Subject: RE: BS: Why did you choose your nickname?
See You Jimmy, well Jimmy is a very popular name in the Glasgow area of Scotland, so much so that when people address a stranger or someone whose name they dont know, they just refer to them as " Jimmy ". ie Haw (Hey) Jimmy have you got the time, or Haw Jimmy where's the bus station, or Haw Jimmy geeza swiggathebuck - ( a very popular wine in the West of Scotland ). Billy Connolly and Russ Abbot made the Phrase " see you Jimmy ", popular in their comedy sketches and hence cujimmy, I sometimes use " Jimmy the Moonlight ", ( gimme the moonlight ) as in the song but cujimmy here.
