    droidekas, or destroyer droids, were just the most amazing droid I had ever seen... and the name droideka, sounded so cool, and was starwars, but subtly starwars.

    One day, when creating a new email account i came up with using droideka, and ever since , that's been my sn. The 27 used to be my favorite number. droideka was already taken at the JC, so i used the 27, too. :)

    i got my in honor of qui-gon, i chose zhi-don because don is my name and i wanted an interesting prefix. zhi sounded similar to qui and there you go. aquintas is similar to the name of the creature from the movie the faceless man. dont worry if you dont know it, because it was a B movie. about a statue that contained a living person from pompeii. he could move a somehow knew what was going on around him but after they dug him up he still thought he was in ancient rome. his name was quintilis arelias. i chose aquintas because it sounded somehow close to quintillis.

    Mine started as a character name from the RPG "Rifts". It started as JediJoe. That seemed a little simplistic to use anywhere else (it was thought up on the fly by some of my friends since I was so into Star Wars and the character had a lightsaber). I decided I needed something a little different for the boards and elsewhere so I changed it to LordJedi. I've been using that for about 3-4 years now.

    I liked Qui-Gon Jinn in Episdode 1 -- he was the Jedi I would aspire to be (and I'm almost as ancient.... *cough, cough, wheeze*)

    I saw a brand of sunglasses called Maui Jim, and since the island of Kaui is a place I want to visit someday (I've been to the other islands, but not Kaui), it all just popped into my head.

    Theatrix -

    (Kinda of Cross between Theater and Tricks (trix))

    I used to do a lot of work in Theatre and Film building sets, props and costumes. Theatrix was informal "company name" and e-mail address I used from the first days I got on-line (first on various BBS systems and then the web).

    I don't even know if I can post this without getting banned, but here goes: I skipped out of a night of clubbing with my girlfriend, since I had to work early the next morning. I found out she made out with another girl that night!!!!! Instead of getting mad, though, I asked when she might be meeting this girl again, if you know what I mean...She told me she didn't think this sort of thing interested me, but I told her it DEFINITELY would. She called me a "Male Lesbian", and the nickname was born.
