What's in a name??
Urbandictionary gave me this...well there were like 3 pages I just took the first one they gave.

1. alyssa

the kind of girl who still manages to find a way to smile; the one that you'll see walking down the hallway, having her head up high, trying just one last time; the kind of girl that will get back up, each and everytime she falls... the kind of girl who NEVER gives up.

Re: What's in a name??
A bit like Elliot Reid, then?

Good to see you at EvC, Alyssa (I'm assuming from the name and face that you are the same Alyssa from the 'other place').

I hope you enjoy it here (no Rob) :).

Re: What's in a name??
Yes Larni I am from the 'other place.' I guess you could say I'm a bit like Elliot. I like her picture, she's pretty and my favorite actress from 'Scrubs'

Venus Bluegenes
Bluegene is an IBM supercomputer, apparently.

Blue Genes is a shop selling jeans. http://shopbluegenes.com/

Venus Bluegenes is this superheroine http://www.internationalhero.co.uk/b/bluegene.htm

I'd never heard of her, but she could make an appropriate avatar, as she's obviously confrontational and well armed. :)

Here she is, attacking random creationists with guns blazing.

She's even got a wiki page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Venus_Bluegenes

The Wounded King is a character from Arthurian legend. No urban dictionary entry but there is a wiki page.

A little history
Ostrogothic King who conquered Italy and Visigoths around the year 500 CE. Tradition has him as the one to put the final nail into the western Roman Empire.

Re: positioned for the future
I always think of you as RAZZ--a Brit (or Aussie) version of a Bronx Cheer. Wonder why? :-)

Now every time I read one of your posts I will think of Robin Williams crying.
