a lot of websites require usernames. Some people would reflect their birth year, some their present age, some their favorite color and so many others. How about you How did you come up with your username for mylot?

My username goes back in the day when i was drawing a star in Photoshop. My drawing, i admit, was too ugly that my friends were teasing me. I saved the file as Modstar. It kind of registered in the minds of my friends that they keep mentioning Modstar in a sarcastic and funny way. I was beginning to get pissed off but just holding back or i could lose some friends lol! So again i used my psychological skill, i used the name Modstar as my username is most of my internet accounts. Since then they took the name Modstar in a positive way. By the way, my friends call me Mod.

hmmm...good strategy. Do you know that my family name is "BAJAO?". If your'e a filipino, beter yet, visayan, it means leftover rice. Or cold rice. So I thought, why not also use it as something funny instead of always getting offended when they tease me? So my username at friendster.com is LEFTOVER. And they started asking why, and then they'd laugh because they'd finally taken the hint.

Ok, now i know! I'll go check you out right now. I don't speak visayan really but i do understand some words and can speak a few. I'm chavacano but we use bajao sometimes. I even it bajao. My mom's so stubborn when it comes to bajao because i told her many times not to put bajao on top of newly cooked rice because it will becomes panis but still, after how many years, there's still bajao on top of it and i give up.

i wish I knew a lot about Indians and cherokees and stuff. So what does 'not taking up political correctness' mean? Is it like you don't get yourself involved with American politics? So is it like you have a government of your own? Own laws? Own codes?

the first thing that comes to my mind are all the nick names i have been given by my friends from my school days till date..... then i check if any of them are available and im mostly lucky cos my nicknames are oh so weird that its not possible for anyone else to have them.... then incase i do get one that i cant use i normally put a number after it .... the number mostly is your vehicle number which is easily remembered...... so thats how i come up with my nick name..... now the name i have in mylot here.... shonali... that is my actual name.... and fortunately three years ago no one by that name had gotten registered so i think i have a very easy name though it is indian and would be difficult for some foriegners to pronounce .....
