What Are Your Silly Monster Nicknames?

What Are Your Silly Monster Nicknames?

I sometimes refer to Pain Elementals as "f--king c---sucking a--hole motherf--king annoyingpieces of sh-t". THAT is an adorable nickname. How ever did you come up with it? :D Ma'amcubus, because I always imaginedMancubus having a neckbeard personality. Someone please edit a smallfedora into its sprites? Pain Elemental - Potato (not my idea though) Nice name, hehehe :D I also call Cacodemon tomato and mancubus "fat boy" :D I refer to revenants as 'spooky skeletons' quite often. Cacodemons are (of course) "flying tomatoes" Demons are "pinkys" but that's a rather common nickname. Shotgunguy : autistic marine with a shotgun Baron of hell : same as before but painted Shotgunguy : autistic marine with a shotgun Baron of hell : same as before but painted Spiderdemon : supposed to be smart , but he attacks his own kind??? but from now i will see chaingunner only like barney from simpsons :-D :-D I think there was a thread like this before but anyway can't find. I used silly names from my greek native language (I think Maes will have a laugh about it :). Translation follows. - Heavy machine dude: Taka-takes (kinda like the continuous taka taka taka sound the chaingun does) - Sometimes we called Cacodemon a Tomato. And Pain Elemental was called Melitzana (eggplant) for some reason (maybe the colors?) - I was joking calling the Imps Psarokoles (glue made out of fish or something, because the nearby sound I interpreted like someone whispering Psarokola Psarokola) - My brother was calling Arch-Ville "The GOD". Because he can ressurect and shit. didn't know being a forum staple was a bad thing On 9/7/2017 at 6:27 PM, 42PercentHealth said: Imp = Auntiedemon; because when I was younger, the idle snort noises Imps made reminded me of noises my aunt used to make.)

Royal Family: Nicknames They Have For Each Other | Reader's Digest

Aside from the supreme power and fortune, the royal family isn't all that different from us common folk. They have family get-togethers, create their own traditions, and make up nicknames for each other. Deadline News/REX/ShutterstockIts hard to imagine Queen Elizabeth II as a little kid, but when she was, she nicknamed herself Tillabet. Definitely a cute, fun name, but maybe to be used on official royal documents. As she grew up, Tillabet became Lilibet, and some of her family and close friends still use the name. Bet you didn't know these little-known facts about Queen Elizabeth either. Tim Rooke/REX/ShutterstockPrince Harry got this sweet nickname from his mother when he was two. Princess Diana got the inspiration for it while they were all vacationing in Australia. This is the touching way Prince Harry and Prince William keep their mother's memory alive . REX/ShutterstockThis isnt just another nickname Prince Harry hasand technically, Harry is a nickname as well. ( This is the prince's real name .) For a while, Spike was his alias. He used to have a Facebook page under the name Spike Wells so he could be in tune with his friends on social media undercover. After four years, he had to delete the account due to a security risk. REX/ShutterstockPrince William also had a nickname to protect his identity as a member of the royal family. When he studied at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, he was known as Steve. As far as we know, he successfully remained undercover as a student, but he is known for regularly breaking this royal rule . REX/ShutterstockBefore she married into the royal family, young Kate Middleton shared a nickname with one of her pet guinea pigs. According to Hello Magazine, there was one called Pip and one called Squeak because my sister was ca Continue reading >>

Do You Give Nicknames To Your Blood Sugars?

Do you give nicknames to your blood sugars? Diabetes is getting cured. JDRF, the leading global T1D research organization, is getting closer... but they need donations to continue. Give to JDRF and help 70-130 reach its fundraising goal of $2,500. So far, readers have given $690. Click to increase that number! As a Type 1 diabetic, I see lots and lots and lots of numbers. Not just between 70 and 130, but anywhere from, say, 30to 400. Many numbers I see over and over, and I have developed nicknames for some of them. For example, if I check and have a BG of 182, I think, Hey, its The Turk! You see, there was a movie from 1985 called Turk-182; I never saw it but I used to see the titlein TV listings all the time. Now, years later, 182 mg/dL has becomeThe Turk. ASchool Bus making me angry on atrain to Sarajevo. Another one, thankfully less common, is343. When I was in third grade, my school bus number in Nashville, TN was 343. I dont often get The School Bus these days, but when I do Im not as upset as I would be for some non-descript number say, a personality-less 342 (yuck!). Even when Im low I cant help but do it. A 66 is The Revolver, because my favorite Beatles album, Revolver, was released in 1966. Similarly, 78 is The Shellac, because I have several 78 rpm shellac records from the 1940s and 1950s. I use and recommend Amazon for stuff like diabetes travel gear. Click here to see why. A Revolverin rural Hungary. I know what its like to be low. When I am between 70 and 130 is when I tend to be at my happiest, and so having nicknames for those is easy because my mind is free and light and comes over all creative.

Cholesterol - Diabetes Self-management

Cholesterol - Diabetes Self-management

A waxy substance found in all of the bodys cells. The body uses cholesterol for a number of important functions, such as manufacturing certain hormones. As most people know, however, too much cholesterol in the blood can be damaging to the heart and blood vessels. The liver manufactures most of the bodys cholesterol, but we also get it directly from the foods we eat. Cholesterol travels through the bloodstream in the form of complex molecules called lipoproteins. There are several varieties of lipoproteins, including low-density lipoproteins (LDLs) and high-density lipoproteins (HDLs). LDL cholesterol, nicknamed the bad cholesterol, tends to mix with other substances in the blood and form buildups called plaques on the inner walls of blood vessels. These blood vessels can become hard and narrowed, decreasing blood flow, a condition known as atherosclerosis . Plaques can also break off, form clots, and block key blood vessels, causing heart attacks and strokes . HDLs carry cholesterol away from the arteries to the liver, where it can be removed from the body. This keeps cholesterol from building up inside blood vessels, earning HDL cholesterol the nickname good cholesterol. Doctors use the levels of HDL and LDL cholesterol to help determine a persons risk of heart disease. The more LDL cholesterol and less HDL cholesterol a person has, the greater his risk of developing heart disease. According to the cholesterol guidelines of the American Diabetes Association (ADA), adults with diabetes who have LDL cholesterol levels of 130 mg/dl or greater are at high risk of heart disease, those with levels of 100-129 mg/dl are at borderline risk, and those with levels below 100 mg/dl are at low risk. Men with HDL cholesterol levels under 35 mg/dl are at high risk, those with levels Continue reading >>

36 Catchy Diabetes Slogans

36 Catchy Diabetes Slogans

Depending on the individual patients health issues and related diabetic type, different treatments may be used from pills to insulin, or a combination of both. In 2011, approximately, 83.7% of men and 78.3% of women were treated with diabetes. Some causes are smoking, overweight, physical inactivity, hypertension, and high blood cholesterol. To raise continued awareness to the ill effects of this disease, the following diabetes slogans have become popularized over time. These are meant to encourage your own local campaign to raise awareness. A spoon full of insulin helps the sugar go down. A world free of diabetes is not our dream, it’s our pledge. Be nice to diabetics, we deal with enough pricks already. be well, know your BGL. Blood sugar – the world’s greatest scapegoat. diabetes the silent killer which kills part by part of our life. Diabetes, It’s only a word not a sentence. Diabetes: Don’t sugar coat it. Diabetics are naturally sweet. Duck the highs, duck the lows, duck the diabetes. Finger Prickin’ Good. got insulin? Help cure Diabetes; I’m tired of dealing with pricks. I am waiting for Apple to come out with the iPump. i shoot up when i get high. I wear Grey for someone who means the world to me. I’ve got a needle, and I’m not afraid to use it. I’m not ill, my pancreas is just lazy. Insulin is not a cure – it’s life support. Just a shotful of insulin helps the sugar go down, sugar go down, sugar go down. My pancreas is on strike. My pancreas runs on AAA batteries. Never underestimate the power of a diabetic. One day I would love to say I HAD diabetes. Please don’t sugarcoat it, I’m a diabetic. Someone I love needs a cure. Sugar, sugar you give me a rush! sugar? nah Im sweet enough.

Nick Names | Diabetic Connect

Nick Names | Diabetic Connect

That is a most uncreative nick name to get crowned with. It should have been something like "Sweet stuff" or "Needles" or something fun. That is what nick names are for. Of course it does help to actually like the nick name you are given. At home I am called Flake. That came from a long discussion on how flakey artists are. So my step daughter is called Frosted Flake, and we all laugh about it. I sign my cards to her that way and it is part of what makes our relationship special. Otherwise, a nick name like the one they gave you is just name calling. I would've punched whoever who gave me a diabetic nick name. nothing justifies someone making fun of your health. Sorry to hear that, I thought only kids were that mean. I've had a few nick-names as a kid, right thru my first college degree. That one was the worse, I've been "husky" since Jr high, then after HS, I put about 20 lbs, before going to coollege. I went to MLT school, so after one anatomy class, I was called adipose man (fat man), it hurt but I went along with it. But till this day it bothers me. But there's really nothing I could do. That is not only rude but shows lack of class. The disease is no joke and I agree with MrdCDogg completely. Next time they joke about your condition by referring to you by that name, remind them of your true name and set them back in place lest it continues as a "joke'. Shame on them I dont care if people say Im diabetic but being called Diabetic like its my name would be a little disconcerting. One of my nicknames as a child was Cherry and it stuck. Nicknames are big in the South. No one has given me a nickname based on my D status, atleast not to my face. I dont know wether to laugh or cry that others think D is no big deal and therefore fair game for name-calling :) That's just Continue reading >>

This is a secure and safe place for people to bitch, moan, argue, or rejoice (yes, really) about having Type 1 Diabetes. If something has inspired you or enraged you, here's your opportunity to let everyone know. Hi, I have noticed some people calling D by shortened nickname versions like "beeties". For some reason, in my head, I think of it as "Die-of-sweeties". Does anyone else have a nickname? On another topic, I was thinking we should medically change the name to differentiate us from Type 2. What about "Auto-immune pancreatic dysfunction" or APD for short? I like APD- it also stands for Accredited Practicing Dietitian, so one day I could be Kaito, APD, APD!!! I like that a lot :) I like to call Diabetes D (obviously) or Live-abetes which I saw on a Facebook page once. There's also "the big D" or just plain Type 1 - I find that if someone says "are you diabetic" rather than just a plain old "yes" I prefer "yeah, I'm type 1" - no diabetes mentioned at all, it seems to bring the emphasis away from type 2 most of the time, because then people have to think about it a bit more. I'd like to see a day when diabetes is differentiated by its mechanisms - autoimmune and metabolic (as in metabolic syndrome). "It is through the bitterness of disease that we learn the sweetness of health" I don't have a nickname for diabetes, although I gotta admit that "Die of sweeties" is kinda cute. I usually refer to it as "type 1", to avoid the obvious confusion with that other one. Interestingly there was a passionate debate going on in the big Facebook group about the name of type 1. Most people were supporting coming up with a new name, but I don't agree. Ours was the original, described way back in ancient Greece, so as far as I'm concerned I have type 1 diabetes, not PCP or ABC or CI Continue reading >>

Diabetes Language: What Readers Love And Hate

Diabetes Language: What Readers Love And Hate

Glucose Thingy, Sugar Checker, and Needles Does having a nickname for your gear change your relationship with it? I think we sort of think as Mr. Humalog & Mr. Lantus as friends. Personalizes, and not so medical sounding. Yes, makes an annoying situation comical. A bit of whimsy to lighten the seriousness of an ever-present condition. Calling it Sailor 2.0 brings up dear memories of my stellar dog, and makes me grateful for the technology that has brought me a CGM. Yes. It allows me to laugh about an aspect of managing my disease, which helps me not take myself so seriously and helps others not be afraid of it. Have you coined any other diabetes terms or phrases? Dolphin-ing for when my Dexcom sensor is off and the trend graph is bouncing up and down every 10-15 minutes because its like a dolphin jumping in and out of water. When my sugars are stuck on high, and I bolus a bunch of extra insulin, and it still wont come down, and then when it finally does and comes crashing, I call that flooding myself. Put that in your pump and prime it. I just suffered a low. My grandson always uses the word shaky when he feels low. The use of the word is quite specific and it helps us help him. My husband is Icelandic, and he told me that in Icelandic, diabetes translates as sugar sickness, so sometimes we use that moniker when referring to my type 1. Whats your B.S.? (meaning latest blood sugar #, not the other phrase)? Do you use any diabetes portmanteaus (word combinations)? Continue reading >>

Diabetic Diets 101

Diabetic Diets 101

Diabetes is an increasingly common disease, affecting about 8 percent of Americans -- and nearly a quarter of all Americans older than age 60 [source: CBS]. It's so common that it has made its way into regional dialects; it's known variously as "sugar," "the sugar" and "sugar diabetes" [source: Patrick]. As those nicknames suggest, diabetes affects the body's ability to process dietary sugar. If untreated, it can lead to numerous complications, including blindness, nerve damage, heart and circulation problems, gangrene and amputation of the feet, kidney failure and early death. The good news is that, in many cases, treatment, which usually involves a combination of diet and medication, can greatly reduce the risk of these complications. There are two types of diabetes. Type I (formerly known as juvenile diabetes) is sometimes called insulin-dependent diabetes. That's because Type I patients have to take insulin, either via regular injections or via an insulin pump. Insulin is the hormone produced by the pancreas that helps the body process sugar. Type I patients don't make enough insulin on their own. Type II diabetes (formerly known as adult-onset diabetes) is almost always a complication of being overweight. Although its causes and treatment are different from those of Type I, its symptoms and complications are highly similar. In type II diabetes, the body stops being able to use its own insulin. Type II patients may take insulin. They must also change their eating habits. The goal of a diabetic diet is twofold: to get the patient to a healthy weight (thereby reducing the physical causes of diabetes as well as many of its complications) and to regulate blood sugar by regulating the intake of the foods that produce it. In this article, we'll look more closely at diabet Continue reading >>

Queen Rania - Biography - Imdb

Queen Rania - Biography - Imdb

Her youngest child, Prince Hashem, was born on his father's 43rd birthday. Being popular comes when you have everything. But to be liked, it means that you must be treating people with respect and you must be showing kindness toward them. With my son, I make sure that he understands that he, at the end of the day, needs to be a decent guy. He needs to be compassionate and inclusive. A mom part of me wants him (crown prince Hussein) to just have a normal life and just have the normal teenage experience and have friends and not have any pressure. But another part of me understands that by having the title, he can learn more about the people, the problems and the protocol of our country. My virtual self can get closer to people easier than my real self. People sometimes think of queen as a title that's shrouded with protocol and formality, and for that reason sometimes people are not easily saying what they want to say. They're reluctant to express their opinions, and I kind of find that frustrating because I want to know what people really, really think. It creates a space where titles mean little and people can just say what they want. It opens a window to my life and opens a window for me into other people's lives so I can see what people are thinking or what the sentiment out there is all about. There's not really a day when I don't have anything to worry about. In addition to taking care of my family, there are also the 6 million people in my country that I have to think about, and I have to think about the issues of our country and everything that faces us. [as Queen Rania approaches age 40] The lines crept on my face when I wasn't looking. Now when I go to department stores and the saleswoman's like, 'Do you want to try this anti-wrinkle cream?' [I think]: 'Who is Continue reading >>
