My first question is Why does my hard disk drive recognition take too long at the boot Medifast menu? Looking forward for any answer or 2. My 2nd question... I was wondering why you (all) chose the name you chose here at DS? Now most of you are all brutally honest (see Starfisher "changing Meds") if you don't think so!.

I'd just love to know why you guys picked the names you post by..

As for me, my son (Brett) has a friend who started calling me "DoubleB" for affectionate reasons I'm sure, but when I swelled to over 300lbs if sort of grew on me. So while I was lurking here at DS to see if I wanted to try and make a stand I was torn between my usual name. Of course I usually go by "Lucifer", obviously! But I didn't want to frighten all you ladies away and my standby "insOmniac", well let's just say that was appropriate in my drug and alcohol abuse days (enough said)!.

So I chose DoubleB and glad I made DS my home!.

No fun stories for mine either :( my name is Nicole Marie and I was born in 1972...hence nicolemarie72. Boring, I know, but I'm not very creative. My nickname is Hollywood, but I tried so many variations and they are all taken :(..

Comment #10

My name is Karla...and my friends have always called me Kar......back in the day when I was a teen partyin it up my friends took to calling me Auto instead of Kar....

When I was creating my email address years ago...every variation of Kar was taken....so was every variation of Auto...so I simply put the two together...it stuck and is now my username almost everywhere....

This has been an interesting thread...its kinda neat to know how people came about their names...thanks for starting it Brett..

Comment #11

Mine is just my first name, Becky(Rebecca), and my age, 63. Well.

Actually, I'm 63 and 1/2 now. Birthday coming up in June!.

But I'm also known as " Freena" by many of my friends. This comes from many years ago, when as kids we used to watch the "Our Gang" comedies on TV. It was made in the 40's I think; Spanky, Darla, Alfalfa, Buckwheat, etc. were some of the characters. There was also a kid called "Farina". My brother started calling me that , sort of to tease me, and over the years it morphed into "Freena", or "Freen", for short.



It's come in handy as a user name for the computer, as most of the combinations of my real name were already taken! So, that's my story!.

Happy Holidays everyone! Blessings of the season to all!..

Good morning..

When I was very young, I was kidnapped by space aliens and taken to the Beta Jerramoid star system where I was taught the ways of the Naku and eventually returned to Earth as part of Unit 632 Sleeper Cell. At the same time, I was paired with Maki-Maki, my quasi coporeal companion from the 26th dimension. The two of us were given our mission assignment of watching Brett and Andy. From that point forward, my friends called me Jerry. Also, my.

Surgery.

Was on Oct 7, thus adding "1007". Besides, Jerry has more letters than Tim and I suffer from chronic letter envy...

Comment #16

I chose my name because it used to be my car license when I had a Honda CRV, and my grandkids all call me Nana, hence Crvnana. Real name is Diane, too boring!..

From 2004 to Spring of this year, I was extremely agoraphobic. Lots of problems: panic attacks, anxiety, etc. It was so bad I couldn't even go out in my yard for more than 15 minutes, and I missed Weddings, parties, funerals, and family gatherings. So for a long time, my user and email name was homegal because that's where I stayed..

I had GBS in Feb this year, and the confidence and.

While working as a service tech for Southern Bell I repeately got asked if I was "Ma Bell". 30 years later and a little ageing made it more acceptable and somewhat appropriate.I wanted to use mabelle as my ebay name but it was taken...therefore maabelle...with the extra "a". It just seemed natural to use it here also...
