I have a great many interests, and as they change through the years, my username has kind of morphed with them.

Back in college, I had a betta phase. I had tons of betta fish. My favorite betta at the time was black with tattered-looking fins who I thought looked like a pirate flag. So I named him Calico Jack, after my favorite pirate. I joined a betta forum and used that as my screen name.

Then I started collecting My Little Ponies and joined a MLP forum. Calico Jack was a little rough for a pony forum, so I changed it to Calico Star. Sounded a little more cutesy, and I do love the stars.

When I started raising goats, Calico Star sounded a little TOO cutesy, so I merged the two words and came out with Calistar. Most people assume the "Cali" is for "California," but I AM from California so that works too :p And my farm name has the word Star in it, so again, it works, although I have debated just changing my screen name to my farm name.

I joined the forum when one of our goats was dying and I was desperate for advice, we had 21 goats at the time so that's what I made my username be.....sadly she ended up not making it so now we have 20 goaties.

My username has it's history in Lord of the Rings. In Lord of the Rings the elven word for "friend" is Mellon (actually pronounced Mell-own). So for all you out there that know how to spell melon, my username is in fact not a mistake. 馃槃 One day I drew this melon on a chalk board and labeled it "Mellon Friend".

<-- See my avatar, that's it!

I thought it would be a perfect online persona, and so it was. It is my username and avatar across the web so if you ever see another Mellonfriend, that's me! 馃榿

Fun fact, the way I wrote "friend" below the melon looks nothing like my handwriting. I like to try out different fonts when I write artistically.

They say "mellon" in the movies. If you watch it again, keep an ear out! Lord of the Rings is literally my favorite thing. My does Bella and Prim are named for Blibo and Frodo's mothers, Belladonna and Primula.

That鈥檚 what I thought too.

When my kids were little, they called carbonated drinks, fizzy drinks and they鈥檇 be in fits of laughter for some reason watching the bubbles 鈥渆xplode鈥 out sporadically.

Fast waaaay forward to the day I went to visit the farm where I was getting my girls (not pick up day, just meeting them and getting tips from the breeder). There were like 50 baby goats there all lounging in the sun. As soon as we opened the gate, they jumped up and went bouncing and hopping around in random directions. I fell in love with goats at that moment. They reminded me of the 鈥渇izzies鈥 my kids thought were so entertaining. And I said to the breeder, 鈥淥h my gosh, they鈥檙e fizzy goats.鈥 She looked at me like I was crazy but was very nice about not actually saying it.

So, when I was creating a profile here, that was the first thing that popped in my head.

That's so cute, I love it!
There a My Little Pony named Fizzy. She's a popular one and back when I was on the My Little Pony forum, there were several users with references to her in their name. So I think of the My Little Pony when I see your name.

Unfortunately mine's probably self explanatory. I haven't actually hiked with a goat for a while now though. Bean was the last wether I trained.
Losing my hiking partner and the club packers being so clichish and unwelcoming just pretty much ruined it for me.
