    Why did you choose your username?

    Do people have quirky stories behind why they gave themselves their MDA names?
    "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

    Also my favorite books! Especially the first one. It's one of the reasons I got into archaeology. Sorry about your pup

    My username is my Hungarian nickname, and also my grandmother's name. My Anglo name is so generic and ubiquitous, I use Kata as a way to keep in touch with my ancestry as well as differentiate myself from all the other white girls.

    My name is a word play on Yogi Bear, which my little bro has called me since we were kids. Then last year I did Yoga teacher training and the "Yogi" (a person who studies Yoga) suddenly became literal Being "bare" is a part of Yogic philosophy that refers to the essence of who we are, beyond the images we present. Which I felt was kind of like Primal.

    Plus I did most of my Yoga training in a bikini

    Jecka = a nickname I've had my whole life

    I had to add the "Miss" to the front of it because "Jecka" was already taken.

    Meow!! Because I'm grey (alternate spelling, lol) and furry.
    IDK , I totally suck at picking screen names and such. I have a grey cat, so it seemed kinda cool at the time.
