What were you going for when you chose your user name?

Something about your kids, your hobbies, your career? Was it oh ffs the last 12 names I've tried are taken so I'll type something totally random and meaningless? Was it about your relationship specifically with CM?

Mine's a hobby thing (obviously), but I was amazed it was available at all, there are hundreds of NotPanickings on every major site out there, and I don't think anyone has it twice.

  • See FFA, I thought it was a clever quip about how your house full of kids is like a "free for all". LOL, I'm too analytical for my own good.

    Mine is because my 2 girls & myself are all Libras (born between 9/23--10/22). And, now that it's just us, I thought I'd pick a name representing us. Since many days it feels like it's just my girls & I against the world. Some think it's due to the Perfect Circle song but, it's not. I didn't even think of that when I picked my SN.
