What Does You Username Mean?

Tue May 03, 2005 2:26 pm

AirWillie is one of the nicknames of Air Wisconsin, or so I was told. My name is not Willie. 6475 was a flight number that is special to me.

Mine's a boring, long story: I went to a soccer game in Dallas, where there is/was a grocery store chain called Carnival Food Stores, and they were having one of those silly contests where people dressed in oversized, round suits race each other around the field.
One of their contestants was this person in a lime green suit and a huge cowboy hat that the announcer said was "Senor Carnival." Seeing he had the tackiest costume, I naturally had no choice but to root for the poor guy, and he won, so my friend who was there with me automatically started calling me that and we concurred it would make an interesting user name online...
Oh no, she's getting impatient! Take a stab at it!

Maybe/Maybe not. But it's a start... that's something in itself, isin't it?

Greyhound comes from taking cross country bus trips all the time, especially when I was younger. My mom is afraid of flying to some degree, so we took Greyhound everywhere. Phoenix to Baltimore and back, Boston-Seattle, Phoenix-Milwaukee, Charleston-Tampa.
