    My surname is 'Mahmood' and when playing football in the school playground, they called me Moody.

    It's stuck with me into adulthood. I'm not grumpy, honest.

    The model number and date stamped on my Sturmey Archer 3 Speed Fixed Hub. Some day I shall get it on a bike instead of leaning against the wall.

    We saw Chicago at the theatre and my daughter said that that was my song as no one takes any notice of me at home. It also seemed appropriate for an anonymous user name, because you could walk right by me and never know I'm there

    Come to think of it, why do we all have pseudonyms on forums? Even on specialist forums when we might know many of the other people?

    Mind you, my mate Dave uses Facebook under an assumed name; then wonders why he is still Billy No Mates.

    I can't remember how I came up with mine... in the old days of C+, but I love summer time so probably something to do with that.

    As to why we use them I feel freer to say things with my CC name than I would with my real name - slightly shy by nature. I'm on facebook but with my real name and I hardly ever say anything on there.

    It's the diameter of the wheels on my Dahon folder.

    However, judging by the amount of people who think I am making some sort of statement about my manhood with my username, there's a lot of folder-envy on this forum.

    I used to kayak, and i was hopelesss at it. I was even worse at rolling back up, hence the name.
     
  12. about 10 years ago, I worked in an office with 5 Johns...so we all had unique identifiers to our names to avoid confusion. As my surname starts with G, mine was Jonny G...Not sure where the Jonny came from, I'm not a fan myself (too "Septic-Tank" for me)

    Whenever i am frustrated by the fickleness of life, My stock retort tends to be "Jesu.... or Jeez"...so am now Jonny "Jeez" to a few of my friends.

    One of my oldest friend calls me Jonny-Bored. When spoken (not spelt out) other people assume I am a skate/surfing/ironing fan or something similar but they are wrong....its a whole different story.
