OK, ill start


Year: 2001
Age: 17
Scene:

So, i was on my way to a party that my next door neighbor invited me to with another mate of his and at the time i was only 17.
Bare in mind my next door neightbour was 25 at the time and we had known each other all our lives so age wasnt a concern.
It was however brought up that it wouldnt be wise that i mention i was only 17, plus if i wanted a chance with any of the older women 17 pretty much wouldnt cut it.

Matt (my neighbor) suggested we come up with a new age for me, 25 seemed realistic (i was quite tall and came across as relatively mature) but this wasnt enough.
His mate in the car at the time chimed in saying "yea, and he works with you at IBM on a telstra project"
well........this kicked of a series of ideas on backstories so that if i were to get questioned that i knew my shit.
At the time i was already running LAN gaming events so i knew my networking, computers ect ect so all good there with the "work stuff" but then it came around to the personal stuff

Name......my neighbour thinking this would be hilarious said "your name is Beaver", his mate (wanting to be part of this now hilarious facade) chimed in and said "Beaver Sinclair and your mums a porn star".........
well......the name sticked.......a little too well.

we went to the party and Matt/Nate were like kids with a new toy. i was getting dragged from group to group just so they could introduce me as "beaver sainclaire" and then proceed to wisper to the person "and his mums a porn star"
HILARIOUS NIGHT.

BUT...........

it didnt end there, there was a group of guys there whom i still have as mates, some 11 years later whom for about 5 years has 0 idea my name was not in fact Beaver and my mum was not a porn star.
my old man called me beaver, all my other mates (whom were not even in this group of friends) called me beaver and well......it stuck.

on comes my 21st birthday party......now i couldnt tell my mates (whom didnt know) that my name wasnt beaver now could i?
it wasn't hard to keep up the facade as most of the family after 3 years called me beaver too and my best mate, next door neighbor and dad all whom did speeches were going to call me beaver any way......

The invites went out to this group of friends with "beaver saincalire's 21st" on them and i pretty much pulled off a 21st part with them not knowing :)

did it end there? no

At the 21st, in true form of making shit up my neighbour basically made an entire story up about how my car got a dint in the back panel (someone kicked it in) instead he told my ENTIRE FAMILY how i flipped out and headbutted the back of the car panel in a fit of rage.
*sigh* i had to run with the story i suppose.

so, 5 years after "that night i was deemed beaver sainclaire" i was in the line to a club called robata and obviously the bouncers were checking id's (yes up untill this point my mates still didnt know and still didnt chime in).
I pulle dout my id and one of my mates "G" (Gerhard) said "your name isnt Brett, its beaver Sainclaire"..........
WELL, the jig was up, i had to confess the bouncer i was in fact Brett and take my mates to the side and come clean

to say that it was hilarious was an understatement. they were pretty much kissing the ground i walked on for being able to lie to them for 5 years about my name and what i did for a living.
even after coming clean about my name they still had to ask "is your mum a porn star", i said no.....they were disappointed about this but still in hysterics.

After that we got some tshirts made for all the people i knew after letting them know.

- Who is Beaver Sainclaire
- I lived next door to Beaver Sainclaire
- I knew the guy whom lived next door to Beaver Sainclaire
- I'm dating the guy whom knew the guy whom lived next door to Beaver Saincalire

shirts like that.

anyway, thats my story :)
my next door neighbour now calls me "Captain Beaver Bilko Sainclaire" as im a dive instructor (no logic there but yea :) )

Whats yours?

Great story Beaver, made me PMSL :)

Ill go back through my name

I left school at 16 in the Uk. I took a job as an apprentice Aircraft Fitter at British Aerospace in a site that had 6500 people. It was more like a mini city than factory.

I worked with 50 other apprentices in the training centre. As it is with young un's many of us end up with nicknames that have lasted for life. Some of the names were such as Wiggy (step in his hair), Blockhead (a guy who's head was shaped like a brick), Speb (a name for a spider), Hairstyle (a lad with a big Buffon), Wingnut (rather large ears) etc Anyway one of the lads made a throwaway comment that I looked like the dog off of Hector's House (kids animation, look at google images to see it) this then stuck until I left BAe at 34. By this time I was one of the sites senior Bosses and everywhere I walked all I ever heard was people shouting 'Hector'.

Even now at 48, I have connected to old friends in the UK on Facebook and I am still called Hector, we even called one of our dogs Hector.

It will be great to see where's others user id's have come from?

Mines pretty boring. In 2003 I went back to the states to spend some time with my mum and after a few days there we went out and picked up a new Rottweiler puppy and named him Shooter, he was my pal. Even at 40kgs he thought he was a lap dog:D
Anyway I came back to Australia and he's still there with my mum. That's how I got shooter03.


Tap'n Like A Boss on my 5 while grilling on my Weber!

Brumby33 was the very first email address user name I ever used since I joined this cyber world back in the days of dial-up intenet.
My first account was on Yahoo and I tried it on hotmail as well but I stuff it up and had 34 instead....now I got back my brumby33 on hotmail back again...whooppeeee!!

I wanted something uniquely Australian and my Sister had a horse so I chose brumby and 33 has always been a lucky number for me as it was the number of the house I grew up in.

I couldn't chose Davo here coz theres another here who beat me to the post...so I went with brumby33

My user name on my fave motorcycle forums is wobbly_boot....i'll let you guys guess why this might be :mrgreen:

Cheers

brumby33

Many many years ago I knew a bloke who used to describe something he didn't know as a Yellow bellied double crested poo tang yakabot. I just kept the yakabot part. Have other usernames at older sites, (from back in dial-up days)(shudders) but mainly use yakabot or sometimes just yak when joining anywhere now.

Posted with Tapatalk, so excuse the spelling mistakes.
