What is the meaning behind your screen ID?  I know we've had this in the past but we have many new faces that I thought this would be a bit of fun!
 
Mine is not original.  When I signed up with HW, I had no idea what to sign up as but red is the color of my hair and I was 34 when I signed up with HW.

Mine is kind of silly; a nickname my cousins gave me while eating Canneloni at an Italian restaurant many, many, years ago. First it was Caroloni, and after all these years it's been shortened to just "Loney."

So funny, I always read it as LonelyLane too!! Sheesh!!! tongue

Mine is just my first and middle name, nothing interesting/original there *shrug* But I throw the Kristen part on there because if it's just Edie, people think it's Eddie and assume I'm a guy.

My preferred forum screen name was already taken - darkangel - so next I tried "princess," the nickname my hubby was using alot at the time. It was taken, too. In desperation, I used the Spanish word. Seemed appropriate since I married into a Spanish family and am learning to hablo Espanol.
Diagnosed with ulcerative colitis spring 1999.
 
Maintenance dose sulfasalazine. Probiotics, l-glutamine, vitamin D and fish oil caps. George's aloe vera juice. Oregano oil antibiotic, antiviral, antifungal. Mostly grain-free and dairy-free diet. Long-term remission with only minor blips.

*Throws hands up in the air!* Ok, now Sam you are going to confuse me to pieces and Carol, I'm glad you mentioned you were changing it because I would thought I've gone nuts! :) When you first signed on, Carol, I thought the same thing - Lonely but then I got it after a year lol.

Oh, btw Carol, since you changed the spelling of your screen name you have to tell Peter so he can change it on the mod list.

I have to admit I always read it as Lonelylane also.... I feel kinda silly now.

Unclebubba1970---- long story. When my nephew was little he would come in the house and I would look at him and go "bubbaaaaa". as he learned to talk he got confused and started hollering "bubbaaaaa" at me like it was a form of Hello or Hi. For a while it was confusing cause his nickname became bubba and he was calling me bubba.... somewhere in the process I became unclebubba and he became Little bubba. Then all the my niece and nephew's friend starting calling me unclebubba. now everyones kids call me uncle bubba. The 1970 came about when I needed to come up with an email address my young neice could remember, as she wanted to start emailing me. ANd 1970 is the year i was born.
Funny story... I was bartending one night and a couple ladies came in. One was my sister's neighbor. I was chatting them up and the other lady started talking about her daughter... and I said oh your madison's mom... I know madison. And she got all nervous about how I knew her daughters name. The my sisters neighbor started laughing and said.... "wait... he's unclebubba" The lady was so excited to finally meet unclebubba, the one the kids all talk about. LOL Guess I'm infamous.

there's no great story to how I came upon my name. I was the shortest student in my class in high school, therefore I was nicknamed munchkin. When I started on AOL, munchkin was already taken, so I just added the dd which were my initials. I'm really not that short either, I'm 5' 2", but I was in a class of only about 25 people.
