    I have a condition known as synesthesia. I hear colors and shapes, smells create images, and I can hear things most people see. I've been this way my entire life, coupled with mild autism (Asperger's Syndrome).

    Anyway, when I got back into cycling, I searched high and low for lugged steel, and found a pink and purple Raleigh. To me, the combination of pink and purple is the word serendipity. It was my favorite word as a child, becuase those colors are so peaceful and serene. I remember looking up the word that kept popping up in my head everytime I went into my baby sister's room. When I read the definition, I fell in love with it, and serendipity became my favorite word.

    After reflecting back on my life, and how often things happen to me by mere coincidence, I considered myself the one that travels in serendipity, or a serendipitour. That sounded too pretentious for a call name in a public forum, so I merged serendipity with my favorite star cluster, Ursa Major/Minor. The stars that are so easy to find in the night sky, the favor is returned because everyone can easily find their way by them in return.

    Thus I became Serendipper.

    I use this for everything...it's the name of a company that used to be mine.

    I always thought synesthesia was fascinating. I know a musician who has it.

    I have long been a soccer fan, and in the 1994, the U.S., despite doing a little better than expected, took an early exit from the tournament. I found a World Cup chat forum and wanted to log on to participate and to give some support to the Mexican team, which was still in.

    I've always liked Zorro - the mix of civility, compassion, dignity, humility, and thirst for justice were all character traits that I admire. Anyways, when I tried to register as Zorro, I found that it had already been taken. So being from the USA, I stuck that at the front, and had no trouble registering, letting people know where I was from, and revealing a little bit about my values, and I think it gave me a little bit of cred with the Mexican fans. I've been lucky and have the same screen name on all the major free sites.
    The search for inner peace continues...

    I'm from Maine, have been skiing much longer than I've been biking. Add the downeast Maine accent to skier and voila: skiahh. If that doesn't work, think of it as ski-ahh, as in the great feeling you get when you're out making turns.

    Because I haven't been skiing much the past few years, if I had to come up with a name today, it'd be bikeahh.

    Hey skiahh, I didn't know you were from Maine...cool!!

    Serendipper...I love your explanation!

    Back in the old days when we got our first answering machine my wife had the bright idea to use the message, "You've reached the Wright house, but at the wrong time..." When we first went online I became Wright house Dad.

    That's very cool. I used to think I had synesthesia -- some number suggest colours to me, as do musical notes when written out (less so when I hear them) -- but it seems that it's more of a subtle subconscious association than full-on synesthesia. What sort of connections seem to be the strongest for you? Words and colours?

    As for my ID, it's fairly straightforward. As mentioned in another thread, one of my university flatmates and I often truncated words while speaking. He sometimes called me "gb" instead of my last name (Galbraith), since our other roommate shared the same first name. Across the street from our house was a Chinese-run convenience store that we jokingly called "cm", short for (ahem) Chinaman, as in "Hey! I'm going to CM to get some B!". Anyway, I bought a bike in China, and in a conversation with my friend, he suggested that what I had was in fact a CB. So it's not that politically correct, but you can't be politically correct ALL the time...

    It all makes so much sense now... I have spent a long time trying to understand your ID and pronounce it: Righteesedad? Ritusdad? Ritaysdad? Rightsdad? Now I can finally relax...

    I needed a user name for MSN and everything I wanted was taken. Well Ed is my first name and P is my last initial. The number 333 was taken and 777 did not rhyme. Therefore I ended up with edp773. Everyone became used to me using it, so it became a standard username.

    Other choices included bikED and biyclED. LOL.

    Great explanation.

    I am sure that serendipity was taken by the young lady who does triathalons with a prosthetic leg. She has moved over to cycling forums, but has earned my respect for a great can do attitude.
