Mine is from my pre-ER days at Mega-Corp and a typical Sales/Marketing battle. A very green but fast tracked Marketing wonder boy thought I had my head up my a** and would tell anyone who would listen. I began to sign any e-mails that I sent him as Noggin Inmearse , which I'm sure he shared. He bailed and had two jobs (downward spiral) with other companies before I was "offered" my package. My hand had been raised for several years.
Life is good. Mega is happy and I am ecstatic. Boy wonder is struggling I hear.
Cheers!
Noggin

I play 18th century flute and JJ Quantz wrote a famous treatise on how to play the flute.

I'd rather be hiking in the mountains like John Muir (only with our modern conveniences).

Works great and all, but......

I chose Dreamer, because I was dreaming about what my life would be like after I retired.

Because SOME day, I hope to retire, if the SUM adds up to support me in the lifestyle to which we've become accustomed

See my avatar. I have no imagination, so I just go with something familiar.

When I first bought a computer I was setting up an email account and was prompted for an email address (for some reason I thought this had to be sort of anonymous). On my desk I had a souvenir hat from the Chilkoot trail in Alaska so I just went with that. When I opened this account I needed a user ID. That email account had been closed, but the word was still in mind so I went with it once again.

Pretty boring actually.

I believe that I confused the grasshopper with the ant, but I liked the kung foo, sitting at the masters knee theme. I was already retired (2006) when I showed up here.

I wanted something that to Google might resemble a grain of sand on a beach.
