gives a whole new meaning to "whip it oot!", huh taxy?

years ago, a friend who is a guitarist got a blood clot in his hand which caused it to blow up like a balloon. when he showed me his inflated hand, i couldn't resist accusing him of buying that cream that's supposed to make your penis larger...






for my username: my real name is tom, and when i started in my company 24 years ago, my supervisor needed to have a dozen huge, platter type disk drives moved from one end of our building to the other. these drives were gigantic and heavy; roughly the size of a clothes washer and dryer back to back, weighing hundreds of pounds.

since i was the rookie, he told the older guys to get the "young buck" to do it, so after getting them all moved by myself the nickname bucky stuck.

later, a korean coworker was confused as to whether my name was bucky or tom, so he just called me buckytom. most people at work call me that, but my family and friends still call me tommy.

Bolas De Fraile or Monks Balls was given to me by an Argentinian student many yrs ago in Spain when we were running from Franco's police after the students uprising in Madrid.I was not a student but scousers hate Fascism and love a good ruck.
In Argentina they are known as Suspiro De Monja but anarchists call them Bolas De Fraile


The Catalan people who I was with are like scousers, they hated Franco and Bull Fighting

@ Bolas: Catalonia Banned Bullfighting in Late 2010

@ Bolas,

Firstly, thanks so much for your post ... Very entertaining, interesting and in good humor.

Secondly, I wanted to tell you that the autonomous Government, The Generalit ( President ) of the 4 Catalan Provinces: Barcelona, Girona, Tarragona and Lèrida banned Bullfighting in late 2010 under the former socialist Prime Minister José Luis Rodriguez Zapatero. GOOD !

Thanks again for your wonderful post.
Margi.

My family (wife and kids) all have the same initials. E.M. We were 3me on another forum and then 4me when my son was born. 4me has usually been taken by other users on alot of sites so it morphed into 4meandthem.

didi is one of my nicknames. That particular username was used, so I added the initials of my surname. In hindsight I could have been a bit more "creative" with a username, but hey ho.
