    Wink You Know You Are On The Forums Too Much When....

    Not only has my husband slipped up a few times and called me "Lima" to new acquaintances but today, when someone asked me what my name was, the "Li-" was slipping out before my brain could even say, "Wait! Your name is ....."

    Haha... You thought I'd give it away... Didn't you!!

    I don't mind being referred to as Lima, however. After all, I started it. I picked the name for myself, didn't I?!?!

    I just thought it was funny that when I hear the word Lima, my head flips around like someone has just called my name.

    Just out of curiosity...

    How did you come up with that name ?

    Is it pronounced, Leema or Lie-ma ?

    Just think...

    Alpha
    Bravo
    Charlie
    Delta
    Echo
    Foxtrot
    Gulf
    Hotel
    India
    Juliet
    Kilo
    LIMA
    Mike...

    and so on and so on.

    "Lima" in the phonetic alphabet stands for L, the first initial of my last name. The tunes stands for Loony-Tunes, the cartoons. I always loved them growing up and my life is sometimes like a silly cartoon.. a kind of exaggeration and play on what people would consider normal...

    Hey Lima,
    saw you on TV last week, Channel 6, I think when they were covering our beloved Govenor Rendell's shutting down of the PICS system.

    Thankfully it was way shorter a shutdown than anyone thought. Hope your shop didn't take too much of a sales hit.

    Lima Tunes - She listens to a lot of Inca Music in Peru?

    - I can't believe you folks have not guessed her real name yet.

    You simply have to read limatunes backward.

    Her real name is Senu Tamil.

    Whoops!....Sorry! I didn't mean to let the cat out of the bag Senu....I mean lima.

    My wife actually called me Big E the other day... I liked it (ego boost). Everyone else already does, but it was nice to hear it from her.

    Lavern?
    Lucy?
    Lisa?
    LeWanda?
    Lee?
    LeeAnne?
    Lincoln?

    Ok, Now i'm grasping.

    I think Lima is perfect. Everyone likes a woman with a little mystery behind her.

    Analyzing.... Lima stands for "L" and she likes Looney Tunes?
    I am going to go for Lola as in Lola Bunny.

    I always guessed that Lima had something to do with JDs' or your brothers military unit designation. And the answer was right there in front of me the whole time...

    I know your last name, and your hubbys' 1st name, but your first name eludes me....

    ARG!!!! That's what I get for posting last at night... or early in the morning as it was.

    Thanks for setting me straight.

    Yes, it was a good thing that the PICS system wasn't down as long as we had thought it would be.

    We actually didn't loose hardly any business. The PICS system wasn't down long enough for it to really effect us. The day it went back up it was a little slow because the general populous didn't know that it was back up, but we posted signs and spread the word and sure enough, we got our customers back very soon. Sales have been just fine though the system has been a bit sluggish.

    Background checks that usually only take about 10-15 minutes have been taking upwards to 30-40. People have been pretty patient, however.

    It's been better the last couple of days.

    I was pretty impressed, the day after the news aired was my day off but I went up to the shop to shoot at the range. I was in a Smith & Wesson ball cap, crummy clothes, no makeup and just shooting the breeze with a coworker when someone yelled, "Hey! That's the girl who was on the news!"

    I hadn't even known I was ON the news.

    I know this thread is old, but I wondered where you got the name Limatunes too. I thought your nickname was Lima and since it appears you "tune" guns, viola, LimaTunes- as in Lima tunes guns for a living

    Anyway, I like your Youtube videos and blog.
