Fun Monday Answers on a Tuesday

Wow - you guys are nosey little buggers, aren't you? Actually, it was pointed out that I never did explain the "Tiggerlane" portion of my blog title. Shame on me!

As you can read from the description above, it's a bit easy to see how a "Tiffany" could be dubbed a "Tigger." Add a passle of college buddies and a few pitchers of beer? Yeah - that's where the nickname originated. Bouncy, trouncy, flouncy, pouncy - fun, fun, fun, fun, FUN!

The "lane" portion? Very simple - it is my last name! And the reason I'm not shy about sharing this with all of you is that b/c of my business, my real name and photo are plastered everywhere.

Secondly, many of you asked how to do a strike-thru, and after a bit of research, I have found the answer. You have to use the word "strike" in the carrots, just like any other HTML coding...make sense? I tried to figure out how to "show" you the HTML coding here, but it just coded the dang sentence and struck thru it. But you know how to italicize and embolden text? Just use the word "strike" in the place you might put "em" or "strong."

Clear as mud? Make sense?

I love that saying "clear as mud"!
Thanks for sharing the origins of Tiggerlane! :)

Sandy said...

Thanks, Tig! I never would have figured out the lane. I thought you were just flouncin', bouncin', trouncin' and pouncin' down the lane of life.

James Burnett said...

I've been meaning to ask about the name. Now Tiggerlane makes perfect sense. Your text always did, but I mean I finally get the name. Cool stuff.

Karmyn R said...

AHA! I always wondered about the Lane portion of the Tigger. Got it now!

Willowtree said...

Or you could use the strikethrough button in the editor.

Karina said...

I'm just now getting around to visiting Fun Mondayers, so it looks like I had perfect timing, I got to hear the story behind Tiggerlane without having to ask! ;-) I've actually always wondered if you were just a huge fan of Tigger, so it's fun to learn the story behind it.

Oh, and WT, blogger doesn't have a strike-through butten in the editor. We're not cool like you typepad folks! ;-)

Bond said...

or you can just do this (but instead of parenthesis use the carrots)

(s) this will all have the strike through (/s)

Bond said...

OH and for italics you can do this
(i) and close with (/i)

Bold - this way
(b) and close with (/b)

M@ said...

Tiggers are jumpy.

Junebug said...

But what are carrots? You're confusing me and that's not a hard job.

janet said...

ok then. i feel so much better now! seriously!

Beckie said...

I wonder if anyone will call you at work now.... :)

I always wondered where the lane part came from.

Tiggerlane said...

kaytabug - I like that one, too - and you're welcome!

sandy - well, actually, I'm guilty of that behavior, too.

james burnett - thanks - and good to see you back on here! I'll be popping around the blogosphere again soon.

karmyn r - glad to enlighten!

willowtree - blogger doesn't allow such a frill.

karina - thanks for pointing that out to WT! He is so smug now, I'll bet.

bond - well, now aren't you just the smart one! Thanks! I just knew you were an HTML smartie.

m@ - only when prodded with electrical things.

junebug - it's those "greater than" or "less than" symbols...<>

janet - glad to assist in your nirvana!

beckie - wow, never thought of that - but then, I'm even more fun to talk to than in my writing. Wait, maybe I shouldn't encourage the natives...

bermudabluez said...

I always loved the bouncin' and a trouncin' and a flouncin'!! And I dont' think the natives need any more encouragement...if you know what I mean!!

Claudia said...

Tigger was always my favorite!! Tee-I-double guh-ER!! How can you not love it!

Desert Songbird said...

Vinny beat me to it; I knew you just needed to use an "s" in the HTML code for strike through.

Now, if could just figure out how to put in the "heart," we'd be all set...

Oh, and am still anxiously awaiting the final pics of the new house...

Tiggerlane said...

bermudabluez - I agree - some of them natives are FIERCE!

claudia - I SO agree! He is just huggable, too.

desert songbird - Ah...I am learning more and more every day! Thanks! And new pics will be up by Friday, if not before...promise.

Simply Jenn said...

I love your blog name. It fits you perfectly.

And you sell real estate in Tulsa? Hmm... I may email you sometime.

Tracey said...

You all rock! Thanks for the HTML lessons ;0)

swampy said...

Clear as mud !

Tiggerlane said...

simply jenn - actually, just two counties in far Eastern Oklahoma - even tho I am licensed for the entire state. I operate in Western Arkansas, for the most part.

tracey - something tells me I should take photo lessons from you!

swampy - you are too funny, girlie!

Sauntering Soul said...

Thanks for further explaining - both your name and the strike thru stuff. Computers and I just don't understand each other.

lisa marie said...

Ok, I did not know they were called carrots. Here I call them Biteythings :)

Tiggerlane said...

sauntering soul - you're welcome - and I have trouble with computers, more often than not!

lisa marie - they probaby aren't called carrots - in fact, I think the one that looks like a little "hat" is called a carrot, but NOT the "greater than" or "less than" signs. I think it was another neophyte mistake on my part! Sorry!

tiger lamb girl said...

Thanks for the html coding lesson. I think. I mean, I think I might understand;).

I'll have to try it [strike]out[/strike] - or not,lol.

tiger lamb girl said...

>>> <<<

Are those carrots? If so? I think I get it;).

Pamela said...

I'm happy to know about strike thru font effect. I can't do it (apparently) in comments, tho!!

Tiggerlane said...

tiger lamb girl - YES! Those are carrots - you SO get it!

pamela - dang - I didn't know it couldn't be done in comments...thanks for the tip.
