Hmmm. Interesting LJ go-around.
This one goes along the lines of: "If you call me X, then Y." So, in alphabetical order, if you call me...

Babu or Babu-Babu: then you are a Chinese co-worker of mine. This nickname is due to Kuo-chang, who informed me ice cream trucks in China go 'babu-babu'.
bighoof: then you are Brayer, see under 'Entau'.
Bob: then you are likely a close friend, family member, co-worker, or someone who has met me in person.
Bobby: then you are in mortal peril.
Bobi: then you are Puerto Rican.
Brazos: then you knew my old alt on Unbridled Desires.
C.L.: then you are austin_dern.
Chiaroscuro, Chi, Chia, Chiar, Chiaro, etc: then you know me from FurryMUCK or FluffMUCK, or perhaps via Anthrocon. It's a given you're a furry.
Chio: then you are spengler or his sister Deanna (Regina on FM).
Chipper, Chip, etc: then you know me from SinaiMUCK.
Entau: then you know my Trinidadian Clydesdale Centaur character from Unbridled Desires MU* or FluffMUCK.
Furhoo: then you know me from The Kill Everyone Project.
Goose: then you are likely Bradley or Skoob, though you may just be one of the folks from the 'Mongoose' entry below.
[censored] or [censored] then you know my semi-secret alts on FurryMUCK.
Manguuza: then you are Feverpetal.
Mongi: then you are Tricuspa, and I will call you 'pangobango' back.
Mongoose: then you probably know me from one of the following: Baylor University, ddrfreak.com, Anthrocon regstaff.
Mongoosieloosie: then you are Eapa, and I've probably just called you 'snakieshakie'.
Mr. Themyst: if you're nasty.
Rayonnant, Ray, Rayo:Then you know a certain raccoon on FluffMUCK.
Robert: then you know me RL but probably are just an acquaintance, or just can't seem to wrap your mind around calling me 'Bob'.
Slinkman: then you are Slickpuppy.
The Mystic Mongoose: then you know me from Usenet, from newsgroups such as rec.arts.comics.misc or alt.tv.animaniacs. Or, you may know me from The Jihad To Destroy Barney. It's likely you knew me from 1998 or before.

Hey, now, I've got good reason for using 'C.L.' ... when I met Chiaroscuro he was trying out life as 'C.L.Themyst' on FurryMuck, instead of having a flexible name that adapted to his current species. Now, of course, it's just a way of baffling everybody who joined FurryMuck since 1996, which is also a good thing to do.

You were The Mystic Mongoose, though? I have faint memories of reading your Usenet stuff, though I've always been more a rec.arts.comics.strips reader (still am, really) ... boy, wasn't Usenet fun while it lasted? (See my comments else where about the Chuckletrousers Decade.)

*nods* Indeed. I was 'Chiaroscuro' for a good year and a half, then changed to 'C.L.Themyst' for another year or so for several reasons (Spinning off Kit-aroscuro into Kittel, and moving past a breakup with Regina, being the two main ones.) I kept that name a good 10 months, maybe a year, then reverted to 'Chiaroscuro'.. which is a ultimately better name choice. Still, it was the sort of change that worked for a while, and not many people will make a change of that nature.

And yes, I was The Mystic Mongoose on Usenet. Most of my posts were in three overall group-categories: The comics groups of rec.arts.comics.* and alt.comics.lnh; the animation ones of alt.tv.animaniacs (where I was 1/8th the newgroup traffic the first year) and alt.tv.tiny-toons; and alt.barney.dinosaur.die.die.die, where I was early enough of a force in the Jihad To Destroy Barney to be mentioned here. There were also occasional incursions into alt.fan.warlord, alt.music.tmbg, and other random groups. Usenet, though, got killed for me when I found FurryMUCK; It was on life support for about a year, then faded away shortly into just following images on fur.artwork.*- and I soon used Critter.net's auto-web-page-izer, and then edged off that in '01 or so.

Usenet was good, though. I miss it, and moreso, what I used to be when I was a part of it in vibrant days. Well, here's a .sig from the old days.
