Re: Curious about Monikers

I think mine is pretty obvious, but it is a reference to the second letter of Paul to the church at Corinth, chapter five, verse 21:

"God made him who had no sin to be a sin offering for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God."

I like the verse because it both reminds me to be humble in my beliefs and shares the good news of Christianity. Jesus and talking about him can offend people and I've never liked it that some Christians increase the offensiveness by a judgmental air of superiority.

2Cor521

Re: Curious about Monikers

There's an old John Baldry song that has a quote in it: "If you want to cross the bridge, you've got to pay the toll." I worked for a liquor store chain in the inner-city, and the locals were always asking for credit or a freebie, so I put a sign by the register that said, "If you want to cross the bridge, you've got to pay the toll", meaning if you want alcohol, you gotta pay for it. Too bad most of them couldn't read!.

Re: Curious about Monikers

Mine is the Anglicized first syllable of my Norwegian maiden name. First acquired it in college when my sorority sisters didn't want to write out my entire last name or risk misspelling my first name.

Raised and educated four kids; hence I am poor and a boy at heart.

Poboy, short for poor ol boy.

Re: Curious about Monikers

Simple: i'm cute and fuzzy and my sons nickname is "bunny". He was referred to as "the bun" by my wife for many months before we picked a name, and it stuck.

No really....cute AND fuzzy....

A name I originally used playing MMORPGs. It's based on my name, Kirk, and a (possibly imaginary) tendency to think differently.

Re: Curious about Monikers

I have always loved daydreaming, so I am the Dreamer. It started in childhood. We were extremely poor and did not have a TV. The first books that I can remember getting out of the public library were Raggedy Ann and Andy books and then the Bobbsey Twins and Nancy Drew. I loved reading the books and then daydreaming about what it would be like to have their lives. I still love reading and now I love to dream about traveling to exotic places!

I love the image Unfortuneately in college I was a geek. As my then 90 year old Grandmother once said, in effect, "I behaved myself when it was important, now I can do as I damn please!" And she did.

Maybe now is the time to live up to my nick name.
