Why do you have that name?

Hello everyone

I was just thinking at 2:00 in the morning. (can't go to sleep)

How did you come up with your name. I mean the user name
<----me umm well it was easy it stands for Beatriz (my name) a U2 fan.
But i like to tell people to be U2 fans so why not Be a U2 fan?

When I knew nothing about the Internet, my friend set me up an email account with the username of Menomineechick (Menominee is my hometown). I didn't really like that name much though, so I eventually got a different email account and needed a new username. I decided to just replace Menominee with Bono...Bonochick...and boy has it stuck! One of my bosses even calls me Bonochick sometimes!

When I signed up for interference, I couldn't think of a catchy nick, or anything too creative. The first thing that came to mind was trying to spell something with the initials of the first name of each band member. I tried lots of different combinations.... LEBA (which sounds too much like PLEBA), there was already a BEAL registered, and I tried other combinations as well. I just kinda liked ABEL.

I'm still surprised at how many people actually ask me what my nick means...I thought I was being way obvious

i used to be a snitch

when i was younger, my brother, sister, and i would sit around and watch tv, especially little house on the prairie. like normal brothers and sisters we all fought. well i used to get mad and tell my mom, so then my sister eventually started calling me nellie from little house on the prairie because nellie was a snitch too. ever since, that name has stuck with me. even my boss calls me nellie.

Yes. These are both my girlie!!! I hope my mullet doesn't bother you when I hug you, girlie.

Falling Star - it's an often used phrase in U2 songs. The Fly, One Tree Hill, ...... plus I love that name!

I lived in Georgia when I signed up on interference, but I wanted to reflect my native Oklahoma-ness. I also wanted to combine that with one of my top 5 U2 songs. Every time I drive through the Oklahoma panhandle, usually watching a gorgeous sunset, I love to listen to Heartland.

HeartlandGirl seemed to sum things up, I guess.
