What does your screen name mean?
    #2444302 - 03/17/04 07:59 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

So whats the story behind everyone's screen names? 

Mine, well...my real name is Michelle, so I just sort of did a twisted/semi-backwards version of it, Ellemysh and then added Shade since I was going through a dark time in my life when I first joined the shroomery. 

How bout everyone else??  :stoned:

actually i dont know why i started to use this sceenname, it started on irc and now im shriek all over the place, if you see a shriek anywhere on the net its most likely to be me, so that is a good reason in itself to still use it, not met anyone that uses this screen name either.

temperance n.
1. Habitual moderation in regard to the indulgence of the natural appetites and passions; restrained or moderate indulgence; moderation; as, temperance in eating and drinking; temperance in the indulgence of joy or mirth; specifically, moderation


This is my username/screenname for a few reasons. The first is that the Temperance card in the tarot deck always stood out to me.

The second is that I read one time in a "new age" name interpretation book (after taking a deep interest in the Temperance card and using 'temperance' as a username elsewhere) that in Qabbalistic beliefs, the Temperance card is associated with the first name Nicole. That is my first name.

And the third is that moderation is something I very much strive toward and is and always has been an important symbol in my life.

Sorry for the life story :wink:

Mine's a fun play on words for the whole family to enjoy, based on a popular rap group's name (sugarhill gang), and a famous chemical (5-MeO-W)

I made up "trendal" 5 or 6 years ago to use as a character name in a MUD I used to play on. It's a word play on the word "trend". I wanted it to sound fantasyish :smirk:

You're here because you know something.
What you know you can't explain,
But you feel it;
You've felt it your entire life.
That there's something wrong with the world.
You don't know what it is, but it's there....
Like a splinter in your mind...
Driving you mad.
