Lightbulb Why do you use the online name that you use?

Mine is Redpepper and the story behind it is that I was having an emotional LDR with a man who is also a redhead. He used another veggie for his on line name and he suggested that I use redpepper for my name on Fet life, as I was starting an account. I didn't end up using that but decided to here.

I wish now that I hadn't used the name I did on Fet life as it is the only one of it's kind out there and at least redpepper is harder to google... you get a lot of red pepper recipes.... fine with me!

Anyway, I would change everything to this name if I could as it suits me somehow, or have I become someone because of it.... don't know.

It's funny because my nicknames in real life are far more soft and squishy.... kinda lovey and endearing. What does that say??? I'm a hard ass redhead when redpepper and not so much in real life? HA, you'll have to guess on that one... Mono would know. Probably a little of both..

If I had to pick a name for Mono that would suit him in real life it would be "schooner" as it's his fighting name. Or maybe "the littlest Hobo" as he saw himself like that at one point... or "sherpa" as he tends to carry all the stuff while the core primary family walks ahead (his choice I have to add!).

I wonder what he would pick for me?

My husband would be "mushroom" as he is a mushroom geek... always researching, picking, growing, getting together with a local mycological society... or maybe "fuzzy" as he was called that in high school due to his ultra curly blond hair.

Anyway, would love to here others?

Smile Because......

I'm a Druid and I kind of go wayward every now and again.

Just Me,

Years and years ago, back when the internet was a baby... I first got online.

At the time I was the only female construction inspector in my region and when I needed an online name, ConstructionLady seemed to fit the bill.
That was too long to type all the time tho so I became constlady.
Have been ever since, though for a time I used a different name on dating sites, since I'm the only constlady I ever found so far.

Let's see....

She's "Bexy" and he's "Ben".

Simple as that.

(Oddly enough, we've met a bunch of others with those names since we picked it... Who'da thunk that there were that many Bexy's and Ben's in the world?)

I just wanted something with the word poly in it and was feeling a little chubby the day I signed up.

I've had the same ID for nearly 10 yrs, and I use it everywhere. At it's conception, it as because I held a flame for a fox I met in 1988. over time, it has evolved to mean many things.

I originally set out for the four of us to have a blog together where we would each post things. We weren't really creative with a name. No one else posts much od anywhere except me. I just kept that name to be consistent with most everything I am involved in on the internet with regards to the four of us.

I uses two handles around the net: Ceoli and Seinneann. Both of them are Gaelic shorthand words for musician or music maker. Basically because I'm half Irish (though now officially an Irish citizen!) and I'm a musician by trade.

I just really like the lines:

Well, I dreamt I saw you walkin'
Up a hillside in the snow
Casting shadows on the winter sky
As you stood there counting crows
One for sorrow, two for joy
three for girls, and four for boys
five for silver, six for gold
seven for a secret never to be told

There's a bird that nests inside you
sleeping underneath your skin
When you open up your wings to speak
I wish you'd let me in

NOTE: As you can tell, my screen name has changed. I found several other sites with folks using versions of SeventhCrow and figured I didn't want to be associated with their writings and they probably didn't want to be associated with mine. There's only one place I'm still SC, and I'm considering deleting that profile and starting a new one.

As for AT, well, I needed something that was unlikely to appear as somebody else's byline. I pulled it from the works of one of my favorite poets.

While polyamory, open relationships, and swinging are all distinctly different approaches to non-monogamy, they are not mutually exlusive. Folks can, and some do, engage in more than one of them at a time--and it's all good.

I really like that... is it part of a larger work?
