uselessness x 5

I "borrowed" (okay stole) this from Alissa.

Reading these sorts of things is always a favorite past time of mine. And lists, love me some lists. And I also love gifs and fully accept that I am no Alissa. I am also clearly aware that there are more than five questions here but hey! I made each one require five answers. Math. It's not my forte.

5 names people like to call you other than your real name:
1. Mom
2. Mama
3. Laur
4. Way back in the day I was L-Train. Or Train for short. 
5. Nana. This one is just Matt, and I also call him Nana. It started before we were married. In Peter Pan when the children are first flying to Neverland, the dog Nana is left behind and Micheal says, "poor Nana" all sad and pitying-like and then sprinkles her with fairy dust. For some very odd reason I started calling Matt 'Nana' in the best of Micheal voices.
