    I didn't. Come up with it, I mean. It seems it always was...
    It's been with me for thirty years, and in the early 90's when the dreams were most fervent it was the first thing I thought to identify as when venturing online.

    Mesembryanthemum was one letter too long, so I had to improvise.

    My username came out of a conversation with a close friend of mine, back when the two of us were in high school.

    We were running the RPG / board games club there, and were on our way home (we both walked the same way). The two of us were bandying about ideas for different games, settings, and characters, and I got excited - as one does, when really exploring D&D for the first time.

    My friend semi-jokingly called me a zealous creative, but the words he used were “some kind of momentary cultist”, jumping from idea to idea. They weren’t meant to be rude or insulting, but neither were they a compliment: they were a simple statement of fact, a commentary on the nature of my thinking.

    So, when I decided to join these forums - coming up on a decade now, wow - in a fit of pique I decided to own that monicker. ‘3 seconds’ seemed to roll off of the tongue, and the number 3 has a great deal of symbolic significance in a number of cultures, so that was that.

    My name is from my first D&D character. Originally a dwarf ranger, turned cleric because the party needed a healer more than anything else. He worshiped Gruumsh because his eye was removed by a dwarf lich and then he was found by orcs who raised him as a sign from their deity.

    I used one of those name rating/divination websites to see what would be a super lucky first name to my supposed great great great great great grandfather's last name would be. Other options were Rikimaru and Jyuzow.

    It's a Jewish cookie. It's shaped like a triangle, meant to represent the hat of Haman, a man who conspired against Jews. We eat them on Purim, when we celebrate the story of how Miriam & Mordecai worked together to convince the king to go after his advisor, Haman, instead of the Jews.

    I used the 'Homentashan' spelling because if I were to call myself Hamantash, a lot of people would call me Haman for short, which is displeasing to me.

    Three things:

    Obviously, I love Monty Python. I'm totally a sucker for anything funny, and I love reading all the silly memes and jokes (and making a few of my own).

    I remember finding a badass vorpal sword in Baldur's Gate as a kid. Gave it to Minsc, laughed out loud as he screamed while chopping heads off. Good times.

    And finally I went by Killerkat on Neverwinter Nights servers. Made a lot of friends and had some great adventures.

    Put them together, and it all clicked, and that's how I got here.

    In my case, everything is very simple and boring. It's just my first and last name + my year of birth)
