How did you get/pronounce your screen name - Page 14

post #196 of 316
Oh, thank the Lord I finished reading all these names. It's fun to read but hard to concentrate when the rest of the family has "look at me, look at me!" on their minds.
I got my email name partially due to my husband (an ongoing theme for many, I noticed) My husband use to install cable, phone and High Speed Data or HSD as some call it. He also had a very large iguana named Monty. He worked on his computer name first till we got a combination of computers (HSD) and his fondness for reptiles (lizard) so his name is HSDlizard. I figured he'd be the one on the computer when we first got the internet (a ha ha ha ha) so I said if he was going to be HSDlizard, I'd be the HSD widow. Looking back it's very ironic knowing that he has to fight me for the computer daily icon_surprised.gif
I live in MA. I didn't realize I've enjoyed making cakes since the birth of my now 10 year old daughter. I have a 6 year old son and I'm a step mom to a 20 yr old daughter as well. We'll be married 13 years in May but I've known him for 17.
My cake pictures are too big to send to Cake Central which bothers me to no end. I have some I'm extremely proud of. I wish I knew if there was a way to make them smaller. Any ideas? I have a yahoo photos web link but I don't think I can send it here, can I?
Thanks,
Brenda

Well mine is very simple so that I could remember it. I am on so many websites and with work too I just keep it simple and use my last name....Sundine. The 2 is from my aol account since I had already had the 1 prior. If I do my last name then I never forget it.


As far as old....my lord there are a lot of youngsters on this forum...lol..I was born in 1952 and that does seem like eons ago years wise but in my mind (not my body) I am still in my 30's.... I have my same friends from grade school and we have been friends for 42 years....o my gosh! Of course my mom is 82 and she still has her friends from high school too and they get together at least once a year. That is a long term friendship.

Hi..I've enjoyed reading this post as well! Very fun to learn the history of your nicknames....Especially BobWonderBuns!! LoL

well, mine comes from sweet traditions my biz name. I have had SweetT on here and sweettraditions, too but my computer messes up (or something) and CC wouldn't recognise them, so far, Sweet_T7 has stuck lol. 7 is my birthday and lucky #.

Just wanted to say 'Don't be afraid of 30!' My Dad died when he was 29 so my 29th year was terrible..I kept wondering if I'd make it to 30 (being the oldest kid in the family and all) When I turned 30, I was estatic!! And life just keeps getting better! I am 52 years old with 6 grandchildren and still feel--in my head anyway- 30 years old.


Just started doing cakes in june of 2005 and I'm lovin it!!

JaneK thanks for that tip. I have been a member of this site for months and I only started to figure out how to navigate it in the past TWO DAYS!! Wow, and I'm not a computer idiot, but I've felt like one, that's why no one has heard much from me. I haven't even learned how to look at posts I've replied to unless I get it linked from my email account. At least that's a start. I've posted a lot of pictures tonight. I guess they weren't too big after all. icon_mad.gif Now I know why I'm still a newbie. icon_redface.gif

Two years ago I began making cakes for other people because of the encouragement I was receiving from family members. I had made a few cakes for my kids prior to that. One day I was staring at my hands and couldn't believe what all I've been able to accomplish with them. It was a humbling moment for me. I began thanking God for blessing me with this talent and ability that I had never even dreamed of or desired of having. When I had to think of a name to sign up for CC I looked at my hands and remembered the gift God has given me and hence the name Steady2Hands.

I know I still have much to learn and my decorating skills are far from perfect but I plan to continue practicing and improving. Thank you to all you CC buddies for your help and encouragement! You're the best!

CarolAnn~

having a tax ID number and registering your business name are 2 seperate things.

you need a tax number so you can file income tax.
you need to register a business name so no one else takes your name.
they go hand in hand, but theyre not the same thing.

get a tax ID number asap. even if the business doesnt make any money, they will want to know why you never got one!

My name is pretty simple, too, lol. My hubby is the police chief here and his call number is 262. I have so many passwords and user ID's with my home computer and work, so I have to make sure I can remember them, lol!!

P.S. I just turned 30 in November!

Okay, I'm only up to page 6 reading, but I decided to chime in before I finished. My screen name Tkeys is actually a shortened version of my normal online/email name of "tessiekeys," which is a nickname from my mother. According to family legend (a/k/a my mother) I could never pronounce my name properly when I was a young child (my name is Jessica) and I would call myself Tessiekeys. She was always afraid I would get lost somewhere and never returned, because they would be searching for a Mr. and Mrs. Keys who had lost their daughter Tessie. When I got my first email account, I was abroad in college, and no one but my parents who worked at a college had email yet (in fact, it was my mom who first told me about this email thing) and all of us who were in the program were mostly lining up to communicate with our parents who had email accounts. So, i picked the email name "tessiekeys" and it has stuck for the online world, too. Rather than explain it, I sometimes shorten it to Tkeys, figuring most people will assume it is my first initial and last name.

For those turning 30 and worried, turning 30 didn't phase me. My life in my early 30s has been great, and so many good things have happened. I think age is a state of mind, and a day of the year can't do anything to you. When my grandmother turned 86, she bought a red car, a silver jacket, and took a trip to Asia. So . . . attitude is everything! If you feel young and embrace your age, that is all that matters. My husband, however, has decided that since he is supposed to turn 40 this year, he'd rather be Jack Benny and stay 39 forever. I personally keep telling him he is silly . . . and then poke fun at him and tell him he is an old man (that probably doesn't help much, huh?).

would you believe (ala Maxwell Smart...and his shoe phone)

it was supposed to be dough...but the "h" key was broken on the typewriter?

it was supposed to be dug....but the person typed an extra letter?

it was supposed to be dougals but said wrong it becomes a bit risque?

Melvira this is great!

I,too am sad about bobwonderbuns. I thought we had a buff guy who could cook. I have really enjoyed reading about the origins of your screen names, and your lives. You are all talented, amazing people.

I am 44 yrs old and still feel 22. I have been with my husband since I was 17. We have 3 children, 2 boys and 1 girl. My oldest son just turned 18, 2 days before Christmas (the best christmas present I ever got!). My middle son is 15, and my daughter will be 12 at the end of this month. I am a stay at home mom who took the Wilton courses last March, and seem to be" okay" at the cake decorating thing. I still don't have enough courage to post any of my cake pics, but I sure love this website.

My name, Charmed1, is because I feel that I live a charmed life! I love my husband more every day, and he has made all of my dreams come true. Well, all of them except the one about growing VERY old together, we are working on that one!
I love my life and I feel blessed that I have all I need in this world. I like to help my friends out when I can, and I love to work with food! Cake decorating speaks to the cook and the creative side of me.

Being 44 is wonderful. I, too, no longer worry about "what people think".I feel more confident and secure than I did when I was younger. My advice to all who worry about turning any age is--Don't worry! It is a just a number and it doesn't define who or what you are.

Thank you for all the smiles and support you give me! Have a great day!
Love, Charmed1 icon_lol.gif

Charmed1,

Love your story. It's so uplifting. I love seeing people who truly have happiness by the tail.

You need to post your cake pictures, though. We'd all love to see them! My first posted pictures were not near the calibur of most people on this site. Heck, my most RECENT pictures are no where near the calibur of the people on this site. But I'm having fun. It sounds like you are, too, so share the fun and show your pictures!

Carol

whyteicing, when I went online to the form for the tax # I thought it asked for the business name. I haven't decided so that's where it's been since.

I don't think "they" know I don't have one. Ü

I do need to decide on a name though because I have some orders for my wood shop and will be needing to buy materials soon. [/quote]

I don't think they know I don't have one. I've never charged tax for any of my cakes. I do need to decide on a name though because I have some orders for my wood shop and will be needing to buy materials soon.

I just stumbled upon this post and had a great time reading all the responses. Here is my answer: My name is Jodie and my nickname is "Jods" pronounced with a long o. I love love love the color blue so I came up with indigojods the first time I needed a screen name.
