Screennames-Why???

Why did you choose your username??

Some of the U2 one's-like mine-are pretty obvious. The 77 stands for the year I was born!!

Isn't it obvious? I mean all the U2 references to sulawesi and all.... Ok, mebbe not. The real story is...my parents worked in Indonesia from the time I was 3 till I was 16, so I grew up on an island there called Sulawesi. Thus the nick. It may not be U2-related, but hey at least it's unique.

Mine came after my first 10 choices were already taken. Honestly, considering how many names had been taken, I was surprised to see that this one was still open. But I love it now, and I wouldn't want any other name.

My favorite color is yellow - and I like to fly kites. (I love windy / stormy days.)

I have a really cool yellow and orange and pink striped kite that I got from my dad before he died. I was little Yellow Feather in Indian Princesses - anybody else know what that is? I have yellow walls and yellow velvet furniture. I love lemons - used to eat them til my dad (the dentist) told me it strips the enamel off your teeth.

Imagine my delight when later in life my favorite band comes up with a lemon and song called Kite! Part of the reason I love U2 so much - they always seem to have the right soundtrack for my life! My dad has been gone for 16 years - he died when I was 16 - but that song just hits me every time.

How much more symbolism can you get in a screenname?

1. I like Elton Johns song Tiny Dancer.
2. I'm petite for my size.
3. U2's music always makes me want to dance!

I was given my name by the ppl in the Toronto GA line, due to being married to Edge clone. And of course, am married to THE EDGE in spirit!

You from Monroe as well? An old friend of mine called this place FUN-roe one day, and I've been calling it that ever since. Hehe...

It was just the name that came to mind at the moment I was registering. The funny thing is I can't remember the last time I went on a pub crawl.

Other reasons: I didn't want "U2" in my username. And finally, I wanted sort of a dark name. It's really my sense of humor (or my sense of the absurd) more than anything.

Oh, and I do like a good beer.

I just realized I only live like 2 and a half hours from melon.

Wanna come over and eat grilled cheese sandwiches and blow bubbles and watch the fluffy clouds pass by?
