    My name is the same as my website name. When I was coming up with a name for my website all the obvious ones were taken chefjennifer, pamperedjenn, pcjenn, jennskitchen.... and every single variation thereof.

    So I decided I wanted something snappy, not too long, and easy for my clients to remember. So -- yummybytes was born...

    yeah.. i know i'm a sad little geeky girl :p

    I know - it's not amazingly creative but it's ALL I'VE GOT!! :)

    It's not many people that have their name in the theme song to Zorro. (The old Disney Zorro.)

    I didn't know that Disney had a Zorro movie, and here I thought that I had seen all the "boy" Disney movies. I guess I will be looking for that at the library tomorrow.

    Mine is also the same as my PWS and the email I use for PC. It makes it easier for me to remember all of my user names if they're all the same. ;-)

    It was a television series that ran from 1957 to 1959, starring Guy Williams in the lead role. (I seem to remember a Zorro movie, too, that appeared to be several 22 minute episodes strung together.)

    [​IMG]

    The show was incredibly popular and was my favorite. For my birthday (I was probably 6) I received a Zorro kit - a cape, a mask and a plastic sword that held a piece of chalk in the end so I could make the "Sign on the Z" without damaging anything. My dad got plenty tired of washing chalk Z's off the garage wall, the basement door and several other places it appeared. I'd wear the cape and mask while watching the show!

    We couldn't understand all the words to the theme song, but sang along as best we could:

    Out of the night, when the full moon is bright,
    comes the horseman known as Zorro.
    This bold renegade carves a "Z" with his blade.
    A "Z" that stands for Zorro.
    Zorro, the fox so cunning and free.
    Zorro, who makes the sign of the "Z."
    Zorro...Zorro...Zorro...

    Annette Funicello made several guest appearances on the show.

    For some time, Zorro used to run late at night on The Disney Channel in the Vault Disney segment, along with a select number of The Mickey Mouse Club episodes. They don't seem to do Vault Disney anymore.

    Thanks for the info, maybe I won't be looking for Zorro. I already have Superman, Batman, Darth Vader, Bob the Builder, and several others that I can't think of right now. I also don't need the boys marking up the walls anymore than they already have.:rolleyes:

    It really was a phenomenon in it's day - Disney, in his characteristic way, was spending over 80 grand per episode where the average television series was costing about 15 grand per episode - and if you're watched any of the '50s reruns, you can see it - walls that wobble when a door slams or when snow "blows" on Sgt. Preston you can see the hand throwing it. Guy Williams was an unknown when Disney signed him, and he became an immediate heart throb - even Annette had a crush on him, so Disney cast her in a couple of episodes as her sixteenth birthday present.

    There were some legal wranglings over the rights to the character, and rather than put on a show that was under legal scrutiny, Disney just pulled it after two very succesful seasons. (It killed every show that went up against it.) When Disney prevailed in court, the momentum was broken so it never came back as a new show. Disney eventually gave up the rights to the Zorro stories in 1967.

    Guy Williams never really caught on anywhere else. He had some bit parts in a couple of Disney movies and some series work but never landed a plum roll again. He moved to Argentina, when he was very popular as Zorro and took up ranching. He died of cancer in 1989.

    Well, some information about Disney I didn't know. DH GGM dated Disney when he was in KC before he made it big.

    Unoriginal name, but not without a story.

    My first name is Kimberly, and my middle name is Darling (along with all of the girls/women on my maternal side of the family, going back a few generations). I was Kim growing up.

    But, in college, one of my sorority sisters started calling me Kimmy sophomore year. I didn't think it suited me (I'm not really a girly-girl), and figured it wouldn't stick, but others heard and started using, to the point that everybody there called me by that name. When I graduated and moved back to Atlanta, I was a stock trader on a desk with 11 other traders. Well, one day, Michelle (the friend that first started calling me Kimmy) called the desk and asked for Kimmy. Mindy knew me well, especially since she sat two chairs from me, so near that we could reach over/in front of the guy next to us to high-five whenever necessary, without standing up.[​IMG]

    she said, "I'm sorry, there's nobody here by that name."
    Michelle said something like, "are you sure? This is the number on her card."
    Mindy said, "yeah, I'm sure. Sorry. There's no Kimmy here."
    Me ears perked up and I said, "wait-- did you say Kimmy?" She nodded.
    I said, "Uh, helloooooo! that's ME!"
    She put Michelle on hold & said, "no way. You're not a "Kimmy." But pickup line two. KIM!"

    Anyway, Mindy repeated this story so much that afternoon that it started to stick, and other people started calling me that. Eventually, everybody in the company knew me as Kimmy.

    So fast forward to 2001. I fell in love with Jill Conner Browne's "Sweet Potato Queens" books, and visited her website. There was a messageboard there, very similar to this one, and I had to pick a screen name (or a Queen Name, as it was called there). I didn't really try to think of something imaginative-- I just wanted to register quickly, so I could start talking to these other Queens all over the country ASAP! So I just squashed my nickname & middle name together, and it's been my name ever since. I considered making it something cuter, but since Jill has written about me as KimmyDarling in two of her books, I decided not to. [​IMG]

    In my Cluster there are 2 Shari's and so we were going to use our first name and initial of last name but those were the same too so they just started calling me by my last name, The Bowman.

    I always loved the idea of having a named house. When I bought my first house it was COMPLETLEY covered in ivy. I got rid of most of it, but kept a little. I named the house Ivy Keep as a play on words since keep is another name for a castle and I *love* castles. My current house is now The Ivy Keep at Windy Knoll. My original online screen name was Lady of the Ivy Keep but that's been shortened just to IvyKeep. I use it everywhere... I used to own the website ivykeep.com, but let it lapse (oops!) and someone else bought it and now uses it to sell wiccan items.

    hmmmm..... how to describe mine:confused: When I first was getting my email account my hubby helped me come up with it because it's been a nickname for me! MissChef is also so close to mischief, that my hubby liked it and it stuck! When I signed up here, it was only natural to go with it, because that is what I'm known as amongst my business aquaintances. Now all my friends call me MissChef too cause I'm always cooking for eveyone!

    My other email address that is not business related is catchef! And that came about because my nickname is Cat (Cathy) and has been since I was a kid! And I have been cooking since I was about 5-6 years old. I became the main cook in my house when I was young when my Mom broke her leg when I was 10 1/2. I would just do as she would tell me to do and I started making roasts with all the trimmings and all kinds of other main meals and it just became my job because I loved it! I would have dinner on the table when my parents came home from work! My Mom misses having me at home!!! But I've been a little chef from the time I was physically able! I also use to cook for my friends and have them over for dinner from the time I was a teenager! And so my friends know of me as a chef too! In fact my best friend wants me to come give her cooking classes!!! So catchef was another option that I considered when I was creating my screen name but I went with MissChef because it's what's connected to my business and this is a Pampered Chef inspired site!;) :)

    Cool idea for a thread!:D

    I heard about this thread at the MNG and just remembered it. Fun reading through it!

    Mine is very obvious. My yahoo email is a different version of this (bethscooking4u) because this one was taken. I also found out that someone else has bethcooks4u as their pws. Popular name I guess.

    Thanks for starting this.
