Mine is taken from the sharp, pointy grass found in the more arid area's of Australia.
Since i spend the greater part of my life amongst it, i thought it appropriate.

Now time for a 10-100

Mine is the same in the meat world... my first name is Steven, middle name is Raymond, so folks have been calling me stevieray since I was a toddler. Unfortunately, it is often already taken, so I have a few fall-back names.

In the past, I have actually decided not to join a forum just because stevieray was taken! That was before I settled on a standard back up name, Three Chord Sloth. It doesn't "feel" as right as stevieray (if you know what I mean), but its getting close.
