Mine is from a childhood nickname - butter fingers. My mom used to call me that because I couldn't catch a ball to save my life! emoticon

Mine was my log on for my work computer for years. We were in District 54 back when we were organized into Districts, so our log on was our first two initials and the first 4 letters of our last name followed by our District number. We all use a randomly assigned group of characters now as a log on, and we aren't organized in Districts anymore, but I still remember the old log on.

Mine is a childhood nickname. This is my 3rd name on SparkPeople! I'm sticking with this one, I swear!

MAE are my initials--I started abbreviating my name to MAE in college when I would leave messages for my friends and found it took too much time/space to write my full name, and if I abbreviated with ME, people got confused because they didn't know who "me" was supposed to be. I have continued this abbreviation and now whenever something needs to be signed at work, or I leave notes for co-workers, they are always signed MAE (and in return, I get notes addressed to MAE).

"4181" is a date with sentimental importance to me.

Mine is a twist on one of my real names, the first part of which is a long story & that's all I'm sayin' (& don't you tell, Stephanie MorrisDatter!!!) ... emoticon

“Cowardice asks the question, 'Is it safe?' Expediency asks the question, 'Is it politic?' But conscience asks the question, 'Is it right?' And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but because conscience tells one it is right.” ~Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Jet is what my brother called me when he was little and couldn't quite get out Jeanette. Everybody wants you to have a nickname, so when pressed, I'll give them Jet, rather than be called Jenny, Jeanie, Jean, etc. Grr.
150 is the weight I'd like to be, although considering my progress for well over a year now perhaps it should be changed to jet150inmydreams...

Mine is a nickname. Everything else I chose was taken. I didn't realize when I chose it that there are Spark Coaches. I had never been on a social network before and it was a while before I started to do any chatting. A while longer before I figured out that people might mistake me for a Spark Coach, so rather than try to think up a new moniker at such a late date, I just explain I'm not a "Coach".

Well, it could have been okay but the final straw was when I got an email from a teammate who was hitting on me! That was the day I changed my screen name.

I know how you hate to confuse people LCB, but that would have been a riot!
I had never chatted before or belonged to a site like this and I weighed 257 pounds and didn't want anyone from my past to see that (!) so, since my heritage is Norwegian and I'd been lost in the vortex of genealogy forever, it seemed right to call myself Morrisdatter, which would have been my last name, had I been born in Norway years and years ago to Morris. Daughter of Morris. That do be me. But there have been those who called me MOrris and it curled my toes - mostly conservatives who just don't know nothing for nothing. (just had to check to see which team I was answering this in. OK I can leave it.)

My original screen name had the initials L.C.B. so I just changed it to ElsieBee. I changed it because the last word was "Bob." I'd used this name for years and years--which didn't matter at all on political boards but I found out that on this site, it matters because we talk about personal issues. It confused people when someone they thought was a male talked about menopausal issues.

Mine is my old ivillage name. I wanted Ladyirish (of course), but it was already taken. So I added 317 for the date of St. Patrick's Day, 3/17.
