My name is Ginger, but for some reason when dh and I got together his best friend called me Gidget. Now dh just calls me Ginge or Gidge. I only use it on boards I dont want others following me to from more mainstream boards. My username on other boards is a bit more unique and easier to google. But I really dont care about being found on those boards. This one is my sanctuary.
HI, I just joined today. I figured I would start at the top, and post how I got my name. Mercury is my middle name, so when we first got internet, years ago, I used it. It has just stuck. I usually have some variation on it, but it always is mercury*something*. Pretty boring story. SORRY!
Mine is my oldest nickname. My family is really goofy and consistently so with nicknames. It came in part from my middle name - Christine and an alleged inability of my younger self to pronouce said name.
My name came from my ds. His name is Max, his middle name is William (thus the "will" part) and his birthday is December 9th. Not too creative. I guess I should have tried to fit my dd in somehow, but oh well!
My name is Jennifer. My daughter's name is Jillian. I started going to message boards for information on raising her, support from other moms, etc, so it seemed natural to include her name in there too!
I choose OnTheFence because I thought it was a good description of my balance between ap/nfl and mainstream. I am sure by most I am considered more mainstream here, but IRL, I am probably considered more crunchy.
