Why ‘glitterbubbles’?

It’s not a very long or complicated story.

Almost 8 years ago, now, I got an invite to join livejournal.com… this was back in the days when you needed an invite to join. My son was about 6 months old, and I had very little contact with the outside world, being a 19 year old single mom.  This friend of mine from high school thought I’d have fun with livejournal, so she invited me, and I spent days trying to come up with a decent username, with very little success.

Then one day, those email surveys were going around, the ones that you send to your friends that ask them how well they know you and they try to remember your middle name and things like that. Well, one of the questions asked for two words that you think of when you think of me (only probably in a more eloquent manner, I just can’t remember), and the same friend who had sent me the invite to LJ answered “glitter” and “bubbles”. And, since those are two of my favorite words, a username was born. Thanks, Treva! I have used it on nearly everything since, when it was available.

And now you know. 🙂
