over ezboard and various other forums I posted on, my name was always a variation of Juice/The Juice/Juce (dropped the i at one point to feel all unique and stuff), an old moniker that has followed me through high school and efedding. but when I joined up here, I wanted something different and just totally random. I had the TV on and it was randomly on the Disney Channel with Lizzie McGuire on (randomly, riiiiiiiiight). The episode was entitled "Grubby Long John's", where Lizzie and pals visit a western-style theme park. so, yep, I ran with it.
it's silly, but at least it was somthing different from my usual board name variations. I've though about other variations of the name though, "GLJ", "Grub 'Longy' Johns", "LongyJohn" (OKAAAAAAAAY!), or simply "Grubby" because it'd be easier for the people to chant.
LAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAME! I know. quite.

I love Calvin & Hobbes. I signed up on a Star Wars board way back when, and decided I wanted something "spacey" that wasn't Star Wars-related, so I went w/ this name. I've just carried it over to other boards I've signed up at, including (obviously) this one.
I'm a big fan of the Ender Wiggin series of books by Orson Scott Card (beginning with "Ender's Game". There was already an Ender here, so I went with his brother, who beat him up as a child but went on to become the Hegemon Of Earth (Ender's own story goes on for a couple thousand years after that, so that wasn't much of a spoiler).
Oddly enough, like Peter (well, his replica, created thousands of years later), I ended up falling in love with a Chinese woman, well after I chose the name.
Well mine came from a odd moment at Carls Junior. Me and a few other people, involved with a Cable Access show, were eating and sitting around. Someone asked me if I could play any part what would it be, I said Iago. The girl that was there looked me dead in and face and asked, "Why the f*ck would you want to be a parrot?"
Well it's sorta been my messageboard name ever since.
It was my CB handle, and was a bad joke at the time. I was using a variation of my initials and didn't have the guts to hook up with a certain trucker gal with a hot voice, she implied that I wasn't old enough to follow through with the playful banter. Instead of explaining I was happily involved at the time, I told her she was too late, I am too-old-now. At the time, my then young daughter had just called me the same thing when I offered to play with her barbie dolls in the play tent (as if I could have squeezed my oversized butt in with her). So, I changed my CB handle and kept it as a username for years, including when I was younger using chatrooms back in the bulletin board days.
I have the same name as someone who is an internet "wrestling reporter" and I didn't want to be confused with him.
"Handsome Eddie Famous" would be the name I'd use if I were a wrestling manager.

Bob C is the nickname of an AWFUL basketball color commentator in Quebec (Robert Comeau aka Bob C). His catchphrase is «Tiens mon copain!» (take that, buddy!). I didn't know what to use so I went with that.
That was attempt #2. I got 111 and a few errors the first time. Reading five words ahead of what I was typing helped. So did completely ignoring the feedback - sometimes it flashes red even when you haven't done anything wrong?
