When I joined (for the umpteenth time) a few weeks ago, I chose the name Sc0res b/c when I make the trash can, I yell "Score!" I know I'll do that when I reach my goal. However, one of my favorite usernames (& I just switched to this one) is Millersm0m. JP's grandfather was a Miller and had only daughters. (JP is hubby; WT is son.) So, in our own way, we're carrying the name by giving WT "Miller" as a nickname, though we're seriously considering a hyphenated last name.

You know, I never thought to search the net for my username - I use it for everything! So many things showed up - not too pleased about that. Thanks for mentioning that.

BTW my username comes from my husbands first initial+ the letter n representing and +, my first initial+ forever + the year we got married. My little brother came up with it for me when he succeeded in persuading me to get my first email address a couple of years ago.

When my husband and I first met, he told me that I was like a pooka (a happy, mischievious day-fairy) while he was like a sluagh (a melancholy, introverted night-fairy). He was wrong, but we liked the way the two sounded together, and when we made our first joint email address, we used pookasluagh. That address very quickly turned into a just-me address, and as I was later diagnosed (incorrectly) with bipolar disorder, I said the fairy combo fit my bipolar personality. I've been using it for 12 years now and it's just stuck.

I've always like my name Stacey but I didn't like that there wasn't really any nicknames for it & I always wanted a nickname. So when I was younger I'd pretend to myself that my name was actually Anastasia & that Stacey was my nickname. As I got older I thought Anastasia sounded too prissy. LOL But then we read the book The Return of the Native by Thomas Hardy in English class in HS and the main character is Eustacia Vye. I loved that name because it was different. (I didn't notice how much it sounded like Eustachian tubes until much later.) I tried signing up for something one day & tried to use the user name of Eustacia but it was taken so I shortened it but that was taken too. So I just added "_angel" for no good reason & it worked. And I've just used that name for signing up on things since.

Wow, interesting thread. I learned a lot!

I tried to pair two defining parts of me without revealing my real name - so I chose Jersey because I'm from New Jersey, and Flower because I love growing flowers.

I also think I'm one of the few people on here who never shares my real name. My name is a very unusual spelling and if you were to Google it, along with "New Jersey" I'm quite certain you'd find me. This way I can hide on Spark and say what I really feel, without worrying that people from my real life will see it.

I used lyrics from my favorite song, Under Pressure by David Bowie and Queen. The lyrics are pretty open to interpretation, but for me they remind me to be more loving and accepting of myself and to be more generous toward others.

I picked Charm City Mom because I live in beautiful Baltimore City, MD. I used that name on baby fit, but it was already taken on here, so I added 10 because my daughter was born in 2010.

On email and stuff I use my maiden name because only people who are directly related to me have that name. When my great grandpa moved from Germany to Canada he changed the spelling in a way that no one else did.

I always seem to have a hard time finding screen names/user ids that aren't already taken, so when I came up with this one, I just stuck with it...for almost everything I sign up for now. The "lil" part is because I'm not all that tall. The "wa" is because I live in Washington, and the "spud" is because I moved here from Idaho. I thought it was a fitting way to show where I am and still hold onto where I came from.

I just went with my initials and last name - manily becasue I didn't think I'd stick with Spark, or honestly, use the message boards when I signed on and it seemed like the easiest way to go. Almost 3 years later, I now wish I had been more creative, but not going to change it now.

It's my screen name for other sites and my other blog personality.

An excuse is just a challenge to figure out how to do something different.

my ID was given to me when I went away to college. I added the 77 for the year I was born because the system wouldn't let me go without the numbers. So, I usually pick between the two screen names for just about anything that I do on the net.

Now, if I can just figure out a cool way to keep passwords for all of the different websites straight. I can't wait for the day of retinal scans so I don't have to try to figure them out anymore.

Start: 286 (6/5/10)
Previous Lowest: 222 (8/31/08)

Goals:
Next Milestone: 222 -12/21/10 reached
Then: 220 by Christmas 2010 (reached 12/31/10)
Then: 207 (reached 2/12/11)
Then: 200 (reached 3/1/2011)
Final: 180 (reached 4/23/2011) - 173 reached on 4/30/11
Currently in reevaluation stage as to next goal

Ha ha, my screen name is a part of my last name that I always thought would be cool to have as a nickname (it has never caught on!) and the numbers are a series that correlate to something that I can remember. I have often thought about changing it...but, I am just to lazy-lol

When I first started using the internet, about 12 years ago, I was trying to create a screen name and everything I thought of was taken. So I found a very old word which loosely means having a large shapely butt (haha, I ironically have zero junk in the trunk) and I purposely misspelled that word which is my username. I figured no one else would come up with the purposeful misspelling. It has remained the same for 12 years. Oddly enough, even though so few people seem to have the same last name as me, it always seems to be taken.

My first screen name when I joined SP was afwife0903 was because I was/am an Air Force wife and that was the month and year my husband joined. A couple of years later I changed it to what it is now since I wanted/needed a new life and I found that back in 2010...

My cat Caesar - also known as Fang Face - passed away in 2009, about the time I had to choose a user name for some site or another. "fangface" was already taken so I tacked a "kitty" on the end and *I* was born. He was my 1st cat and was with me my entire adult life - starting with marriage, 2 kids, 3 moves, and divorce. He actually lasted longer than the husband LOL.

Original SW on 1/1/11 - 204.4 lbs.
Original GW on 9/1/11 - 134.5 lbs
Original GOAL ACHIEVED! 70 lbs. banished!

Time zone: EST

New SW on 1/1/19 - 204, back to the very beginning
New GW by 12/31/20 - 135

Mind the Gap! between what we know we should do and what we actually choose to do.
