    Default Usernames

    I thought it might be interesting to see how everybody decided on the names they have on tweleve. For me, I was on the ATT site when somebody recommended Tweleve. I thought, might as well check it out, and so I typed in a couple of names that were already taken. Anyways, I decided that I wouldn't even end up going to this site very often (famous last words) and typed in an incredibly stupid name-Iwantthehummingbird, because I wanted the hummingbird token. Long story short-I ended up coming back here A LOT (getting to almost 600 posts) and I was stuck with the name! I guess things would have turned out differently if I had chosen a better name....like HB or something.

    What did you decide for your usernames?

    Back in the day, the very first time I got to set my own computer password (think of the year between punchcards and when desktop computers went to 64 kb of RAM), lizardlips was my best friend's affectionate name for his wife. I decided to use it as my password. After a couple of years with it as a password, I started using it as a fun username. I've been using it every since (not as a password, don't worry, and don't waste your time, lol). Only on rare occasions do I have to add a number symbol because it is already taken. And, as a bonus, it fit the ATT forest creatures theme so nicely. The name has become such a part of me that I have lizard jewelry and used to have pet lizards.

    P.S. Fun question, IWTHB

    Dear IWTHB,

    I thought you just had your 15th birthday? Isn't this a school day?

    Well if you haven't figured it out already....
    Netsirk is Kristen spelled backwards, which is my real name.

    When I was little(5yrs old) my little sister and I used to pretend we were aliens coming to destroy our house (lame to think about now but was fun at at the time) We wanted cool alien names and so my mom told us to use what our name was backwards..So I got Netsirk and my sister got Nerual.

    And given the anagramming theme in ATT I thought it would be appropriate to use it.

    And there you have the history of Netsirk!

    Although somehow I have managed to pick up the nickname Smurfee and Smurfster by Mimi and some of the others. And I can't for the life of me figure out how that all got started. But once it stuck I had to change my avatar.
    Like Contests???
    Then check this out!

    I presumed the avatars predated the nickname. Learn something new every day.

    Well, remember back when the dinasoars were roaming the earth and AOL came on the scene, and we would all "chat" in the hottubs and pass each other a drink and we thought we were "sharing info"?

    AOL would only allow you to have nine characters to your screenname. I was working for a Mercedes dealership and my specialty was leases. Someone suggested I use "Benz Leaser", but AOL would not allow 10 characters, so I removed the last "e" and ended with "benzleasr." The rest is history.

    My epitath will now read:

    Here lies Benzleasr
    Uecla eethra inallyfa idda ema ina.
    Dreams really do come true!
