Default Why did you choose your user name?

I saw this on the WLS board and thought it would be fun to do here.

I'm in love with the name Brooklyn... For as long, as I've been going online, that's been my screen name..

I was going to name my first girl (when I finally have kids) Brooklyn, but now I think i've over used it...

Well, mine is pretty obvious, but it did come from a real moment. One night in bed, right before sleep, I was talking to my partner and putting myself down for being fat. She wanted to make me feel better, and said something like, "Honey, there's just more of you to love." Needless to say, while I loved her for being sweet, it did NOT make me feel better at all......so my goal became to remain just as lovable -- and just as much "ME" ...... just a smaller Sarah. So, less of Sarah, to love just as much!

Aprylcadabra

Apryl is my name. Yes, aprYl. Apryl. Apryl with a "y" (Anyone sense a pet peeve? Beacuse... April IS NOT my name. )

So, Apryl... and then from "Abracadabra" comes the -cadabra

Mine is my first name which I would love to just be howie. Howerver there are a few Howies on the web that think the same way. So I always put my birth day after my name. I could have been just Howie here but I like to try and use the same name everywhere. That way if you see my name soemwhere else you will know it's me.

I was not to creative when I picked mine. nasus-susan backwards and I was 40 when I joined. I have started to build on it though with QueenNasus and GoddessNasus for email addys and then I went a step further with the goddess part and tried to start a business named Balqis (notice no u ) it is the name of the queen of sheba who to me was a goddess ofserving herself. This was a weight loss support group in myarea that people did not want to join there was not enough start up money and too manyb established places to do it with!! so it is still a name I use and hope to get back up again but yes names are a fun thing to do.

Mine is silly. It's a pet name that my husband started calling me while we were dating in high school. Boiaby is just a funny way to pronounce baby (boy-be). The whole thing was boiaby puppy, though I'm not sure why, so I just shortened it to boiaby and now I always use it as my username/screen name.

when I got my yahoo e-mail years ago I needed something I wanted something original. I worked at wal-mart before that and there was one woman who stocked overnight and every time she saw me said I looked just like a barbie. Of course I always said I'm more of the politically correct barbie since I was overweight even then but it still felt nice to be called barbie all the same. So anyway back to yahoo. I tried barbiegirl and it was taken, barbygirl gone as well so I decided to just add 43 to the end of it. Why 43 you ask? Well it's really silly but that was the football jersey number of the guy I had a huge crush on from 7th grade to my freshman year in college and it's just stuck ever since.

Like the others if you see a barbygirl43 somewhere, then chances are it's me.
