    Nov 4, 1998
    I was a young girl who had just discovered the internet and thought I was clever. Real name is Johanna, and Anne is of course a version of it. It should be pronounced like Obi-Wan without the W, but I'm used to everyone calling me Anne with an English pronunciation by now.

    I named myself after two awesome men, so as to make sure that it was clear to everyone that I was a dude.

    Once upon a time there was a magical sentient ham sandwich who came to me in a dream. "Be not afraid," said the ham sandwich, "For thou wilt go to a Star Wars message board and register under the name darthramza."

    Alternatively, Final Fantasy Tactics is a pretty cool game.

    I never spend more than five seconds making a username. The person makes the name, not the other way around. I don't usually use the same username more than once, I just go with whatever is in my head atm, whatever amuses me, if only for a moment.

    So I was looking at this:

    while listening to this:

    I was like "ha, that could be a Clone Trooper identification number" and thus CT-867-5309 was born.

    "Was" can be used in the past tense to describe a previous action that you have done. Such as:
    "You is going online to post things." - This would be the present tense.
    "You was going online to post things." - This would be the past tense.

    I used to work as a gate agent for an airline. One night I was checking the schedule for the flights I would be working and read:

    Morgan Solo 34

    The scheduler wanted to note I (Morgan) was working flight 34 by myself (or solo). My coworker called me Han's brother for the rest of the week.

    For me it was being unoriginal and using a nickname from my Navy days. My fellow shipmates used to call me "Darth" because I like Star Wars and scifi in general. Kat is short for my real name, Katina.
