I did Molecular Genetics in University (and afterwards), so I chose GenomicsGirl for all of my online stuff. Genomics is basically the sturdy of genes and their products. I mutated genes to get them to function differently (better or worse) depending on the gene and the specific disorder of interest.

Mine is so not creative I think I've used it forever! It's my first name, middle initial and last initial. I'm so not a creative person.
I've searched myself and its crazy how many posts I can find. I've beens on forums for 7.5 years with the same name.

nancybotwin- love it, and will always be classic.

Mine is a mix of my kids names. Anna Zeda, Zobey, Hollis. "AZEDAZOBOLLIS" But then we have "Wednesday Heylia Jane"- (also a tribute to a Weeds character hahahaha), as our newest addition.

Christine. Unschooling mom to Hollis, Zobey, Zeda, Anna, and Wednesday. We have a lot invested in this whole family thing with marriage kids and a mortgage. You don't just give up on the whole deal when it gets difficult.

I have a joint disorder that loosens my joints. The technical term for what happens is subluxation, but when I got my first screenname (age 13ish) I figured dislocator would make more sense. 39 is a number that sort of follows me around and 72 was my then boyfriend's football number. lol, It's just weird enough that it's always available so I always use it. 11 years now.

Ha! I love it. Its neat seeing where these things come from.

Mine is from highschool and follows me around!

Grumpy - I got it in highschool from my friend. I hated school and was told I was always grumpy - so she took to calling me Grumpy! So I had it etched on my last year book. I left school and went to work in an office, and one of the girls had a nickname for everyone.... one day started calling me Grumpy explaining that I was grumpy til lunch when I had my chocolate bar and coke (and then I was friendly and nice! LOL!) and I've never been able to outgrow it. My nn is never taken on any of the boards and if it is I just tack more on the end! ... I'm Grumpy72 most other places!

the 72 - shhhhh don't tell how old I am! HA! HA!

GA - where I live. Happy transplant from Canada to warmer sunnier climates!

My screen name is a nickname that a good friend in grad school pinned on me because of my premature motherly instincts LOL. It was many years before I became a mama and I like it. It contains part of my given name too.

Mama to two girls 12/05 and 8/09

I made it up when I was like 20. Talula is the name of a Tori Amos song and I love fairies...I misspelled it on purpose so I could have the same name on all websites, no one ever has this name with this spelling. Now I kind of hate it but I'm stuck with it becuase I'm way too lazy to start changing every site I'm a member of.
