The Origin Of allen0187

So its been almost twenty-four hours since my last post... so much for trying to write at least three posts a day to meet the (read about it here, ) this month of March. Well, if you must know, real life got in the way of my daily writing. I'm not worried though. My daily activities today gave me more than enough ideas for posts. It is just a matter of time or rather a question if I can find the time to write those posts floating inside my head. Well, this is some sort of introductory post. Not the usual introductory post that newbies applying for membership here in Persona Paper write. I'm writing about the &origins of my handle name. I've always used 'allen0187' even during my myLot days. Writing the name in small case is on purpose. I took the cue from myLot. I figured if I wrote 'allen0187' as 'aLLen0187', it would be an obvious ripoff of the style of myLot so I decided to use small case all the way. As for the numbers after the name, 187 is the number of ex-girlfriends that I've had. 0 is the number of girls who knew that they were my girlfriend at that time! LOL! Seriously,'187', is the police call sign for murder. I got it from one of my favorite rap artist, . Now, I don't want to ruffle any feathers so I'll stop there. So, what's the story behind your ?

I love to have an attic all by myself and love to have tower where I can spend all my day writing... nothing but to write and see the world from there... See the sky and the ground... to see the birds flying, and to really see the ray of sunshine. God bless.

Interesting. I have been 'celticeagle' since about 2005. It just came to me and was originally my email address when I was on AOL.

allen0187 Ha ha great story man! That reminds a joke of a guy who wanted to wind the lottery and went to a fortune teller, he was asked how many girlfriends he'd had and he said 25, so the fortune teller to buy the lottery number ending in 25. Sure enough the winner number ending in 00 emoticon :winking: My username is just my initial and my last name, not very creative on that department, ha?

wolfgirl569 I like your username, what about the numbers after wolfgirl?

nbaquero wrote on March 5, 2015, 11:54 AM

celticeagle I like your username too, have you had any other online names?

wolfgirl569 wrote on March 5, 2015, 12:32 PM

just what the computer suggested back then. That was the easiest combination of the choices they gave me to remember

wolfgirl569 Ok, well I would have suggested something like wolfgirl001 emoticon :winking:

I'm just plain donrothra. Don Rothra, to be exact. My real name is Donald but I go by Don because, although I'm 74 years old, I'm not old. I've learned, in my song writing career that handles can get you into trouble with the IRS and the bank. If you use a handle and someone sends a paycheck to you in the name of your handle, you will have to go through H--- getting it cashed. I use my real name on everything because I'm proud that someone recognizes me for who I am. I guess it's also an ego thing.

My name is an Italian word that means hedgehog. I actually wanted to use the Italian word for squirrel, but I always forgot how to spell it. LOL I picked Porcospino instead. My name is Italian, because I have lived in Italy. It was a very happy period in my life.

Love the username my friend. I always thought you were a Boston Celtics fan and was into eagles. LOL! Or perhaps a Celtic warrior and your emblem is that of a fierce eagle!

allen0187 wrote on March 5, 2015, 6:25 PM

That absolutely makes sense.

allen0187 wrote on March 5, 2015, 6:26 PM

I actually thought you are a die-hard NBA fan man!

allen0187 wrote on March 5, 2015, 6:27 PM

Well, that makes a lot of sense my friend. I don't think it is an ego thing. Mainly, proud of one's accomplishments and the name attached to those accomplishments.

allen0187 wrote on March 5, 2015, 6:28 PM

We've been online writing buddies for a long time and this is all new to me Porcospino . Glad that you shared that info.

allen0187 wrote on March 5, 2015, 8:55 PM

crowntower ... now that makes sense!

Bodie is the nickname I've called my son since he was born and Mor means "mother" in Swedish. (My dad emigrated from Sweden to Canada.)
