Share your Avatar backstory? Here is mine...

Yeah, I know, you think my on-line name is a bit infantile, has not much to do with Prince, etc., etc. Well, here is a small story on it. As a biologist having worked in a lab & drawing blood on people with Hepatitis, I am probably not going to get a tat anytime soon. Besides, the tatting thing is your generation, not mine. (or P's either for that matter) Also, I will share something that sometimes I am proud of, and sometimes a little ashamed of at times- I am tight with $.

My dad has been deceased since 1989, and I was a daddy's girl. I thought that if I ever got a tat, it would say "Seahorsie". Why? Because when little, I was really crazy about horses, and according to my father, when we would pass one in the truck anywhere, I would snuggle up to him and say "see horsie"? I wanted one soooo bad. It later became a running joke between us, and yes Karen, he bought me the sweetest palamino mare once I got old enough to handle one.

So, that's my Avatar name. And the drawing? I stole the idea for the seahorse on-line, and redrew it to the paisley one you see here to honor Prince. A personal tribute to a couple of my lifetime favorites.. So, there it is.

Anyone want to share what yours means to you?

My Avatar name is a cross between my own name (Emma) and my mother's surname (McGrane). Hence, EmmaMcG.

The reason I chose my mother's surname and not my own is because before I was married, my surname was Cunningham. So it would have been EmmaCun which is just a "T" away from being a disaster 😂.

Since getting married, my surname is now Doyle so I suppose I could change my name to EmmaDoy but that sounds too much like "Emma Die". Which wouldn't be very good either.

My avatar picture doesn't really have an interesting story behind it. My daughter told me I remind her of Isabelle from Animal Crossing. It was a bit of a gut punch to my ego to be told I reminded her of a dog but nevertheless, I figured she wasn't far wrong. There are some similarities, I suppose.

"benni" - My real name is Brenda, but when my younger sister (7 years younger than me) was little she couldn't say my name, so she always called me benni (still does). When I saw my first Prince concert in 1998 and decided I needed to find out more about him, an ex-boyfriend told me Prince was really into the internet. I found the org first and eventually found L4OA website and The Holy River chatroom. It kept telling me to enter a name, and I tried to think of something witty, something cute, something..I don't know Princely, but then I realized, I've always been just "benni". For awhile in The River, everyone would greet me with "b...b...b...benni and the jetts", but my name never had anything to do with that song.

The avatar, I was the last person Prince retweeted and someone online decided she wanted to do something for me, so she edited a picture of Prince and I together. She did two of them, one with a copy of the tweet at the bottom, and one without the tweet. I thought it was really sweet of her and decided to use it as my avatar here.

thumbs up! Cool story all around.


My Avatar is some photo i took off of some pagan website(I'm not a pagan though). It looked cool, was of someone black, and i think it kind of looks like me, so i claimed it. I've been planning on changing it(i used to change them around every 6 months or so), but have been lazy about it. My next one will probably be of Ultraman. I love that character.


As far as my name, my real name is Joey. My last name is so damn common, that i decided to go with Joeyc. The c stands for a few things. Joeycool(because i pretty much got(get) along with everybody), Joeycrazy(i was somewhat wild in my youth-not a "thug" though... but maybe a little Gangster), because some of the fellas called me Crazy Joe. And lastly, C, as in coco...So, take your pick razz

Rest in Peace Bettie Boo. See u soon.

I am of Mexican descent so I found the most diminutive Mexican image I could and...

Well, I had a ____ of a time getting mine to finally load up. I will never remove it, 'cause I am pretty sure it would never come back. If it makes you feel better, I only got to post a picture one time, after going through many gyrations. What would be wrong with enabling it to do a simple copy and paste??
