When new members sign up, I wonder what their usernames stand for. So I thought I'd go ahead and explain my name and why I chose it, and ask you all to do the same...

The word Pumpkin comes from The Nightmare Before Christmas character Jack Skellington who is known as The Pumpkin King. As well as my love of Halloween. http://www.disneyworldtrivia.com/forums/images/smilies/pumpkin.gif

The word Jack comes from, you guessed it, TNBC's Jack Skellington http://www.disneyworldtrivia.com/forums/images/smilies/skellington.gif, as well as Pirates of the Caribbean's Jack Sparrow http://www.disneyworldtrivia.com/forums/images/smilies/outfitted_pirate.gif (two of my favorite characters).

And the 81 comes from the year I was born, 1981.

Pumpkin + Jack + 81 = PumpkinJack81

So there you go! Your turn!! http://www.disneyworldtrivia.com/forums/images/smilies/animated_wave.gif

Think I covered this in my intro but I'll toss it in here too.

I'm also a car nut, and I drive a '95 LT1 powered Caprice. For those not in the know the LT1 is a 5.7 liter V8.

Hence LT1Caprice57L.

I probably should have been a bit more creative when I chose mine eh? My name is Emma, but when I started joining groups etc years ago, the name Emma was always taken (back when you could only have one of each name) and since my middle name is Kay, I would make up a combination of the two that wasn't already in use. Now it's just a habit. I make myself use my real name because I know when people use fake names, they can get too comfortable with their anonymity and start saying things they usually wouldn't say - I don't want to turn into one of those people, so this way, I will always know that if a friend of mine joined up (and I usually send links to groups I think are great to my friends), then they will know it's me and I have accountability for what I say. I wouldn't ever get abusive I should add, but you know how people can start to be, I'm sure you've all met at least one of them out there.

I think the reason it crosses those lines with both parties is it has Linus giving the true meaning (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DKk9rv2hUfA)of the holiday. Then you have the part that we addicted to christmas needs ans that the light, love, songs and merriment.

JERUSALEM ó A day after Israeli commandoes raided an aid flotilla seeking to breach the blockade of Gaza, Israel held hundreds of activists seized aboard the convoy on Tuesday as news reports said activists may be planning a fresh attempt to ferry supplies to the Hamas-run enclave.
At the same time, the Israeli military said troops clashed with two militants who infiltrated from Gaza, killing them both. While such occurrences are almost routine along the volatile border between Israel and Gaza, the incident underscored the tensions seizing the region after Mondayís confrontation at sea, which strained relations between Israel and the United States just as American-sponsored proximity talks involving Palestinians and Israelis were getting under way.
The developments in Israel and Gaza came hours after the United Nations Security Council condemned ďactsĒ leading to the loss of life in Israelís operation in international waters on Monday that claimed the lives of nine civilians, many of them Turks. In response, Turkey, once seen as Israelís most important friend in the Muslim world, recalled its ambassador and canceled planned military exercises with Israel as the countriesí already tense relations soured even further. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel was flying home after canceling a Tuesday meeting with President Obama.

Outside of the fact that I am much younger than him and probably spend more time at the gym-- I've always felt a kinship to that Character from "A Christmas Carol" We both love Christmas .. make it a point to get people into the spirit .. and hate seeing people have to work on the day,

I remember a couple years back I had to work on a Christmas Eve in a supermarket. The store was busy earlier in the day but in late afternoon it was empty. They said they were gonna send us home early but that never panned out. Eventually I just looked at the couple guys I was working with and said, " To heck with all this, lets go hide in the refrigerator and open up some eggnog." (A big walk in Refrigerator for the stores Milk, Eggs, Cheese, ETC -- the only place without cameras) We hung out in there, drank some eggnogg and talked about what 'Santa' was bringing out Children, Wives, Husbands, etc. Really it turned out to be a good time .. and I was out with more than enough time to have Xmas Eve dinner with the family.

I'm new to the forum, but I thought I'd chime in! While my username isn't all that remarkable, the 't' stands for my real first name, which is Tres (pronounced like 'trace'). Before you ask, yes, it's spelled exactly like the Spanish number 3, I *am* the third child, and my mom *does* speak Spanish, but that's not actually why I'm named that!

I'm named after my dad's good friend Trace. Growing up, my mom knew a boy whose name was Tres and pronounced like Trace, so they decided to name me after the friend but change up the spelling. I was supposed to be the oldest child in our immediate family, but shortly before I was born my two half-siblings' mother died and they came to live with us, making me the third child after the name had already been picked out!

Bishop1954

For my name, when my wife and I met, it was online. We first met in chat rooms and exchanges e-mails, but then got into a little game. Since her screen name and the time was QnConnie (Queen) I decided to start and ongoing saga with her as my Queen. I never really saw myself as a Knight, so I needed something else. Since one of my favorite X-Men characters was named Bishop and certainly that would have been a familiar title in the middle ages, I took that and so the tale of the Queen and Her Bishop began.
I have always enjoyed that name and added my birth year at the end ergo... Bishop1954
