Screen names and Avatars

Looking over the site, Some of people's screen names and why they chose them make perfect sense, Others do not. With Avitars, it is sometimes easy to understand why a person chose a certain avitar and sometimes one wonders the significance.

Anyway, I thought it might make an interesting thread, so here goes.

Adillo303 - I wotk at a company named Armadillo Services and it is at 303 Fifth Avenue in NYC. This also explains the avitar which is a hand drawing given to me along with my collection of varouus armadillos that I have recieved over time.

My avatar is a jalapeño pepper that my brother grew. I let it sit around the kitchen and it turned this great red color. I used that for a series of photos I took of the peppers sitting in snow in the winter. Here is a larger version.

When I worked in the real world, I spoke to our salesmen all over the country on the phone. You got to "know them after awhile. One used to always say "Suzie Quzie how are usie?" and I guess it sorta stuck in my head.

The pic changes time to time, not often, usually my kids.
