Default Screen-names

I'm curious about folks screen names-

My name is Patricia Webster, folks I used to work with all called me Web, (or Webster, or webbo, you know) . . . then I met this little girl, not yet 2, learning to talk- Quincee couldn't say -'web', when she tried it came out 'Hub" . . . and it stuck.

So what's your story?

Default Screen Name

We had a blonde cocker spaniel named Tyler. He also answered to to Pooter and Pooterdog. Since he was Pooter, I am, naturally, Pootersdad.

When I first starting using my screen name I was a busy mom of two, full time law student, full time government employee and my husband was living and working in the USA. I had too little time to get anything done, it didn't take long to realize my handle fits me perfectly.

Well, I've told the story before, but anyway, I'm a pilot, and many years ago I owned a Cessna 336 "SkyMaster". It's an unusual airplane, and there aren't many around so the guys who worked at the airport where I kept it "we call 'em "ramp rats" started calling me "SkyMaster". It stuck, and I only wish I could live up to the name.

I too have told this story before, before a cruise in '05 I had purchased a Dodge p/u and the color was Atlantic Blue - and I had told the saleswoman that I was going on a cruise and where, etc. So she dubbed me Bahama-momma. And to this day when we speak on the phone she doesn't call me by my given name of Cathy, it's always Bahama-momma!!!

Before I learned how to use a computer and became addicted to it and to CruiseMates, my passion in life was rollerskating. So when it came time to pick a username, "rollerdonna" seemed a perfect fit.
Someone on here once assumed my nickname meant I had rollers in my hair, but I set her straight with this photo from my past:

I own two cats Elwood and Charlie (named for Charlie Chaplin) and when I played in a football pool I was Krazy Katlady, now it's just katlady.


The dogs are a little sad about the name. But doglady doesn't sound quite as good.

Mine is simple. No, I don't wear a 4x, I just have 4 children and am very busy. In fact a neighbor asked what my job was, and I told her I stay home with the kids. My husband travels constantly for his job as a contractor with the Navy, so it is completely up to me to take care of everything and we have no family closer than 9 hours away. So she couldn't believe I didn't have a full-time job other than the kids because I am never home! I just spend all my time volunteering at the kids 3 different schools and also at church. That leaves me able to handle all the things that come up at the last minute. So, I am fourxbusymom!

Mine is self-descriptive! I have been accused of not caring where I was going, just as long as I was going! Whenever someone said "Let's go," I could be 5 miles down the road, before asking where or for how long!

When I found Cruisemates I was ANXIOUSLY awaking my next cruise. "I'm ready to go nooooow" was the refrain that kept going through my mind, hence....

I don't have any neat things for my username. It's just my first name and my last initial.

I guess I'm just boring.

When I first came on the board, before I became a part of Cruisemates, I was M&M. That was about eight years ago.

Take care,
Mike

For me, it's the name of my husband's printing company...

Tri~ Pearl Printing... tri for the 3 Pearl men, [my 2 sons and hubby] who print.... The name, over the years got shortened to, Trip, and I have been called Triplet by some......

Trust me when I say, this name came about back in 96, when, he set up the computer, I would have chosen a sparkly, blingy girly name;)

I do have another AOL sn, which is, Cruise Yenta:):)

A handle- that's a blast from the past!

Any other old CB radio folks?

Any other fans of Smokey & the Bandit?

My CB Handle used to be Daytripper= like the Beatles song
