    I did this once on another forum and it was fun to see what drove people to choose their avatar name. :)

    On this site it's a little different as some are self explanatory. But - maybe theres more to it then that!?

    So - what inspired you to choose your name?

    I'll start!

    Well, as you know, I am blonde. And I have heard, and loved, my share of blonde jokes. Not that they are a good representation mind.

    OVer the years, as me and my husband have gotten to know one another, on many more the one occassion, he has been sat shaking his head with a grin and a question mark. :D

    SOmetimes I try to explain things in my, erm, own way, and sometimes they do make sense. To me. But apparently not others! LOL So he says.

    I told him once, about my shopping (rather topical at the moment anyway! ;))....and my use of credit cards.

    I told him not to look at the boots as expensive - for heaven sakes, don't look at the price! Look at the monthly PAYMENT. THey are not $200, they only $25 a month! :D

    The famous head shaking, and he told me, "you do use your own blonde logic, don't you!" ANd from that point on, the name stuck!

    So - how were YOU born? :D

    Mine comes from way way back in college. Because my name is spelled Tanja and apparently this is rather different to the usual Tanya or Tania. My friends came up with Tangerine Dream, don't ask me how that happened or how they figured that out(probably phonetically). Since then its been Tange or when Mandi is around its still Tangerine Dream.
    I think they were a dodgy German 70's rock band or something :rotflmao:

    Mine started off as Angelwytch three million years ago for different forums and it got shortened to Wytchy by loads of other people. It was my email address for years too. Angelwytch are an old rock band so that's where the name comes from originally cos I was a bit of a rock chick! Wytchy prob suits me a lot better now cos I adore all things Wiccan/Pagan and that's what my belief is. So there you go!! Glad you asked now aren't you? hee hee;)

    Think mine's self explanatory. Not a lover of shopping and crowds, so have been known to lose it sometimes (crowded supermarkets in particular; oh and Christmas shopping). What's known in my family as Jane's Red Mist descending! Lost count of the times I've gone Xmas shopping in town, given up and stomped off to the pub muttering (bah! humbug!) instead and watched through the windows the madness that is Christmas shopping, whilst chillin' out with a rejuvenating beverage!

    Trouble is, I'd usually end up going home empty handed; you know how it is, girly chats, few drinks, maybe a bite to eat, few more drinks and before you know it all the shops have closed so we may as well have another cheeky one!

    Beats shopping any day!

    appropriate name for me

    Mine came to me in a whirl!!
    I was looking at this site and thinking "how does everyone come up with such good names?" - and it came to me in a
    flash. Slenda is what I'd like to be and blenda is what we do with the shakes. The mis-spelling makes it a bit more zappy and it's easy to say.
    I like it!
    I'm okay with words, but rubbish with technology - hence the ticker not updated and lack of photos - oh well......:pcwhack:

    Nickname my Grandad gave me as a child - my cousin was Linda Louise and he called her Linda Lou-ski and when I came along Carol Anne became Carol Anne-ski. I've just run it all together to make Carolanski. Carol and Carol Anne are always taken on every forum!

    M&D shortened it even further and still occasionally call me Anski or Ansk. Quite bizarre - however better than bruv's nickname - Chops!

    While I was in my first year of university (many moons ago lol!) there was a song in the charts called 'Bad babysitter' by a girl called 'Princess Superstar' - I thought her name was brill, catchy spoilt and drama queenish!! So I wanted to have it for my email address, but alas, it was already taken.... so I had to think of an alternative... and I often got told that I was sweet so I came up with SweetySuperstar!! And I have used it online ever since! But don't know if the sweet thing was more like a 'she's fat so I can't say anything about her looks, I'll say she has a good personality instead'!!!!
