I don't have anything funny to contribute, but I can tell you where to find pictures of Dave, Dave, and Liz.

Dave (the ancient mariner) has a photo under his screen name in the Mudcat Resources page. Liz the Squeak has pictures in the Lanstock event photos in the Mudcat resources page. Dave the Gnome is in the pictures of the Manchester gathering thread.

From: mousethief

My name comes from a character in a book, whom I admire even if I don't resemble him as closely as I'd like to:

Gonff the mousethief padded silently along the passage from the larder and storeroom of Kotir. He was a plump little creature, clad in a green jerkin with a broad buckled belt. He was a ducker and a weaver of life, a marvelous mimic, ballad writer, singer, and lockpick, and very jovial with it all. The woodlanders were immensely fond of the little thief. Gonff shrugged it all off, calling every creature his matey in imitation of the otters, whom he greatly admired. Chuckling quietly to himself, he drew the small dagger from his belt and cut off a wedge from the cheese he was carrying. Slung around his shoulder was a large flask of elderberry wine which he had also stolen from the larder. Gonff ate and drank, singing quietly to himself in a deep bass voice between mouthfuls of cheese and wine.

From: Tattie Bogle

Mine means "scarecrow", probably in a field of "Tatties" (Potatoes). A Bogle is also a ghost. But the name was one of those terms of endearment used by my Scottish mother when either my sister or I came in looking particularly dishevelled after playing outside! It was later adopted by my husband to call myself or either of our 2 kids "Bogues". So now you know! Taatie Bogle

Well, my eldest brother always addressed me as "Oi, madam" when I annoyed him..........

Actually, I used this name as it was what that brother wanted to christine me ( Lady Penelope Creighton Ward in full, Thunderbirds had just come out ) there was already a Penny on the list and I just thought I'd finally get some mileage out of it!

Partly yes, partly no. I am a lightly built person....hence, "Little". As for the "Hawk" part...I have terrible eyesight, so it doesn't work for that...but I have good connections with birds of prey in a spiritual sense, and have taken a falconry course at one time...so it does work there. I've always liked hawks.

When flattop refers to me as "Little Shit Hawk", he is using a common local expression for seagulls, "shit hawks". Very disrespectful!

Raptor - I thought yours was partly because of the Toronto basketball team...

a gargoyle is an ugly object that spouts foul water and other detritus into the gutter...not descriptive at all.

You know, Deckman, I've always wondered about what your name meant... Oddly, I never once thought 'Hey, maybe he builds decks.' :)
