    just because
    I built my first computer back in 92. I spent most of my life daydreaming, so when I signed up for yahoo back then, I added my birthday, 110761, which is now also my dx date....blah (well, not the 61 part).

    Katie - what type of law? My fiance is criminal and bankruptcy, one is interesting and doesn't pay well, the other is boring, but in today's economy.....

    Mine....well......
    I had a friend come over one day while I was cooking and I ask him if he wanted something to eat. He answered yes so I fixed him a bowl of my dumplings.....Squirrel and dumplings as a matter of fact and he told me if you can eat that you will eat anything and so will a buzzard...and the rest is history......

    Book of Job in the Bible
    Ketziah was the daughter of Job. Ketziah "her skin was the color of cinnamin"-totally me! Part of a family that went through and endures a lot of crap- me! The nickmame is Kizzy , which is a female ancestor in the book Roots, by Alex Haley. She went through a bunch of crap. I pay respects to my ancestors with this name.

    Actually this would be a great way for new members to tell their story about their screen names. We all have different reasons and this just brought it to the surface. OK new members, why your screen names.

    I never know what to use as a screen name, but I'm a huge University of Kansas fan -- an alum -- where I met my darling wife -- where my only child recently graduated and was on the dance team -- and, hopefully the institution (KU Med) that will help keep me around to watch a few more Jayhawk victories. And, very creatively, my name is Dan.
  • I picked a name too long
    Momof2plusteentwins - kind of messed up - should be momof4includingteentwins that would be too too long - anyway I have 4 children 29, 26, and twin boys 15. My twins are from invitrofertilization - maybe with all the drugs I took for invitrofertilization it caused cancer, who knows, but they are the best thing that happen to me, besides my husband, and two older kids lol.

    When I was 19 at my fist duty station, my best friend one time tossed me a book, The Moon Men by Edgar Rice Burroughs. The second half of the book is told by a character named Red Hawk and Keith insisted that character was me. So, he tagged me with the nickname "Red Hawk". About 20 years later when I got my doctorate, I was talking with another old friend that I hadn't heard from in ages. When I told him about my DPhil, he said "well you can't be Red Hawk anymore, you've got to be Doc Hawk."

    Nickname
    My nickname is Vita. I've always wanted my license plate for my sports cars (I'm into cars - but I no longer have a sports car) to be "Yo Vita". So I carried that dream here.

    Screen Name
    As you can see by my pic, I have kitties (actually technically cats now) and they bring me much entertainment and joy.

    Also, I sign my posts as "Marie who loves kitties" because when I first arrived here saw posts from herdizziness signed "Winter Marie". At the time I didn't realize that "Winter" was actually part of her name. I thought maybe there were several Marie's posting. So I decided I needed a way to sign which made this Marie different from any other Marie.

    Thanks for starting such an interesting post!

    Animal Lover
    I love animals, some more that people, LOL. I just think that wolves are magnificent. I even have a collection of wolf related items. Would I want to have one as a pet ? I don't really think so. I enjoyed the movie "The Wolfen" several years ago, so just chose this screen name and avatar.

    Luv,

    I felt
    that I was a very lucky girl, had it not been for that vacation, I think I'd be really really sick now. I tried luckygirl and it was taken so I went with luckygirl2 with 2 meaning too. Still feel very lucky!

    I like tummy rubs!
    Actually, it's my first 2 initials, followed by part of my last name. After I created it, I realized what it said to others!

    Keep those tummy rubs coming in!

    screen name
    well, I really had my creative juices flowing the night I joined these forums, so I took my first name and put it in front of my last name, just to be different. I know often people put their last name AFTER their first name, but I would have none of that silly horsesh!t. I just wanted people to know the creative genius I am, or was. IDK, I have chemo brain, maybe I thought I was filling out a medical form of some kind. I have no clue now what made me decide to use my real name.

    My screen name is the first 3 letters of my first name and the first four letters of my last name.
    Had to really wrack my brain to come up with that one!!

    My name is Mike R, and I am a certified THX Engineer.

    I went from computer programmer to Digital Audio. I do not ride a desk as much! Audio Engineers get to be out where the products are. I built a business building and Calibrating Recording Studios. It is like I play with everything I love all day! Music, Sound, and Computers. I move all day and move equipment around. I retired out. I used to have a 20 something work for me full time and ran them into the ground every day. (My generation really messed up teaching their kids work ethics and reading to stay educated.)

    Best Always, mike

    herdizziness
    Every time when I was younger(and cuter) and I needed to get out of a ticket I would play the ditzy blonde to the hilt, such as "After your done looking up my license could you please help me find the highway, I'm so lost", so when I was looking for a name back originally when we first got the internet all the good "blonde" ones were gone, and I could only come up with "herdizziness" for her ditzy blonde.
