LOL...

I decided to post up an old thread on the subject...check it out.

There are some very funny origins, as well as some interesting perceptions of what the various forum names were derived...

I went by many years ago....I've used it on the internet since I got my first computer.  The number 51 is the same as my email, so I can remember it Laughing....not too imaginative, but it's served me well on the internet for many years.

Ours is a bit more obvious, I met a man who grew up on the island where the Monolopy game was born, 3 houses from the beach! So we live on the NJ Shore, even married here on the beach.

PS - I met him over the Internet... So not all Internet is bad!

I think wolves are magnificent animals. Misunderstood and feared by many unless they are respected. I also like the movie "The Wolfen" and have wolf collectibles decorating my house right alongside our huge John Wayne collection.

Well, if you look at the original thread, there was a lady that has a screen name of Luv2Cut1... You know me, and apparently several others of my Abi-Normal Clan and our humor, love and miss Glenna, Dawn, Patty, Roz and StacyA...even my bub AB got into the act.

We totally had no idea she was talking about cutting horses..., LOL.

When she finally figured out what we were thinking she was to the point of wanting to change her screen name.

Even better was another lady that still din't know what we were all talking about..., LOL.

Well mine is probably pretty obvious to all..Ha,Ha. When I logged on, obviously I was full of emotion. All I could think of was "curing it all " so there would be less heart ache in this world. Then the year I was born...Ha, Ha....For most of you I'm probably a youngster.. Laughing (yet I don't always feel like one).

You are too much....LOL!  Hey, it could have been the year I graduated or the year of my current car...ha,ha.

But, I have sent special prayers up to God to get this stuff under control down here. In the meantime, I'm going to keep doing my Relay fundraising to keep sending the money for research. But, if there was a limit, you'd be at my top 66! ..Laughing

Thought about using my alias, Lord Winston Rothschild III, but that was a little lengthy, or my other alias, Dick Butkus Jr., but opted for my real first and middle names.

Well, John, I thought long and hard about what name to use, and then just decided to use the first name that came to mine, so I used it, along with my middle initial.

Noelle passed away just as Jim's treatment was starting.  As you can imagine, I was an emotional wreck, anyway, and Noellesmom just felt right.

I chose my screen name from Disney's "Fantasia". Yensid is the name of the sorcerer Mickey is apprenticed to.  I figured that since I was hoping for magic with my treatments, and truth be told, it does seem to be somewhat like witchcraft, that it would fit well with my journey through the battle with the 'beast'.  the digits are significant to my wife - the ever suffering caregiver - and I

When I got my first email account-I tried a bunch of names-everything was taken. Growing up, my sister always called me sassy so that and my first inital and last name became my username. I also use capecodrice also. But I forget when I use that one.

I posted an explanation on another thread but "fishmanpa" was something I came up with back '95 when I got my first computer and internet (remember dial up?) I've had the same email address since that time and still use the original ISP company for my email account. 

"fishman" because I love to fish and "pa" because I used to live in Pennsylvania (Delaware County and Philly) although I'm originally a S Jersey boy.

Hi John,

I always smile when I see one of your posts.....but I have to confess, I smile because I always think "potpie".

It was always one of my favorite comfort foods.
