Long ago I wanted to sign up to the Rage Against the Machine forums and wanted to pick a screenname that I could also have as my email address. I tried a few names that were already taken, but greenearthal was not. I have many, many posts on many many forums with this screenname now. I have a song called gea on my cd. And I have a sort of sequel song where my bandmates wrote a really syrupy chorus "green earth al is my pal, saved the world with his smile, while he smiled all the while."

Those are lyrics from "A Murder of One" by Counting Crows. The lyrics quote a poem, though I'm blanking on the poet right now.

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.

LoLa is a combo of first and last name I use for writing and kink. I thought to do some topping, so needed something that would work, and "whatever Lola wants, lola gets..." was fun. Well, the topping is long gone, but the handle sticks for "alternative" lifestyle things.

Hmm. my favorite color is red. Kinda obvious if you know me. And My name translates into mermaid - hence siren.
There is more to it, but if I told you, you would figure me out!!! HAHA

Cool to hear these explanations, thanks Rp. Good one.

Mine is a nickname from childhood given me by my dad derived from my name-Rachel. He has a "special" sense of humor and was not about to call me something as unsatisfying as "Rach" that could not be said in an ironic tone of voice.

Mono- as in mongamously wired
Vanilla- as in sexually unexploratory and non BDSM or kink
Cracker - merely a referance to plain white, un interesting
Poly - as in Poly
Hag - as in hang around to poly people
Guru - a joke on "knowing a lot and having answers"

there you have it!

Mono,

Man, I was always curious. What a moniker! And a weird foray into the inner-workings of your mind...ooohhh

Mine's brand new for this forum, but I think I'll keep some variant of it. I've been shedding a lot of my past lately, old pain, old futures, old ideas and somehow, old screen names. I came up with rubyfish really late one night and still am not quite sure where it came from or how much I like it.

Ruby is my birth stone and I really identify with that, which is odd, as I'm like the least girly girl I know. Fish is a misspelled chunk of my last name.

I keep telling my husband he should join and pick a screen name that matches mine because I think it's really cute when couples do that. Maybe rubysboy or something like that. Or playing off his name and birthstone ...
