I asked this question on the forum about 12 months ago and there where some very interesting answers.

There have been so many new members joined since I asked then that I thought it was worth asking again.

So, why do you use the username you are using? smile

I'll go first again for the new members that have never seen the original post.

My username is Ferret because I have a number of ferrets running around house 24/7. It can get 'interesting' at times.

Seen it all. Done it all. Can't remember most of dunno ..... What was I saying???? facepalm

My last name ends in stone > I have always had dogs. > Thus > StoneDog

In my next life, if I have to repeat on this rock, I hope to come back as a dog.

I will be loyal, I will protect , and always be pleasant and playful. And  just sort of lay around and wait for my keeper to feed me at least once a day.

Well if you do a search for 1stimestar, you will see I am all over the internet.  Don't get it confused with 1strimester.  That's a common mistake because I am a doula (in the childbirth field).  I've used this username for 16 years on message boards.  I started using it when I became pregnant with my first child at the ripe ol' age of ...more then 30.  I am the second oldest out of a family of 5 girls.  ALL of my sisters, even my youngest one, had kids before I did.  I was too busy running around the country/world having fun and seeing the sites.  Then I settled down to go to college and planned my kiddo to arrive 3 months after graduating college.  I can honestly say that when I called my family to tell them I was pregnant I felt like a STAR!  Everyone made such a big deal out of it (as I had always told them I would never settle down long enough to have kids). 


Opportunity is often missed because it wears suspenders and looks like hard work.

I must admit that unlike most of you my screen name is actually meaningless.  The only connection to soma that I have is from reading "Brave New World" in junior high school!

Laserbrainz is my attempt to represent my love of Star Wars in a non-obvious way, while also avoiding having a professional sounding name. I have a seldom used anymore blog titled You Rebel Scum, which I like, but yourebelscum looks weird all lumped together (I think). In a scene from A New Hope, Leia calls Han "laser brains", so I decided to use that when making a username for another site, but it was already taken so I had to throw the Z in there like a doofus at the end. But now it's my go-to username basically everywhere.

Well, this is the first time I have ever used any part of my name for a username as normally I use either MLDnumnum or NumberBoxGamer, both of which I have used for over 7 years through different online games and such. 

CameronLG though is just my first name followed by my middle and last initials.

Stop saying you can't do it and actually go try it... Trust me it works.

Mine is pretty easy. I want you to know my real name.

H stands for Hubert, which I don't use much out of respect for my grandfather. I don't like his name being made fun of.

Duane is my middle name.

az represents the state I live in.

Mine has do to with noise I made when I was first learning play. After 2 years I should probably change it to sounds-a-little-better-now.

I have a hard time remembering login names and passwords so my screen name is pretty self explanatory New Fiddler Girl......


drooling After working all day as a quality engineer, I usually come home drooling, babbling and incoherent. So the KISS principle works for my alter ego. Playing violin has been a lifelong desire and fortunately because of that desire, has been a way to unwind and have fun with the other side of my brain.

'Tis a gift to come down where we ought to be,
And when we find ourselves in the place just right,

gwscheer     just my initials and last name  not creative but easy; I'll save creativity for the music.    @StoneDog, since you are so connected to dogs I recommend you read Suspect by Robert Crais.  Best attempt at describing canine thought I've run across. gary

Have you read Investigations of a Dog, by Kafka?
