Hey all! I have only been a member since April so I don't know if this has already been discussed. I find the forum members names (handles so to speak) very interesting. So, I would like to know what does your screen name mean? Obviously, some are self explanatory such as mine. Others I can't figure out. As for me. I love Atlantic City and my favorite casino is Ballys. How about yours?

I use my wife's nickname which was derived from her surname ie CHU. I have never gone to Vegas before although I have been to Macau and many of the gambling cruise ships located in Hong Kong. When I retire I will definitely pay Vegas a visit.

Ha ha! Seinfeld fan here too. :thumbsup:

Mine's pretty much a given - Casinomeister - that's me. :D

But in the Prima Network I'm known as beetleB. I spent 11 years in the army, and most everyone - including some of my commanders called me "Beetle" (ref. Beetle Bailey).

I got my dog when I was in Spain quite a while back. In Spain Peralis is quite a common surname and we found that most police officers were named that as well. So we thought it would be funny to name the dog "Kapitan Peralis" so that when we were walking him and we saw a police officer, we shouted Kapitan Peralis out very loudly. Most of the time, the police officer would look and ask what he could do for us and we would ignore him and run towards the dog.

Yes... we were young :D

Well if that guy above me is serious - he mustn't half walk funny! :D
(Shoot! Bears snuck one in there - I was referring to Mr.Balls!)

My handle is pretty obvious really - I sit on the throne when I'm playing!

Just a thought... This is an intersting thread for someone who wants to learn some really private info of the members of the forum that may use the same usernames in casinos... And someone with imagination could also guess some passwords of some members... Just a thought.... :what:

Life long fan of the (US) football team, the Green Bay Packers........who shamed us all with a horrific performance on Monday night. But loyal fan that I am, I'm keeping my name (for now, at least) :machinegu

What's in a name

A good friend and I were at a work seminar / conference together and he had to type in our first names. He incorrectly typed my name as "Darem" and it came up on the big screen at the conference and just stuck as a nickname from then on. I had to add the 1 to have 6 characters. And the picture? I just went from being one type of princess to another! I prefer fairy tales to this real, ugly world we live in. :)

Mine came from one of favorite past times, camping - I married a man who preferred hotel rooms to tents so if I wanted to teach my son what my father had taught me camping, I would have to do it myself. And I did. Ive taken out all my preschool mom buddies camping, most had never been before..we always brought the little ones with us, I taught them all how to chop wood, build a fire, pitch a tent, hook worms and clean fish.(age appropriate of course!) One little girl refused to touch anything yucky, she put her hands on her hips and said "Im just a frufrugirl, I only do GIRL things!". The moms all started calling me frufrugirl whenever they wanted me to do a yucky thing and it just stuck.

and the hotel man eventually had to get a hotel to live in!!
