My childhood nicname was "Bug". It stuck my whole life with all but mostly my father. I never heard him call me by my real name, Tina. It was Bug, Buggy, or even Bugith. Even in public places. Pretty funny sometimes. (man, I miss him) When he died, my nicname died with him. I use it here in honor of him.
T for Tina + Bug = TBug

When I first got a computer (not that long ago), I came up with"rollerdonna "because "rollermama" was already taken. At the time, I was much more into rollerskating than cruising, having only cruised once. Now I am a cruise veteran, and haven't skated for over 2 years! My skating buddy and I have been missing it lately, and have vowed to go back to it - when we are not so busy!
Here's a photo of me on my 21st birthday with my brand new skates. I have been skating for a l-o-n-g time!
Location: Near Liz's favourite home, Windsor Castle, Berkshire, U.K.
Hi Maureen Laura here,
I won't go into graphic detail how I chose my CM name - but suffice to say that last year during our Victory cruise, we went on a fantastic tour of St. Thomas with one of the locals (just 4 of us - our US friends and ourselves) and he started singing some of the local songs with us to sing-along-to during the afternoon whilst we had a tour of the whole island.
One of them had a verse ' calling for Kim' which I am sure if you start singing it to yourself you will realise why I cannot go into graphic detail.
Anyway, we were rolling around in stitches and the name Kimmiegirl just popped out from that.
Hope I didn't embarrass/offend anybody by my little story - sorry if I have but it is where my little alias comes from. I also chose tht name as I know my friends do surf this Forum sometimes and they would know who was posting.
The original Cheshire Cat from Chester, England.
No rocket science here. I live in Alabama and graduated college from the University of Alabama whose nickname is the Crimson Tide and mascot is the elephant. My avatar shows an official University mascot. For you college football fans, I entered school one year after Joe Namath left for the NY Jets and Kenny ( Snake ) Stabler was our quarterback.
Like many of you, I'm not too original..CA Cruiser=California Cruiser but I did recently change my license plate to LV2BATC which means Love to be at SEA!!! I got the idea from someone s/n here on CM. I also had it put it on the one with a whale tail. I get a lot of cool comments regarding it too and meet some nice people.

When I originally came on the boards I was M&M. That was a long time ago. I am now "the establishment", and have no originality. I now just go with my first name the initial of my last name. I am still completely addicted to cruising.
