How lovely. I am also a big fan of Celtic music (Irish and Scots) and love all the various pipes and stringed instruments. I am also a fan of classical guitar music, though a couple of years of lessons and all the practice in the world could not substitute for musical talent, I'm afraid. :unsure:
Warm wishes,

How do you change your name? Do you have to register all over? I like Barefut's idea - I'll be Moo :D

Lady Deb --- Well my name is Debbie and Deb is the newest version of the name. Everyone calls me Deb now. Accually, my name is Deborah but noone calls me that except my mom when she is mad at me. Lady came from me trying to have some pride in myself. (Just a little self-esteem)

I'm sorry I am late at responding to this question. I use the name Sadie because thats my cats name.
My real name is Suzanne but I usually go by Suzi.

I can't wait to go through all of your posts & read them, I never noticed the Sclero Den till today! I'm studying for a microbiology test, but taking a quick break, when this class is done I'm SO coming here to read. I've always wondered about everyone's names. Barefoot always sticks in my head....lol.

Anyways, I love being a mom, I have 3 kids.... so... there ya have it!

My real name is Shirley but my Screen Name is Catty....
Guess why? LOL...
YEP! I am a huge Cat lover....I have 4 at the moment but one of them is 16 years old...totally deaf. I love animals in general...I had dogs all my life until the last 20 years or so then I went to Cats. They are more independent and do not want to go out the door with you whenever you leave the house like my dogs did...lol... :rolleyes:

What a great thread idea. I love reading these posts lol

When I was registering I tried to just put Karen but it was taken, so I added my middle name. Pretty boring but that's it :D

I use Christy because Chris was already taken. Have considered changing it to "Purr" for the same reason Shirley uses "Catty". :) Maybe I'll do that now!!!!

I don't know how I missed this thread...... It's really not smac like "smack", but s for the initial of my first name and mac (abbreviation for McIntosh) from my maiden name and the numbers represent my birthday.
I may have Scleroderma, but Scleroderma doesn't have me!

I am usually Smurfgoddess, but I must have registered before and I could not remember my password so I went with Smurfette. The Smurf thing is because I am shorter than my kids who are now 19 and 24. When my son was 14 he already was taller than I was and said "My Goodness Mom, you are a Smurf" and the name stuck. I said if I am a Smurf, I am the Goddess of all Smurfs and so the name I always used was Smurfgoddess. The problem with the sign on occurred and so I used my alias, given by a dear friend, who loves my kids and ran with their appraisal of me. She calls me Smurfette when not using Smurfgoddess. So there it is in a long winded sort of way.....it is all my kids fault.

Hello All,

How obvious is my screen name......do you think my name might be Amanda? How boring am I, actually I want to change it but don't know how.

The only significant part is 23 which comes from August 23rd , the date of my 10th wedding anniversary to my hunnybee and, wait for it.............the day I was inducted into the scleroderma hall of fame!!!!!!! get down!!!!!.......well I would if I could but I can't so I won't and if I did I coudn't get up again.

It was the day when Dr Garnett, rheumatologist to the Royal family, shook his head slowly and said "It's sclerodermaaaaaaaahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!! You see unlike most people I had heard of scleroderma and seen what it can do to people as two weeks prior to my diagnosis I watched a film you will no doubt be familiar with called For Hope. When Dr Garnett said the S word all I could see was visions of the unfortunate woman's face from the film. When he then asked me if I had neck stiffness and could I pucker up I though Pal if I can't wave me bye bye as I fly out the window over your left shoulder as I know where this is going I've seen it.

I'm pretty sure the migraine I had the following day was stress related. Needless to say I now have the film and my diagnosis in perspective.

I think I might change my screen name to Oh boy Oklahoma! :lol: :lol:

Take care.

Barefut, I always did wonder about your name and everyone elses.

This was a great read, I enjoyed reading the origins of everyone's name. I never really had a nickname growing up. My brothers' friends called them by our last name which was annoying, because all of us (there's 7 of us brothers and sisters) would turn around. When I started working in the police department, one of my comrades posted razzle dazzle on my locker. It's a take on my last name, Razo. I liked it and used it (mostly for my e-mail). I've used Razzmatazz before. I wanted to use something different here so I like Razzberry.


Cool thread!!


the Razz
:lol:

Also because I like raspberries.
Live well, Laugh often, Love much

JJ-Knitter? Initials of first and maiden names (I'm one of 5 JJ's in the family!) Knitter? Yeah, all the time! We had to move furniture last holiday to make room for the tree. That involved 2 old blanket chests I use as window seats. Wouldn't you know it, my Hubby wouldn't rest till they were emptied. Oh deary me, they were full of knitting wool~ :lol:

Another great topic!

In 1987 I bought a 1967 red (hard top) Mustang. I drove it as my car for many years and people said it must be my alter ego. Car's plates are "Mutsy 67" and yes I still own it but it sits in the garage except for Sunday drives when the weather is nice.

Well I thought I'd share the deep psycological significance of my current screen name of ohboyoklahoma!!

You see at college I studied theatre studies which involved learning about the great theatre practicioners one of whom set the foundations of the method later made famous by the Lee Strasbergh studio the rest is history.

Such a background left me with a thirst for great dramas with gritty dialogue and smouldering performances all of which I did not find in my favourite film of all time Dirty Rotten Scoundrels starring Michael Caine and Steve Martin. Steve Martin plays Ruprect described as the monkey boy.

We see him in an orange suit with the trousers too short, socks too high slicked forward hair and an eye patch, you get the picture. He sits perched on the bed next to a toilet with a large tyre hanging from a rope where he has been playing with his pans again. He walks with knuckles scraping the ground and utters in a nasal tone mother not mother at every femail.

Having been told he is being taken to Oklahoma he grabs his copper pans bangs them together and proceeds to run around the room shouting oklahoma oklahoma oklahoma oh boy oklahoma. We are told he'll enjoy the wide open spaces as he loves to run and run. The film is an oldie but a goodie, hilareous without being offensive and one of my family favourites.

Of course I would have to bang my pans to oh boy scleroderma scleroderma scleroderma!! :lol:

Sorry Jefa that would be logical. I've never been to Oklahoma although I did live in Illinois and Texas for 10 years.
