NICKNAMES

  1. Hol
    Strangely only used by family on my Dad's side. I can't remember the last time my Grandpa/Aunt/Uncle called me Hollis.
  2. HJ
    My brother is "Eddie Jay" and I'm "Hollis Jane" so my dad used to call us "EJ" and "HJ". I vehemently opposed it's use once I hit middle school and started referring to other things as HJs.
  3. Toots
    Used only by Chris. We met on the set of "OZ: The Great and Powerful". My costume had a corset and he saw me walking around in it one day and said "Hey Toots!" I heard "Tits" and proceeded to berate him until I ran out of breath and he corrected me. I now call him "Tits" more than I call him "Chris" and he still calls me "Toots".
  4. Splatter
    Used primarily by Chris, rarely other friends. I am clumsy x💯💯💯. I knocked over a pitcher of beer and Chris said I "don't just knock things over, I splatter them".
  5. Business Man
    Used only by @mia on days when I'm working and she's not and wants to hang out. We pretend that I'm a business man earning a living for our family but rarely have time to see our children. Also used when she is working and I'm not.
  6. Hollywood Hollis
    Used only by my brother and two closest cousins. After moving to LA, I came home for Christmas and said "Well, such and such doesn't happen like that in LA" and they WILL NOT let me live it down. Pictured is a Christmas present I received from them this year. My most embarrassing nickname.
