I was considering this today when I was meeting people at the GDC, and whenever it came time to introduce myself it would come out sounding more or less like this:
"OH HELLO THERE SO AND SO! QUITE NICE TO MEET YOU! I'm uh, uhhh, you know ,uh, *cough*the senshi*cough* but you know you don't really have to call me that because it's quite possibly the dumbest screen name I've ever come up with *ahem*.. so uh.. oh hey free coffee over there!"
As you might be able to tell, I'm quite the smooth operator.
Of course, it could be worse. My username is pretty stupid and pretentious sounding, but at least its not gross or awkwardly sexual sounding. I mean, what if you had a screen name like "Poop Doctor"? That would be extra awkward. Especially if you didn't really have a medical degree, because then people would just think you're a liar. Just imagine the conversations you'd have...
"Oh, hi Poop Doctor! Oh hey, its awesome to finally find someone knowledgeable in that, because I've been having some issues with that lately and... oh, oh, you mean, you're not a real doctor? Oh.. I... well then this is slightly awkward because your username is a lie."
Well it sounded slightly more plausible in my head.
Oh yes, I also attented a rather interesting tutorial today, so I'll have a writeup of that in a bit. Yeah, I'm actually getting around to real coverage of the GDC. Shocking!
