I knew the LulzSec guys used that but I hadn't any clue that it was a pop tart! Sometimes, you just gotta sleep a little later than usual and miss the daily meme. Hrm, if I could remake that pop tart with St. Bernard's body, I'd use it.

So, a bit uncreative, I chose a name of a character from a novel.
I read "The Great Gatsby" at the time I joined. And the character I disliked the least (besides Nick) was Jordan Baker.
And I am so dorky, I actually wondered, "Gatsby fan?", when I first saw your nick!

Re: What's the significance of your EF name?

Mon nom signifie que je ne parle pas français parce que je pense que c'est la pire des langues dans le monde.

Quand les hommes parlent français, ils sonnent gaies aussi. Donnez-moi un homme bon allemand. Maintenant, il ya une langue forte. Allemand. Oui, bébé. Il me tourne sur tout va bien.

C'est tout. merci. Bonne nuit.


My name means I do not speak French because I think this is the worst language in the world.

When people speak French, they sound gay too. Give me a good man in Germany. Now there is a strong language. German. Yes, baby. I turned on all is well.

That's it. thank you. Good night.

Re: What's the significance of your EF name?

Since I was small, I've always loved taking pictures of the sky and imagining shapes amongst the clouds. I'd imagine aeroplanes flying far away and wondered about rainbows.
Forgot to grow up, hence a natural choice as an avatar.
