    why did you choose your user name?

    i was just thinking, after a fun conversation with Molly caff, about my user name and hers and wondered how others chose theirs. My first cat as an adult ( i was typing responsible adult there and backspaced out of honesty!) was a beautiful pale gray, ginger and white regal lady cat called daisy. She was a great friend to me for 19 years through thick and thin. She had a very high opinion of herself with which i totally agreed but my she was vain. i called her the Divine Daisy when she was in this mood (which was often) and when it came to deciding what to call myself online i chose my nickname for her. It makes me smile and think of her very often.

    When i had my babies...my eldest is 30 this year, Daisy obviously considered i couldnt do this without her help. She used to catch mice and spit them out in the baby's cot. ok...... not the best thing for a baby but she was helping to feed them in her mind and i always remembered to thank her as i quickly removed the said dead mouse lol.

    So........ Divine Daisy... heres to you old girl. i know you would sleep on my sewing and annoy me if you were here but..it might be worth it eh?

    What about others? any good stories about your user name?

            Our one and only (so far) Grandchild is 1/2 asian and we started out referring to me as Lola trying to keep the 2 Grandmas and the 1 Great Grandma easy for him to remember as he gets older......he has since re-named me Nana and I use Ace as a nickname for him, so Lola2Ace I am. Marebear I think that is a very special name for you, well, all of the names are special!

                My oldest girl is Mary-we called her Marybear when she was little.

                My user name, not too creative-I work as a baker and i'm a mom. Wanted something simple that i would remember.

                    I had a sewing business before moving to London and Rebeccas-sewing! was the name of my business. It's supposed to be a play on words. Great question, Daisy! I've often wondered about some of the names our friends are using.

                          Mimi, you don't look old enough to have gran kid the size of those beautiful twins.

                          My name....you guessed it.... I like to watch the loons at the lake. And I thought it would be unique enough to not have to add numbers, but NOT!

                            Love this question, Divine! Your Daisy must have been a 'real cool cat'. It is so interesting to read how the quilters got their user name. It makes me feel like I know them even better now! I chose Meemeecyn as my grandgirls call me Meemee...the oldest started to put an accent on the second mee so we decided to spell it this way. cyn comes from my real name Cynthia. It is so neat to read about all your imaginative thinking!
                            (Mimi...Nancy is right...you must have been 10 when you had the twins parent!!!! Cute name, too!)
