    Tinkerbell

    I have a strange last name which people often misprenounce.  I don't really mind as long as I know they are talking to me. When I was younger, I answered a call from a telemarketer who asked, "Is Mr. or Mrs. Tinkerbell there." I said "no" and hung up the...

    I Actually Have Three Different Ones

    I have been called any of these three nicknames at various times. Nickname #1: The Sissy In Stockings. Nickname #2: Naughty In Nylons. Nickname #3: Manhungry In A Miniskirt. Most seem to prefer nickname #3.

    I Have My Suspicions

    Sparky is what I'm always called. Or Sparks. No idea why, my parents seem to find it amausing though. This leads me to have thoughts that something must have happened when I was little that I can't remember. Possibly involving electricity. I really should just ask.
