Today I like to use "Hannibal" after the character that George Peppard played in the 80's television series "The A-team." I always liked Hannibal's signature catchphrase, "I love it when a plan comes together."

At one point I attempted to merge the name 'Hannibal' and 'Animal' (drummer from the muppets) to form "Hannimal" but have mostly stuck with Hannibal (because quite frankly, Animal is a much better drummer than I.)

Of course, these are only some of the things that I've been called in life. I'm sure some of them are far worse. haha.

And here for some reason I thought it had something to do with Hannibal, MO. I don't know why, its just the first thing that came to mind. I guess maybe the whole Mark Twain thing.

A-Team, eh? Anybody remember that Mr T guy from that show? He had a peculiar way of doing gardening. One day he got nervous and got a chainsaw and chopped down all the trees in his yard. He was crazy like that. So now I subscribe to the Mr T gardening philosophy, if in doubt, "Chop it down! Chop it down!"

I like the ORIGINAL Hannibal anyways. He was way cooler. Not like the movie.


If I didn't know him at all, I would find it odd that a vegetarian would name himself after a cannibal, lol.

My point exactly...but knowing his humorous style, I dont think it would surprise me at all.

I got the name "Gungawoman" from a friend of my younger sister back in High school--waaaayyyy back! Everyone thought I was tough and strong. The name stuck decades later. Those who know me know that I'm really a softy and Gungawoman is really my alter ego.

If I'd known you were French, I'd have worn galoshes...

Aside from being a fan of certain musical groups, I am a fan of the Whedonverse. I chose a name that was a bad pun in a Season 7 episode of Buffy.

By the way, I forgot to mention when I did introduce myself, that I am from Oregon, in the Willamette Valley.

Anyway, just curious as to how everyone came up with their online names. I'll go first. Mine is sort of from my husband. When we were seriously dating (about 2 weeks after we started casually dating I guess), we started thinking of those "cutesy" names for each other. I came up with "Stud Muffin" for him (I know, it sounds really goofy now), and he decided that he needed to think of a bakery inspired name and came up with "Bagel Babe" and it's had variations. So "Bageleth" is more of a "King James" or "Shakespearean" version of Bagel. So, that's my story.

Bageleth-

Drumworks2002 is a composition of the drums I play and the year I retired from the United States Army.
