Back in '06 when I joined another forum, I wanted to use the name cook, taken, changed it to cookie, taken, added another e, taken, added another e. Waalaaaa I became known as cookieee. Used it ever since.
When I signed up here last spring, I was pretty much decided on my developing farmstead name - this is its second year (still shaky as far as growing things go, despite the chickens). Turns out I still haven't decided -- it was going to be Mountain Cat Farm. Now I'm a lot less sure what to name this place. Anyhow, since I THOUGHT I was set on it... I chose the name Mountain Cat when I signed up here.
jojopops70 was the beginning of my very first email account, but the jojopops part came from when I was 6/7 years old. My name is always shortened to Jo or JoJo, I was spending time round my cousins when an advert for Cocopops cereal was on TV, the lyrics in the song were 'I'd rather have a bowl of cocopops'...… from there jojopops developed! To this day (I'm now 31) my cousin still calls me jojopops, or pops for short!
I've just been thinking, my older brother couldn't say Russell as a wee kid, he's 18 months older than me. He could only say muzzy. I still get called muzzy by old family members. And I mean old. My cousins in Australia still calls me muzzy.
You'll find me around the Internet on other forums as Artemis_MA. I wanted a change when I joined this one... see my post above. Artemis because that's the Greek form of my actual name, Diane. MA for Massachusetts. But as noted, I just wanted a change.
