    GreenLesPaul, you're already on my "He's Alright!" list of people. I say that seeing the beverage of choice on the Desk.
    A nice green bottle of Canada's Best Lager, Moosehead. My all time favorite!

    There are some who call me... Tim (which makes sense because that is my name). However, since there are approximately 32 million Tim's out there, the name is long taken before I get there. Some part of me rebels against the dehumanization of throwing a number at the end of my name ("I am Timothy unit #557.02242"), so I added the 'abababaluka' at the end--VERY few timabababaluka's around .

    Aside from being called 'dork' all throughout high school, I've only ever had one earned nickname. Years ago when I used to deliver office supplies to get me through college, the people I worked with gave me the nickname 'high-tech-timmy'. When I asked why, they said, "It's just that with your glasses and all, you look all smart--you know... kinda high-tech." Turns out that 'high-tech-timmy' was a tongue-in-cheek reference to the fact that, in two years time, I never was able to figure out how to operate a multiple-line phone.

    Man, do I hate nicknames!

    For me, I am always hunting down the root cause of a problem, or I AM the root cause of a problem! Plus, roots caused me problems in my tenting days.

    Besides, my real nickname is rated "R" and therefore not appropriate to the family-friendly HF!

    I love Cannibal's story! I can't wait to hear from Angry Sparrow, KerMegan, TeeDee, Hooch, and Knotty!

    Mine is self appointed; hey! I needed a screen name. A combination of elements of my last name, my Irish heritage and the fact that I'm a little full of s%&*.
    The gene pool needs a life guard.

    Put your thinking cap on for a minute and change the first letter of the word for a letter closer to the front of the alphabet. Wanna talk about hating nicknames!

    Got mine from a bottle of Zinc Lozenges that used to sit by my computer when I was growing up. AKA ZeLo or ZoLo. No fancy story, just needed a screen name for an account way back when, and that is what I have used since.
