I was H3girl for many months when I first came here. I changed e-mails and something was crazy and it wouldn't let me back in. I had to re-set up everything so I went with my loves the chihuahuas. My husband and I call them chi-chi's so chi chi lover. Yes, it's cheezy.
There is a movie coming out this summer called Chihuahua Hollywood, but they spell it Chewahwah or something like that. Looks pretty cute:-)

Mine is pretty self explanatory but before I was diagnosed with a mood disorder O was terribly depressed for 10 years. I mean, couldn't function type of depression. Anyway my doctors kept trying different meds to help me but nothing worked and I had bad reactions to EVERYTHING. I have been on 41 different medications, hence Triedeverymed. Now I'm on a meds that does work so maybe I need to change my username but everyone knows me by this one so maybe not.

You stole my question !!  lol.  I asked this a long time ago, because I am always curious how people come up with them.......other than the obvious.......same with email screen names........I love this question.

To those who may not remember.......Mine was a CB Radio "handle"  I always travel with a CB radio on long trips, because the truckers always let you know at what mile marker  the "Bears" are.  Saved me many a speeding ticket......I'm sure.  When on a long trip to Vegas or anywhere out of state, it can get boring, so, I would get on the radio and tease all the poor guys......it was hilarious !!!  They would get all hot & bothered and made the trip a lot more fun.  It got to the point after years that the truckers knew who I was, and I would sometimes listen in and I would actually hear them talking about me........"Has anyone heard from that little NautyOne lately"  and the name stuck........You don't hear to many women out on CB radio's so you could imagine how they jumped on it when they heard a female voice out there.....lol.  My husband actually almost had us killed on the way to To Vegas from Colorado.  He too would pass the time messing with them, he would pretend to be a gay and looking for any gay truckers.......bla bla.......His was good......pee your pants  hilarious.  Needless to say......most of the truckers were from the South and they don't like gays.......one hay hauler actually spotted us in my 92 t-bird driving down the highway because He saw My CB antenna and could see how close the signal was, and literally tried to run us off the road into a ditch.......almost did....that was friggin scary....anyway........I am rambling, all that as to how I got my screen name........

Nauty...............

I took my medicine as prescribed but I wanted to stop taking it because I did not want to live my life "popping pills". I started reading about what it would be like to stop and I was confused about addiction, withdrawals, etc.....I came across this site and decided that confused was a good name for me and the 456 is my house number.

Mine is what my nieces and nephews call me because they couldn't say my real name. I wanted it to to be something positive and they mean the world to me. And 13 is a lucky number for me.

Set some dominos up and then tap the first one.......they go down one at a time, well i was at the end waiting for the last one to fall and decided to get some help.  I may have to change it eventually as my daughter and i were playing literatti the other night and some person invited me into their chat room.  Thought domino was short for dominatrix!!!  If he only knew!!!!!!

Nauty, that's some story!  A road trip with you sounds like a freakin' blast, when's the next one?

dominosaray, I play Literati all the time!  When's the next game?

I only wish I had gotten creative with my name...I did not, it's my actual name..and the 805?, well, everything else was taken!  I think it does say something about me though, the fact that I used my actual name reflects my honesty.  Not a great story like Nauty's, but it's something.  : )

I think mine is self explanatory too.
I felt like all my dreams had been lost, dreams of becoming a successful career woman, a mother, a wife, due to addiction! You know how it goes!!!!
Therefore lostdreams seemed appropriate.
However, the career dream is becoming real now, so i'll maybe change my name to newdreams or something along those lines if the latter falls into place. lol

Jacqui........Imagine you and me on a road trip with our CB radio.......Oh, lord....would we have a blast.  When you hear about unexplained Jack-knifed Rigs all over U.S. highways.....ya'll know me and jacqi are on our road trip.  I feel kinda silly re-reading that long drawn a$$ story.  It was how I got my Screen Name.....what can I say??  it was funny to me.......in my mind anyway.....lol.  


DominoSarah..........That was good, creative.......funny, reminds me of a story.......hmmm........lol.  When I created a ScreenName for my Mom .....her name is Barbara.......So I named her Barbwire1966........she had to change it, because she kept getting I'ms from strange guys asking if she looked like Pam Anderson.......lol.

When I was youner I had the dubious nickname of "Little Savage".  

Over time it gradually just became "Sav"...when I logged on, the software told me "Sav" was taken...so I simply typed it forwards and backwards. "Sav vaS". (Lazy, eh?) :)
