No problem simstar, but still not quite sure what you mean.
Is it true that cannibals don't eat clowns because they taste funny?

Sorry! I meant to say "got" but the T key on this computer doesn't always work. I'll change it.

I see. So, where we got our avatar? Not really important where it came from — i.e. the avatar site/source, but like I said, if you just want to say what your avatar is, that's fine.

When we first got connected to the internet my twins were only about 18 months old and being a mother of twins pretty much defined who I was back then. So it seemed natural to use Twinmum. I can't always get just Twinmum, so I have used Oz_Twinmum, Twinmum_Too and a few variations. Of course now I am a bit more than just the mother of twins, I'm a mother of 4, a grand mother, a bit of a Stephen King expert, a miniaturist and other things, but the name Twinmum just sticks.

Ah, ok.  Gotcha then, I understand now. ;D

Mine's a golden eagle. It's my favorite bird.  :) I plan on changing it every month to a different animal for fun. I think, for September, I'd like to do a african elephant.

That in the guidelines for the thread?

No, ma'am. If there was a "Happytime" over there, it wasn't me.

Hey, HappyTime, is your icon from that series 'Gravitation'? It looks like the stuffed bunny they use in the anime.

Mine is pretty self-explanatory. I'm a girl and my favorite flower is the lily, I go for the yellow ones as that's my favorite colour.
On the official Sims 3 site I'm lilygirlmay05 which is the same except I added on my birthday - May 5th.

I'm also a mayflower! May 1st. I feel lucky to have gotten May Day as my birthday. Except that there is usually always a tornado on May 1st where I live...

My name: I remember the first time I ever tried sushi (steamed, not raw) and I loved it. When I told my best friend about it she was so shocked and "grossed out" by it that she started calling me sushi all the time. She thought I had gone off the deep end, and I thought it was funny so I kept the name.

TollingBells,

It looks like the stuffed bunny they use in the anime.

Yep, that's "Kumagoro!"  :)

I bought one along with the DVD set I got of Gravitation off Amazon a few years ago, but my 3-year old niece kept helping him escape my house, so I just let her keep him!

My username came out my fingers onto the keyboard without even passing through my brain first. It does roll trippingly off the tongue, I must say.

And here I've always thought you were making a reference to the use of llamas everywhere in the Sims series (I love it how they always turn up here and there! ;D) and still manages to pull off a rhyme. :)

Ah, I've always wondered about why the Sims is so obsessed with llamas and even has a completely useless cheat for llamas! I decided to Google it and spent the majority of my day searching for an answer. But all I got was that it was a simple Sims inside joke and had no meaning or purpose. I was so disappointed...

I personally think garden gnomes would make a better mascot. But GnomeMama would rhyme with YoMama, and no good could come from that.

Well, I put this in the introduce yourself thread but since this one is all about names...I'll put it again :)

My maiden name is Jack and one day, I believe it was my birthday, a lot of my friends were over and my mom said "I should have named you apple." All my friends got a kick out of this so my new nick-name became Apple Jack. I made Applejackkxo my screenname then (because I had to be cool and catchy *rolls eyes*) and it has just stuck ever since. Even though I'm married now....I still think it's cute so I use it :)

For my avatar...nothing special....just a peace sign :) lol
