Well, julia cause of my name, and gulia because Julia was taken (be someone who has never posted ) And I wanted to keep my name in my screen name. My AIM screen name is brazzandrade and is Brazz for brazil (two z's because i'm awesome like that) and Andrade is my mom's maiden name (my middle name). I kind of wish I had made my screen name Brazzandrade for tpunk too but, whatever. Juliagulia is here to stay

UMmm I used to drink a lot of Molson Canadian, and I was asked to join a contest once to become the next Toronto Molsongirl.. I never joined the contest but I liked the sound of it.

PLUS my nickname has always been Flowers.. so I wanted something different

I actually wondered if that's what it stemmed from. Thought maybe it was an inside joke.

Hmmm... I'm not creative so I've never really had a "nickname." I have a very long hyphenated last name (I wasn't giving up my last name when I got married dammit!! ) so Jamie is my first name, Pea is the first part of my maiden name and -ski is the last half of my second last name.

Its weird that we where just talking about this at work tonight!!!

Once upon a time............

Well my name came about because 7 years ago i was just starting to use the internet but when i tried using kelly as a username it was always taken so was kel or kells and i didn't want to be kelly whatever number so i was talking to this guy online that was from dublin and he came up with bookofkels, for those of you that don't know what that is "The Bookofkells" is an illustrated manuscript writen by monks in the 8th or 9th century, it is on view in Dublin, i haven seen it myself but i will!

So i use this name for whatever i sign up to online because the username is never taken it seems to be mine, damn i should but the rights to it!!

And so is the story behind my name

Kel

but i remember, once upon a time, you were Jake the Punk. So, must mean that the reason wasn't just because you were Jake. So cough up the reasoning behind Jake the Punk.

LostFarmBoy, now the question is, are you a boy ?

I share the same name as this guy:




So, umm, The Joker is one of their most popular songs... and I am a bit of a joker, so...

Does that work?

Well, here at work (America West Airlines), I have to put my name on the paperwork I send to the "downline station" -- where the flight is going. It tells them what is loaded in the aircraft's bins, where and how much. Originally, I put "Michael D" on there because that was something a coworker always called me. Well, another Loadmaster started putting just "Michael" on his, and I didn't want my loads to be confused with his (his were a little haphazard and disorganized, at times). So, I had to come up with something completely different that people would recognize.

Since I love to travel the world, I thought "World Traveler Mike," but that didn't have ring to it. I had just been reading an article about the "world wide web," and thought, hmm....world wide Mike. Now, that (I thought) had a nice ring to it!

So, worldwidemike was born...

mo...you keeping up?

Well, oddly enough... one of those late night (not-so-sober) occasions on the internet I came across this site:

Universal Light Church

A few clicks, and poof! I was ordained... I even got to choose my title.

Well, since "Master of Universal Reality" was too long for a SN, I decided The Monsignor would do (The Godfather was already taken!)

So, now, I can perform all religious functions ('cept circumcision) and I have a catchy title and a certificate suitable for framing... what more can a guy ask?
