How did you come up with your username? Is there some story behind it?

Mine.. my cat's name is Alexis, and my name is Amy. So it's her name backwards that melds with my name. I also sometimes call her My Alexis, so it's all those things rolled into one.

I'm a bit obsessed with my cat. :cat:

    "Miss Five Thousand" is an old school expression that you use to signify a girl or woman is high maintenance or spoiled...had been called that ~a few~ times in my life. And I have thin, spindly eyelashes. I guess juxtaposing the two was my way (subconsciously) of bringing myself back down to earth. LOL

    Ok, that might not make sense to anyone. LOL

  • WeathercurlWeathercurl Registered Users Posts: 228
    Mine: a pun. I never know whether it'll curl. Also, whether it curls depends on the weather. And it sounds like a spin on "weather girl", which isn't PC now but it used to be used on newscasts. Kind of silly but I went with it. And, one of my all time favorite characters from a book is Granny Weatherwax. It's a tiny tribute to Terry Pratchett, one of the funniest writers on the planet.

    Fifi is the name I always used when entering high scores on video games, unless it only took 3 letters. I also used it on computer games but usually added funny and crazy last names.
    When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??
