It's my name.



The S and the F are the first initials of my middle and last names. I was using Amy SF as a user name on another website, and for lack of creativity the day I registered on VB, I decided to use it here, too.

J is the first letter of my first name (jamie) and "askin" is my last name minus the first letter. and then I guess he just added the 's' haha. not very interesting, i know.

A hooded claw is a Jen. Duh. Doesn't everyone know that?



Skylark is my middle name, although the username predates it becoming my middle name.

the hooded claw: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Per...he_Hooded_Claw



you'd maybe have to watch The Perils of Penelope Pitstop to fully get it, but i'm sure you catch the drift.



while i have no desire to tie up blonde women and relieve them of their cash, i did apparently lurk around somewhat menacingly while wearing a hoodie with the hood up while in college (i think i thought it made me stealthy and incognito, but i doubt it did, especially in the height of summer), and the nickname stuck.



and yep, i'm a jen. a jen of the jennifer or jenny persuasion.

Mine is from a Pat Benatar song (five points if you know which one). I like it.

Did you write the book of love, and do you have faith in God above,
If the Bible tells you so? Do you believe in rock Ân roll,
Can music save your mortal soul, And can you teach me how to dance real slow?

I picked it because when I joined I really wanted to go vegan.

So it's short for 'I so wish I could be vegan'



-- a bit out of date now!

I used to eat falafel a couple of times a week many years ago so my coworkers started calling me 'Mr. Falafel'.

I was going to pick the username "Mrs. Hobson with the robotic arm and the helicopter pants", but since it was already taken, I chose this one.

I didn't pick this name; my parents did back in the 70's.

My Grandpa used to call me Nickle when I was a little girl (he passed when I was 2) so when I use it it's like having a part of him always with me and 00 was my volley ball number in my high school glory days.

Poppy is my female Chihuahua's name, and she was the impetus for my going vegan back in 2005. So when I joined VB, I used her name.

"Jupiter" is because my son is named after the moons of Jupiter and "inka" is a diminitive form put onto the ends of words in the Slovak language. So, essentially, "Jupiterinka" means "Little Jupiter."
