    When I was in either 8th or 9th grade, I was in the town library setting up my very first e-mail account, and was struggling to think of a name. I started looking around and near me was a cart with books that needed to be put back on the shelves. One of the titles was Zathura, and I thought, "hey, that sounds pretty neat!"

    It was years before I actually saw the movie (nevermind reading the book) and realized it was just sci-fi themed Jumanji.

    Mine is fairly standard; the name of the first dog I had. Hence, katya_dog1.

    First initial combined with last name, respelled as one word. It's become sort of a nickname in its own right with the people I've met from this and other forums.

    Original name, back in 2001, was from my French-Canadian friend when I was making an account for him on another site, to try to get him to play. Turns out that name is apparently an inappropriate phrase. To this day I will sometimes log into that account and find upset messages from someone calling me out as "REAL mature" because of the account name.

    At some point a few years after that I pared it down to Est for ease and to prevent those kinds of interactions. haha Plus, having a first and last name that sum to 17 characters, a three letter name is pretty appealing.

    My avatar is Maxx a homeless man / "superhero" from The Maxx, a comic series from the '90s.

    I actually dont like my screen name, and wish I hadnt used it..but its too late now!

    20 years ago, 1995, I was 25 years old and in a band named "Johnny Chaos"..
    We played for 5 years, 1995 to 2000, all over Rochester NY.

    The internet came along during that time, I got my first computer, and started joining internet forums..
    I needed a screen name..my first name is Scot, im in a band named Johnny Chaos = scottychaos.
    I guess it thought it was mildly clever at the time, didnt think about it too deeply honestly!
    now..20 years later, im 45 years old, and I think its kind of lame and cheesy..but there it is!

    Its also forever intertwined into the url's of my webpages:
    Scot's Train Pages
    *sigh*

    Scot

    My profile is named after the marvel character, Curt Connors and my gecko Dr. Connors (also named after curt) to a lesser extent. Unfortunately, I messed it up and put Curtis instead of curt, but I don't mind. For those of you who don't know, Curt Connors became the lizard in Spider-Man.
    The profile pic that you see above is my actual photo. I am a hyper-intelligent snake that has learned to use the internet and I will eventually rule you all.

    Just kidding..... Or am I?
