    When I first signed up on WDWMagic, I was MontyMon. Initially, the site wouldn't allow me to use Monty. After a while, Steve started allowing some of us who have been around awhile to change and I shortened it to just Monty.

    When I joined the military 40 years ago, I took on the nickname Monty to have something I could live with, people my size [6'3"] tended to get "Igor", "Gronk" or "Lurch". I figured I'd pre-position myself. Last name "Montgomery" remove the "Gomer" = "Monty". :cool:

    My original username on forums waaaay back in the day was The Deadman, but when I joined JTV/Twitch, I figured that really wasn't a good nickname so I chose Dead2009 and the name has stuck with me everywhere I go. I also chose the first name because I was a huge fan of the wrestler The Undertaker and his nickname was The Deadman.

    So did you change your name? Because this was your response on one of the other threads:

    "Mine is boringly just my middle name."

    It may be both. Parents gave me a unique middle name to reflect our familys deep history with this animal.

    I was just talking about that tiger today, and trying to remember which gas station it was! So weird that I just read this today. And now I know :)

    My name is a play on my last name. I am like @bee and didn't want to be google-able. It's for a different reason though. You guy's are going to think this is crazy... I work at a Baptist school, so I'm not supposed to drink alcohol. Well, I do on vacation, and I want to share about it on my trip reports! So I do.... but if it popped up when someone searched my name it could be bad news bears for me. It could still be bad if someone just so happened to run across my report and had something against me. Or I guess if someone ran across it and was one of the few people who thinks that rule makes any sense at all for GROWN *** ADULTS...they could turn me in. Crossing fingers it doesn't happen though. I like my job :joyfull:

    yep. Anytime I tell people about that policy they are just baffled. I mean I've read the whole Bible several times, and I don't believe a blanket "no alcohol" policy is biblical...but I'm a woman, so what do I know? :hilarious:

    Wine. Case closed.

    It's against drunkenness, not alcohol, which is just prudent (as I finish my third beer...)

    Mine is pretty basic. When I first "joined" the internet back in 1999, we had a little kitten named Simba, so I became Simba's Mom on whatever Disney site I joined. A few years ago, Simba crossed the rainbow bridge at age 16, so now it's a tribute to him.

    Oh man...I grew up Baptist (my dad is a Baptist pastor in Texas. And I'm a lesbian...) and was TERRIFIED of alcohol growing up. My parents NEVER drank and they were even against using wine for cooking, or drinking sparkling cider because I Thessalonians 5:22 says "Abstain from all appearance of evil" (from the KJV, the only REAL version of the Bible btw [and yes I still remember that verse; I won lots of Scripture memory awards from church and church camp as a kid]) and alcohol is evil and therefore drinking something that vaguely looks like alcohol is also evil.

    My parents and their cult literally believe that Jesus didn't actually give the disciples wine at the Last Supper, but grape juice, because the KJV says "fruit of the vine" and that TOTALLY meant juice in Jesus' time. When we took communion we drank Welch's grape juice.
