What's the story behind your username?





Well... it's this:

There were four of us: my brother, myself and neighbour's two girls, each of them a year older than my bro and myself. We spent most of our free time together, playing all sorts of games, from "doctors" to "school", from "cowboys and indians" to "spacegames", from "dolls" to "cars"... quite a complex childhood, isn't it? Enter Blake's Seven, one of the classical sci-fi series of the seventies. With four main characters in it. And me being the youngest of the bunch got to "play" the role of Cally... figures, doesn't it. LOL

Anyway... I had a name and a proper person needs a last name, too. Enter Bernardette Peters in who knows what movie. I only recall the fact I liked it and snatched her last name. It did not sound very European back then so I changed it to "paterson". And that name just got stuck to me ever since. I have used it over and over again and I still do. It's been around for so long, it's practically an essential part of me. So, it's not about some artist or some city, it's an original construction made by someone, who - at the time he "constructed" it - didn't even have a clue about all that. So, Paterson it is and Paterson it is going to stay.

Ok, paterson_si  - my LJ handle has SI for Slovenia added, so that's it. And another thing. I do spend a lot of time on various video chats, which can be a pretty....... colourful place, let me tell you. And the combination pater-son obviously tricked an unthinkable number of older gents (and I am putting that mildly) who thought they would totally cheer me up with flashing their most precious and private parts. They failed miserably.

Oh, well, life.....

Given the declarations of love it nearly felt like we were married. :)

Oh, I somehow don't feel married to you.

I think that marriage is supposed to involve some sex after all. Call me old-fashioned. :)

That's cool. I was wondering about your name. Mine is pretty self explanatory. (The "C" stands for "coast".)

:) I really don't want to get rid of that nickname. I was wondering about that "C". Now there's no need to keep on doing that.

I am using that paterson (or paterson245 or patersonsi or paterson_si or thepaterson) all over the net, just once - for some rather profane reasons - I changed and re-did and over-did my last name (Celestina) into Heaven and created a profile with it, because I wanted to see all pictures that a certain person posted in a profile on one of those pages. :)

That's pretty cool :) Ezran is actually derived from Ezra N. the first name and last initial of a charecter I wrote about in a short story back about 10 years ago or so. The 74 is because my two favorite numbers to write are a 7 and a 4. :)

77 would also be easy to write. :)

easy to write and I like the number 7 but I also wanted to get the 4 in their... oh and I also use it because it is the first two numbers of the registry numbers of the Defiant and Voyager lol
