There are many interesting names on this forum and I'd be curious what they mean and why you chose them. I think we should be able to do this while still remaining anonymous. Some are much more obvious than others.

I'll go first:

WantsToLiveInTheBush

Mine is fairly obvious. I want to leave this area and live somewhere remote. I have dreams about buying land in Alaska and living there, but it is a long shot due to family obligations. I love the outdoors and hate sitting in traffic. I want to live somewhere without so many people. I just want to be surrounded my trees and animals. I want a simpler life without tv, computers, cell phones and anything besides a light that has a plug.

Anyone else want to take a stab?

I want to be a cicada and live in a bush. btw, the "bush" is in Australia, not Alaska. Close in the alphabet. Not so much geographically.

Pretty straight forward, born and raised in Nassau County, saw the light and moved to Suffolk.

Buck is my dog, who retired when my father did, and now lives the good life in Pennsylvania.

See, and I wouldve thought that it based off the dog on Married With Children

Contrary to popular belief, I am not a bitter person....actually I am pretty happy go lucky most of the time.

One of my favorite bands is a now defunct band called Soul Coughing who were based out of NYC. One of my favorite songs by them is a song called Mister Bitterness....hence my name.

When I was in film school, I thought it would be the name of my production company one day. I don't know why I choose to use a different spelling of my first name. I think it had better symmetry the way its spelled. So its pronounced oh-kellies.

Lubby is nickname given to me by my husband about 8 years ago. It's started out as lovey and turned into lubby. In fact my in-laws call me lubby too!
