    I have feet so I walk around (wrap your brains around the complexity of that one!), and I have a lot of opinions about everything and place emphasis on things that are really important to me.

    I wanted an online identity to go by that wasn't my real name, so I came up with Miriette. I thought it sounded pretty, and now I actually like it more than my real name.

    And my avatar is me, or at least the flesh vessel I possessed so I could participate in internet forums without arousing suspicion.

    Castor was my gaming name for a long time. Technically it's from mythology but I learned mythology from video games so that's where I found it. Avatar because everything is funny to me. Even someone trying to insult me, I'll find entertaining for some reason. The only exception is sad stories about animals. Even the hint of an animal getting hurt and I go from smiling like an idiot to a puddle of tears

    This thread is great.

    My username is from when I was a kid. My name is Jen and my cousin used to call me dingaling before we knew that could refer to a particular body part so the nickname got shortened to Jenaling. My official title, Captain Ding Dong McGoo, is from @ElleWoods@ElleWoods :love: who was the first MTC person to know the story behind my username. So beware. She'll give you a nickname even sillier than your previous silly nickname.

    The grumble grumble in my avatar is because I'm such a sweet upbeat kinda gal. And the gif part changes randomly when I think of it.

    If I had to guess I'd say my first name (back in the day) was bleh, so I shortened it. Oh, and, I like the geo thing because I like earth/nature. I'm not granola extra crunchy, but def. a tad crunchy. You could prolly say I'm a nerd and tree hugger (if you were rude + into name calling). :bookworm:
