A beloved form of digital communication signed off to that great big chatroom in the sky today, and The Second City would like to pay its respects by remembering our original AOL  Instant Messenger screen names.

  • Cameron Creekmur: tptotally (Stands for tennis player totally - so embarrassing!)
  • Kate Eddy: LilTootSieRoLL337
  • Heather Scholl: Luv2sing1000 (My mom created my account and since any relevant numbers to my life were taken, she took AOL's suggestion of "1000." I really do Luv 2 sing tho. LOL. brb g2g back to work. TTYL.)
