My son lives with his Dad and when he was young was going to make his email digitalmitchell but decided it was too long so shortened it to digimitch. I thought it would be cute to make an email with digimom which I did, and then he went and made "commando" something...I couldn't be bothered to change to keep up lol so...Digimom stuck as my email and I've been using it as my username ever since
This is really a very funny thread...
I loved reading all the stories about your usernames.
Mine seems quite boring compared to all yours. My husband calls me "muis" (I love it when he calls me "muis", it's so sweet) which means "mouse". Quite some years ago I needed a password but "muis" didn't have enough characters and the website proposed muis01 to me. So I am using this username for a few years now.
Told you... now very exciting story!
Well mine is some what easy but not quite. Luckygrower is not because I'm a lucky grower so to speak but because I seem to very lucky in finding orchids for very low prices but also for being lucky to keep them alive after purchase and getting them to rebloom.
Mine is just too easy to figure out. Mine was given to me by my mom when I was born. No mystery there.
Everyone kept saying their names were easy to figure out....like me. the funny part is that for every explanation that seemed obvious to us, was actually pretty interesting to everyone else. I found everyones' stories very interesting. Remember the old days, when you signed online that awful screech noise the puter made until you learned how to turn that speaker off!!!
Great idea for this one!
You do have the luck on your sideI seem to very lucky in finding orchids for very low prices but also for being lucky to keep them alive after purchase and getting them to rebloom.
my first and middle names begin with n and t, respectively
(in my country all our middles names from our mother's maiden name, just a tidbit here...)
my family name's first letters are gerald
no mystery here
I must say this has been one of the most interesting and enjoyable threads....learning something about the faces behind our chids....I LOVE IT!
I have family in Estes Park, Colorado and have spent a great deal of time on the alpine tundra, both there and here in the Northeast. I love flowers of all kinds, but particularly love alpine flowers, which demonstrate incredible tenacity, resilience, and strength in a very challenging environment (as do many orchids -- ahh the wonders of evolution). The alplily is one of my favorites. It is not one of the showiest, but reveals graceful beauty to those that take time to look closely (I guess I can identify with that!). As the saying goes, bloom where you are planted...
