what's in a name????

Polls, funny pictures, jokes, must-see websites, personal announcements, you name it...

After all these great stories I honestly feel like I should have put more effort into selecting my "handle." Hell, even an obvious play on the name, like "Pohlcat," seems tame by comparison. :)

TF -- I really think you should market the name, invent a candy -- twistdfigit midgets -- wouldn't that go over big at the movie concession stands?

Well, there is really no great mystery to my name, it is just the one my mother gave me. I was not in a very creative state of mind when I signed up :lol:

Wow, what a small world, perhaps Squeeze is a distant relative? My last name is Limon (just like Lemon but with an I instead of an e). And yes, I too have heard all of the "lemon" jokes and get called "Lymon" and "Sprite" because it's lemon, lime.

I think I've said this before, here or elsewhere, I dunno.
Anyhow, it's my name. I've never really had or suffered a nickname, 'Wayne' doesn't get shortened or changed much ("Oi, Whuh!" No, doesn't work).
Also, making something up means I've got to try and remember another damn thing, which isn't my strong suit. And whatever I dream up/adapt/steal might not sound so cool to me in a few months' time. Or even the next day.

My son is notorious for forgetting passwords --- he finally came up with one he thought there was no way in hades he'ld forget --- he even told his sister and I what it was and we agreed it would be hard to forget it.

Well, sure enough, he went to the computer and was gonna sign in -- now, the guy isn't stupid or mentally deficient but he forgot what he changed the password to.

his sister and I both started laughing and said "Kevin!??" He looked up and said "what?"
"no, dufus, your password is your name, you know, the one you'ld never forget."

My given name is Edgar, so my wife picked "MrEd" for my "on-line" name when she finally talked me into getting involved in all this internet stuff about 4-5 years ago. Being as she considers me a giant horse's ass, she says the screen name is totally apropos.

Well according to some dictionary I had mine means "The worship of heavenly bodies."

Not into stars or planets or anything like that, so I used my own defination of 'heavenly bodies'. :twisted:

Now it seems I can't find it anywhere. So now I think I made it up. Or something. Link below is the closest I could find.

J is the initial of my first name.

Yep, I know... wasn't feeling very creative (at 4am) when I joined the old board and couldn't see much reason to change it on the new one! :roll:

LivingDeadGirl- you're a Limon too?? I'm a Lemons- close enough for gov't work though. I'd love to claim you as my long lost cousin.

I like the idea of maybe my handle should be SqueezeRLZMafus!! Ha ha ha! (He just lets me think I'm the boss)

PohlSE- I always read your handle as "POLICE" and thought that maybe you were in law enforcement. :idea:

Nothing so exciting I'm afraid (or as socially redeeming :) ).

Good rule of thumb: never mess with anyone who can kick your ass. :lol:



In first grade I got beaten up by a girl in front of the entire school. I was humiliated, mortified, and strangly excited. :wink:

I'm sure I've told you this, but in case I haven't...

My car has an electronic voice that disciplines me if I do something wrong. "Left door is open." "Lights are on."

My reply is always the same...

"Yes, Suzannah."

I wish! She was in the same class and the same age -- So I got to hear about it for weeks. :(

I think I finally lived it down by High School...
