Javasmom asked Nancy how she came up with her username. I'd be interested in knowing how a lot of us came up with our usernames. Mine's obvious. I'm Buddysmom because I'm Buddy's mom. Everywhere else I'm yellalablady (yella lab lady). That's also pretty obvious.

Some years ago I was seeing two 'tween agers, a brother and sister, in therapy (because it was suspected they'd been abused by their mother) and they had a charming sense of humor. They enjoyed referring to or calling me (phonetically) "Dee-Are Pee-Are".
So, since most friends call me "Bob", it was easy to add the "Pr." to it.

My user name is a mix of my dogs name and nickname. Angel is her name and I call her "puppy dog" or just "puppy". She isn't a puppy anymore...but she is my puppy and always will be as far as I'm concerned. :P Plus "Angel" was given to her before I could name her...so I didn't have a choice in her name (she is NO angel that's for sure. =]). So, that's the story behind my username. Nothing too fun...but that's why.
I wanted Weck, the first four letters of my last name, and a nickname that I (and my Dad and my brothers) have carried for AGES! But way back on the Acme board, weck was taken. And I wasn't interested in weck1 or weck2 or weck<insert-a-number>.
So I added d -- for Dan -- and have been dweck ever since.
I find it amusing that some read my name as dee-weck and others as dweck, as in rhyming with breck and fleck. Either way's fine w/me.
DWECK is also my license plate #.

Hmmmm! How did I come up with HersheyK's Dad? I will have to think about that for a while.
