Just curious where some of your colorful names came from...

I got mine because I'm a bit clumsy and I like saying the word. :-)

I am "ursula" because of the wicked witch in the Little Mermaid, or was it because of Ursula Andress, the ultimate Bond girl, who looks a lot like me?

This has been my screen name on AOL Instant Messenger since 1993....oddly enough, it's slightly different now. But it's what I've always chosen, so I chose it again :-)

Though I was sorely tempted to pick Bond007, as Bond is my maiden name.

lol..... I am a bowler and got the nickname PINS from my old job after we all went bowling a couple of years ago. And the DIGITAL part of course is from me using digital cameras. So when I signed up I thought forever for a nickname/screenname and came up with it.

"Whereas the truth is that fullness of soul can sometimes overflow in utter vapidity of language, for none of us can ever express the exact measure of his needs or his thoughts or his sorrows. And human speech is like a cracked kettle on which to tap crude rhythmns for bears to dance to, while we long to make music that will melt the stars..."

Well, if you look at my real name it's not hard to figure out. The hard on is the one I use on another site, I call myself JETMEFUND. Anyone who can figure out what it stand for, it has a duel meaning, wins a brownie button or a chest to pin it on!
