How did you come up with your forum name?

For me, it was easy. The "ffemt" part is obvious, I'm a FF/EMT. The 8978 is my department employee number.

Well, I was a tall, skinny kid...okay, still am. LOL There is a very embarassing picture taken of me when I was about 12 years old and it looks like I have really really long, skinny arms, like a chimp. My brother started calling me Chimp and as I got older other versions came about. Now his wife and their two kids call me Uncle Chimpie. Can't get away from it now. :)

This is the name I use on all the forums I'm involved with and comes from my paying job as a safety professional. If you want the $1.50 definition of that, the Board of Certified Safety Professionals has a great definition here).

The sunshine part comes from high school, when I got sunburned and everyone said I was glowing "as bright as sunshine." The 1026 is my station number.

LOL...every person I talk to online has to make some comment about MY name,lol. The Gizmo part is a nickname my boyfriend gave me when I was a junior in high school cause he said I was little and cute like Gizmo from Gremlins, and the Spunky part is just something I came up with eons ago, cause it sounded cool,lol. I use spunkygizmo for everything now,lol. :D

This is easy - Citizen Kane is held in very high regard on my movie favorite list... I just modified 'Kane' to better reflect my families last name. :)
