My Sister-in-law is also called Joy, though in her case it couldn't be less appropriate... hmm

Re: Your User Name....

Ermm!  This info is kind of classified but I don't mind sharing it with you lot  wink .  Promise me you won't tell a soul?
I stole my name from Scotland!  We had a holiday home in the West Highlands (my paradise).  Driving along en route to 'our place' and I saw this property with the house name of Thistledo.  Soooooo clever and appealed to our sense of humour.  It's mine now - forever.
Won't be answering the door to anyone today, in case it's the police  big_smile

Now I get it (duh). "This'll do". For some weird reason (not even understood by me), was "calling you" Thistle-doe. Scotland and deer. Guessed you were female, at least.  Think I need a lie down hmm wink smile

why the exemption pass??   hmm


I have been using online forums/chats for about 20 yrs now. Most  of the nicknames I have used in that time  come from fantasy books by Raymond E Feist with a sprinkling of norse mythology.  milamber(ticketmaster when it had a bulletinboard chat  18 or 19 yrs ago) ,Pug, Nakor,Ashen`Shugar(I used these three on Dalnet IRC  for many years .)  I have also used Loki, Ratatosk, Fenris . I still use Nakor for most things ( I most identify with this character)  but I think Nakor was taken and I wanted something shorter than Ashen`Shugar for this forum so I cut it  down to Ashen.


And there you go, more than you ever wanted to know about my online pseudonyms .  tongue  tongue

Re: Your User Name....

Apologies everyone.  My last 2 posts have duplicated themselves.  Can't possibly be anything I've done, can it?
