my journal is 4 years and 6 days old now.
Febuary 1st, 2001 i first dipped my toe in the pool of LJ. Then fell in.
I'm debating changing my username.
Do you care, or should I stop berating my LJfriends for advice on this?
I care! I want to have input!
Does "inahandbasket" suit me?
uh, I don't understand the question...
What would be a better username?
*edit* pants is already taken. bummer.
Why did you choose "inahandbasket"?
And why is "lord google" your website?
hmm, I talked about that at some point, but I'm too lazy to hunt it up now. I should really use the memories better.
Inahandbasket - from "going to hell in a handbasket," was a good reflection on my outlook on the world at large. I was a very cynical young man in high-school and early college. I'm still a cynical bastard, but it's no longer my driving force in life. And I don't think the world is quite spiraling down a pit of dispair anymore either, although we'll see who the next president is after Shrub.
Lordgoogle - http://www.livejournal.com/users/inahandbasket/299360.html
at my last job, they called me Lord Google because I am, the lord of google.
I could find info faster than anyone else there, and would occassionally be having a conversation with someone about something inane (like monkey origami), we'd walk back to our desks, and by the time they turned on their computer I'd have IMed them a handful of pertinent links.
Hmm How about "Cynicalbastard"
or what is the driving force in your life right now?
damn shame pants was taken. how about straight-edge pants: xx_pants_xx?
Why? does he wear a lot of pants?

As much as I like apathetic_without_pants, or brainless_pants (which remind me of the Thneeds from Dr. Seuss's The Lorax), I'm not sure they fit you any more than inahandbasket. I'm not sure your LJ name needs to symbolize the be-all and end-all of one's identity. I mean, I chose oceanic at ten o'clock at night because I was sailing and this was supposed to be a temporary journal, and now it's become like the Nora-moniker of doom that I'm known for everywhere. It fits a large section of my personality, but not all of it. Though it's such a general circus-tent concept that I could fit almost everything known to mankind under it, if I wanted to. I think you should take a bit of yourself that you like and run with it. I get the feeling that the real reason you're looking for a new username is that the little bit of you that "inahandbasket" represents isn't a happy bit.
but I could be wrong. :)
