Things That Make You Go "Hmmm"--AAQI Usernames

Golden Memories, Digital Mandala
© 2009 Fannie Narte

This mandala was digitally created using my AAQI art quilt "Golden Memories."

Ami and her volunteer staff work extra hard during the first ten days of each month to make sure each auction is a success. Success is determined by the generosity of the bidders each month. The folks at AAQI go through the e-mail bids, make sure everything is posted accurately, they answer questions, and much more.

Daphne, a volunteer at AAQI, broadcasted an e-mail to AAQI supporters this morning. She raised interesting questions, questions that make you think and wonder such as:

How do people choose their usernames?

My process for choosing a username is simple: Something I can remember, and something that is available.

Daphne brought up an interesting question, but you know me; I go further. I like to play the "what if" game. What if we paired the usernames with the quilts' names. That would give our wild imaginations a bigger playground. Here's some of the interesting ones I found:

bamagiraffe is currently bidding on three quilts which have autographs by famous people such as Adam Felber, Amy Dickinson, and Charles P. Pierce. Very generous bidder--three quilts. BAM--agiraffe. Thanks, bamagiraffe!

dragon lady is bidding on "Count the Cows." Thanks, dragon lady!

mom of 3 is bidding on "I Love Cats." Thanks, Mom of 3!

The current bidder on my quilt, corn & beans, is bidding on "Golden Memories." Thanks, Corn & Beans!

Hopefully by the time this post goes live, the AAQI site will have been updated with even higher bidders--success!

Let your imagination run wild and play the "what if" game. These generous bidders make AAQI auctions a success. Thank you, Bidders! Thank you, Ami and Volunteer Staff!

Just another way of looking at things, things that make you go "hmmm, what if . . ."
