I've never really had any nicknames that stuck...

When I was younger (elementary school) my best friend April and I would go down to a little deli in our neighborhood when we had saved up enough change to buy something to eat there. One day the owner asked if she was born in April, but her birthday was in September. So they called us July and September.

For a while at the Nationals, when I was much younger, there were always big "fights" for collecting the brass on one team match day. (Too long and involved to explain, let's just say that the brass (spend cases from shooting) was like gold to shooters.) Well, I was a bit, erm, aggressive in making sure that my team got all of our brass, and kinda earned the nickname "The Brass Dragon". There's only a couple people who still remember those days!

I am 6 feet tall, always have been it seems. My last name is Neuberger.

I was called, Jolly (for jolly green giant) By my middle school Basketball coach
Also Stretch, by the same coach.

Cheese or Cheeseburger by my best friend in HS. We played sports together so on the court/field it was Cheese. All our teamates took to the nickname as well

My best guy friend used to call me sasquatch when we weren't friends. Then shortened it to Squatch when we became friendly. Then changed it to Squeech when we became, ah-hem...very friendly. He still calls me Squeech to this day.

Dad called me Peanut or shug. Still does, unless he calls me Dear on accident (which he calls me mom) then quickly changes it to Shug. "I don't know Dear! I mean Shug..." lol

I call Jordan honey all the time. He calls me Kristin. lol

I had "wewah" for the longest time.
In high school it was "hollywood"
Because I always wore hollywood type things, and my dream was to go to hollywood and make it big in the acting.
Now it's "mommy"

When I was a few years old, my parents started calling me Chuck after Chuck Norris from Walker, Texas Ranger (my Mom was a fan). That got passed on to all of my relatives and they still all call me Chuck to this day.

Since grade 3, all my friends have called me J.R. (my initials). That started because both me and a friend of mine are named Justin. My 3rd grade teacher would always get us confused and so she called me J.R. for my initials and him J.G. for his. In high school, my weight lifting buddy started calling my Junior for 2 reasons: 1. He couldn't believe how strong I was for my size, and 2. JR is the abreviation for Junior.

Today, I go by all 4 names: Justin, J.R., Junior and Chuck.

Cherokee Princess (there is supposed to be Cherokee in my ancestry) and Scumpus are from my parents. "Scumpus"? That came from my attempt to say the word "scrumptious".

Arlyn? My niece is known as "Aunt Red" for probably the same reason!

My hair is actually auburn, but it gets to be an awful orange in the summer (as you can see by the ends of my hair).
In the sun though it shines red, gold, brown and (blech!) orange.
