I'm a big Audrey Hepburn fan. On my wall in my living room, I have a giant still from her infamous movie, "Breakfast at Tiffany's" in which she plays the unforgettable Holly Golightly. Hence, Golightly. Grrl is just an alternative to girl.

I chose my name while living in Georgia. I was in grad school and was missing my home state of Oklahoma. I wanted a name that was U2 related and Oklahoma related, so I chose "Heartland," as many people consider Oklahoma to be part of the American heartland, and I love the song. I put "Girl" on the end because I was new to messages boards, and it seemed to be a popular thing to do. My friends on here call me HG or HLG, which I like.

Because I liked the Colorado Avalanche and was dumb enough to proclaim it in my screen name. I have regretted it ever since last season.

dsmith2904 was my old AOL screenname. I tried to choose something else, it wasn't available, so they assigned me that based on my name. I've since taken the name with me wherever I go because it's easy to remember.

I needed a username that was unique and Velvet Dress was playing on my computer so I figured what the hell use the song as my name and add a little southern feel to it.

Many moons ago when I first became a U2 fan I held my breath and waited for their first tour of my fandom....to my dismay it didn't come to America! It was the Lovetown tour hehe.

Also my memories of that tour via Propaganda are some of my most vivid and cherished ones of my long running love of U2.

And, well. LoveTown just kinda gives off good vibes

Of course everyone knows I love U2 and cats. When I made the name, my cat had just had kittens in a box beside the computer. So that's where it came from.

Mine's based on wishful thinking!!
Your Blue Room is such a seductive, intoxicating song - I remember thinking the first time I heard it, "Damn!! I wish I was the girl he's singing to in that room!!" Ergo, when I found this site.... And considering how much time I spend here now, in the House of Blue Crack, seems I've grown into the name very well!!

Well, I love Larry Mullen Jr. and the first time I saw U2 live was during the Popmart tour. Larry wore a shirt that said "hitman" on the front and in interviews, he would say that he "hits things for a living", so I thought it would be a cool nickname.

It's also part of my e-mail address, so in chat rooms or e-mails that aren't U2-related, I sometimes have to do some explaining about how I"M NOT AN ACTUAL HITMAN (why would anyone advertise that anyway?). I'm also NOT a man either!

So, in conclusion:
Not a hitman
Not a man
Larry is a hottie!

I picked mine based on my last name. I was thinking of Blue Sky, after Bullet also but I thought BR sounded better. BR is not even one of my favorite U2 songs!! Most people think I picked it because its my favorite or something. Not the case at all.
