You might be in luck Goodweed. I have been reading that wildflowers and certain weeds like dandelions are becoming fashionable. Soon it may not be as offensive to people have have a yard they way you want.

I WISH I was taller, then I might've had a chance to further my baseball career. I'm 5'9". 6'2" would've been a nice height.

At 6'2" it hurts more when you fall down.

LOL, Thanks Mr. Farkeltush.

My right gam is a piece of asparagus, the left is a carrot. Stay away from my onions & potuti.

I feel so seclusive and recluded. Joe, big 50 here, 6'5", gimp crip, prep school teacher, private chef, weight lifter, tattooed, pierced, partnered. any pic I posted would intimidate the masses, although the only thing you have to fear about me is the heat of my Jamaican curried goat (2 habaneros per pot)

410 is my area code...North Chesapeake Bay. Robo is short for Roboteacher-cyborg from State College...puting fear into the hearts and minds of teenagers forced to diagram sentences, repair their split infinitives, crop their dangling modifiers, preventing the ending of sentences with prepositions, and enforcing correct MLA style and format. I am the Grammar Police, and I know where you live at, dudes!

Anyway I am female, my name is Licia. You can see me in the pic on the right hand side on my profile page along with my beau Cristiano.
And I am not saying YOU ARE maniac, "Urmaniac" is my fave nick given by a good friend of mine, this was created because I was (and still am) such a dedicated, crazed fan of a certain figure skater from the last decade named Alexei Urmanov, thus "Urmanov + maniac = Urmaniac". When I first tried to use this on AOL, to my great surprise, it was already taken, so I threw in "13" because it seemed like I was a perpetual 13 year old!!
I would've never guessed this one. Not in a million years.

Wow.
I feel like there are life stories behind some of the names.
And they're quite interesting.
Thanks QSis for starting it, I learned a bunch...

As for me, I'm a girl, and it's a nick name from a friend going through a repetitive syllable phase (there was a Kiki, so I became Marmar).
Mar means snake in Farsi and I used to wear a snake necklace until 20 of the 30 stones fell out.
I guess I could also just say I like to scratch(English), or love the sea (Spanish), but when I was seven I wanted a boa constrictor, so I guess the snake fits me the best. Though now I'm kind of scared of them.
