Now that I have your attention, I was curious as to what special meaning your names and avatars have. Why did you choose them?

For me, I chose Calejo because it is made from the first 2 letters of my family names (except mine). Carlos, Leala, Josie, and Joshua. The avatar because I think he's funny and you can ask anyone who knows me well enough, I'm bit of a screwball. My hubby calls me animated. I'm not sure how to take that....

lol.. too funny Calejo ... well mine is a joke between me and my daughter.. I got a new computer a few years ago and I gave her my old one... she called me and asked me to download a program and go online to chat with her because she was bored and needed to be entertained... thus the name n-ter-tayne-me .. a different way of spelling "entertain me" as I had a very hard time coming up w/a name that hadn't been taken already .. the avatar was just something I found and liked.. when I get bored, I change it lol

Calejo...that is a cute avatar and it is definitely silly! Well...my name is traci...and my avatar comes from my cheerleader daughter kasey! I wanted to change my avatar to a volleyball player because she plays volleyball too...However, since I am going to be the cheerleading coach this year...she wants me to wait until football season is over!!!! icon_razz.gif

I didn't pick "Fytar"! It was chosen for me! A guy that was good friends with me liked me a little more than I knew. Well, his brother thought it would be cute to put my name on his computer screen. I walked in one day and saw "Funky Young Tarina" ping-ponging back and forth across the screen! This was his screensaver!! The joke was that you are supposed to sing it to the tune of "Funky Cold Medina"! My roommate then caught the bug and decided to create a Yahoo account for me and needed more than three letters (FYT), but less than 16 (FunkyYoungTarina), so she mixed it - that is how I became FYTar! No joke!

My avatar I chose because it was laid back and goofy at the same time! That is me!

Well, my name is pretty self-explanatory....JennT=Jennifer Thompson. The avatar - whlie trying to think up names for a cake business, my dad suggested "The Flying Cake" - I went along with it for a while & I found the graphic in one of my programs...couldn't believe I found a flying cake!! lol Even though I'm thinking it might not be the best name for a business, I still love the graphic, so I thought I'd use it here. icon_smile.gif

I think ly name is one of the most self explanatory ones out there icon_smile.gif It is from my name........wait for it.......Gina Juarez icon_eek.gif I am not very creative, and the only other nick I have ever used involved the now defunct music group N'Sync, so I didn't want to go with that one. My avatar, I love dancing, and I think that the little girl shaking her groove thang is cute. thumbs_up.gif

Cute topic.....mine is pretty straight forward too! However, Lisa, the Avatar Queen, made it twinkle for me. Since I never seem to find anything with my name spelled my way, I thought I would use that as my avatar!

Well, I'm pretty easy to figure out too. I'm Ginger Dixon and my avatar is because I love dogs and I love cake. I have the cutest bear doing a flip I want to change to but I can't get it to work. I'm a graphic artist so you'd think I could it to work. Honestly, I didn't know how cool this website was going to be when I signed up so I didn't put that much effort into my screen name. A confession I'm not proud of icon_smile.gif

Mine is pretty simple too, my name is Kristina Fisher and I love making cakes, henceforth, Fishercakes. I am not very creative with names icon_surprised.gif

I love yellow roses and frankly it is the only avatar that I could find that I liked. If anyone has a site they could recommend for avatars with cakes...I would love to hear from you!!

Thanks.

Well, mine is just the name of my business. I asked my parents for advice on the name, since I am not terribly creative unless I have inspiration and it's a spin off Shakespeare's "As You Like It". I thought it was cute. As far my avatar...well, I don't have one. I think it would be fun to, but I tell you, between chasing a 3 month and 21 month old around all day on top of another home business...I can never seem to remember to look! Besides, I don't have the slightest idea on what I would choose yet...alas. Hmmm...although I do have a pic of my 4th of July cake on one of the Southern Living at Home products I sell...could work. If only one of my kid's fingers or toes were in the picture too.... icon_smile.gif

Edited to add: well, picture uploaded...not bad...guess I'll keep it for now! icon_smile.gif

THANK YOU for posting this topic because I finally know how to pronounce Ntertayneme's name! LOL I could not figure that out for the life of me. Duh.

I got mine from Iron Chef...Iron Baker. Some get a laugh from it, some think I work with iron. icon_lol.gif

The avatar is a filler for the moment. I can't find anything I like and is fitting. The ones I did like, wouldn't fit in the space allowed. So I saw this rose and used it for the time being.

My very good friend loves to come up with strange nicknames for everyone. icon_rolleyes.gif Mine-dandelion-didn't really stick, but we came up with this whole spiritual thing about dandelions and their seeds going "into beyond" (that's where my avatar comes from--I photoshoped it myself!) Now i use dandelion as my screen name for almost everything.

I chose mine because i am not creative when it comes to picking 'names'. Also because I am very proud to be a mom and even more proud that i have two beautiful little girls.

I don't have an avatar because I don't know how to get one and I want something special.

This IS a great thread!

I'm new (relatively new, I guess) to Cake Central and it's great to get to know a little about everyone... And Cheryl, I always wondered about your screen name too - now I know! lol...

The only other forum I belong to is BabyCentre. When I signed up there (five months pregnant for my July, 2004 baby) I used *Biscat*. My cat's name is actually BisCUIT but someone called her BisCAT and it stuck. I used it here as it is not generally taken (lol) and so that anyone who knows me from BBC will know me here... icon_smile.gif

My avatar is my little girl. I started making cakes once I realized how bad I was at decorating her first birthday cake. That was a month ago - I've come a long way but have a long way to go!

Sorry to make this a book. Great to see the screen names and thought behind them!

Too funny...I couldn't figure it out for the longest time! In my mind I just saw netanyahu...as in Benjamin Netanyahu!

Sorry Cheryl! It's a cute name...I'm just a little dense sometimes!!

My Nanny has called me dodibug since I was little so there you go! And I love gerber daisies. I have grown them in the past but sadly we had a flower funeral not long ago so I guess I have to start over!!

BTW JennT-one of my favorites restaurant here in New Orleans called Juan's Flying Burrito and it is very successful! I highly recommend it if anyone comes to town!!

ps-I am not a paid spokeswoman for Juan's Flying Burrito but as often as I have eaten there I should own stock! icon_lol.gif

Hi All, my screen name is a nickname I have had since I was very young. It's a combo of my first name, Sabrina and my middle name, Larae. (pronounced La-Ray) I choose my Avatar (if it will show up) because I grew up in a small town in Oregon that produces the best cherries in the world! I miss seing hundreds of acres of cherry trees in bloom every year icon_cry.gif I am sure I will change it again soon.

My user name was our first email address when we became a family...I use it for everything so I never forget what it is. J for John (my husband), J for John Marshall (our son) and A for Ashley (me). Scog is the first half of our last name - Scoggins. I guess I should have added a C in there when our daughter Caitlin was born. Oh well, I'd probably forget it if I started changing it.

Okay, I just picked an avatar...it looks like a smoke bomb. My husband is always telling me I have a short fuse because of my red hair but to him it's all smoke. He can make me laugh in a second flat.

wow, great thread....and also i can stop trying to say in my mind netertanme!!!!! couldnt figure that one out either.
my name is melodyscakes, not original i know, i wanted cakebakinmamma, but couldnt get it to register with my email or some technical prob. so when i put in melodyscakes it finally worked and let me log on....so i was stuck with the less creative name. lisa helped me find my aviator. a musical note coming out of a cake. not as creative as most of yours, but it works.
melody

p.s. i feel like i know some of you better now, this really is a great thead!

Well, mine is only the thrid name I've used as a handle in all of my years .... When I started on BBS' I started out as Duckie.... because I loved this group called The Killer Duck Band, then after I got married and had kids I became MamaDuckie, for obvious reasons, and now I'm just plain old Debsuewoo.... the first three letters of my first, middle, and last names. Quite catchy too, I think.

When I registered the one that I wanted was taken, Brownies. A friend of mine calls me Brownies, because my maiden name is Brown, but he says that I'm brown and sweet-brownies. TOO FUNNY! I love it!

Hello. My name is Brandi.
Luv2cake is what I love to do whenever I get a chance! I know I am not alone when I tell you that I jump at any chance to do a cake for any reason. I was a special education teacher before becoming a Mommy and now I stay home with my 13 month old son. I am having the time of my life with him and now that Ihave learned to decorate cakes, I am loving life even more.

I also get a chance to make a little "play money" for vacations and other fun stuff. I luv2 cake!
My avatar is just a cute animated picture I found. I also heard a saying...."frogs have it easy, they can eat what bugs them."

So fun!
