I love that story GW! My boys were always small too and got bullied a lot. How wonderful of your dad!!

Mine is BORING, I'm a girl, well, maybe not quite "girl" anymore and I'm born and bred in Texas. That's it.

My name takes creativity to the lowest of the low...it's just my name and last initial.

As for Buck, that was his pen name he used in his syndicated humor writing. He wanted to come up with a "manly" name, so his column was entitled Guy Stuff by Buck. It worked well and he wove the name skillfully within his columns. His real name was Joe.

Robo has nothing to do with Rob or Robert. (my name is Joe) I am a person with a disability (pwd); I wear leg braces. When the movie Robocop first came out some of my friends coined the name Roboteach, (I am a teacher) and Robo for short. The 410 was my area code, (it has changed, but not enough to warrant a screan name change.) Obviously I don't mind the nickname.

Well mine is a play on my surname which includes mini and my size - I'm an overweight 6'3"" man.

Mine is pretty obvious - I am Fisher's mom. I had to shorten it because MandolinLoriNeilNicholasSebastianMyles&Fisher's Mom was just too tiring to type!

When I moved out on my own I was 17 years old and very very much alone. I moved to WA with a friend of mine from CA and lived there for several months in an apartment in the woods of washington state and slept on the floor because i couldnt buy a bed. All I could afford to eat was tuna out of cans, peanut butter and jelly, milk and a lot (LOT) of the double chocolate flavored snack pack puddings.

My mother used to include one (always) in my sack lunches when I was in school. I think keeping them in my fridge was my way of staying...i dont know...a kid, or close to home? Ever since then I have always had the double chocolate flavored snack packs in my fridge (yes there's some in there now). And 85 is the year I was born so...there ya have it!
