Yes to all of the above. (And a guy dealing with the whole trans thing, to boot.) Holy crap what, don't tell me you're all of those other things too because that would be freaky. (Are you also an immigrant to the East Coast?)

I'm an east coaster, not an immigrant though- to be fair, the actual Ukranian-living-in-Ukraine parts of my family came over two generations back.

I tend to use different usernames wherever I go, so this one is F+/Ball Pit only. I was scrounging around for a name to add to my doc submission, and decided to use a minor ASOIAF character. I realized too late that people who watch Game of Thrones and Google my username might come across spoilers for future events, but, hey, their bad!

Boots, there's an Army surplus store a few blocks from me, and they must be run by your evil twin. There's a huge sign that reads "KNIVES RAINGEAR" in the window.

No, Knives Raingear became a villain because he can't grow a beard. So he takes the fight to Boots in order to steal his.

I'm just Chaz because that's an acceptable short form of my actual name. GELF is something of a nod to Red Dwarf, GELF stands for Genetically Engineered Life Form, and the fuzzy green character in my avatar over there is a genetically engineered lifeform from a comic I draw.

So there you have it, Chaz GELF. :v

GELF always makes me think of the Gelflings from the Dark Crystal. So I tend to picture you as a bright green one of those.

Because DeLIRiUM_dIRgE wasn't available as an AIM name when I was eleven.

Thank GOD.

Mine's dumb and boring, but here it goes.

In 1999, I was CRAZY into "The Matrix" and "Upright Citizens Brigade".  I liked Agent Smith a lot.  I also loved the series of sketches in which the UCB people were trying to somehow make their lair hip enough for the inexplicable critics who would barge in say that whatever they were doing was totally "monster cockog".

Also I didn't know how to spell, so when I made it the first time, I added the "ue" to the end, and I've never dropped it.

Also it's TOTALLY the name of my improv troupe in my brain.  I think we could go all the way this year at the improvolley.

Protagonist of Consider Phlebas and a pretty striking syllable combo in its own right.

<3 For some reason I always used to watch it every year with my sister at Thanksgiving with my sister. A lifelong love of Henson, Froud and weird, unconventional fantasy with heavy world-building has resulted.

King Kalamari was a brain fart of a character I came up with years agoe for a thing I was writing. He was a squid monster in a bowler hat who ran a seafood canning company. I never did anything with him but liked the name so I used it a few places online.

Psammetichus was the name of three rather unremarkable Egyptian pharaohs, Psammetichus I, Psammetichus II, and Psammetichus III, naturally, who ruled during the 26th Dynasty of Ancient Egypt, c.  672 to 525 BC.

I learned about Psammetichus from Herodotus, the Greek historian. Allegedly, Psammetichus tried an experiment to find if mankind had an "original" language:

The Greek historian Herodotus conveyed an anecdote about Psammetichus in the second volume of his Histories (2.2). During his travel to Egypt, Herodotus heard that Psammetichus sought to discover the origin of language by conducting an experiment with two children. Allegedly he gave two newborn babies to a shepherd, with the instructions that no one should speak to them, but that the shepherd should feed and care for them while listening to determine their first words. The hypothesis was that the first word would be uttered in the root language of all people. When one of the children cried bekos with outstretched arms the shepherd concluded that the word was Phrygian because that was the sound of the Phrygian word for bread. Thus, they concluded that the Phrygians were an older people than the Egyptians, and that Phrygian was the original language of men. There are no other extant sources to verify this story.

I would make some snarky comment about showing the rest of us rubes up if I didn't keep accidentally thinking of you as "Psammitch".

Sorry bro, them's the breaks.
