Hey, sometimes I wonder things about the people I "talk" to here every day, and rather than ask each person, I thought I'd put this up and see if anyone responds!

Where are you, geographically speaking?

What's your nickname on FS mean or where did it come from?



For me, I'm from Maryland in the U.S.

My nickname is an old highschool nickname "amry" with my last initial added on, thus "amryk". My real name is Amy, but not sure how it became "amry" in highschool.

How about you? Smile

Hi, Red Hot Beach Bod Buddy! Good question, I often wonder the same thing. I'm from North Carolina (foothills)and my name is way to self explainatory. Karen is my name and fit4life is my mantra/goal! Can't wait to keep checking your post! Cool

It's actually kind of funny that you posted this because I was just thinking this morning how cool it would be to know where everyone lives Smile

I live just outside of Portland, Oregon-- actually in Vancouver, Washington,(US) although I spend quite a bit of time traveling. That's why I thought it would be nice to know... could be a way to meet more FS people in person if possible. I also like the earlier comment by LeAnn about finding someone from each of the states.

My name is pretty self explanatory as well... First name and last initial. If I'd been thinking when I signed up, I probably would have made it DoubleT, which is my nickname at work-- I'm usually called Trina and my last name starts with a T....

Howdy! I hail from Montreal, Quebec, Canada. I just moved here last year after living 33 of my 44 years in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

Funny thing, I notice that most of you folks from the USA mention your state and/or city but not your country! I wonder why that is? A peculiar phenomenon!

My screen name origin should be pretty self explanatory. No story there!

Hello, World! I am living in Vermont. Been here for almost 3 years moved from Virginia where I had lived all my life. Life is ALOT slower which is not a bad thing.

My FS name is a combination...NE for New England....MAW for the name by granddaughters call me (nice, huh? always wanted to be Grammie!)

Have a wonderful Labor Day weekend! Hopefully there will be less of each of us on Monday!

evelyn, I said U.S.!! Trying to be conscious of the big, big world! Were you trying to say we are self-centered here? Hmmm... I can see that. Something to work on! Maybe once we see how many people here are NOT from the U.S., it will sink in! Embarassed

I wasn't making jabs at my neighbour country! I just thought it was odd in comparison. Maybe I'm too observant for my own good!

I'm from Fort Myers, Florida (US Smile My name is Cindy, and this guy I briefly dated in 2005 started calling me Cindy Lou Who (Cindy Loo Hoo?) like from the Grinch movie. That's my favorite Christmas movie, and I liked the name, so, bored with my old screenname, I tried to start using cindylouwho. however, other people on the internet seem to like that name, too, so I replaced the Lou with my actual first name, which is Lynn.

That's funny, now that I think about it most of the other forums I belong to us Americans do the same thing even though there are other countries represented. I guess we just assume everyone knows where are states are placed on the world. Though to be honest I have a problem placing most of the Midwest.
