What are the stories behind your handle? Any regrets?

Not much of a story here, but I was so excited when I discovered Eccie and I thought I had to come up with a handle right away. I didn't put much thought into it, except to think of what a crappy golfer I am. My golf game hasn't gotten any better, but I probably should have given the handle more consideration and done something more original.
When I joind ASPD in '06 I had been a non-member lurker for several months and enjoyed the handles.. I pondered some combination involving words like probe or plow with some reference to femal anatomy. I thought about some obscure word play or pun on my real name.
I finally setteled on a handle that has nothing to do with me and at first glance is just an alpha-numeric jumble—like a license plate. If you look again it may seem a bit sugestuve of an old joke involving oral sex. I think an '80s band had an album with a similar title too (Van Halen?).
Just say ithe letters and numbers fast outloud—and you'll get it.
Mine is a quote from Bruce Willis' character in The Fifth Element. See the quote below. Always thought it was funny as hell, and a little oddball.

Many people think that I borrowed my name in part from the song "Fancy" made popular by Reba McEntyre (although originally written and recorded by Bobbie Gentry) about a dirt-poor mother training and sending her daughter off to be a high-class hooker. Nope.
I'm nearly 6 ft tall and have been wearing high heels for years, something perceived as impractical and showy in a poor Irish family. My Gram used to ask me, "Why ye bein' all fancy in heels, bairn?" (Bairn means "child" among the Irish and Scots.) She just thought I was calling attention to myself. Well, yes, of course I was. When I decided to become a companion, that phrase came to mind and just seemed perfect, imaginative and original enough not to be forgotten easily, like me, I hope.
