    Re: Where did you get that handle?

    I'm mom to three girls, run at 0430 before work, and am always tired.  I'm also an anesthesiologist, so "SleeperGal" seemed to fit my work and home lives.

    I'd like to say I hit NH's lottery, but it's just a first name and where I'm from... 





    Enjoy life, this ain't a rehearsal...

    OK, I will join in.  I was coming home from a run one day when I saw my husband working in the yard.  I ran up behind him and scared the -


    out of him.  He asked me if I was running in stealth mode.  Hence the name.-Cathy

    Re: Where did you get that handle?

    Winthrop is the name of the lake across from my house; being also a fine old yankee name it was also adopted as the name of my erstwhile consulting company. 98 was the year I started using it.

    Cheers,

    Re: Where did you get that handle?

    I used to have FE2MAN ( FE2 is the chemical symbol for
    iron) for my handle; but, but I switched over to earthrunner
    ( because I don't run paved roads any more - EVER ! ) . I feel like 'Captain America' in the movie 'EasyRider' - when he took off his watch near the beginning of the movie and THREW IT
    AWAY ! - only I DISCONTINUED my PAVED ROAD
    running experience ( after 20 years & multiple injuries -
    I LEARNED MY LESSON !!!!!!!!!!!!!!). And now, with two feet
    of snow on the ground, I use my Precor StairMachine,
    my Tubbs aluminum snowshoes and my X-Country skis to help me work out while I wait for the snow to melt a little bit !!!!!!

    Re: Where did you get that handle?

    i'm a solar astronomer and i like good rap music.
    mc solaar is an incredible artist from senegal who raps in
    french, english and other languages. a friend
    of mine introduced me to his music and gave me
    the mc solar name which gradually became my
    online identity. you should really check his music at:

    astrosweet: i'm normally in tucson, but just spent
    three (unproductive) days in hilo. we'll have to get a run
    in together at a meeting or travel sometime. astronomy
    is a small world.

    Just kidding - probably the millionth time somebody gave you this grief but I couldn't resist. A lot of us at work today are in a slap happy mood. We are becoming a little stir crazy with all the winter weather I think.

    Actually I have never heard that one.  I guess I have never watched that movie.

    Kevin,  It's not a bad movie for 10 year olds so if you have no pre-teen boys around I'm not surprised that you've missed it. 

    The lead actors are Rick Moranis (Ghost Busters, Honey I Shrunk the Kids, etc.) and Ed O'Neill (Married with Children).
    Ed plays the part of Kevin O'Shea. Not actually your last name but close.
