Call signs

A little while back we were having a conversation in the pod bay about where people’s call signs came from.  Cyd and I thought it might be fun to create a thread here on the website where we could all share those stories.  For example, mine, Pooka, came about during my first ever time playing in the pods.  We were in Chicago at Dave and Busters in either 2002 or 2003 we were asked for call signs and one of my old ones was too long, another, created as a joke, was not at all appropriate, and I was stuck.  I quickly pulled out one of the many nicknames I had given to my cat.  Pooka, for the Irish spirit.  As call signs have a tendency to do, Pooka stuck, and of all of the call signs I thought of that day I am so glad I picked Pooka.
