Oki GB & Trish too, u asked for it...
Firstly I must let you know that I am an avid figure skating fan. I have gone to the European Championships in Copenhagen in 1994, and the Worlds in Birmingham UK 1995. "Urmaniac" is my nickname I got from the girls I was hanging out with there. My hero then, still is and will be always Alexei Urmanov, someone may remember he won the 1994 Olympic games at age 20. Anyway I was always chasing him around like a... um, "maniac", thus one of the gals came up with this very fitting nick, Urmanov + maniac = Urmaniac!! I use this nick for just about any user ID on the internet (one of the reasons is it is easier to remember if I just use one...), and the first time I tried it on AOL, to my astonishment, "urmaniac" was already taken, so I just threw in 13 at the end, as I am a perpetual 13 year old at heart!! So... that is the story behind my nick!! (I must remind you guys again... I cautioned it would be very silly!!)

And while I am at it I must show you the guy in question...

Alexei Urmanov
