Mine is boring...my first name is Bertha and '79 is the year I was born. My parents *claim* they named me after my grandmother, but I choose to believe they were closet Deadheads and named me after the Grateful Dead song 'Bertha'.  Wink

The fact that Kaesea is my cat's name is not too original. But the way I came up with the name Kaesea (pronounced "Casey") is...

After arguing about naming the cat for several weeks (poor nameless kitty), my partner at the time suggested "Casey." Or, at least, that's what I thought he was suggesting. He was actually suggesting "KC" When I asked him what "KC" stood for, he just said he liked the sound of the name, but didn't like the spelling "C-A-S-E-Y." Without an explanation for what "KC" stood for, I wasn't going for it (I could just imagine forever after: "What does KC stand for?" "Um... I don't really know..." Duh.)

So I came up with around 20 different phonetic spellings for the sounds /kay see/ and we both agreed on "Kaesea." If my cat had to go to school, he'd probably hate me. At the vet, they read it and say hesitantly "Um... Ca-uh-see-ah?" Plus, I guess it looks kind of feminine (like Chelsea?) and he's a fluffy cat, so everyone thinks he's a girl. Poor dear.

But it has ended up being rather handy for me, because I've never bumped into another Kaesea on the net (there are a couple out there, but I guess we don't run in the same circles), so I've always been able to secure it as a user name, email address, etc.

Oh, yeah... years later I figured out that "K" and "C" were mine and my partner's first initials. So cheesy... even he was embarrassed to admit it to me (although he did confirm this when confronted). We're long broken up, so I'm glad I didn't go that route... I prefer to think it stood for "Kitty Cat" all along.

Ironically, Kaesea is not the cat pictured in my avatar. That's Biscuit. Biscuit never has any trouble with people mispronouncing his name. People do, however, think that he is a dog.

Poor kitties. With their goofy names, I've inflicted identity crises upon them. Sometimes, they slam their little kitty doors and yell, "I hate you!" Or at least, I think that's what they're saying. Maybe they're saying, "More tuna!"

I collect pretty words (who doesn't?) and decibel is one of'em! Right?

I've always been good at scoring high digits in the decibel department. Grin Also, my beloved mom calls me Miss Decibel sometimes to honor (?) this popular and really cheezy Swedish 70's song called just that! And it goes a little something like this:

Miss Decibel, var fr du alla ljud ifrn,
-something something, alla hga toner,
tra-la-la-la and so on...

Catchy huh? Cheesy

Well this is kinda cheesy but i have green eyes and my boyfriend calls me green-eyed-lady, ocean-lady, its from some song or something. anyways i kinda like it and its the closest thing i have to a nickname, no thats not true -- my name (teri) is technically a nick name, because my 'real name' is teresa, but nobody ever calls me that. anyways thats my story...

The song is called, interestingly enough, "Green Eyed Lady," and it's by Sugarloaf.

deadpixel comes from the name of my film production company, which is still being gotten off the ground, dead pixel productions.  mr. pixel was working on my computer one night, and we were drinking wine, and thanks to a dead pixel on the screen, we thought that was the most brilliant name for a production company ever.  wine is funny like that.

Mine's a translation of my name, followed by my birthstone, then my favourite number.

My username is an homage to the front man for my favorite band, The Tragically Hip.
His name is Gord Downie, so I took "Gord" and made it G Downie and femmed it up by making G into gee. I thought about Tragically Hip, but that's too much hype to live up to.  Wink
