Kentwood, Left my heart in New...
When growing up there were 3 Johnnys in the household, My father, grandfather, and me. When someone called Johnny all 3 of us would come running. So my mom and grandmother started calling my grandfather John, My daddy Johnny and also Junior, and I was called Johnny Boy. All my friends to date still call me Johnny Boy and I am 53 years old. JohnBoy was taken for my email address and username so the 298 was added automatically by cox. So now I use johnboy 298 for everything.

When you first started posting, I assumed Johnboy was an indication that you were very young. Reading your later posts and recognizing the maturity thereof, I rapidly reassessed and granted you adult status.

Sadly, my User Name is just my real name. Sorry about that.

I've often wondered if NOT capitalizing the first letter in a User Name indicates anything about the user -- does it indicate a more creative, I-don't-color-between-the-lines individual?

when i was in college, my boyfriend had his wisdom teeth out. later that night he wrote me a poem in email. he was on pain medication. he ended the email with a little poem:

You are my love,
My dove,
My... fov?

and the name stuck. laugh

-emily

ps becky, i tend not to use capital letters much on the internet. just laziness, i think... but as a result, Fov (with a capital F) looks really weird to me!

OK here it is.

You know I did mention something about my name choice being related to a school I went to. Sigh -I suppose the truth must be told, it'll come out eventually anyway.

While in law school, I was out partying and fell into a swamp. While there - trying to get out - I got to know a truly oppressed group. Gators - After hanging out with them for a time - I decided to specialize in a little known area of law known as reptiles for reptiles. Hence - I am the sole lawyer specializing in "gatorlaw". You have no idea what these guys have been put through til we started up the class action suits and federal uncivil rights cases. laugh

'Gelert' . . . . . . . . I love dogs and Gelert is a very, VERY famous and heroic Welsh dog in our history/ folklore. It's worth the read if you have time. Here is one place you can ;

Mine is simple enough, it was the nickname I called by now deceased appaloosa horse, Winterhawk. I called him Hawka, or Hawka von, or Hawka von Puka, sometimes Hawkavonpukabrain. Puka means hole in Hawaiian and had a tendency to act up sometimes. He spent the last 10 of his years living in pasture and this name rang real loud when I called him. He died a year and a half ago and I miss him dearly, he was "my" horse for 14 years.

JohnBoy,
well I always imagine you as the Oldest of the Waltons, intelligent, sensitive, But with a drive to be More than everyone expects from you.. OK, so maybe in the UK 'boy' as part of a name is no big deal as it is in the US. Johnboy to us is Richard Thomas, who has done soo much since his springboard in the Waltons!!!

OK as to me.. I have done this so many times, everyone else called me Tigger (the bouncy one) it has become a part of me.. it brings out the part I most Wish to be.. "but the most wonderful thing about Tiggers is Im the only one"!!!! I'm sure the original Tigger will be spinning in his toybox!!

I Bounce cause if I didn't, I would crawl into a hole and never come out.

Tig wave

Gelert, have you read the Barbara Erskine novels about Wales??

Hawk, I Hope you have found another horse to love, there are loads out there who need you.


A bounce a day keeps the doctor away!!

Once I tried out the Chat software at Yahoogroups. The name "Jenny," which is my name, was already "taken." So were Jenny1 and Jenny2. (There are an awful lot of Jennys in the world.) The person I was chatting with suggested Jenny100, so I changed from Guest73514 to Jenny100.

When I started posting in newsgroups I noticed there were at least two other Jennys, so I used Jenny100 there too. And I kept the name when I joined the JustAdventure and GameBoomers forums.

Wow what a lot of great stories! Derman, that reminds me of the Shermanator from American Pie. fov - that story is one of the best I've heard, I had my wisdom teeth taken out and I remember the fog I was in. Hawka - I like your explanation, I never would have figured out where the "spaces" in your name were.
Mine is a lot less personal then most of these stories, it really shows what a geek I am. A while back when I was first using the Internet, I needed to come up with a username for eBay. I wanted Lone Wolf, because multiplayer gaming was getting popular but I preferred gaming alone, adventures, or even when playing shooters. Well guess what? 31 other people had already wanted Lone Wolf, so eBay "suggested" lonewolf32. From that day on I used lonewolf32 every site I went to, just so I didn't have to keep track of a bunch of different usernames for different web sites.
Usually I was successful getting lonewolf32 - except those cases where a site required certain characters or a certain length of username. Because of those I still have to maintain a database of my usernames and passwords for all the sites I go to.

I picked Housewife, for one simple reason, is what I am at the time...Filling out forms and asking what my occupation is I would put "housewife" instead of Homemaker. Many years ago being a homemaker or a housewife wasn't a job, but we know better now. Because being a housewife is a hard job and raising a family. You can't call in sick or take a vacation and pay isn't that great either...

When we first got an E-mail account through our business, the server gave us the name colpet, short for for Colborne Street Pet Hospital. When I joined Gameboomers, I was so naive that I thought the user name was the one in our e-mail, so that's what I registered under.

Well, Johnboy, being from New Orleans, you should already know what the 1st half of my nickname means !
NOLA = New Orleans, Louisiana (a common abriviation around here), and the 2nd part LOU is my name, thus NOLALOU

Besides adventure gaming I also enjoy model railroading.

CNW 400 was the name of the flagship passenger train of the Chicago & North Western Railway, so called because it was said to go 400 miles in 400 minutes. Rather impressive until you do the math and realize that's only 60 MPH
