Default Forum names

So as I'm sitting on my deck sipping wine after a long day at work, a thought crossed my mind...how did all of you out there choose your forum names. Doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out where mine comes from, but I was just curious...

It's been so long that I actually cannot recall why I chose my idiotic pseudonym, and at 6'2" & 197-lbs I am definitely NOT fat! ..... ..... plus, after 25-years, circa-1997, I kinda like it. .... the name, fatlazyless! .... .... and there is absolutely NO DOUBT that I had a totally intelligent, reasonable, and economy minded reason why I chose it ...... you understand! ... blah-blah-blah! .....

I was characterizing my Lake experience when I signed up 18 years ago.

I’m here but no longer “new.” Each sunrise still reminds me of my good fortune.

And I have lived up to the saying at the bottom of my posts

When I was a very young kid (5/6 years old) living in the city, on very hot summer days all of us would take off our shirts to try and get cool and would declare we were "tummymen"...so I became a 'tummyman here !

Our 1976 Slickcraft SS 235 was the family boat for 38 years. When we bought the Eastern, Dave Ewing sold the old boat for us and it then changed hands 2 0r 3 times. It now has a new owner who named it "The Spirit of 76" and it lives in Smith Cove.

This is a photo from when we owned the SS 235.

Nick name I got while Working at Jackson Star, one of my co-workers could never remember my real name so he came up with Chachee and it stuck, and 52 is my favorite number, 10 more than the "ultimate answer to the ultimate question of the universe". Don't know why ten more was an important part, but that stuck too.

Default Coming up since 1946.

I was born in 1946, and that summer, my folks and I spent our vacation at Lake Shore Park at mom's uncle's place, the Wee Hoose. As I got old enough to talk, I had trouble saying Winnipesaukee, so I would ask if we were going 'Upthesaukee. Through the years, it became synonymous with coming up to the lake.

When we moved to NH in 1996 and moved in with Mom, within a day or two, she said "you don't have to go 'Upthesaukee, you live here now. "

Mom passed away in 2000 and when I joined the Forum a few years later, I could think of no better username than Upthesaukee.

It's now been 76 years and two boats later, and I'm still Upthesaukee!

Dave

I've am on a few other forums and a bunch of car forums and it made it easy to figure out I was the same guy posting on multiple places and I have an 06 GTO that was on nitrous that I used to drag race all over the east coast, so everyone knew I was the Juiced 06 GTO...

Monday, June 6, 6:28-am; so The Dive has been spuds down at this Camp Lawrence, south Bear Island, forested shoreline since mid-day Friday, about 3-pm on June 3.

How long will it be there/here? Has The Dive enrolled itself as a summer camper for summer-2022 at https://camp.mvymca.org/camp-lawrence/ .....

What a a wonderful and beautiful and fulfilling place to spend its' Dive summer on Lake Winnipesaukee.

Could The Dive become a long term Camp Lawrence camper, and return year after year, and always look forward to returning to this south Bear Island summer camp?

Hey there steve-on-mark ...... maybe you'll be wanting to change your name to steve-at-the-dive ..... ...... just looky here, what done did move on into this here neighborhood ovah the weekend?

You know I can see it very well from my little cottage on Meredith neck, and it really has some excellent visibility with that afternoon sun and setting sun shining down on that big white Dive box barge and the natural green forested shoreline, over there. Such an excellent location! Me-thinks it can be very comfy, there ...... a new home for The Dive?

My nickname growing up was Dippa which is a play off of my last name.

My Father In Law (RIP), nicknamed my son Danny, Danielsan from Karate Kid ("Danielsan...paint-a-fence") and at some point he started calling me Dippasan

Fun thread by the way

Thanks

Yup...same with Steve C. and steve-on-mark, yet even MORE plain...it's simply my name. No 'net anonymity required. (Although I coulda used some after making the outrageous and misinformed claim here back in 2002 or so that there were actually ROCK BASS in the Lake. People thought I was full of it...or something that rhymes with it.)

Many years ago I was running a summer program for disadvantaged kids and they liked to play Tetris in the computer room during break. They encouraged me to join them and I was hooked to the point that I won!!! .... and had to add my six letter name to the winner list. The kids encouraged me to put "mcdude" .... and there you have it. I've been known as mcdude where I worked but also as "Mickey Dee" .. (btw my name is Mike McDavitt)

Mine is a little convoluted as well. I own a 2000 Four Winns Horizon. It has the “Captains Call” exhaust which is a feature where I can turn my obnoxious loud exhaust on and off. (It wasn’t obnoxious 22 years ago…) The 1983 movie Blue Thunder starring Roy Scheider (Jaws) was about a fictitious Metropolitan Police Department that used a state of the art helicopter. It had a feature called “whisper mode” so it could fly in close undetected. I had a 33 year career in Law Enforcement and my boat is blue…..so…..Blue Thunder it is!

I guess I could’ve just said it’s the name of my boat but what fun would that be?

A friend of mine had the same boat...his wife told him he could buy a motorcycle or a boat, so he chose the boat and referred to it as " my Harley".

It's the abbreviated address of my favorite place on the big lake that our family had to sell in 2012. Brings back memories of nearly 45 summers in one spot.

Poor Richard comes from a couple things...

The short version is, it's a euphemism of sorts and it also happens to be the name of the font I use for my company.


The company font aside, the longer PG-13 version is:



On another forum, in the for sale section there were always a few members lowballing or, my favorite, "I'll have the cash in 2 weeks, can you hold it for me?" When in actuality these individuals never seemed to make a purchase on anything ever........ever.

From that, the term "brokedick" was eventually the label those select few had to live with and me being me, I found that to be exceptionally entertaining because of how it played out on that forum....that and it was simply the perfect description for these folks.

Anyway, as I was signing up to this forum, I wanted to use something different than the name I generally use and so I drew inspiration from the company font, had a chuckle and went with it.



NEXT!

Like many of you, who chose your nickname from your boat or a motorcycle etc., I also took my nickname from my car.
Back in May, 1969, for my birthday, before my junior year of college, (Belknap College ) my parents bought me a turquoise, Mercury Cougar convertible with a white top. What a beautiful car! When I showed up on campus, driving all around Center Harbor, everybody started calling me Susie Cougar.

(My first name is Susan)

Maybe an avatar with a photo of the Cougar with an inscription something like "My '69 Cougar".

I am old enough to remember when the Merc Cougar came out in '67 however many here likely never heard of the car.

I was afraid of that too.I’m glad you posed the question because
back in the 1960s, when I was given that nickname, the definition of cougar was only an animal, not how we think of the name now. I’m glad I had a chance to prove myself because I am anything but.😇
Steve, This is a fun post.

I am waiting for you to tell us where you got your nickname.

XINGU – are you a member of that tribe in Brazil, if you are, please post a picture.
Or did you take a vacation and paddle down the XINGU river?
Inquiring minds want to know.

LOL- I had to call up my son first and ask him what an avatar is! Being able to post on this forum is about my highest level of computer ability.

If someone would like to find a picture and surreptitiously put me in it with the Cougar, that would be fine with me.

Steve, This is a fun post.
I totally agree!

XINGU – are you a member of that tribe in Brazil, if you are, please post a picture.
Or did you take a vacation and paddle down the XINGU river?
Inquiring minds want to know.
His avatar is a clue I think

Indeed—a photo of Edith Wharton, writer of my favorite short story "Xingu."

For the literature lovers, give it a go—I think you'll find that it reads swimmingly yet is sometimes hard to fathom.

"Bear Islander" was already taken.
The avatar is a deep cut from the Dilbert nerdiverse, a nod to the webmaster's avatar.

This was a great idea for a thread! Fun to hear how everyone go their names. I hope to see all you guys out on the lake this summer, would be great to revive a forum meet up of some kind and share a few laughs and a few cold beverages!

When we moved to NH in 1996 and moved in with Mom, within a day or two, she said "you don't have to go 'Upthesaukee, you live here now. "

Mom passed away in 2000 and when I joined the Forum a few years later, I could think of no better username than Upthesaukee.

It's now been 76 years and two boats later, and I'm still Upthesaukee!

I grew up on the NH/ Maine border, and a lot of folks use Upta Camp..." Are you going Upta camp this weekend"? Back then, any structure on the lake, no matter the size, was called a camp

I spent 8 weeks every summer from 1961-1973 @Camp Bernadette on Lake Wentworth. 10 years as a camper, 3 on staff. It was the best 8 weeks of the year!

Default A name from the past

Speaking of names….does anyone know what happened to “ishoot”? He was a regular poster, and his comments were very interesting and helpful….and poof! He abandoned ship…..he is missed.

I do...I think he got fed up with the animosity and negativity and decided a breather was needed. See him every now and then at the Glendale docks...he left this on my boat when I came back in the spring!
