I'm a feller. My last name begins with the letter 'Z'. When I was in high school I had a few nicknames surrounding that... starting with 'Z-Man', later shortened to simply 'Z', and often then referred to as 'The Z'.

Back in cigar boom days, it was hard and not all together legal to get Cuban cigars, so all the packages were sent to my dog (just in case), his name was Charlie. One time mail person walks in to give me a package and says to me: “Hey, Charlie, there is a package for you.” Since then it stock.

Oh, and the avatar looks very much like me inside and out.

My name actually is "Allen", and I live in Michigan, thus the "MI". Years ago, on another board, someone posted a link to a website where you could create your own custom South Park character. I ended up created the avatar you see. It's actually a fair representation of me, in uniform at the kitchen I work in.

Nice thread. I participate in other Kitchen forums in Italy, and there we have the use to sign with our real name. Here, I've seen that nobody does so, and I've used the same behaviour.
The Photo is me: It's a concession to the fact that I too find strange to speak with someone without knowing if IT is a "he" or a "she", and so, I don't want to compell others to have my same trouble.
RDG is very simple: my name. Roberto Della Giovanna. Roberto is the name, Della Giovanna the family name. I say so, because many years ago I went in a hotel in Spain, and just now I receive Xmas wishes for "Senorita Giovanna Della"..... . I'm a designer, crazy for bridge (I play in some national tournaments, but surely I'm not a champion). And I'm too fat...... : 1,85, 101 kg.

i think it's still against the law to have cuban cigars in the u.s., charlie.

the last time i was in bermuda, i bought a box of real cuban montechristos and cohibas and had them shipped to my girlfriends' office. i removed the bands, wrapped it up in gift paper, and surrounded them with other little trinkets and gifts and wrapped the heck out of the box. i had no problem getting them through customs.

unfortunately, those went quickly, so now i'm down to my last real cohiba, and a few macanudo portofinos.

i'm not a churchill fan. i prefer a small ring, long cigar with a natural wrapper.

Yes you are right. But I don't have time to smoke, or money to buy them anyway nowadays. 5 kids will do that to your cigar stash. So, it doesn't matter anymore. I like big cigars though.
