Felt really lost and my son was watching the movie Lost in Space and it just fit.
Now I would definitely pick something that included "Badass.".

When I confronted I told him that he would never find what he was searching for in OW. That I was the best thing that ever came into his life and the path he was going down would lead to him being alone.
That what he was searching for was already standing in front of him at the time (me) and that I was 1000% The Real Deal and genuine.
Me: 45, him: 54

I wanted whattodo, but apparently did know what to do, so it came out as whattodo.

I had two earlier screen names rejected and this just popped into my mind because I accepted a lot of pain in various areas since moving to Georgia and this just topped the list.

When dday happened, suddenly things made sense. Things I had been struggling to understand for ages, trying to figure out why this and where'd that come from and what's that about.
The pieces fell into place and it was a moment of "huh - well, now I know." The 23 has to do with my birthday.

Mine is part of the name of the river we honeymooned at and spent a lot of romantic time both dating and married. The Tred Avon river is on the eastern shore of Maryland.

I wanted something other than my usual username versions, so went with a diving term as it is a hobby (although geez have not gone forever and have never used a rebreather, lol). I was further out from dday when I found SI, so "rebreather" made me think of how I was now able to kind of take a deep breath, and sustain myself with it.

little turtle describes how I felt when I found SI. small and slow moving. I knew the road I was facing was going to be a long one.

SI ate the first two I used and wouldn't let me register the SN or use the same email so I just kind of floundered around and typed in "IAmStillGoingHere" but cut that back. One of the first two I tried was SevenDays, don't remember the other.

I was so mad that I had to join SI and I didn't want to be here that when it asked me for my name I pulled an attitude and just wrote Myname.
I really like my name now. It sometimes feels like an Abbot and Costello routine. Oh, and I like being here with you people.

Husband of 17 years had a pregnant gf while I was clueless!
Then he walked out and never looked back. My kids haven't seen him in two years. He walked out on Father's day of all days...

It was the first name I ever used online, about 100 years ago. I wanted something anonymous but that was still connected to my real first name. Mickey is often used as a nick name by people who have my first name and even though I never used it I thought Mickey Mouse would be a good user name. It was already taken as was Minnie Mouse. Somehow "Minnie" became "meanie" (think Minnie with a phony French accent) and you have meaniemouse.

Once a long time ago, when I worked at a former job, someone emailed me asking if my company had logoed ties for sale. We were an industrial parts resale company, and for the life of me, I could not figure out why someone would want a tie with our incredibly unknown and boring logo on it.
The domain name of the emailer was stroppywanadoo. I always found great amusement in it, and it was something I could remember. Sometimes I am sorry I took this fun name and assigned it to a sad situation, but in the end, everything turned out just fine. We survived... and thrived!

Long story for a full explanation. No previous user names allowed, had to be something non pathetic or I knew I would stop logging in, had to be something I could personally relate to (genealogy), found a folklore reference to one of the norse gods having a cheating wife as well...
Now it helps to announce to everyone my godlike qualities, namely that I am arrogant, vain, petty, and vindictive.
Your mileage may vary... in accordance with the prophecy.

In the series "The Dark Tower", the main character is on a quest for a tower, where at the top, it will give him all the answers of the universe, all the answers to himself, and save the destruction of the fabric that holds everything together.
At the end, he reaches his destination, his tower, but finds a door marked "unfound" that he must go through in order to enter. He must lay down all that he has, all that defines him and all he holds dear at the door way. Then the door changes to "found" and allows him to enter.
Once he enters, each level of the tower is a memory of his life, his quest, a time, a place, that he must witness, relive and come to peace (or understanding) with.
When he reaches the top though, it's revealed that he's forgotten something...something seemingly insignificant at the time, but imperative to his journey, and he is sent back to the beginning to relive, re-seek and realize that he may have been on this journey a thousand times over, and may well repeat it a thousand times again until he finally gets it right.
I could kind of relate.

From time to time, I do consider that I might be mad. Like any self-respecting lunatic, however, I am always quick to dismiss any doubts about my sanity. DK
