Is it just me?
Would it be helpful to anyone else if we made a sticky of people's IRL first names? I have a tough time remembering everyone's real names, and I feel weird posting or PMing a message to someone and referring to them as oh, say, monkeymom. KWIM? Some of us have our names in our siggys, but not everyone. Just having a quick place to look and say, 'Oh, that's right. Your real name is Bathsheba.' would be really nice.
My name is Laura, btw. :)
ali's june baby: Ali
Amjohnson02: Amanda or AJ
cheeksy: Varya or V
echo: Roxane (Rox or Rocky)
Ga Girl: Misty
hershey: Norma aka "Auntie"
iowa mom: Lynn
its casey86: Casey
Kimmeh: Kim (or Kimberly/Kimmie)
minna k04: Minna
mollymae: Molly or Dani
mommy .<3. Isaac: Preanna
Oriental lily: Thea
Sami Underwood: Sami or Samantha
sarahjill: Sarah (or Jill!)
I think putting first names in the siggy is a good idea.
I'm Chrissy by the way. Most people know that, but some still call me Missy. That's ok with me though. :)
I put mine in my siggy, because when Hanvan and I were meeting up for the first time she had to ask for my name before! so I figured I better put it there so people would know who I am!

Can't seem to edit my own comment. It won't let me save it, so I'll just say here (again) where are the dang smilies? I put 3 laughing guys after my lol comment and they just don't show up anymore.
Thanks for adding your names, ladies! This is so helpful; keep 'em coming! : )
I'm Erika (with a "K")
My friends call me Rika :)
I am just laughing tooo much
I am Claudia, but recently I changed my name to MAMI
Good idea - I'm Jacqueline
I'll put my name in my siggy- it's Tracy. (Anatresia- ann na tray sha- came to be my screen name for everything because the nickname "Stacey" comes from Anastasia, but there's no formal name for Tracy, hence Anatresia.)
I'm Lisa. But that was probably obvious, lol.
I'll make a sticky.
Who Are You?
Post here is you would like to share your real name. (It was requested to have a sticky for this.)
It might also be fun to know the meanings of our screen names. We had fun with this in STC.
'Course mine is boring...
I am Lisa; the 2224 is a mix of DH and my b-days.
Ok--sticky is at the top, under "who are you?".
So funny...I was just thinking that it would be fun to know the origin of everyone's screen names (at least the less obvious ones)! Mine's a little long, but I think it's kinda a sweet story...
We were in the TTC state for 4 1/2 yrs, so when our 3rd IVF finally worked, we were ecstatic. 6 weeks after my BFP, I started having bad bleeding (on a Fri night, of course), and was told I was probably miscarrying. Went in Mon morning for an ultrasound, and my RE found Sarah right away and said, "Nope, baby's still there!" 10 days later it happened again; went in for an ultrasound and this time got to see the heartbeat. Cut to 2 weeks later, another bad bleeding episode, US that day turned out fine, too. On the way home, I was fussing at my belly, saying, "You are such a monkey! Get comfortable in there already and stop giving your mommy and daddy a heart attack!" DH, knowing that we wouldn't be finding out the sex until the baby was born, said, "I think we just found our nickname for the baby while you're pregnant." 'Monkey' stuck, and we've called her that ever since. In fact, I call her 'Monkey' more than I call her Sarah. I've got to get out of that habit...
