'cos I have no imagination and I live in the UK and because its what I use almost everywhere else too and I can't remember much as my brain is full of the same useless stuff that Orangina suffers from so my initial and my surname and country at least reminds me who and where I am.  I have stump jumper too but its been so long since I've been on it I can't recall which one,  I also worked in the forces for a short time and have a motorbike but have not sold windows or gas or been born in the 50s.

I'm not very good in the mornings, and my wife calls me Grizzly Bear(especially when I have a couple of days stubble), she then became Babber Bear(I'm Bristolian, what can I say my lover!) When we we're in Newquay on a week end several years ago, I won an Incrediable Hulk cuddle toy from one of those grabbing machines, he became the maskot of the T4 I had at the time and we called him Hulkiebear!

He got transferred to the T5 and so I go by the Name Hulkiebear on the internet.

Oh god, don't tell my wife I told you all that!

Mr H
I think it is "pop a cap in his ass"
banging in the ass is something different

Yes I do know what you mean - and you're right. But I was a 'nice' honest person with integrity and not a pushy salesman who'd sell his disabled granny - that's why I only stuck it for 9 weeks...

I'm a Project Mangler for CSC (The IT company with the really good bike team), though in the trade we're known as Cowboy Selling Computer... Yee-Harrrr!

As for the name, when not at work and doing work trips to the pub on a friday, I'm the taxi service for my children, their friends, their families etc...

They all bundle in with all the clobber and still there's room!

Biggest laugh was a group of teenagers singing "The wheels on the bus" on the way home from the school disco/ rave.

I was only referring to your ability to recall word perfect an advert from the late 80's and my ability to recognise it as such.

I'm trying to erase such disturbing memories from my mind - roll on senility

We all remember ted moult, but can anyone remember where the building in the advert was? I seem to think it was touted as the highest pub in england.

Yes, it was the Tan Hill Inn i believe, and the bloke who turned the big fan on for Ted in the adverts was called 'Reg'

I'm Happy Yellow because:

My yellow T5 looks so ridiculous people often smile when they see it!

Actually, I decided upon Happy Yellow before I saw the happy faces, but it seems to have worked out

I live in a country full of thugs and bandits driving around in black Mercs, BMWs, Audis and Jeeps - lots of Maffia, and even if you're not Maffia, it's fashionable to looks as if you are - so it's nice to be different.

Freeley cos of the amount of people that mishear my surname when signing in etc when working in different places (it's BRAYLEY for chrissakes!). In particular one doddery old security guard who kept calling me it all day much to the amusement of my mate who i was working with.

You had to be there really.

I first joined a couple of kitesurfing forums and "North Wind" seemed like a reasonable pick. Now I stick to it to keep my life easy.

North Wind

PS Conversion seems going well. Damplifier sound-proofing fitted and hot and cold water tanks going on tomorrow. Plenty of small problems coming up (today, the iPod integration cable turns out to be too short to fit between glove box and head unit) but it will all be worthwhile in the end. Can't wait.

What do I need to say about mine?

Remember the VW advert with the people from Alabama and the 'alien' sighting.  "It was like a vee, vee durbya".

To all those going on about birth years, mine was '82 (snigger snigger).
