When Hope was in college in *cough cough* everyone was being assigned an email address that was their name and setting up their personal emails the same way. She wanted something different and waited for inspiration to strike.
One day, she stumbled upon an episode of “Winnie the Pooh” on TV, featuring Pooh eating some bad honey and going on a drug-trip-like dream sequence starring brightly colored elephants and kangaroo-like creatures: Heffalumps and Woozles! She recalled this from seeing it long ago as a little kid and referenced them in her email name.
Stagewoozle has stuck, often delighting people to remember that episode, and now she refuses to change it!
