Let me clear something up before I start. No, it doesn't NOT come from twilight, and I've had variations of this username for years before twilight came out! On another forum i'm on, I often get asked trivia questions on the movie, sort of like an open invitation.. granted, it makes me giggle and I try to answer them, people are very misled!

Now.

I need to explain my email, first.

My email is Canadianbella99. I'm Canadian (who would have thought lol) and I love the name bella, ever since I heard my friend as a child, get called Bella (short for Isabella) I just like the ring to it. I am not full of myself, and I didn't put it there because I think i'm purty, I just like the name. 99 for no reason at all, I don't even know why I put them there.

When I make usernames, I either use Canadianbella or Bella. Bella was taken here, so I used the Bella99 so as I couldn't be found from the other forums I go on (where I mainly use Canadianbella)

I hardly have a memory, so I picked something i'd remember (like 1/2 my email, which I use daily) rather then something food-y. Plus, I have a horrible imagination, my username would probably be something like "Feta"

Phew, still following?

It's as good a reason for a screen name as any other.

In Italian BELLA ( Prounced Bell La ) means Beautiful and in Spanish it is pronounced Bei Yah, and signifies beautiful too ...

Isabel or Isabella, was a very quintessential Queen in the late 1400s and 1500s ... She financed Christopher Colombus´ Navigation to El Salvador, Cuba, The Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico ...

Thus, beautiful queen !

Have nice evening ...

Ciao,
Margaux.

Very interesting replies.

I could never make gravy. I thought Bisto was gravy. We have a famous cook over here called Delia Smith, and on her website you could have a live chat with Delia and ask questions. I asked her how to make gravy. She answered me and I followed her method. It worked like a dream. I truly am the Queen of Gravy. And modest. My kids love my roast dinners with proper gravy, there is nothing like it.

matg, did you happened to keep my e-mail where I describe the origin of my "handle" if yes, please re-post here. I know we had thread like this long time ago, but we also have a lot of new people here.

Years ago, when I got my 1st computer and Internet connection (good old dial-up), I wanted to learn more about the Internet so joined my ISP's chat forum. When prompted for a username (I hate having to think fast) I chose "Nobody"(it struck me as funny at the time) someone else apparently thought it was clever as well and it was already taken, so I thought well if I can't be "nobody" then I will be "somebody". Well of course there are plenty of somebodies, and this name was not available to me. Frustration was setting in by this time and I was getting anxious to start my online adventure, I changed "body" to "bunny" and that is who I have been ever since. I use this as a username for just about everything.
