Well, I got my nick from when I first started playin CS 1.6, I sucked really bad so I would change my name so people didnt recognize me :lol:

One day, I was playing and i saw someone with the name "P R I N G L E S"

So, I changed my name to "W A F F L E"

After a while being waffle, I got better and decided I needed a real identity, so I thought... about half a second later my name became "M U F F I N" and it hasnt changed since.

My very first handle was |{ r y s t a l because I thought Crystals were neat and I liked the name, not much story behind it lol.

Then through the years of CS and NS of harrassment of female gaming (ie: "You're a girl!? a/s/l?" :roll: or "Ew, you must be an ugly dyke!" :( ) I figured an ambiguous name would be proper.

Anyway, I'm studying to be a music major and I started playing all my instruments in Treble Clef (Saxophones, high brass). But now I've gotten a hold Bass Clef playing the lower register instruments (low brass). So I'm going from "Treble To Bass" My real name is Tu (I'm Vietnamese) So I figured I'd just use my real name as a homophone.

Another gem;

My roommate now uses Kevin Beacon, which I think is pure hilarity :D

Redundant Periwinkle Ketchup is indeed disgusting. Please remove it from any and all cafes. In a related note, where is that thread where me and.. Prime? Are exchanging increasingly long and complex acronyms?!

Ah, but see, Fade keeps his same avatar in Steam Friends as in the forum, thereby giving me the smallest inkling as to who he is. Delightful!
