Because I like the mystique? I don't want to know what you're all called - in my head you all have birth certificates with things like "DragonButter" on. And I like it! It's exotic and glam and I want it to STAY THAT WAY! <stamps foot and sulks>

I am indeed Unknown.

I didn't think that Maureen was particularly exotic or glam, but thanks anyway!grin

I know a few rl names but tbh, it just confuses the hell out of me, when they e-mail me!

oh agree Habbibu - in fact I have met up with MNers in RL and still think of them as their screen-names.

Add to that my RL name is fairly unusual, alright to out yourself if you're a Sarah or a Jane...

I agree Habbibu.

I know what you mean (although I am on that thread, my first name is Stealth).
I have a mental image of people in my mind, when I see a photo it tends to ruin it a bit (no matter how good looking they are!) My mind is not very imaginative and a bit stereotypical, so e.g., I have a vague blurry image of someone, based on their MN name. I learn they are tall, my mind grows them to 6ft. I learn they are Scottish, my mind adds red hair and a tartan beret

No! You are MaureenMLove, pronounced Mo'Reenum'luv. NOT MAUREEN! <stamps foot again. hurts foot a bit>

I am not a boy

Or a dog

I am keeping my mystique, too

<<taps nose>>

{hijack - went to the Leisure Pool at Leven last week and thought of you - random, eh?}

Habbibu Wed 13-Aug-08 20:52:35

Go on then, Stealth, "describe" me...

Habbibu Wed 13-Aug-08 20:53:17

v.random, boys, as I've never been to Leven. But oddly touching, nonetheless.

When I read 'SlartyBartFast' it gets stuck in my head and for the rest of the day I walk around muttering 'slartybartfast slartybartfast'.

It doesn't happen with any other name.

Weird huh?

StealthPolarBear Wed 13-Aug-08 20:56:03

Not much to tell I'm afraid - you're wearing a bib.
Told you my mind's not very imaginative!

<steps away from the muttering weirdy>

StealthPolarBear Wed 13-Aug-08 20:58:16

you look a bit like the janitor out of scrubs, but a bit more...mild and cowering. You hold a mop.
See! Really not good!

Habbibu Wed 13-Aug-08 20:58:56

mmj - don't bother. Apparently I'm a big grown -up baby like those men in weird fetish clubs. Am I wearing a nappy too, Stealth?

WideWebWitch Wed 13-Aug-08 20:59:01

link please

StealthPolarBear Wed 13-Aug-08 20:59:10

Whenever I see sheepgomeep the name makes me smile and I remember it for the rest of the day too!

OracleInaCoracle Wed 13-Aug-08 20:59:33

there are some mners that i always think of by their rl names and some that i "know" just as well who i always think of as their mn names. lilred is known in the lissie house by her rl name whereas lulu will always be lulumama

MarkStretch Wed 13-Aug-08 20:59:58


StealthPolarBear Wed 13-Aug-08 21:00:21

Sorry Habbibu blush it's not me it's my mind. No, no nappy, it's all very blurry outside the bib area.
What does your name mean, btw? That will probably change my image!

Is this what you wanted, www?
