We've done this before but it might be interesting to do it again now that we have so many new Beachers.

My real name is Ruth. Way back in the last century when I went to register, there already was a Ruth so I just added xxx to my name. People will say it's because I'm X-rated but don't believe them!

Next?

Mine is a mixture of Eskimo and Nomad. I've lived in three different countries, outside of the US, and 11 states inside the US - and I'm only 19. I decided to go to Alaska for college, and when a friend I've known since we were 10 found out - he called me an Eskinomad, and it stuck

It sounds kind of corny, but I've always yearned to have a cottage by the sea. With the astronomical costs of homes at the shore, alas, it will probably never happen, but a person can dream, can't they?

Everybody's name is so cool. I wish I'd had more imagination back then.

We just love you as Ruthxxx anyway. Over here there is a beer called XXXX but that's because Australians don't know how to spell beer.

I'm named after my gentleman dog Mr SHAD O Cxxxxx

Ko is the beginning of my first name, and Farq is the beginning of my last name. After the wedding I might have to change it to Kofarqhea. I might have to re-think that! (;P)

When I was little, my dad called me a little weasel. Said I could weasel my way out of anything. I thought "weezle" looked cuter so I went with that.

My middle name is Wynn...so "T" is my first initial (tammy), and "B" is my last name initial.

On another site, they thought I was the second of two twins born. Sorry, not that creative!!

WebRover
One who roves or roams the web.
So kinda obvious but it also fits because
I work in the cellular industry, with services relating to roaming.
Some of our international customers call roaming roving.
And it's also a takeoff on watching my daughter a 100 years ago as a Brownie Girl Scout playing Red Rover at camp.
All that stirred around makes me WebRover.
