How did you get/pronounce your screen name - Page 9

Ha. I love this. My name is Rebekah and just turned 40. I am sure you can see my reasoning! icon_lol.gif

So, I'm sitting here, humming Elvira, thinking how old I feel because I will be (in April), 29 with 1 year experience...next year I will be 29 with 2 years experience...and so on, and really bummed out because I didn't even use my screen name. It was my husbands C.B. handle. We met when I was 19 and he was 21. We were a bunch of hicks and couldn't afford cell phones...thus we all had a C.B. and that is how we communicated when we were teenagers. Anyway, our last name is Sponenberg and spoonie was his nickname but spoondog was his "handle." We were married 8 years ago this past October and have 2 beautiful girls...Melanie Raye (6) and Katie Lynn (3) both going on 30 of course. I have always been accused of being younger than what I really am but I am told that is a good thing. It has taken me this long to figure out what I want to be when I grow up. I just started Nursing School today! Wow! Cakes are just for fun and well, I am addicted to this site. I just sat here and read all 8 pages of this thread and I had to add my 2 cents. I'm not original either...If I had to use my C.B. name, it would've been Mountain Laurel...My mom was Knob Mtn Mama and my Dad was the Knob Mtn kid...thus, I was Mountain laurel which is the state flower for pennsylvania...Am I rambling???

Well, so far it looks like I am the grams of the bunch. I'm going on 62 and just started decorating cakes last year after I retired. I have 3 granddaughters and love being a grandma. Grandma and grammy were taken so went with grams.

I should have taken notes too! I wanted to respond to so many!

The one I remember ended with MTV and said you grew up in Mt Vernon.. Iowa?

Mine is aligotmatt... My husband and I met online in a chatroom called teenchat, guess what, we were teenagers! I was 15, he was 14. I was ali-cat (a nickname by family for being Alison) and he was gotmatt (like got milk?). Then when I was 19 and he was 18 we decided to meet and for some dorky reason decided to sit together at my computer and type to our co-chatters using the name *drumroll please* aligotmatt. Just a combination. Well, I did get him icon_smile.gif In March it will be 5 years that we've been married. We have a 3 year old daughter, Korin, and an 18 month old son, Matthew. I'm supposed to be a full time stay at home mom. In March we had a lady from our mommy group show us all how to decorate cakes for one of our meetings. I thought it was really super and it seemed like fun to venture into for family birthdays and stuff. She's a cc memeber and directed me here for advice on my first big cake for my sons first birthday (the fish cake). I never really intended on selling cakes, but people started asking me to make cakes for them. I think in November I made 20 in the first 3 weeks! Back to the whole... I'm supposed to be a full time STAY AT HOME! mom. Not work from home! But I do really love it and I don't know if it will progress into a "real" business one day. I cannot even think in that direction until my kids get older and we're absolutely done having them too. Oh, speaking of older, I am 25. Most of my mommy friends are in their mid 30's and I tease that I'm *so* old now that I'm in my mid 20's, but I know I'm still young and just think it's funny to say for the eye rolls.

Was that rambly enough?

This has been so fun to read. You guys are so funny. As for turning 30...it's just another year. Growing old isn't so bad. Especially if you have good friends and a loving family to grow with you.

My screen name is my initials and my birthday which was yesterday and I am now the big 4-2. This year marks 20 years that I graduated from college!! I am happy and blessed to be celebrating another birthday. I'm loving my 40's because for the first time in my life I don't really care what anybody else thinks!!

DH and I have been married for 8 years and have 2 boys 7 and 4. Since I have young children I don't have time to worry about age, I take care of myself so that I can be around a good long time for my boys. I feel better now and take better care of myself than I did when I was in my 20's.

schmoop, that's me...originally schmoopy (anyone remember that Seinfeld espisode???). Back when I was kid-less, managing a restaurant, the chef and i always came up with nicknames for each other and we always bantered back and forth, 'no you're shoompy' (just like on Seinfeld). It somehow got shortened and stuck with me not him. I was with that company fo 10 years in different capacities at restuarants and corporate, but everyone always knew me as schmoop, and there you have it!

I don't feel old or young...right smack dab in the middle, 36 icon_biggrin.gif

k. d. bobo is my name.

And I am also turning thirty this year. Weird. I'm really not pressed about it, though.

great thread!!

I got my nick from my big sister...i'm #7 out of 8 kids and she would tell her chat friends that 'lilsis' (little sister) was here...and it just stuck I guess!!

As for age...what's in a number??? I will be 47 this year and don't feel a day over 20...well, maybe 30!!! I've been with DH for 31 yrs...married for almost 22 and have 4 kiddos - 20 yr old son, 16 yrs old son, 7 yrs old son and 5 1/2 yr dd...THEY are what keep me young (at heart, anyhow!!)

Not very original with my name. I'm a SAHM that likes to decorate cakes. My BIL runs our family website and he was giving all of us names for logging in and he came up with cakemommy. Sooooooo, that's how I came about my name. I was going to choose "bipkid" because when I was little my dad used to call me Bip. THAT name came about because I used to smack my dad on the back of his head on his bald spot and I loved the sound it made. He then started smacking in the same spot on my head and he said the sound was "bip"!!! icon_confused.gif So for about 20 years my dad always called me "Bip"! I am Bipkid elsewhere online but I didn't want people here on CC to think I was a kid! I just turned 35!!!!!

A bit more about me. I quit fulltime work as a retail merchandiser one month before I had my first child and haven't been back to work since. My DH and I met in '92 and married May 30th '98. We've been together for 14 long years. We now have two boys 4 and 2! If it weren't for my decorating and Cake Central family I really would go insane.

Ok, I have to ask... who else here is disappointed that bobwonderbuns is NOT a really hot guy with a rockin' backside?!?!? Hahahaha!! YOU RUINED MY NIGHT!!! WAAHHHHHH icon_cry.gificon_cry.gificon_cry.gif Whenever you're in a thread I dreamily picture talking to the guy that does the Levi's ad in the Sears catalog. You know, the one who probably isn't good looking, but man, you really wanna buy those jeans for the man in your life! haha!

Anyway, we're learning too many fun things! Keep 'em coming y'all!! (A little Paula Deen action there for ya!)

Oh, and I've been with my hubby since 1995, but only have been married since 2001. (He is a HUGE procrastinator!!) We have one son 18mos. He is a doll baby!! He's the one you see on a lot of my edible image cakes and cookies. I make them for family with him on it, because frankly, who doesn't want to see that?!?! icon_lol.gif

wow... cool thread...

however... alas... icon_cry.gif my nickname is pretty dull and far from interesting as some of the others that have been posted...

My real name is Fiona... however, for some reason people like to call me "FiFi" when they first meet me - and after that get slammed down for calling me that icon_mad.gif - I cant stand it cuz it conjers up visions of a prissy pink poodle - which I am so not... they usually revert to "Fi"... except my hubby... who in his wisdom lengthened it to "Feefs"... and it's stuck... his other nick for me is "Fillapohay" - don't ask where that came from! - but it's too darn long to log in with all the time so most places I'm just known as "feefs"... icon_rolleyes.gif

Like many of you, I don't have a wonderful tale of how I came up with my screen name. My first name is Keri, and I thought the Kreations with a K was cute - go figure! I use it for my cakes - seems like anything I do, buisness, etc I use my name----what's up with that? Anyway....

Those of you getting close to 30 - no biggie. I will be 33 next month - but somehow, I don't feel any older than I did 10 years ago - other than maybe the pains I have where I didn't used to! I still feel like a kid, and asked my Dad a few years back when you start feeling like an adult - his response - when you figure it out, let me know, because I still feel like a kid. Funny! Does having kids make you feel more "adultish"? My hubby and I have decided we are best suited for kids of the 4 legged kind.

I love this site - such a great place to share - I'm amazed by the talent on this site - I need some more work for sure!!!

Kitty Litter - that was so funny - and KAKA - you had me laughing. Thanks for the chuckles ya'll!

cgirl was originally candlegirl1 because I make and sell candles. Then I got into cake decorating also, so I just shortened it to cgirl for candle and cake. I also do glass etching and make jewelry but I don't really want my screen name to be cgejgirl, icon_smile.gif so I'll just stick to cgirl. My name is Heather
