    Red, this is so funny. I was coming into work this morning thinking <<I was able to think becuz no cell phones :lol>> of a thread like this one this morning.

    when i logged in the first time, what was it? about a year or so ago, I wanted just my name but it was taken, I tried one or two more, finally I decided when I signed up for Prodigy (remember prodigy!?! :lol ) They gave me some suggested names, and this was one of the names. <<gosh. Prodigy goes back to the late 80's>>

    So I hit this one, and it wasn't taken. Nothing special, but it works.

    My name is Denise. My sister called me Niecie when we were little and she couldn't pronounce Denise. Our last name begins with a Z so I became nieciez. I use it on all the boards, cruise and otherwise that I visit.

    The liscense plate on my car, cruiseship wouldn't fit N.Y. plates. Why Cruzship? Its an old (93) well used Caddy Sedan Deville, and it floats like a boat. Near 165k miles. I feel as though I live in it sometimes...it fits me perfect...I cant kill it...When I move to AZ I'll sell it as a condo :)

    Camelia Guest

    Camelia is the name of one of my cats, that disappeared soon after I discovered this board and picked a - or her - name. I still think about her when I sign in, wondering what happened. Camelia, the cat, got her name because all our female cats are named after flowers, and we have lots of camelia trees in our yard.

    I am so unimaginative... I used my first name and the last two digits of my childhood zip code.

    The name of our biz was "Megamind Electronics" before we closed it. So, clear back 10 or so years it has been Megamind. Although, some days its, Nevermind.

    JAT Guest

    Besides the fact that I am woefully uncreative and couldn't come up with anything else, my dad used to have dreams of me playing football and being called JAT (my initials) on the field. Poor dad; I never could play football :lol !

    Red, you started this...why Red Stripe?

  13. Being a child of the late 70's my child hood memories are all from the 80s. Usually I go for a starwars related login, but wanted something different this time around. Transformers have been big again during the last few years, and were my favorite 22 minute advertisments and toys when I was younger. I like the Autobots...think it would be cool to be one....and came up with Autobotwannabe!

    snowball Guest

    Snowball is the name of one of my dogs. She is a white shepherd mix, and is a very loving, if somewhat goofy animal. A while back I just got into the habit of using her name for different things since it is easy to remember.

    Sometimes people think that Snowball is my name because I like the snow, but actually dislike the cold and spend my winters counting the days until spring arrives.

    red stripe Guest

    Because when I first came to the internet I had heard stories of the dangers to women from "stalkers".. :lol
    So I thought I would choose a name that did not give away my gender..
    It worked very well, as most people thought I was a guy for a few years until I "unveiled" :grin

    I often think back to that time, and marvel at the change in attitude in people who think they are talking to a guy... :lol
     
  17. I write and produce plays and I am a designer also. I was looking for a name for my business and came up with "ICHELLEBEREEL" Chelle is part of my first name (Rochelle) and reel represents movies. One other motto I use is that "I may not be right, but I shall be real!
