Ever been given a nickname or a bunch of nicknames from groups, family friends that stuck with you for a bit or for life!. Post atleast 3 nicknames that have been given to you & a short story on how you earned it!.
I have been given various nicknames by loads of people. i'll just post a few though
FOO CHUM BUM
- When people ask me how i got this name, i just *sigh & say "long story".... I will finally reveal, apart from my school friends that gave me this name. I used to be very skinny, most people would make fun and be like, "i swear just blow air Make FOO, I'm sure he'll fall or flip over. the word CHUM i later attained and majority from the girls in our school whom i ended just being friends with (sigh), the word started to spread. and i was that "friend" "chum".
BUM is epic cause i really had no butt or bum as you would put it, Yup, its just the way things were. Nature or God found it funny or just nothing, no matter what pants i wore, it was just nothing there. Hence earned the name FOO CHUM BUM through the other half of my school life and beyond, still popular till date.
STAR or NOX
- By my online gaming friends, short for the actual names i use online like Astartes (star) - Noxicat (Nox)
- I spend ALOT of time on the net, usually on forums gaming sites gaming radio stations, most gamers know be by this name as well if not Rennie which is also another ghost or screen name i have. The name speaks for itself, i'm obsessed with birds, flight, planes, astronomy, but yeah BIRDS!.
i know i made the post long. But i find it interesting if not hilarious at some of the nicknames i come across and usually use them for years after i become good friends with someone, Even loved ones have crazy nicknames i'm sure they call each other. If you're reading this post. I would very much like to know what they call you!
My most recent (And incredibly annoying) nickname is:
A) Because being called Amelia when my name is clearly Amy annoys me, and B) Because when you type in my second name into word, spell check tells you it is wrong, and the correction is Gaylord. Terribly annoying!
This has stuck by me for a long time, hence the username. It came about because I'm a bright, happy, and cheerful person. I also like to draw rainbows!
Probably the most unimaginative nickname I've ever had, it was created by a friend in primary school because they found out my middle name was Porter...
When I had my first laptop about 8 years ago, my husband wanted me to give it a name (user name). I was a little tipsy that evening and insisted that it be called Bob.
Billabongbob was a password that my eldest daughter used during her first year at university, so I kinda pinched it, as Bob was a bit of a theme.
I used it as a password for awhile, but it soon became a username that has stuck. It has now become one of my main online presence handles, often being shortened to Billa or just Bob. Even my friends use this nickname for me.
My other nickname is Mother Bear. I was given this by my second daughter a few years ago, she must of been about 18 or 19 at the time. Now all four of my daughters call me this, as well as most of their friends. I have no idea how it came about, she just used it one day and it has stuck since. I really don't mind their friends calling me Mother Bear either, it builds familiarity and makes life a lot easier.
Just 'Dee' by my family and close friends--shortened version of my first name.
I can't think of any other (nice) nicknames,

Why do you think the hub with the highest score was scored higher than your others? Interested to know.

Seems a bit ridiculous to have to wait 2 days for info on earnings. What is the hold up? Should we explore other options?
