Ok, we all have our reasons for choosing a name other than our birth or given names. WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THE NAME THAT YOU USE? Me first: Ladyljs I worked for General Electric, in a mans world for several months, when one of my collegues said, ------(my name), you are always such a lady, and we don't find many of those any more. Hence my handle "lady" and my initials ljs. YOUR TURN!

My name comes from my nickname. Since high school I have been called speedy by a few people that fly model airplanes with my dad. I was headed to a model airplane contest and was caught speeding. Well my father passed me while I was sitting on the side of the road pulled over and stopped. After the state troopers left I followed my dad out to the flying field and sat in my car for a little bit to calm down. When I finally decided to get out of my car, a good friend of mine that flew airplanes yelled out "hey speedy". Well I thaught my dad had told everyone but he didn't. My friend happen to pass me as well when I was sitting on the side of the road. So the name has stuck with me ever since. Then of course the numbers after my name is my birthdate 1/2/79.

My name is actually a nickname I acquired in high school. My first name is Chris. In our chorus class, our teacher was trying to get the class to sing "Chrees-Mas" (we were singing White Christmas.) Well, obviously, since Chris is similar to Chrees-Mas, the whole class started calling me Chrees. The s was dropped, and I became just Cree. The Ma and the Tee are just shortened versions of my middle and last name. It was pretty cool to have that nickname. At volleyball games, the whole school would chant "CREEMA" like they did in the "rocky" movies. For basketball--I was "Cree-Ma-Jule-Jabbar" Although I played NOTHING like Kareem! :) Ah... memories.

Well, you've got me wondering something. I chose Momalisa because that has been one of my long time screen names. (My name is Lisa and I'm a Mama, but I made it look the the 'MonaLisa' for fun.) But why did I put the 65 after it? Was there already someone named Momalisa and I had to add something different? Or did it have to be a certain number of characters? I don't think so, because I see yours is only 7 characters long. Hmmmm....I don't know why I did that.

I chose my name because I have 3 kids and I'm a happy mommy. I also feel like my whole life right now consists around my family so that's how most people know me personally so that's how I would like to be known here online:)

My name is one of my favorite songs. Kiss This is an Aaron Tippin song that he wrote because he got on his wifes nerves one day so she told him to kiss this. I have often made this same comment to my partner.
