Stumpy is a nickname that I was given when I was on the bike patrol in downtown Nashville. I was walking down the street and someone said I looked like a tree stump walking down the street. I guess due to me being short and stocky. Well the name stuck and the 47 was the number I used in football. Most of my user names have 47 or 4700 in them.

Buzzwinder comes from an incident in a local bar one night, about one in the morning this guy comes walking in, he had obviously had several beverages that evening already, he ask a friend of mine who was tending behind the bar for a buzzwinder, perplexed by the name of this beverage she came and asked me and a few my of buddies if we knew what was in a buzzwinder, none of us had heard of it and she couldn't find it in her Bartenders friend mix drink book or the owners own rolodex file of special drinks, so totally mystified by the gentlemans request she returned to him and asked what was in a Buzzwinder? He promply got a huge smile on his face and said quite clearly A Budwieser Please. Everyone got a big kick out of it , including the bartender, after that everytime I went into the Bar I aked for a Buzzwinder. I drink Bud Light, and it kinda stuck.

Nothing special with my name! It's just that. I should have been inventive.

I've always been a gamer... since I can remember. In 1996 when Ultima Online was released, I created an accout, and depending on the server I played on I was either known as Lady Ahava, or Lady Kaliska. Now I play World of Warcraft as you can see on my avatar. A night elf hunter. ^_-. And I tend to use either as a log in name out of habit, and it's just easier for me to remember. I have a great love for pixelcrack (as I call it) and the natural.. (gardening ect) Go figure right?

I grew up off Modena street and there was a gang of kids I use to hang around with when I was young and we jokinly called ourselves Modena Cartel. I had to shorten it a long time ago when AOL wouldn't let you use screen names that long. Wow, I guess that was about 13 years ago when I made the screen name.

These are great to read! My two favorite so far (interestingly enough) both involve beer. Thebes has been my favorite so far. I was laughing my butt off after that one. Oh, wait...no, it's still there. Buzzwinder's was great too! Keep 'em coming!

I use Gabe15 (or some form of it) for as many different online names things as I can so I don't have to remember too much. It started somewhere else, away from this site, and I just wanted to use Gabe, but it was taken everywhere. I think one of the suggested computer generated names was Gabe15, or maybe I just stuck the 15 on since my birthday is March 15th...something along those lines, nothing fancy.

Growing up in middle TN, and parents of the University of TN alum, I was destined to be a HUGE Big Orange fan. I have followed TN athletics since I was probably 5 or 6 and let me tell you, that is a LOOONNNGGG time!!!! So, I assume everyone can figure mine out from that...
I want to take a stab at Chris's screenname before he posts it... I am guessing it stands for, "Rare Palms". Am I right, Chris?

When I first moved to Jacksonville, I lived 1 blk from the beach, was a huge Jimmy Buffet fan and wanted a cool license plate. I tried many different things and couldn't believe it when this one was available!


I no longer live at the beach (and my current "Reef" plate reflects my love of Scuba diving), but I'm still a Bch Grl at heart!

Two of my favorite hobbies have been scuba diving and salt aquariums. I even had a marine aquarium maintenance business for a number of years. And I am most proud of my son Shawn, hence "saltydad". BTW, any rumors that "salty" refers to my language are mean, misguided gossip (but also true!)

I am fairly new to the site (great people and info). I grew up in cold New York. I live in Santa Barbara, CA and bananas and tropicals bring me warmth. I thought for sure someone already was using Magilla Gorilla. He is a cartoon figure of the 60's and loved banana's.
