Doclassie 13 1.1k England

My nikcname, for years, was always "Proc" When I worked at the Beeb (as an animator) one of the producers overheard people calling me Proc and heard "Doc" so people (unfortunately) starting calling me Doc instead. I used to be 15 stone, wore glasses and also had a thing for hawaiian shirts..... which made me look (apparently) like John Lasseter (founder of Pixar, the company that made Toy Story, Nemo etc...) as such, my talented workmates started calling me Doc Lasseter, which became DocLassie .......

Not very exciting, but there you go!

Just a nickname given to me, and used, by close friends.

'Carabosse' is the evil fairy in Sleeping Beauty. Can't see the connection myself............

Jools = cool(?) abbreviation of Julian and b is the first letter of my surname. Not very exciting but there you are.

Ummmm ... can't remember how I chose mine. It was a flash of inspiration - sheer genius I'd say.

My name is the most creative on EPZ.

Henchard was the Mayor of Casterbridege in the Thomas Hardy novel (whose life then took a turn for the worse). I live in Dorset so 'twas a literary clue.

Mine is pretty sad really.
I have three kids Amy, Sophie & Alistair.
After the youngest 2 were born 10 years ago (Sophie and Alistair twins) I went and bought the number plate p3asa, representing "precious 3" or "problem 3" depending on how they were behaving.

I've used it for most things since then. It has its advantages in that it is always available as a username.

Can we also have your passwords and how you came by those as well? I am sure they are just as interesting Tongue

zanzibarwinds = fanciful name really. Always dream of going to Zanzibar and the wind must carry the smell of those spice islands

lead character name from one of my favourite films...I don't like the name as it sounds a little nerdy (sorry other clarences') but that's why it worked so well in the film

anyone care to guess the movie?

...although I should have used a reference to my surname, could have had much more fun.

A variation on the name of a character from Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
