I got my name back in college 1.0
All the druggies would walk past my room at 2:00 in the morning and see me wide awake doing one of my art projects on my floor. They started asking if I was on anything, I would say no, then they said that was sketchy. Well, finals came around, and I had to make a 'dream book' for my Communications and Presentation class. I wanted one of the pages to be shattered. So, when I was deliriously sleepy (3 days with no sleep), I decided to break the pane of glass(bad idea).
Well, the stuff I had on hand.. A metal bound spool of gold plated thread was not the greatest thing to break it with. so at 1:30 in the morning (Saturday Morning), I managed to break the pane of glass.
I'm shirtless, shoeless, sitting in the middle of my dorm room floor in a pair of shorts. When the glass broke, it went about 4 feet in the air, and about 4 feet in all directions. Glass shards everywhere, in my lap, in my hair...
then the druggies walked by. they all stopped in my doorway, say my predicament, and said I was sooo sketchy. they just started calling me sketchy. so for the next 24 hours, I sat in the middle of my floor and glued back the pane of glass. The next 24 hours solidified the name on my dorm room floor
I used it for my 'internet persona' back in 94, and it's stuck. there are many people who only use that name when referring to me.
As for the avatar, that is my son asking to be picked up.
