie with mine. I'd used it in another forum years ago & it was easy to remember. It seems pretentious here, but I only have so many brain cells left... what was the question again?

So i sit down and they tell me that i had to come up with a name. "Tim" was already taken. So then i decided to get creative. I thought of my family, john my brother popped into my head. Then i went off into a tangent about the game johnny quest that came with my dads new amazing computer, it was a whole 350mhz!

Then it struck me. Timmyquest...

I then started using it everywhere, for everything, next thing i know there are people who frequented similer types of message boards that i did. It started out with paintball message boards.

Then some of the guys i saw on the paintball message boards, i saw on the computer message boards. I didnt want to change my name because i wanted people to remember that i was the guy who was asking about the new paintball gun.

Next thing i know, i'm 19 years old and i've had the same name for this entire time.

You may think having this name for so long represents my desire to still be a kid. Thats simply not the truth, it's simply because i dont want to deal with changing it in so many places.

By the way, i still play paintball to feel like a kid every once and a while
Just what I thought. Whenever I see your name I think to myself. "Timmy is on a quest"!

Way back there in 1987, after my Dad dared me, I joined the Army. After completeing basic training where I was mainly called, ' Oi ', as was everybody else, I was posted to Germany whereupon I graduated to Smudge, as did evrybody else called Smith. Luckily there was only one other Smudge in my troop, so he was Smudge and I was Junior. He left some years later, and I became the senior Smudge and layed full claim to the title. Several ' Juniors ' were forced to fight it out when I left.

Mine too came about back in the days when everything cool was taken and AOL was first starting up. I tried Wolf, that came back as Wolf37865423 or something like it, then in a flash while I was lighting a smoke, using my TURBO disposable lighter ... well, 'nuff said
