My first screen name was OldMom3. My grandkids calls me Old Mom and I love it, but I didn't like others calling me that. When I achieved my goal weight and saw that I was truly maintaining it, it was a dream come true. Reading the grandkids Cinderella, the screen name came to me.
I will admit, though, I want a totally positive screen name. There is a bit of me feeling like Cinderella before the ball with all the housework I'm not crazy about doing. Perhaps I need an even more positive screen name!! I made my bed this morning before my eyes were even open! I am a Flybaby!!

I'm an online gamer and I collect mermaids. Many years ago (20 something) I started playing a game with my ex and needed a user name. It was one of my first experiences with being on the internet and email as well.
Siren = a sort of mermaid but was always taken. Sirennea sounded song like and I ran with it. Since that time Sirennea or some version of it has been my online persona. I nailed it down for my email to and has been my "name" for a few decades now.
I plan on getting a mermaid tattoo someday with "Sirennea" inked around the flow of the tail like water ripples.

I borrowed my username from Rudyard Kipling's "Just So Stories" - The Elephant's Child, my favorite of the stories, is best read aloud because of the rhythmic phrasing, melodic malapropisms and inordinate onomatopoeia. In the story, the elephant's child, filled with "satiable curtiosity", is an annoying creature, who goes around constantly asking What-Why-When-How-Where-Who questions. He gets obsessed by one such question (What does the Crocodile have for dinner?) and set off on a quest to find the answer, nearly gets killed in the process, and returns with a quite unexpected benefit: this is How The Elephant Got His Trunk. If the Elephant's Child actually learns anything valuable from the experience, this is largely thanks to the intervention of the Bi-Coloured-Python-Rock-Snake who (apart from saving his life) asks grounded questions like "Try this" and "Don't you think" and "How do you feel". .... an alternate, yet equally appropriate, username for me would be "Runs With Scissors."

I am 65 but I don't feel old. I've always looked young and no one believed me when I told them my age. Looking young has never been that big a deal to me. When I decided to retire from teaching, I let my hair go "natural" and I like it. I like being old (most of the time) - I've never done it before! Life is about new adventures so I am healthy (and getting healthier), happy and officially old.

SocDirector has been my "handle" for over 15 years.
When I was working f/t in the corporate world, I was the most organized for planning social events. First it started with picking the Friday night Happy Hours hot spots, then it evolved into weekend road trips, winery tours, being captain of sports team, etc.
Because I organized so many social events, someone at one of these gatherings referred to me as Julie McCoy, the Cruise Director. Remember her from "The Love Boat" TV series? I thought that was funny and commented that a cruise was something we hadn't actually done yet. Then someone else in the group said I was more like a "Social Director". It stuck!!
That was right around the time we were moving from an internal messaging system at work to email. I abbreviated the nickname to SocDirector when I created my personal email account. It's now my "handle" for all things on the world wide web.
Though I've left the corporate world and have my own family, I'm now their social director.

We moved to Walnut Grove, MO in 2009 and started a winery in July. My husband's maternal family is from Walnut Grove so most people new him but not me and so some people when I met someone new would say I was the wine lady. Also that Christmas we were asked to play the Mr. & Mrs. Claus in the parade. As we went by one house I heard someone say it's the wine lady. So that is how I became the MOWINELADY.
