How You Choose Your Login Name

Mine is pretty self-explanatory! When I joined, I had seen SO many physicians. Not much has changed, I guess. With the exception that I finally gave one of neurologists a piece of my mind. Felt great. I received a notification of a certified letter from them shortly after that. I figure he's trying to "fire" me, so I didn't pick it up. If I pay him to take care of me, then I'm going to fire him. Especially since he botched a diagnosis recently.

After our Las Vegas adventure, Metta began calling me "Wheelie" . . . . . for a number of reasons! :lol: Was going to change my name then, but then had to see more physicians. Still tired of doctors!

Mine is based on the same idea as Tiffany's; I just have a much shorter name than she does. It's my first initial followed by my surname. Obviously, I'm not terribly worried about somebody guessing my complete name. I used it as an ID on computers long before the internet. If you google it, you will get buried by hits about a retired history professor in England. No relation.

Oh my gosh Peter, if you Google my old name, or my real name you will come up with a porn star and quite the busy girl she was in the 70's and 80's......This would not be me.

Gee, I did the search. You mean you didn't pose for Playboy? I'm disappointed--maybe :lol:

A funny thing happened to me many years ago. I was in the waiting room at the dentist's office. (The dentist in question retired about 15 years ago.)

The dental technician called for "Mr Sawyer." I stood up, but so did another man in the waiting room. Looking puzzled, she clarified: "Mr Peter Sawyer." We each took a step forward. She refined the name again, by middle initial, and that resolved the question. But on that morning, both Peter D Sawyer (me) AND Peter L Sawyer (no relation) had appointments with the same dentist on the same day. I asked the dentist if he got confused, and he said no, our names may be similar, but our teeth are definitely not.

Small world: In my computer consulting business, I have a client in Montreal. I was there two weeks ago, and he invited me to his home where I met his father. Turns out his father worked for a Canadian government agency which I recognized. I said they used to be a customer of mine in a former life, and that my brother's wife's father had worked there. Well, would you believe that my client's father and my sister-in-law's father worked in the same area and knew each other. Small world.

we had a conversation about this at work, and how it may be becoming advantageous to be able to successfully google yourself (only finding relatively positive things, of course), particularly when trying to change jobs. anonymity may now be a less that desired thing.

google me, and you get hits to a sterling silver spoon and a gymnast, mostly. :P my maiden name finds me, but my married name is waaaaaaaaay too common.

I chose mine, not knowing that it was a cat food brand at the time, because I love cats. But, actually I love all animals, especially four-legged ones. Also, for several courses I had to learn plants and animals by their full scientific names, which is the reason for felidae instead of something more common. They were my favourite courses.

fajitas are good. I like 'em. I like to make 'em - I like to eat 'em. Mmmmmm ... fajitas. I don't see myself as a fajita - it has nothing to do with my job - nothing to do with anything, really. Maybe I was eating fajitas when I signed up? I really don't know. Maybe I had a dream about fajitas. It's easy to type the word fajitas ... maybe that's why. Fajitas are spicy just like me? No, that's not it. Although, there may be some chicken reference in there somewhere that applies to me. I don't know why. I've contemplated changing my login, but there's not really a good enough reason to contact admin, so for now, I'll have to stick with fajitas - and that's okay with me.

My family likes to play laser tag (kind of like paint ball without the pain) and this is the name I use for my "code name".

Lisa - My youngest son has a name that can be either a boy's or girl's name. If you were to google him, he would come up as a porn star. This is how we ended up with strong parental controls and filters on our computer!


Liz

Started Specific Carbohydrate Diet on 8-16-09 because son was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis and want to give him moral support.

Diagnosed with Minimal Change Nephrotic Syndrome in 2003. Discovered that going completely gluten-free put me in remission.

I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Psalms 27:13

Mine is a name that recently came about in the last couple years but grew from my original name online...

When I first went online and found this lovely little world I used ladistef... a combo of first initials of myself and hubby #1 and part of my last name way back then.

I became attached to that name even after getting rid of hubby #1 I kept the online name, its one of the few things I kept from that horror in my life (lol)

I moved away got a new job and have now changed it to what you see now.

I get the "loco" from my job, I am a locomotive engineer (yes I drive trains for a living, lol)

and the "ladi" is now more of a reminder of what I went thru to get where I am now, plus I am a girl so it kinda fits as well


Just my .00000002 cents worth

If I knew what I was doing years ago I would have half a clue today!

Ah ha- you cheeky monkey! How dare you hide your TRUE profession from us :P ? My name is because i like Bernese Mountain Dogs, but now that I have a dog that's not a Bernese, but a handsome little fellow nonetheless, it still works because I LOVE mountains and dogs!
