When I was a kid, many, many years ago, my uncle used to tease me and call me Whirlaway after a racehorse, because I could run so fast. When I first set up my e-mail accnt, I tried to get whirlaway, but it was taken, so whirlway it was. Too bad I can't still run that fast, I can't run at all now, due to the many surgeries I have had.
I do have another handle but don't use it much and not here at all, it is Mamamariner. My kids call me that due to the fact that I am a complete and total Mariners baseball fan. My, oh, my! People in the pacific northwest should understand that. d:0) (If you look at that symbol sideways, it is me wearing my baseball hat! Maybe I should have put a frown on the face since they were eliminated yesterday, but hope springs eternal when it comes to baseball, there is always next season. :D

Hey Mamamariner,

I guess I could be Mamahawk as I am a die hard Seahawk's fan. Yesterday's game was a nail biter! My 5 year old told me he could hear me yelling clear down at the neighbor's house. Oh well.......its good therapy! :lol:

GO HAWKS!

I use Annie - my middle name is Anne and I like it better than my first name. And N is the initial of my last name.
So interesting to hear everyone's name story...

Tru is my dear, special and adorable cocker spaniel. He is the love of my life together with his sister Mita (pronounced meata). Without these two, my life would be in despair. Tru is 12, and our time is limited, but I will do all I can to make sure his days are as happy and loving as he's made mine. Mita 8 and all still full of "puppy". My little loves.

tru, I think that is so special... to use your beloved dog's name as your screen name. It's also neat that you're a dog lover and have not only one dog but two :rolleyes: ... Hubby and I used to have a cocker... his when we got married...If yours is anything like Brandey was... and it sounds like he is, I sure understand your feelings for him :)
I love the name Mita too... just wondering... where did her name come from?

We adopted a poodle last November... her name was "Cuddles", but my hubby couldn't see himself calling her that (I saw his point)! lol Now, she must be in identity crisis, as she's called many endearing names, but we formally call her Miss Muffet, as you know, though she's very sweet, it's the way she and other poodles carry themselves, that we came to name her that :P

I can't remember if it was me or my friends who started calling me princess, but it was because every year I write a holiday/birthday list and send it round to my friends. No, I'm not 12! My birthday is a week before holiday and people were always asking me what I wanted as gifts, so I started keeping a list. It made sense, but I see how it came across as a spoiled princess! B is the first letter of my name.

I use jude because one of my late uncles started calling me that over 40 years ago and it stuck, with him, anyway. The grouch part, well, do NOT try to talk to me before noon. At least noon!

Im late coming on board with this one. Im loving all these cool places to get to know you all. My real name is Sue. I wanted it as my screen name, but it came back as already being used. One of my sisters, Rose, calls me Susannah when I call her Rosemary, its just one of those silly sister things and I like it, so thought it was a nice name to use and everytime I use it, it reminds me of my dear sis who is far away from me at the moment.

My screen name is rather simple although I have been asked questions like, "Do I not like vowels". lol Mine is Ms for MS. then CHT which are my initials. It is simple and I use this name everywhere I go on several other sites.

Glad I found my way in here.

Well, I'm another late comer to this thread :P My husband gave me the screen name "relicmom1". He is an avid collector of Indian relics and fossils and when we got our first computer many years ago, he set up everybody's screen name. He's "relicboy" My kids were like 6 & 10 at the time and they were "relicboy1" and "relicgirl". The kids of course have changed theirs, but he and I have kept ours all these years. I just use this one on everthing that requires a user name because of my "brain fog" issues with memory :rolleyes: Before we had kids (or BC as we call it around here-before children :lol: ) we had doggies and back then he always called me either "mamma dog" or "mamma rabbit"
Peace :)
Peace :)

I guess I'm not creative enough to think of something :unsure: - so I just used my name. Cheri. It would be more fun to think of something else - it was really fun to read how everybody came up with their screen name.

I guess if I would have been creative I could have used Moo. My son always calls me moo - He used to call me Momasons from the time he was really little. Guess when he got older it was too much to say so he shortened it to Moo - I love it! He's almost 40. :)

Hey Cheri,

I Like Moo! It's not too late to change your screen name. Jen went to Tangelo because she was always referring to her Telangiectasia as looking like the color of a Tangelo. Some of us have shortened it to Tangie or Tange. I like it. :)

Moo is cute. Use it :D

mando621 - mando for mandolin. I had to stop playing mandolin after I hurt my shoulder. I just had shoulder surgery, typing one handed here. 6-21 my birthday. I can't wait until I can get back to playing again. I hope I'll be able to get back to my fiddle playing once my shoulder is back to full strength. I play Irish music. I also like to bake and I enter the Milwaukee Irish Fest baking contest. I usually win something in every baking contest I enter. I recently won a prize for a recipe I entered online, for a simple cheese cake - instant kind.

My kids say that my interest in Irish music is my new mid-life fad.
