LoL by: alisaorrdaisy

This week we’re happy to have alisaorrdaisy as our featured Cheezburger User. This much-loved Cheez peep has been making LOLS and friends on the site for years, and we’re excited to learn more about her!

We’d love to hear the story behind your username!
That’s easy. My name is Alisa Orr and my nickname is Daisy. The story behind my nickname is a little more detailed, but I’ll just hit the highlights. I had a beautiful dog named Daisy (my favorite flower) and my old online ID was Daisy’sHuman. People just started calling me Daisy, and then it kind of seeped into my offline life as well. My husband still calls me Daisy.

How long have you been a member of the Cheezburger community and what made you want to join?
I have been coming to ICHC pretty much since the beginning, but did not create a user account until maybe 2 years ago. I wanted to join so I could favorite LOLs and get to know people. It’s nice to get credit for the LOLs you make too, instead of being the ‘unknown comic’. :)

What do you look for in a Cheez friend, and what’s the best way to make a new friend?
I am fortunate to have an incredible group of friends here on ICHC. They’re the best! I look to people who have a similar sense of humor and make and favorite the kinds of LOLs that interest me. I like folks who care about animals and other people. I also enjoy people who make me think. People who are smart, creative and unique inspire me. I think the best way to make a new friend is to put yourself out there and just ask. If they don’t accept, try not to take it too personally. Sometimes the reason is as simple as they like to keep their friend list short and manageable.

What is your favorite site on Cheezburger and why?
If I were to pick one of my own sites it would be LOLtashunz. This is a site where I save my weekly quote LOLs and the inspirational and thought-provoking quotation LOLs of others. If I were to pick a favorite site which is not my own I would be torn between JeffCat’sBookClub and KKPS by 1TeamKSO.

What is it about Cheezburger that makes you happy?
The LOLs! The expressive looks and actions of the animals (and sometimes humans) and the amazing captions people come up with. Of course with LOLs come the people that create the captions. The people I’ve met here, and the friends I’ve made, mean a lot to me.

If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be? Cheezburgers?
My Mom’s spaghetti. It has always been my favorite thing. The sauce is unlike any other that I have ever tasted. My mother passed away a year ago but I know her recipe by heart and still make it.

If you could create a new feature for Cheezburger members to use on our sites what would it be, and why do we need it?
I really think we need a private messaging system because sometimes you just don’t want everyone to see everything you say. Like if you want to give a Cheezpeep your phone number or email addy and you don’t want anyone and everyone who sees your
dashboard to know it.

What else do you like to do when you’re not on the Internet?
I enjoy many things like reading, gardening, art, crafts, music, spending time with my family and pets, but mostly I’m a cook-a-holic! I love to cook, try new recipes and make up new recipes. I use my family as ‘guinea pigs’ for my experiments.
