The I rule backwards came from a post it that was left on my desk, with a hand drawn picture of strong bad telling me that he rules, when I was trying to come up with a new name.
I think it sounds neat, albeit a bit feminine now that I have had time to reflect on it.
Who five years later became this character (who was renamed):
Strife doesn't actually come from Cloud Strife, but Elly Strife, a character from a flash cartoon called Bonus Stage. So (s)he's named after Cloud only by proxy.

We almost made it.
The all-american classic that became my delivery room was a Buick Skyhawk.
Fine machine. They stopped making them in 1989- that is to say, well before I had any conception of what it meant to me. Anyway, whenever I actually was told this story, it was early enough in my life that it began a longtime fascination with hawks and all birds of prey in general.
My favorite is the Red-tailed Hawk, that's
They are remarkable creatures. One of the only other species to demonstrate what we conceive of as "love." They're typically monogamous and may stay with their mates for their entire lives, sometimes fighting and even dying to protect one another. They are the best hunters for falconry, as well. Basically friendly (as far as birds that can pretty much kill you if they feel like it go), and diving, they can hit 130mph, a speed exceeded only by their also totally awesome relative the Peregrine Falcon, the fastest animal on earth.
Anyway... that's the story of how I was born.
Er. And my username.
Behold its tiny wonder
I was trying to think of a gamertag for Xbox Live, as this was Christmas day.
I thought for a long time...My initials are G.W., and some of my friends call me "GeeDuhb." I though "wow, that is unique and sounds cool." I fooled around with the spelling for a while (I wanted something spelled phonetically, so little 12 year olds on Live would have less of a chance of botching it) and came up with this one. I then changed my XBL gamertag to it, and when I got my PS3, I made that my PSN nick.
So hi, I'm GeeDuhb. :D

Yeah, but most people these days, especially where I live, seem to know the name more by the cheese fries.
