I'm joining @Chelleo in a game of #litsyavatar (story/description of your profile pic) and #litsyhandle (Story/description of your Litsy name).

My Avatar: This is my beautiful sweet girl Zoe who passed away at 18 years of age last year. I was sick when I took this picture, and she stayed on the couch with me until I healed up. My little 5 1/2 lb nurse of cuteness.

My handle: That's Zoe and I'm her human (Zoe's human).

Share yours!

Leftcoastzen Awww,some kitties are very good nurses, my current two , not so much .😻I‘m glad you have happy memories. 3y
Chelleo What a sweet story and a gorgeous girl! 3y
Zoes_Human @ Leftcoastzen @Chelleo Thank y'all so much. We were very luck to have her. Our cat Ralphie is also sort of a good nurse. At least in that, he's very pleased when you are sick because it means you stay in one place and he can nap on you. :) 3y

Hi Littens...it‘s been awhile... anyone up for a game of #litsyavatar (story/description of your profile pic) and #litsyhandle (Story/description of your Litsy name)??

I just updated my avatar tonight. I visited and got an after hours tour of the Mercantile Library. It is a beautiful library!

My handle: A mashup of my first and last name:
Mi(Chel)le (Leo)nard. Pronounced Shelly-O even though I hate the nickname Shelly.

Share yours!

Eyelit Great photo! 3y

silentrequiem Welcome back! 3y
Butterfinger Beautiful 3y
Sleepswithbooks You look gorgeous ✨✨ 3y
Zoes_Human I'm a Michelle that ALSO hates the nickname Shelly! 3y
MicheleinPhilly @Zoes_Human SAME! I‘ve had people ask me if they can call me that and you would think they asked if they could rob my house. No, no, NO. 3y
Chelleo @Zoes_Human @MicheleinPhilly The only person who has a pass is my Brother-In-Law. I usually go by Chelle with family and friends but flinch when people see it in writing and pronounce it With the hard CH like cello. 3y
MissAimz_55 Hello! I had to go look st what my picture was. It‘s a picture of me with my niece on Christmas when she was only 2 weeks old. Now she is 2 years old! I should update it . My name is just aimee so my user name is MissAimz and then 55 is my favorite number. 💗 3y
Chelleo @MissAimz_55 Look at how little your niece was. So cute! I‘m one of those people that change avatars frequently but if your happy with yours, keep it! No judgment either. 3y
vivastory @MicheleinPhilly @Chelleo I was with my ex (a Michelle) for 10 years & not once was I tempted to call her Shelly. I just find it very strange. 3y
Chelleo @vivastory it is strange whenever people shorten someone‘s name without asking or being told. I also find that Michelle‘s who go by Shelly typically only go by Shelly and never use the formal version. But that‘s just my experience. 3y
Zoes_Human @MicheleinPhilly 😂 😂 😂

In my case, it's a matter of bad experiences. I've known only 2 people actually named Shelly and BOTH of them were awful humans. To the extent that if I meet another Shelly, I'm really going to have to work to give them a chance.

Saw this and thought it‘d be fun! I work as a mermaid 🧜‍♀️ and I‘ll do story times by the pool side. I also have a pool in my backyard and sometimes if the weather is nice I‘ll sit back there to read. Hence, Pages by the Water 🌊 📖
What‘s the story behind your handle?

Sharpeipup is a nickname that goes back decades now. I dressed up in a costume that I was too short for & it bunched up around my ankles like a sharpei puppy. #nowyouknow #litsyhandle

CouronneDhiver Awww! That‘s a fun story 😊 4y

My #LitsyHandle combines two of my favorite things—The Wizard of Oz and reading. 😊 #whatsyourhandle

My name comes from combining my first name, Sue, with a truncation of my middle name, Elizabeth: SueLizBeth. #LitsyHandle. The thing is, no one knows how to pronounce it, or whether they should even try. It makes me chuckle. @kaye

LauraBeth My middle name is Elizabeth and I don‘t think I ever heard my parents pronounce the first “E” or the “A” when they called me by my full name! I was always LauraLizbeth, which they eventually shortened to Laura Beth. So I‘ve always pronounced your handle correctly in my head 😂 4y
Suelizbeth @LauraBeth I love this 😆 4y

My #Litsyhandle is an adaptation of my favorite WWE wrestler‘s name. 😂 His name is Chris Jericho (tagged one of his books here), and my name is Kris, so I went with krisjericho. I‘ve been using it on various sites for years and years, since the interwebs were just a new-fangled thing. Pretty much no one guesses where it came from because as a 42-year old mom of five and librarian-to-be, I don‘t exactly fit the pro-wrestling fan profile. 😂 @kaye

CoffeeNBooks I wondered if that's where it came from- my husband and son watch wrestling, so I'm familiar with Chris Jerico from both wrestling and Fozzy. 🎶 4y
Krisjericho @CoffeeNBooks Fozzy‘s cover of ABBA‘s SOS gives me life. 😂 4y
Kaye Weren‘t you the one who said you liked the tv show Jericho ? I thought you might have gotten it from there. 4y
Krisjericho @kaye I did like Jericho, but it was just a bonus as far as the username was concerned. :) 4y

My Litsy handle story isn‘t all that exciting. I have two cats and I love to read, thus purrfectpages was born! #litsyhandle @kaye

As @Cinfhen mentioned yesterday, I wasn‘t always WanderingBookaneer. I think I was JaimitaPR before that. One day I was at the airport and saw tagged book. I loved the word Bookaneer and combined it with my love for exploring and thus my new handle was born. #LitsyHandle

Cinfhen Yes!!! That sounds right!!! It was also during #ReadingOlympics and you were busy aiming for gold 😘🥇#GoodOleDays when you could scroll through your entire feed in under 6 minutes 😂😂😂 4y
Kappadeemom Yes! I could scroll through one time at the end of the day and catch up with everyone! 4y
SleepyDragon All this time I thought it was a Sesame Street reference. (2007 episode titled "Elmo and the Bookeneers" with Tina Fey) 4y
