What's your BF name mean?

forgive me if there's already a thread for this (yes, I did search the forums...gave up after about 30 pages of search)
Anyway... so many cool names. I'm curious what they mean?

Artifice = ingenuity; cunning; inventiveness; a clever trick or stratagem; trickery; guile; crartiness....

Mine is very cryptic and almost impossible to figure out. Good Luck.

Mines pretty easy - its a combination of words from Poe's poem "The Raven".

When I first got on the internet with AOL a bazillion years ago they required a username of course, and also of course my actual name and every variation of it had already been taken. So I started trying things like favorite tv shows, movies, ect... None were available and I was getting frustrated, so I tried "Raven" (favorite poem). It was taken too. I had it at that point and just threw "more" on the end of it ("quoth the Raven 'never more'") and the rest is history.

I used to belong to very small club that was once composed of an equally small number of people and we called ourselves "sixty fivers" since we shared the same model year (1965).

The user name was taken in memory of my dearest friend (another 65'r) who passed away very unexpectedly nearly three years ago... and her memory still inspires me daily.

I came up with the name when I was part of a christian mountain bike team.

You can figure out the rest.

Oh, and it has all the letters of my first name, Erik.

When I played baseball the coaches would call us by our last names, however they just called me by the first 3 characters of my last name, hos, pronounced like the Bonanza character Hoss. 13 was my jersey number, thus "hos13".

I love the Sermon on the Mountain Bike.

In the beginning there was the Wordbiker, and the Wordbiker was with God.

it could also be due to the fact that your camera only takes pics at 65 dpi.

I kind of fall into this catagory as well.

Username on everything. Too bad passwords can't always be the same.

You would have thought I was the guy who took that picture of your legs too... sometimes it makes things look a little pasty and washed out.
