Some are pretty easy to understand. Others not so much.
So what does yours represent?
Mine is my first pair of brand new skis, no more hand me downs/used stuff
Originally had the name XJguy....that's the name I used to use on every on-line forum regardless of topic, stems from my passion for the Jeep XJ series....but that is less the case now, and I had some issues with some fellow Jeepers so I decided to put the past behind me. So I took on the nickname that many of my friends use on and off that being Richie-Rich....I got that one because my name is Richard and because I tend to live my life a bit on the spendy/affluent style. There ya have it, now you know.
I have a sailboat called Deliberate. When I bought it, the previous owner left a copy of Thoreau's Walden with a dogeared page that spoke, if I recall, to the value of deliberate travel. Spoke to me too.
It's my name, don't wear it out. If you don't post anything you wouldn't say to someeone's face, your mother, or your boss then why not just be yourself? It's not like I need to fib to get out of work for powder days out here LOL!
I lived in a dorm in my first year college. Of the 40 guys, five shared my name, Mike. Nicknames kind of developed. I was/am a big Manchester United fan, and wore the kit when playing pick up soccer. I guess Mike the guy with all the Manchester United stuff was shortened to Manchester. The name stuck.
81 is my birth year.
Comes from one time standing on the top of Mt. Whitney after doing the Muir Trail, and looking up the Sierras, peak beyond peak beyond peak, seemed like all the way past Yosemite.
Hey Noodler, I always figured it was because didn't you once speak about noodling down a slope?
Not that I recall, but it is funny that "noodling" also refers to a skiing style as well as plunking around on guitars. If anyone happens to frequent some of the more popular guitar forums and you see posts from Noodler then ya'll know who it is .
Yuki .... pronounced .... U-Kee ... = in Japanese .. "Winged God of the Snows" and since that described me to a tee I went with it.
Actually it is from Japan ... but more from karate days ... means snow ... no more nor less.
LOL, not zactly legit huh? I make that claim so I can be Irish on St Pats Day. The image is just a knock off of the historical one I have at home. It is a lot more basic than the impage I posted. Basically, just a lion clutching a quiver of three gold guilded darts. Too bad they don't have a version with a bear huh? I'dhave to make that my Avatar if they did.
Twofold (but in the end it's one and the same) :
-Read Homer, the Odyssey.
-Or check an old spaghetti western by the title : "My name is Nobody" (with Henry Fonda nonetheless)
In all these years only one colleague made immediately the link to Homer...
In the translation that I'm most familiar with, Odysseus tells the Cyclops that his name is "NOMAN". Might have caught your reference then. Still, like the name Nobody. Gives your posts a special allure.
