Mine comes from a condition I've had since birth. It's seems my center of gravity often leaves my body and moves around me, so I often find myself floating weightlessly in the air. Kids in school used to call me names like "Floater", but thankfully, political correctness came around, and now I'm gravitationally challenged.
The CoasterDude part of my name came from the old store at the exit of Shockwave at SFGAm. If I would have known CoasterDude was such a common name at the time I registered I would have never picked it.
But feel free to spell it however you like, since most people do that anyway. Vatar, Vator, etc...I mean, does it really matter? My real name is Mike, and people spell it Myk, Myke, Mic...you name it. Hey, as long as it somewhat resembles the real thing...
I like impulses and I do a lot of things without much advance notice ... i.e. - impulsively (like deciding to go to PKD for opening day Friday at 4 ... from Pittsburgh, PA). And I'm one creative s.o.b., therefore, Impulse-ive.
I used to be PittDesigner, but that was when I went to Pitt and wanted to be a coaster Designer - both in the past.
Mine was assigned to me when I worked at Microsoft. They took your first name and as many letters of your last name as were needed to make a unique ID. There were already "gregl" and "gregle"'s, hence "gregleg". The name flows well and has stuck ever since, to the point where I now have a barcode tattoo that says it.
Mine is from the Euclid Beach Thriller, which started my fasination with wooden roller coasters at an early age. Also my second model coaster is named after the Thriller in tribute of it's classic stature and my enthusiasm. Plus I like to come on here and make comments to Jeff that give him a thrill! ;) It's all good though!!!
