How Did You Come Up With Your Screen Name
 
I always wonder how people come up with screen names. My SN comes from the word Believe that I have all over my house and I have tattooed on my foot and my birthday.

If you care to share, I would love to know.

Years ago I had a dream when I was way hungover... an army of little men were stacking lead cubes in all the recesses of my skull. I told a friend this, and her and her husband have called me cube ever since, that's like 25 years ago... so it is a nickname I've had for years and it is related to what happens when I drink too much.... 75 is the year I graduated HS... yea, I'm an old guy, young at heart though!!

Mark

(I usually just prefer Mark... probably would have used another screen name if I thought my posts were gonna number over a thousand :))

After the main character in an Ann Rice book - I thought she was very hip and cool.

And I hadn't heard about Rowan Atkinson aka Mr. Bean by that time.

ex D-Boy 06-15-2009 12:06 PM

I used to be very into hip hop and rappers refer to a "Dope Boy" as being a dealer for drugs like crack or heroin. Since that was my past and I was ready for a positive change I slapped on the ex in front and voila ;)

I think mine is pretty obvious. Want to Live. Came up with it when my dr. told me if I didn't change my ways I would be dead way to early.

I am with Jade09 in that Jade is my most favorite healing stone....some of the things it works with are:

Jade is said to be a good first gemstone for a child.
Aids in problem solving, and helps proneness to accidents and reaching dreams, goals and ideals. It brings balance, justice, modesty, courage, wisdom, compassion, and longevity.

Jade is noted for being good for the skin, hair, lymphatic system, bones, joints/hips, spleen, bladder, heart, immune system, gallbladder, kidneys, muscles and the entire female reproductive system and fertility.

Helps PMS Menstrual problems, period pain, asthma, bacterial and viral infections, eye disorders, general malaise, high blood pressure, and schizophrenia.

Jade is good for emotional balance, confidence, and grounding. helps negativity. Promotes dreams and dream recall when placed under the pillow. Brings connection to ancient civilizations and wisdom, protection, peace (both inner and outer), and shamanic access to spirit worlds.



I wear it everyday and the number 19 is my husbands number when he played pro-hockey =)
