Re: Curious about Monikers

I guess I won't post my proof pic because I don't want to screw up the HTML layout for any of the forum members, and some people are still running 32" LCDs.

Re: Curious about Monikers

Back in college a buddy of mine started calling me Big Rich. That morphed to Bigrich, Big Grinch, and then Big Scrinch. I guess I could have called myself Big instead of Scrinch, but then somebody would start asking for proof. :

Hey, I've got a Yanmar tractor too... F15D that I've had for a couple of years. They're great little units!

Re: Curious about Monikers

My name, when properly pronounced, sounds like Pelican (the O is silent, like the P in swimming). Since, whenever I tried to register with an online service, someone else had beat me to Pelican, I prepended my initials to get a unique moniker....pfpelican.

Re: Curious about Monikers


According to wikipedia:

"Individuals who have said that they have seen Bigfoot often give similar descriptions. They generally describe what is a 7 to 9 foot (2 to 2.5 meters) tall, ape- or human-like bipedal creature, broad-shouldered and of a strong build, covered in dark brown or dark reddish hair. The head seems to sit directly on the shoulders, with no visible neck ever reported. The head is pointed, similar to the sagittal crest of the male gorilla. In fact, a good description would be of a 'long-legged male gorilla'. [citation needed]

Reports sometimes describe large eyes (Green 1978:16), a pronounced brow,[6] and a large, pointed, low-set forehead[7] that is alternately reported as crested and rounded
."

C'est moi!

Got my username from the Dan Millman book (and now a movie), "Way of the Peaceful Warrior." The book was thoroughly enjoyable, and the movie was a good adaptation (though not nearly as deeply rich as the book, still worth the watch).

I knew as I wrote it that I left myself wide open dangling there up for a riposte.

I'm sorry for the shock. Snapping up an easy poke at the exposed soft white parts is not usually my style.

So dusk to dawn is a reminder that life is short. ER when you can; you may not get the chance later.

Very easy, I like Budweiser! Especially Bud Light. Hence the moniker.

My German surname begins with a "Z" and I was nicknamed "Zipper" many many years ago.

I'm ScooterGuy because I now ride a 2004 Suzuki Burgman AN650 "motor scooter," which, with a 2-cylinder, 638 cc displacement, means that it's a 'wolf-in-sheep's-clothing,' with a top speed of 110 mph. Having a CVT 'automatic transmission,' I dont have to worry about shifting, or being in the right gear ... just RIDE! Suits me, as a reprobate DINK on FIRE!

Lots of creative monikers here. Wow. It seems whenever I'm about to sign up for a forum or board, I really just want to get on with it, and don't spend much time thinking about what to call myself.

Sheryl is a nickname I picked up at work years ago. I think they were making fun of me. Sheryl was probably some dorky character on a tv show I never saw. But it stuck.

I go by "The Professor" because I are one!!!!!!!! And hopefully I will become "The Ex-Professor" or the "ER'd Prfessor" sometime in the VERY NEAR future.
