my :'( username came from *sobs*
my previous experiences with love and life

frozenbeat ->> short for a frozen heart beat,
in a literary point of view, it's like saying I've been hurt a lot and sad with love and life
but this doesn't mean I have to stop living my life.
It just means I'm stopping my heart from falling in love again, soon. *fingers crossed*
All the pains and heartaches, I've frozen them. So you can not hear a beat of my heart.

I'll be waiting for that someone that will melt the frozen beat of my heart,
but for now, I'm just enjoying the moment. Live. Laugh. Life.
There are still good things that in life!
One of which is playing Sims 3. Oh yeah! ;D

World Peace.

My name is from an evil Sim I like to play. I specifically designed him and his name to be the most evil I could think of, hence "Evulz". He's also a genius, hence "Doctor". It's really subtle, right?

The name DarthCookie comes from my old username that I was using prevalently in 2009.  DarthCookie is also my username on The Sims Wiki where I used to be an Administrator.

Littlemommy is my go-to internet name...I'm a mommy and I'm only 5 feet tall, hence the 'little' part. ;)

Mine came from Great Expectations…

Estella was the beautiful girl that broke and ripped Pip's heart to shreds. Estella also means 'star' and to me it just sounded sophisticated and elegant.

So therefore, "Miss Estella".

LOL! *High Five!* Add me to the little mommy club (well, sort of), I'm the same height as you, and a Mommy to a spoiled Persian! (That counts for something right? ;D)

Because it's the only thing I could think of at the moment and I think I might be a little coocoo about sims, like when it comes to the release of a new expansion pack! Hehehehehe

I guess an absurdly long name like mine deserves an explanation. It's actually rather simple.

I got my username when I was 12 and my pony at the time was called My Triumph which we dubbed Nic's Triumph (my parents call my Nix) which just always stuck because it's unusual and no one ever has it.


Love. Life. Beautifully.

My username came from when I was first learning to talk, and I couldn't say my full name, "Alexandria." It kept coming out as Alexrandia. My dad still calls me this sometimes, over two decades later. :) Another great thing about it is that's it's never taken.

Lysita was the username I came up with when I did my first Pern site, and also the first character I made on it. The site didn't last long, but the name stayed in my head, and I remade the character on other Pern sites.  It's not the only username I've used, and I do think it sounds nice. Plus, it has a couple of letters from my name, although that was purely coincidence.

I think I already posted this ages and ages ago about two years ago.

When my neices were younger they would call me Aunty Rach and then that got changed to Auntie Rachy. My neice told me,when she was six(she is twenty four now)that my name was spelled wrong and it should be ratchie and started sending me birthday cards with that name on.
So when I started using the internet and going on forums I would use that name.

Well, I was around and on computers before the Internet and before The Sims (yes, children, there was still life before these things) and my username used to always be Bluejeans.  As more and more people joined the online community, my name was harder and harder to secure. 

Then, about 6 months after The Sims came out, I was invited to moderate one of the few fansite forums.  I started writing tip columns, creating downloadable objects for the game, and moderating group discussions on the forums.  In order to identify moderators on the board, we all changed our usernames to start with the letters LIU for Livin' It Up (the UK name for the first expansion pack of the first game)... hence, I became LIUBluejeans.  And THAT username is never taken so I use it everywhere now.

Back when my son was around 5 years old (so approximately 1998-99) I had my first internet set-up at home.  My son, whom I allowed one 30-minute television show per day (and who usually didn't take me up on the offer unless he was sick or it was pouring rain out, thank goodness...We are not a TV household even now.) was having his Blue's Clues time, and I was sitting a few feet away setting up my profiles and such.  If anyone remembers back to the mid-90s, Nick Jr. had this mascot during its toddler programming block who was named Face.  He was literally just a bold smiling face "drawn" on a color-changing screen, and he announced the shows.  Part of his schtick was to pretend to blow a trumpet fanfare.  I was wracking my brain to come up with a username that I could stand that wasn't already taken or too silly, when I heard that trumpet sound.  My brain reminded me that a brief, announcing horn fanfare of that sort  is called a "tantara."  I liked that, and I've used it ever since.  :)

Tantara, I grew up in the 90's so I know exactly what you're talking about! I certainly remember Face! ;D

My user name for this forum is: ILoveDolls. That's because I, well, I like dolls. I played Sims 1 very briefly and Sims 2 like a maniac and then my interest in it sort of waned and I started designing outfits for this site called StarDolls. Well, after Sims 3 came out, I abandoned that, but I still love dolls :)

My Sims 3 forum name/as well as my XBOX360 profile(not my gamertag) is all under Dash3001. Why that? When my son was in kindergarten, I had a parent conference. Nothing bad. It's just that my son had stopped signing his papers with his name and instead would sign them: Dash. Lol. By process of elimination, the teacher was able to figure out who 'Dash' was. His earlier Club Penguin/Wizard 101accts became Dash2001 so I became 3001.

You probably shouldn't give out his usernames for those sites as your username isn't your display name (or at least for Wizard101). It's the same as giving out a password without a username.
