nicknames/handles..what they mean - Page 6

post #151 of 398
self effacing moniker that ideeeez me as a free-heel skier.
post #152 of 398
I love to ski , ¨don´t fall here, please¨ out of bounds unpatrolled narrow chutes and bowls with rock barriers down here in the Argentinian ANDES.

Maybe it´s not really extreme, but as I´m 50 years old I thought that EXTREME VETERAN was a good definition of my skiing tastes.

I even made a skihat with the name !!!!

(the problem with the name is that my friends here joke that what it really means is that I´m EXTREMELY veteran!!!! )

"O, Nolobolono, you are a palindromic presence, as well as a MARMOT--Tom Ram."

"sno'more" is an agreeable sentiment that I figured most of the crowd here would relate to. It's also a reference to my situation when I started posting to this website--I was coming to grips with the unpleasant fact of life that "my job--it's no more."

Mine comes from reaching the goal of skiing every state that offers it on the East Coast. Still need Conn. Tenn. and N.C

Pretty obvious... but seeing as I only get out west every other year or 3. This year I'll be skiing Penn., W.Va, Vt., Me., and NY,............ well go figure. [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]

Mine's pretty obvious: It's the one my parents gave me.

The spelling was my grandmother's maiden name.

Liked your story, Bob.

Happens to be my initials so sometimes people call me that today. When I was a kid "JD" stood for "Juvenile Delinquent". We used to call each other "JD" but for for me, it stuck. I guess you had to be there. Capitalizing it takes more effort, typing isn't my key competancy. Hence jd

Got mine from a buddy I used to ski with in Germany; he called it out to me quite often, and it's stuck with me ever since.
I think it means, roughly tranlated, the equivalent of "Buddy."
Scheisskopf! Hey, Buddy!
Great forums, btw! [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]

You say he was your buddy? What kind of $h!#head "buddy" would call you THAT?!

Answer to the number 1 + 2 questions from students...

I don't know how I missed this one for so long.

My name is really quite easy to figure out. I am a skier. I am a teacher(Public School). Simple enough!

At one time I actually did both at the same time, but now I just ski when I am no the slopes.

Actually, Miss Iowa Ski Bunny, that WAS intended to be "lite" . . . you gotta think about it, though [and having salacious tendency helps]. "Imagination is more important than knowledge". . .

Oboe, please misquote a bit better...
Speak as they please, what does the mountain care?
Ah, but a man's reach should exceed his grasp,
Or what's a heaven for? All is silver-grey,
Placid and perfect with my art: the worse!
I know both what I want and what might gain,
And yet how profitless to know, to sigh
"Had I been two, another and myself,
"Our head would have o'erlooked the world!" No doubt.

Or do you believe that Andrea del Sarto really was the faultless painter?

post #176 of 398
Miss Iowa Ski Bunny....yeah, I like it..... yeah, that's the ticket, sure, ok, well, why not? [img]tongue.gif[/img]

Double Down 11- My name is simple to understand especially for the other Tahoe skier/gamblers in the house. When playing blackjack, you should always double your bet when you have 11, especially when the dealer has a 6 showing. "Some days I ski for free and other days its really expensive. Come on Blackjack!!!"
