My Rejected XBOX Live Names

My regular readers know I play on Xbox LIVE sometimes, and all four of you probably remember me posting a picture of my Xbox LIVE Avatar. I've been playing a lot of Fallout 3 lately, and I only do Halo matchmaking if I'm with friends.

My name on there is Blood 4 Bacula. Why? Because Count Bacula and any non-stupid variations of it were already in use. But I was steadfast in my resolve to make reference to the episode of Quantum Leap where Sam leaps into a vampire. So I settled for connecting it to one of my favorite vampire movies of all time.

It wasn't the only name I had planned. Here is a list of named that didn't get used. You may use them if you wish, no additonal permission required. I only ask that if you do use them, you ad me as a friend on LIVE (search for Blood for Bacula) so I can shoot your Spartan in the face.

Without further ado, here are the rejected Xbox LIVE handles in no particular order:

Limestone Cowboy
Comrade Gadget (note: used in one of my books)
Punchmistress III
Operation Gothic Serpent (actually a thing...look it up)
