I like using Goodweed of the North, or GW, or Weed, or Goodweed. It tells a bit about me better than does my real name, which I'm not afraid to give out either (Bob for any who want to know). I live in and love the North; I never grew like a "bad weed" as my father used to tell me I would; and people often mistake Goodweed as a kind of illicit substance, which couldn't be further from the truth in my case. So it's a private joke against any who would jump to conclusions. Also, I don't believe there are any bad weeds, just many that we don't know the proper usefullness of.

So there you have it. I'm quirky, odd, fun-loving, and like to walk a bit off the beaten path, but always try to walk the up-lifting path and sow smiles and gather wisdom as I travel.

Call me Bob if you need to, but know that I'm Goodweed of the North.

Seeeeeeeya; Goodweed of the North

Well..... I'm Satin. Sattie just happened to be a name folks started using at work. I think many folks are afraid of the name Satin and I am usually referred to as Satan, Stain, Satine etc..... Not sure where my folks got the idea for it. But it sure gave me issues as I was growing up. Not so bad now, just when the occasional telemarkerter calls and asks for satan, I tell them to hold on and I will go get him for ya!!!!

Dead thread time!

Yeah, sattie, sometimes I wonder what parents were thinking when they named their children. When my ex and I were trying to come up with a name for our first son, Shawn, part of our consideration was how his initials would play out. At that time my last name started with a "B." Obviously we couldn't use Orville as his middle name. Who wants their child to be known as a S.O.B.? Ruled that out right away.

I wanted to use the traditional Sean but, because we realized how children can be, we opted for the more modern "Shawn." I'm of Irish heritage, so his grandfather (my Daddy), John, was satisfied as was his grandfather, John, on his father's side, who was Scotch/English. We were able to name him John without spelling it "John."

Last name was problematic, too, which meant we had to be careful what first name we paired with it as well. Won't go there. Just trust me.
