What's the story behind your screen name?

  1. Greetings y'all,

    For those of you Allnurses willing to share, what is the story behind your screen name? I see quite a few interesting names and I often wonder what is behind them.

    Mine is not one of the interesting ones, but... spine CNOR - I am an OR nurse, who works mostly in othopedic spines, and I am CNOR (OR nursing) certified.

    Thanks in advance!

    My name is Russell and when I was a child my Mom used to watch the Danny Thomas show. The kid in that show was named Rusty Hammer and occasionally my Mom would call me Rusty Hammer in a joking manner.

    My name is Adrienne and I am a nurse. Not very creative or mysterious, but the handle has kind of grown on me.

    Mine is very boring also. Not being a creative person in the least and since I work labor and delivery, it just sort of came to me. Labornurse.

    Research is what I do...and not just at work (I am very good at finding out whatever).

    As for Rabbit...

    My all-time favorite book is Alice in Wonderland. I have read it numerous times (more than 50 would be my guess). Life, to me, is like Wonderland -- intriguing, mysterious, and unpredictable (not a bad thing, you understand...just the way it is).

    My children look at a crescent moon and say "There's the Cheshire Cat's smile!"

    I feel a connection to many of the characters, and one is the White Rabbit who just can't get anywhere on time and is always late. (hey, at least it's not the Red Queen who is constantly shouting "Off with his head!").

    I also use this name on ebay and often have people ask if I do research with rabbits...which is NOT the case!
