How did you choose your forum name?

Just curious about peoples' sign in names and what the letters and/or numbers mean. Buzz is actually my husband's nickname and we only use his legal name when necessary. The 99 was added when we used Buzz for a sign-in on another website and Buzz was already taken. Karen

Sweetblood is the English translation of my Italian last name. Twenty-two is my favorite number.

I'm like Stacey, just used my first name and middle initial because I wanted something I could remember - LOL. Went through a lot of days where my brain was in a fog and thought that if I couldn't remember my name to log in then I shouldn't even be on the computer :)

I used to live in Florida and miss those oranges so much. After we moved back to NH my boss used to vacation in Florida and he would always bring my back some. He doesn't vacation there anymore so I don't get them anymore :(

Love your kittys!!

Well since you all know I love to fish...I'm also on several fishing forums too, who'd a thunk..

I used to have a Carolina Skiff boat, a J16 which was a 16' model.

So that's where the Skiffin16 came from.

Best,
John

The screen name 'rush1958' is a combination of my first name, "Rush" and the year I was born, "1958."

It's not very original, but it is simple and easy to remember. More interessting is how I got the name "Rush." I was originally due to be born on Christmas Day, but came a month early on Thanksgiving. My mother thought the name was appropriate under the circumstances.

Well, I had about 6 variations of first name, last name, then initials that were already taken, and then I chose this one not really thinking that it would be what everyone saw. I never really did much with discussion boards before. Now it just looks kind of silly that I chose it. I'm glad to have the chance to explain that, though, since I was kind of embarrassed about it.

I spotted it right away because I'm an NPC survivor. I said to myself "there's an NPC sister". There's only a few of us on here and I could be wrong but I think you're the only active NPC lady at this time. I like your handle. Welcome.

I don't think you can. I think you need to start over and create a whole new profile. Your name makes me smile every time I see it though. So if you change it needs to be something good like cutsbigones or borntocut1 or ijustcut1. I imagine all of those are still available.

There's no need to change it....your thinking makes perfect sense to you...it's as my Abi-Normal friends have voiced...we are the ones with the imaginations that took our thoughts to a place that....well that just smells bad, LOL....

Interpretations...a few years ago I was walking into the building where I work. In the parking lot, I noticed this small pick-up truck with a personalized license tag.

It had been personalized to say, "IAM4KY".....

I still remember coming into the building and saying, "Who in the H E L L whould have a plate that says "I am for KY" on the vehicle....

Come to find out, it was an older man that was a Kentucky Wildcats fan, LOL...totally not where my mind had went.

Best,
John

about changing forum name. I changed my picture. That is me on a cutting horse - no idea if this will help or not. Couldn't you guys have thought I was a surgeon or something? LOL

Nope, even with the picture, it would not have helped me one bit. I have never heard that term before, and I know nothing about horses. Nada, zilch, zip.

However, I did spend 17 years with my ex, who constantly thought it was funny to ask me to pull his finger. *sigh* *eyeroll* for some reason I don't miss him.

....I guess it's all relative...and what you know....

Still just messing around with luv2cut1. She asked if we could have though something different of her name,like she was a surgeon. I was saying I wouldn't have thought something that gross.
It would be hard to offend my sensibilities. Not sure I got any left.

Geeezzzz, I must be stupid or something or the chemo..or maybe the rads ...or maybe old age..or hmm no more excuses..I don't get it. I don't understand the joke about your name. And I admit it. I have tried and tried as I read this thread And I have not lead a sheltered .life. Or at least I didn't think I did. LOL
I mean maybe you where a barber, or a lawn mower, or a manicurist, or a bouncer, or maybe...enough Rose. Anyway, I've always been jealous when I see people on horses. My biggest dream was to move to Montana and get a little spread and ride horses and be a cowgirl. See what radiation does to your brain ????? Rose

LOL...I think it's so cute that you have no idea what the joke is about :) "Cut one" is slang for passing gas...made it sound like her name meant she loves to pass gas. Hope this explains it to you, I didn't want to get too gross while explaining it to you.

Bless you Glenna, I hesitated to post that. Finally. To be honest about it. While I was trying to figure it out....my futile imagination was coming with with stuff that was a lot worse then that. Thanks. Funny story..years ago I had a guy friend that would jump in the air click his heels to one side and "cut one" Oh my God, I used to tell him I wasn't going out with him anymore if he did it everywhere. But, I did. He'd just look at me with his stupid grin. and say "Well, what do you want me to do...explode..!!!!!"
What a great thread this has been. Lightens up the day and we all sure need that. Rose (Still cracking up.!!!)

Hope me saying where mine came from doesn't get me banned.

My speech pathologist calls me a Smart Ass. I had an old name here that I used to use but then left the site and one of my other friends from here would call me a Sh1t Head. So I put the 2 together and became Smart Ass Sh1t Head, or SASH for short.

Well, with these mysteries finally revealed about Myka and Sash's IDs, I must truthfully disclose that my clock number where I work is 22, and only the gals in my workplace can even imagine, or so I imagine that they could imagine, me as being anywhere close to sweet...k is for my first name, and cass is my middle name and Mom's bloodline. Other name I'd thought of would be that of the greatest football player ever, but some of you'd only wonder why I chose the name of a fighter's dog...And were he to find-out I was using his name? Heck, I'd have to move to Green Bay for protection (like they really could) from him, and that'd take away my will to live, so...

Ms because on other sites I only use wijik and people don't know whether I'm a girl or not LOL (I should have put Mrs. but then everyone thinks I'm 80 years old or something)

Wijik was the name of my first cat, and I got the name from a children's book.

NYC is where I live - New York City.

If Patrick had used this site, I imagine he would have used Ironworker1536 (he was out of Carpenters Local 1536 - scaffolders and timbermen)

Myka - I thought the same thing . . . sorry :)
