following on from the "best nicknames" thread, I realised that my nickname was as boring as watching paint dry, so after 2.5 years I have changed it...

meet 2starbabes (references my RL name and the fact that I have two lovely DS's).

Hello again!

RTKangaMummy Mon 21-Feb-05 19:47:08

2starbabes hello

2starbabes Mon 21-Feb-05 19:51:35

hello - will take some getting used to will this new name. I also dread the round of explanations...

cazzybabs Mon 21-Feb-05 19:55:12

What was wrong with dejags - I always thought it was quite unusaul? But I bet your babies are stars

2starbabes Mon 21-Feb-05 19:57:54

thanks Cazzybabs, I was just bored of myself I guess and you are right my boys are angels and I love them madly (sick puky emoticon needed).

katierocket Mon 21-Feb-05 20:07:54

oh nooooooooo. DOn't change dejags, it's you.

2starbabes Mon 21-Feb-05 20:10:20

too late Katierocket, I am feeling reckless tonight (doesn't happen very often)

DH better check my packet of pills in the morning

katierocket Mon 21-Feb-05 20:11:39

I was nasa for a few months but it just didn't feel right. oh well don't come crying to me when you realise you feel all odd and out of place

2starbabes Mon 21-Feb-05 20:13:48

you are probably right Katie - I identify much better with your original name.

JanH Mon 21-Feb-05 20:21:27

I liked dejags (the name!), didn't think it boring and always knew exactly who you were (SA connections, sadly obnoxious parents etc) - prob won't know who you are now!

kr, only now you have changed back do I know who you were and understand the name nasa - durr!

Miaou Mon 21-Feb-05 20:24:09

Just make sure you add "used to be dejags" after every post for at least a month - I missed GeorginaA's name change, and katierocket's (when she changed to nasa), and NCMM (NOT typing it all) - I felt "lost" for a bit until I discovered where/who they were again!

2starbabes Mon 21-Feb-05 20:24:14

dont do this to me - I am appalingly indecisive at the best of times. I'll sleep on it but the odds are good I'll change back

jodee Mon 21-Feb-05 20:25:36

Oh no, not you as well Dejags! Think I'm getting a headache ...

emmatmg Mon 21-Feb-05 20:26:46

plus, when you forget you've cganged it and search for a post you've made looking for you old name.........that why I'm stuck with mine.....tried it once.....forgot I'd changed etc etc

katierocket Mon 21-Feb-05 20:27:34

Seeeeee...dejags, don't do it...it's just not right.

dejags Mon 21-Feb-05 20:29:13

ok dont even need to sleep on it, have decided that Katierocket is absolutely right - it feels weird.

I am dejags again

(dejags makes mental note to self to keep name but strive to steer clear of wallflowerdom)

JanH Mon 21-Feb-05 20:29:24

Miaou, that's exactly it - if you happen to be around at the time (as I was for Georgina's, luckily!) you notice and remember but if not you flounder forever after.

Maybe MN should maintain a register!

dejags Mon 21-Feb-05 20:30:07

how weird that I could become so attached to a cyber name - what is the world coming to

jodee Mon 21-Feb-05 20:31:08

Hooray! She's back! Never a wallflower, Dejags (now, as for me, my name is duller than a really dull thing!)

dejags Mon 21-Feb-05 20:32:34

but Jodee - you are named after a supermodel with a gazillion pounds

Miaou Mon 21-Feb-05 20:32:48

We've got a register ... it's called JanH!

dejags Mon 21-Feb-05 20:33:34

LOL miaou!

jodee Mon 21-Feb-05 20:36:59

Thanks Dejags, never occurred to me! <<sashays off to apply expensive make-up>>
