    How did you come up with the username you use on this forum?

    I'll start.

    Curmudgeon: a bad-tempered or surly person, especially an older man.
    It's one of those backward names like calling a bald man "curly" or or a short man "stretch".​

    A very close friend I had years ago, before the web got started. I met him on a telephone meeting system.
    We met, he was married and bi too, we hit it off and met regularly for years until he had to move.
    It was part of his AOL handle when he got a computer and had AOL.

    My avatar pic is of a round White Castle hamburger. My mom and dad used to argue about if it was always square.
    Mom said square, dad said round, that at the first White Castle in Cincinnati,OH , the lady at the grill would
    roll the beef into a ball and smash it down on the grill.
    Apparently he was right.
    The picture is a close up of a picture in a White Castle restaurant near me of one of the first White Castle's in

    Mine was used as a sound representing graphic way many long years ago in the days before broadband. The best we had was local hubs hosted by individuals that were called a b.b.s. One of the ones I was a member used graphics to represent sounds lol thus Zarp. Now keep in mind all this was in the day when your internet speed was still measured in bytes not megabytes and my modem at the time was a 14.4k baud modem lol.

    Mine is bit shortening of word/name "Amit" = which means "which cannot be destroyed" and "Raja" which means "A King". It was a nick name I used to love to be called as. Those days I love to make name from different words. Though still being a kid, people use to ask me for a good unique name with meaning for their just born kids. Also, later on came to know that it also means "Ami" = "Me" and "Raj"="Kingdom".

    Though my real name is neither Amit or Raja.

    The profile picture kind of resemble what have felt from my early growing up years. A strong, dark & lonely person.

    I am an extrovert, but my all time enjoyment, is to just people watch. Always wondering where those people are headed, and what their lives are like. It is what that in mind, that I just like to sit by, watch life, sometime participate in it, but mostly just like to watch.

    When I started out on the internet I was big on playing chess online being new to the internet "rookie" seemed like a cool idea. The name was already taken in a lot of chess rooms so I added the house number to the end. This was back before Facebook and internet privacy being a big deal. Although it could also be because I didn't give considerations to such things as a young boy.

    When I was young, like a lot of young girls, I was a figure skater. One day I put on a kitty kat halloween costume and went skating, pretending to be a cat. All the adults thought it was hilarious ( I thought I was being artistic, lol ). I got called pussycat a lot for a while after that.
    Later - much later - I just thought "pussycat" sounded kind of sexy. Plus the claws thing.
