I was just curious about our usernames. How did you pick yours and what is it's meaning to you?
It was 2002. I was in the midst of my divorce from my first husband and was in the process of creating my own identity. I was also fairly new to the internet and forums so I figured there was no time like then to come up with a username that was "me".

I'm part Serbian and I really like cats so I looked up the Serbo-Croatian word for "cat": mačka

That was perfect! And it uses parts of my real name.

The č is pronounced ch like church, so it became Machka pronounced much like Match-ka.

I've been Machka for 17 years now.
