Hey, Trixie! C'mere!

So, sk8rixtx… What the heck does that mean? I’ve got the sk8r part. I feel like it’s going to be something really simple, but I don’t have to feel stupid because I know I’m not the only one who’s curious. :smiley: Okay then. Let’s have it.

Okie, let’s get this straight. Pull up a seat and pay attention kiddies:

Three things you should know before I begin…

  1. I like to skate. (sk8)
  2. The Matrix, c’mon, great movie.
  3. FenixTx, c’mon, great band.

Okay, to get started, you take my favorite hobby (skating) and start my username off with “sk8”.

Now, take the Matrix, and substitute the “M-a-t” with “sk8”
and you’ve got yourself sk8rix.

Finally, to pay homage to my favorite band, FenixTx, one only has to throw on “tx”.


Say it like “Matrix” and pronounce the “t” and the “x” separatly.

Phoeneticly(sp?)- skate - ricks - t - x


The Sk8 is “skate”, the rix is to make it rhyme with “matrix” and thereby make it sound cooler. The tx (said as “t-x”, not as “tix”) is from some band, i think, and refers to Texas. So you should be saying “skay-trix-tee-ex” when you say his name.

I learned all this in a particularly slow day on #straightdope. I knew it would come in handy someday.

By the way, I love you Silver Fire… :slight_smile:

Alternate pronunciation : DORK :smiley:

Trixie: THANK YOU! Whew… I feel better now.

Joey: Awwww… What about VB? :wink:

MrC: BWAHAHAHAHA!!! I’ll still call him Trixie though. :slight_smile:

Well, it’s sure as hell better’n Portnoy.

Har…har…har. Incase you haven’t noticed, that laugh was filled to the brim with sarcasm.

Someone woke up on the wrong side of the bed today!

Unless you’re punha, in case you were born out of the wrong orifice :smiley:

Mr. Cynical, I’m so disappointed. Really, I am. :frowning:

Hey, iampunha! You think Portnoy is bad? You should hear some of the things people call you!

Actually, hon, Valerie edges you out (you’re a real close 2nd). But take comfort in that fact that you’ve been edged out by the best, and I haven’t even met you…

But I do love you. :slight_smile:

Okay, yeah. That makes me feel better. NOT! I’ll just have to find someone who puts me first. Hmmm…

::glances at her sig::

I’ll assume that position Silver… wait, that’d be illegal. Ah well…

Silver Fire starts singing: Age ain’t nothin’ but a number…
