The Good, The Bad, and Random Nicknames.

Besides your username mind you.

What are some that you've been called, or do you have self-proclaimed ones?

And when I say the good, the bad, and the random nicknames, I mean just that. I'll go first.

The Good- The two I really like from my friends and co-workers are "Phones" and "Swiss Beats" simply because I wear headphones all of the time with any outfit whether it be casual or dress-up. what can I say? I like listening to music.


^ Mines! They're beyond sweetness.

The Bad- In middle school, I was short and to make matters worse, I had big glasses. X_X So I got the nicknames "Stumpy" and "Coke-Bottles." Oh...kids can be so cruel.

The Random- One of my bosses calls me "Cupcake" <--- What in tarnation? I couldn't tell ya, but I will say this much. It makes my eye twitch. Plus since my name is Johnte' I've been dubbed "Johntizzle?" <---Meh...I don't mind this one, but it's completely random.

--------------------------

Alright people, your turn! Your turn!

There's nothing worse than a self-appointed nickname.

The good: Tiina, Kiddo, Chibi, Kix, Kiku - no fun stories for these ones.
The bad: Okay, so it's not really "bad" but it's not exactly correct, either -- my friends and I have a running joke that I'm Jesus because my roommate is God. It's lead to a lot of shenanigans.
The ugly: TUUNA (in all caps) from a very bad mix up in a game of madlibs. @_@ Also S.S, for short stack, since in middle school I was the shortest one in the grade. That was from a teacher, ironically.

It is pretty epic.

Thank SV for that.

'Sunaku', 'Waffles', 'Donta' and the latest 'Butter'.


Butter was dubbed by a Friend's friend who I've never even met before. She heard waffles and said that name wasn't even good enough and gave me that one.

Well in real life I mostly just go by Kitty. Some people call me Kate too, which is alright I guess.
But I also have people call me Aki in real life, which is the short version of my screen name. I'm okay with this. XD

I don't really have any bad or random nicknames though.

Getting a nickname is a sign of being accepted into my college theatre department. XD It's a kind of unofficial initiation. Before they settled on 'Dorothy' for me (after one of the Golden Girls) I was called 'Trixie' a lot. :P (some others in the department: Gatorade, Maxwell House, Bottomless, Cotton... one person got called "Big G" for a few days, but then they decided it wouldn't stick. XD So he just goes by his real name even though he's integral to the program.) We have resolved to start calling our TD "Mama." <3



...Oh, and I'm also known around campus as "laserface."

The good: Taytay, Tay, Tails, Shinobu, Shi-chan.

The first three are from my name, and the last two were nicknames way back middle school.

I don't really have any bad or random ones...that I know of O.o.

Glory - From a few of my friends back in middle school. We all watched Buffy the Vampire Slayer. They called me Glory because my name was Gloria. It annoyed me.
ga-chan - My best friend said I needed a nickname, because I never really 'had' one. It was only really used during high school by her.
Munchkin - Because I'm short. One of my friends always called me this. She was the only one who was allowed to call me that because it had a pet name type of feel to it. An ex-boyfriend of mine tried calling me Munchkin, I was not happy.

The first was ugly. The second was not really good, more eh. And the third was good.
