It's Meme Berry Christmas - My Name

Berry's done another Meme and I'm in.

I had a sly ciggie while I was thinking of my answers.  A terrible habit I know but it's my second last vice other than enjoying a fine glass of  red.

  1. What’s your SL name? Chalice Carling
  2. What made you choose this name? God it's so far back for the old memory bank but I think I chose the sir name Carling first and then tried to think of another name starting with C.  I thought Chalice sounded nice plus I was probably drinking a glass of wine at the time which reminded me that wine was traditionally drunk from a chalice in the Biblical sense.  Chalice is also the name Jamaicans use for a bong, and is also an ancient symbol for a woman.  It is also the antiquated metaphor for the female urino-genital tract but please don't hold that against me.
  3. What’s your SL nickname, or what do most people call you? (if applicable) Either Cha or Cha Cha.  I always love the way Frolic Mills pronounces my name...like Chal-eee-ce.  Very cute.
  4. What’s your SL display name? Why do you choose to have one? (if applicable) I did just put Cha Cha as my display name.  Not sure why though.
  5. Do you like your SL name? Yes I do actually.  I really wouldn't mind if Chalice was my RL name.  My RL first name is very, very unusual and I've spent a life time correcting people with the pronunciation and spelling it, sometimes two or three times because people get lost half way through.  Turns out my name is a common name for a male in Jamaica.
  6. If you could change your SL name, what would it be? Blooming Wonderful.
  7. What’s the craziest/funniest SL name you’ve ever seen? Ayefarted On Yeu.  Eww I'd have to fart back.
  8. What’s the coolest (your favorite) SL name you’ve ever seen? I think it would have to be Crap Mariner.  I remember when I first knew of him and I just loved that name.  Actually now I wish I could be Crap Carling.
Now I better credit my stuff:

Hair: Sweet Iris by Boudoir
Skin: Zoe in Pearl tone by Tuli
Lips: Deviant Vamp by Tuli
Eyes: IKON
Hands and Feet: By SLINK
Dress: Drape Dress in White by Tram
Earrings, bangles and necklace: By Mandala
Flowers: By Lapointe & BastChild
Smoke: By NikotiN

Sorry I cannot give you SLURLS today but SL is broken and wouldn't bring up profiles at the time of publishing this post.  Bad SL.


  1. So many comments!

    I have the same issue with my RL name. Peep is just easier!

    Oh, I want Blooming Wonderful, too, now. Maybe I could be Friggin' Wonderful, instead? :D

    You look like Cher in the second pic...gorgeous!

    All done now :) Great post!

  2. YAY a comment :-) I love comments.

    I love your name by the way. PEEP is so short, sharp and to the point and adding Sideshow, well that's a given :-)

    Thanks for your lovely comments. I really do appreciate when someone stops by to say hi and maybe, they just liked something on here. Take care and happy days.

  3. I've always actually thought that your name and how you named your blog was so bloody brilliant! I like your explanation of how you came up with the name, very interesting for sure.

    I can't even stop laughing at Ayefarted On Yeu, that is probably the most hilarious I've ever heard of! And yes, Mr. Crap's name is awesome and I love how he uses "isfullofcrap" as his name everywhere.

    Thanks for participating again! <3

  4. Aww thank you Berry. I just love your enthusiasm in SL as do so many other people. You help keep it fresh and interesting. Sending you big hugs.
