My name started as "ineedcrayons," from Alma Jr.'s line in BBM, which I think summarizes the movie's themes -- we all need crayons/color/joy/hapiness in our lives.

One year, for Heath's birthday, we changed our usernames to lines from Heath's movies. I chose "Whysoserious?"

Afterward, I combined the two, because I think they go well together. The pairing is sort of paradoxical, but it underlines the abovementioned theme.

To find my avatar, I always just look up "serious crayons" on google images and pick one I like. Once, for example, I had a crayon drawing of a BBM-like mountain scene. I particularly like my current one because, as I mentioned on the Halloween-costume thread, it's a picture made out of crayons. I don't mean a crayon drawing, but a photo of actual crayons.

The name Buffymon predates my time here on Bettermost. It must have been back in 2002 or 2003 that I really got into Buffy the Vampire (the tv-series) and I registered on a Buffy forum. I just picked the first thing that came to mind - Buffy + Mon (the first three letters of my name) = Buffymon. Who could have guessed that seven years later I was still gonna go under that name! If someone called out Buffymon in the street, I would definately respond. Except for my facebook site, I always use the same name.

My avatars change regulary. Right now I have one of Jack from the Dozy Embrace scene. That scene has always had a special place in my heart because the way Jack feels when he watches Ennis ride off...I can really feel it and itīs almost as if I am there. I can feel the warmth from the fire, hear the wind through the threes.

I donīt have a sig line simply because I didnīt feel I had anything more to say at the moment.

Mine is pretty obvious. David is my first name and "Indy" is a nickname for Indianapolis - the city I live in. The actor Ian Somerhalder appears in my avatar....




"You've got male" is a play on words basically, of the famous AOL sign-on greeting "You've Got Mail". And of course it's directed at Ian. ;)

The dogs and cats at the bottom don't really mean anything. I just thought they were kind of cute. And I love dogs and cats, I guess. 8)
Dogs have owners. Cats have staff.

RouxB is the name of my car. It is red (ruby) but I wanted something more gender neutral. The enja part is short for ennis and jack.

Everything else changes. Did you fall for a shooting star is from one of my favorite songs, Drops of Jupiter, which is my Brokeback Mountain experience theme song. I incorporated the shooting stars in my Heath memorial tattoo. Heath and Jake are my stars and Heath I fell for hard hard hard.

I picked Penthesilea for IMDB, because I didn't want a name with an add-on, like numbers or whatever. So I wanted a rare name that was still free. Penthesilea even predates my BBM experience.
Penthesilea was the queen of the Amazons. It was also the nickname of a character in the British TV series Cracker.


My avatar has been Ennis from the beginning on. I'm an Ennis girl, can't help it. I had the same pic for more than four years. Two days ago I decided to take a variation of the pic for my avatar. I'm so spontaneous :laugh:.

My sigline is Heath because I'm a Heathen; and the horses remind me of Rich. I chose it last summer. After picking a new avatar, I think it's also time for a new signature.

I would like to be able say my ID came from something really cool! Like I was inspired by this, or from my favorite author or something. Unfortunately saying something like that would be lying. Instead my names have just been things in the moment that have come to my head.
