Yay, Ygmir! Get them folks right with Odin, or the deity of their choice.

I'll bet you get a lot of requests after this. :coffee:

Hi Everyone!!! Had the pleasure of Little Flower's company here at our place last night and we spent today day soaking at the Hot Springs. Great lady, ((((Little Flower)))!!!

Hilarious wedding story, YG!!! Aserendipity, Little Flower and I are looking forward to arriving at the Hof by about noon on Saturday. Bringing up some tri-tip and sausages and some beer. Can't wait to see you all on Saturday!

Good story, Rhino, and good luck with the lady.

And a big Yay for the DOMA and Prop 8 decisions. My two daughters and their wives and their four children are all very happy that they now have equality.

Hugs to you all!

Hi Bar...

I miss you. A lot actually.

(sets up a round of glasses and pours...)

Here's a little Forget-Me-Not until I make it back.

Hmm. Go to a real or online thesaurus and start looking up words that describe you, until you find a synonym that amuses you, & has several syllables. (I'm told the Rangers all have at least 2 syllables, so that their names are easier to hear over the radio. Correct?)

I'd probably be Ranger Loquacious, if they'd let me.

I'm not comfortable enough with confrontation to be a Ranger, so you're welcome to that if it fits you. :) Might be too long . . .

Other ideas: movie character heros or villains, comic book heros, city names, dance styles or planets.

Twerker
damn brit (probably taken)
Graidawg (cause ya know, its what a lot of people call you)
kazoo
Grai (if one syllable is allowed but what Sav said makes sense on two syllables)
there's 5 in about a minute.

But I know what you mean, When I applied for GP&E they asked for a nickname and all I could put was Mike.

oh, such good stories of recent events.
I woke up at three this morning, and since I had to be up at 4, figured what the hell. I soldered up my little foghorn kit. Now... I've been looking at it for a half hour, wanting to test it. If it works, it will be a bad thing to do to my neighbors, in an apt. complex, where I am used to my neighbor's snoring. I think it might also just do a weird wimpy mmmmeeeeeeee-ooooooo. in which case, I'll be dissapointed.
anyway, I've put it off till I get home, and then I'll find out.

haha at a a point, I was standing with the grooms father, and a couple of the groomsmen. One produced a nice bottle of whiskey. Not thinking that most of the seated guests could see me, I took a large draught as the bottle was passed.
oh......the expressions on some of the crowds faces was priceless.........BBWWHAAHAHAA

and then, just as the ceremony was to begin, I had a quick "give and take" with the DJ:

DJ, walks up with microphone, as big as an ice cream cone, while I'm holding notes:
"here, hold this close to your mouth while you speak"

me:
"fuck you" if you want it used, you hold it"

DJ:
well, people need to hear you"

me: " I can speak pretty loud and clear, so..........unless you can clip something on, no"

DJ: "but, you need to"

me" "fuck off"

DF, looking down: oh......this is on"........

I look up, again, to a half horrified, half hysterical laughter, crowd.

Yeah, graidawg, the name needs to be easy to pronounce/understand over the radio, and not easily confused with someone else's call sign.

I'd start with Graidawg (you might want to mention it'd be pronounced 'gray dog'), then add to it from there (I think there's a two syllable min). What about Glazer? Sort of a bastardization of glazier (the kind of work you do, if I remember correctly), mixed up with the word laser (which is always awesome, in my book).... or Glazer Brain (I think laser brain was an insulting term Leia called Han Solo in Empire Strikes Back, and let's face it, Han's pretty badass). Admittedly, I need more caffeine.. fortunately there are some other great ideas above me :)

OMG the wedding sounded awesome and hilarious, Ygmir! Congrats and kudos and all that. I'm incredibly bummed about not getting to see you and everyone else this weekend, instead of prepping gear for the trip I'm prepping notes and demos for weekend morning meetings... :evil:

Nice to see you around, LCN! I hope your summer, and playa preps, are coming along nicely.

Shame you didn't live a little further north, Elorrum, we could have used a foghorn on our street a little earlier. Woke up to thick soupy stuff outside the window.

Dammit AntiM, you went and woke poor Mike. That guy never seems to get any rest :)

one of the things they say for ranger names is its not allowed to be your defaultia name. bizarrely there are people over here who call me graidawg or GD. lazer brain would be funny -but i bet someone has something similar already. like you said lazer is to cool not to have been taken, same goes for pirate, which would work as pirate ranger (if you can do it that way round, like danger ranger)


I would of loved to have been at that wedding yggi. although i may well have died from laughing to much.

Ask for what you want! :) The worst they can say is "no". Even then, it won't be an arbitrary "no" that hurts your feelings or insults your taste, it'll be a practical no--someone has it, or the sounds are too hard to hear.

And that's why they ask you for 5 ideas. List them in order of preference. If they're ALL taken, it's back to the drawing board; no big deal.

I have no actually knowledge of the matter but I am guessing they mean no default names as in they don't want to to ask to be called Graham.

Too bad Hof is so far from San Diego, I would love to be there.

On the good news side I finally got my Tr7 out of the shop, few more minor things and I can start actually driving it again :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
