1) I grew up in a right-wing family... and have come far from that.
2) (Obviously) a critical comment on the mindbend idea of there being a "Mr. Right" for any given woman. ("Someday my prince will come!")
3) Decades ago a certain woman fell in love with me... and then - once we were a "couple" - almost immediately tried changing me into her "Mr. Perfect".
I wrote her a poem (never showed it to her) with the opening lines:

If you're looking for Mr. Perfect,
What the hell are you doing here?!
There's no-one here by that name:
I'd have thought that was pretty clear.

Short for Nepenthe, "that which chases away sorrow." Also a magical potion that cures sorrow through forgetfulness (not that I approve of that), referenced in the Odyssey.

Also refers to Nepenthes, a genus of carnivorous plant, particularly Nepenthes Miribilis, the common swamp pitcher plant. Mirabilis means wonderful.

So, um... wonderful potion of forgetfulness... that eats bugs...

Um... yeah.

The usual name I've been using online for years was unavailable, so I decided to use this shortened form. Honestly surprised this name wasn't already taken. Most of the people I talk to online call me 'ghost' or 'ghostie' anyway, so it works as well as anything.

A forgetful bug eater. That is awesome!

I wish I could say I had some intriguing story for my screen nick. I usually go with "girlzone", a lyric from a Tori Amos song (Caught A Light Sneeze), but I guess I had Buffy on the brain, and "girlpatrol" came out.

Not that Buffy isn't also awesome. Except I'm not patrolling graveyards so much as internet forums. And, also, not looking to slay. More or less looking to meet. So I guess "girl patrol" works in that respect, too.

Just realized that I never actually posted mine in here - I meant to, but kept forgetting. LOL.

Well, I didn't want to use my normal online handles, but still wanted to be true to myself and my personality still. I love astronomy and I'm a pagan, so my mind immediately went to the stars and moons. It took me a while, but I settled on ArgentLuna, which is the Latin translation for Silver Moon.

Most of my handles have some form of the Moon in it. That's because I have a connection to the moon. It's beneath the light of the moon that I am most... aware of all around me. There are words that describe me better than silver, but those are too closely connected with my other handles! LOL.

Seems simple, but it was actually hard to come up with something that DIDN'T point to my other handles!

Drgnmastr1 is derived from a name used by the Army’s 159th Aviation Regiment, “Dragon Master”, and of which I was a member a number of years ago. The “1” designated that I was their Personnel Officer (S-1).

My avatar is Ignatz Mouse taken from the Krazy Kat cartoon strip.

To quote my friends at Wikipedia, “The strip focuses on the curious love triangle between its title character, a guileless, carefree, simple-minded cat of indeterminate gender (referred to as both "he" and "she"); the obsessive antagonist Ignatz Mouse; and the protective police dog, Offissa Bull Pupp. Krazy nurses an unrequited love for the mouse. However, Ignatz despises Krazy and constantly schemes to throw bricks at Krazy's head, which Krazy misinterprets as a sign of affection. Offissa Pupp, as Coconino County's administrator of law and order, makes it his unwavering mission to interfere with Ignatz's brick-tossing plans and lock the mouse in the county jail.”

castalia was (by one search) an oracle in the order of delphi and after searching again i found that she was a nymph who jumped into a fountain to escape apollo, the fountain was later named after her.
either way it fits, i am a very intuitive person but often wonder if i am just full of hot air and water is my most loved escape from the stresses of the world.
i've never really had a nickname, but have often been told i have a fireball personality

i also discovered a love for greek mythology this year so wanted to incorporate that and liked that the name could be shortened to cassy.

I think that the reason I picked questioningperson as my username is because ever since I've been a kid in middle school I've always questioned things like crazy, and with most kid when they hit pre-teen age or whenever they stop the excessive questions.

With me that just hasn't been the case I've got this weird quote and I'm not sure if an adult ever told me this or I made it up in my little head at the time but its this: "always question things like crazy because somewhere you might just find an answer to it" but I just thought that this username would fit my personality perfectly and that it was deep and unique all at once so I thought why not express all that with two words combined and it's perfect for what I question with this though that last thought didn't pop into my head at the time I was registerstrating.
