xine- is my zinester moniker, and a nickname bestowed to me freshman year of college when everyone was doing the x-lalalala something or the other.

Mine: Odness, I guess. But I'll tell the full story (be warned! But I'll mark it so you can skip, if you like)

In junior high, we had a strange history project when learning about the American south-west: Make a cattle brand. I reshaped my initials somewhat. I tend to think about things too much, and before the end of my eighth grade year, I had reconsidered my initials into the current configuration of my user name. I've stuck with that ever since.
///drudgery over///

So it's my initials (EAS III <== I'm a third D: ). "Tree" minus T is tree ... so uhhm ... yeah .... I 'squeeshed' it xD

Hey, everybody - mine is pretty simple, but I am a huge tea drinker (that I reaaally like to drink tea, not that I am severely overweight), and I love to knit. With children around, my "me" time is limited and my favorite thing to do is knit while sipping a piping hot cuppa. Interestingly, I've noticed that many of the women from my yarn shop also like to imbibe high quality teas and I have pointed them this way. THe two things seem to go together...

Space Samurai is an anime reference to Cowboy Bebop. They'd end every episode with the words, "See you Space Cowboy" on the bottom of the screen. Due to the particulars of one episode, they ended with "See you Space Samurai" instead. Something about it struck me as interesting, then it just became my standard screen name for everything.

I chose mine simply because it's one of my favorite spices. It's one of my favorites to use in baking/cooking as well as a favorite candle scent.

I am an avid homebrewer and adore a fine hoppy beer. Of course in addition to my pu-erh fixation!

..." chip off the old block"

My dad and I share given names which I will not disclose here since I hate it and Tomasini would surely start calling me it.

So, Chip has been my nickname since before my recollection.

I always like to pick grand names that can pull explicit images to mind. Rage Of Angels is more descriptive of an emotion similar to rage, which, being from heavenly angels, is an emotion so grand that it's impossible for humans to understand it (but fun to ponder).
Another name of mine is Storm of Swords. There aren't many things that can beat the terrifying image of swords blowing in the wind.

:arrow: Rage (Also, Rage of Angels shortened is just Rage, which is a cool nickname)
