Light hearted post...how did you choose your screen name?

Hi Everyone,


Freqflyer start this post about 5 years ago. The topic was closed so decided to start it again as it seemed like a light hearted way for everyone to get to know each other. I will go first....


My screen name Dusti22 is my nickname plus numbers. I got my nickname the first time I rode a cutting horse. He went one way and I went the other. (Never happened again as I was ready the next time.) Anyway I came up looking like a dust ball and my nickname, Dusti, stuck. My real name is Shannon.


Y'all have a great day!

I'm boring,, when asked for a log in I just used what I do a lot.. my name! Or part of it, and my job... I don't really worry about any of my family "stalking" me,, they all know me and I say on here what I say in reality! Of course, the only family I have CG problems with are the ILs,, and even though I offered this site as a resource,, they would never come here.. don't need any advise... LOL

I have a much loved, rescue donkey named Buddy. He listens to me no matter the subject. He stands patiently when I cry on his neck. He becomes curious when I sing. He brays excitedly (accompanied by loud, stinky toots) when he sees me coming to his stable. He loves to give kisses. He is always a perfect gentleman when I clean his hooves. The farrier says Buddy is the most special donkey he has ever worked with. I believe God sent Buddy to me to give me something special to love and care for during the hideous times (past, present and future) associated with being a dementia caregiver. "Longears" is a nickname for donkeys.

Polarbear - my favorite stuffed animal that I had since college. Shamelessly sleep hugging it every night ever since.

I love Sendme name origin. Wish I had that one.
Mine is rather boring as I am not creative enough to come up with something clever. As sleepless in Oklahoma didn't sound good. Or, WhatintheworldamItodo was way too long. HowdoIdothiswell didn't work. Lordhelpmetodowhatyouwantmeto.
So Smeshque is the first letter of my first name and the first seven letters of may 14 letter last name. Native American.
So sorry not that exciting but I love how you all chose yours.

From the time I was pre-school, I loved going to the library to look at pictures in the books. I remembered making up stories to match the pictures. … By middle school, I was trying to read all the books in the library. In high school, I read all the books in our small library (westerns, sci-fi, romance, mystery, horror, autobiography, biography, UFO's, Bermuda Triangles, etc...) I skipped lunch so that I can use my lunch money to buy used books at the flea market. Once I had a job, when I used to order brand new hard cover books, after I was done reading it, I would donate it to our local library- so that others can enjoy it, too.

I have Always carried a book with me - paperback, hardcover or my electronic tablet. You will always find me reading a book while in line at the bank/Post Office/store , or eating by myself at a restaurant. I have always loved books since I was around 5 years old.

Some 25 years ago my friend and I used to call ourselves Mabel and Madge - I think I joined A/C shortly after she passed much too soon

Although my Irish dad wanted to name me after Maureen O'Hara, the Viking insisted on a name of Scandinavian origin

My only child, my son - has sever Autism. Over the years I’ve called him my own little Rainman. You know, like the movie. Me, being his mom - I guess that makes me Rainmom. Plus, Ive always been into movies - even as a child when they were my only escape from my dysfunctional parents and home life.
