Question of the Day - May 26th

How did you choose your display name??

is it your real name or was it a spur of the moment type thing?

personally, i'v used Survivorgirl in other forums, actually one of the first time i used it was in a survivor forum and then from then, it's just sorta stuck.
you?

I'm creative by nature, but not so with my display name. It's simply my name. Well, my nickname. My name is Caitlin.

Survivor Girl, way back there was a thread re what does your screen name mean or how did you choose your name. You can find it in a search here. Curious, you don't have to answer if you don't want to - when your birthday came up (sorry if I miised it), next to your name said 15. Wondering are you 15 years old? You seem much more knowledgable re cooking for someone your age. Does Survivor girl have something to do with your age? Is your avatar (there's another thread about that) a pic of you? Just curious.

Seven years ago Katie inspired me to start writing a newspaper column as she was doing. Hers was called "Everyday Pleasures." I wanted to write stuff that guys could relate to, so I called it "Guy Stuff." I needed a pen name that would connote a real guy image.

Somehow the name "Buck" did that for me. It's been that way ever since.

We've been syndicated for years and love it.
