My username "Eiregirl2017" comes from 1. Eire--the Gaelic name for Ireland. 2. girl--well, I am one. lol 3. 2017-- 2 years ago, when I was 17 and my brother was 20 I started using that number for everything...I don't know why. Anyway, where does your username come from?

Wow, I haven't gone over this in a long time, but here goes nothing. 1. "Thrwbck" is short for 'throwback.' I have always been into things that are older than me, like oldies music (different eras than my own, anyways), clothing, and just the way I conduct myself. I guess in some roundabout way I still kinda believe in chivalry and manner, unlike so many these days. 2. "jay" references my name; it's part of a nickname that people have called me since I was young. 3. Last, "67" refers to old-school pager code, becsuse pager code spells something that was important to me, too. But that's it, the origin of my username.

Nice to meet you 'Eiregirl2017' and welcome to Mylot! Thanks for explaining about your screenname, I love hearing the interesting ways in which people choose their user names. Mine is from my obsession with the day time soap, General Hospital. I am a long time viewer, somewhere around 40 years out of the 45 years (come April) that it has been on air. Liason is short for Liz and Jason, a 'couple' of characters that I have been rooting for and wanting to get together for 8 years now. Crazy, huh?

I got my username from the movie, A Knights Tale. It's something that the character, Chaucher, says. He talks about 'the lily among the thorns' when they first meet him (when he's naked! ;P). So I thought a pretty username would be LilyoftheThorns =D
