  • What image do you get from people's usernames and avatars?

    Thought this might be a laugh as I just read the thread where Darren didn't realise kazboot was a woman. I didn't think kazboot was a woman either! Meanwhile I keep seeing Richard Wilson when Richard1978 posts a comment (because of the smiley aerial avatar from one foot in the grave) and I'm convinced that stuckinthe80s does actually look like the 1980's Morrissey.

    Anyone else created their own visions of fellow doyourememberers?

    I found Herr Grunwald a bit intimidating to begin with but he's quite a nice chap really. *ducks

    Huggie - sorry Heather but the name Huggie just reminds me of Starsky & Hutch (Huggy Bear)

    Quite a few folk I'm not sure about gender but I don't think it matters really.

    I wish I'd picked a more interesting username now lol

    I'll have to add more to this thread but my chicken balti is a work in progress atm so I'd better get back to it!

      Yeah Herr Grunwald is a U-boat commander stalking about the forums looking scary (I know he's not like that really)

                  I reckon Herr Grunwald looks like Mr. Bronson off of 'Grange Hill'!

                  (thankyouverymuch - AufPet / Grange Hill fans will understand that!)

                  I notice there's someone called Retro Ghoul, and that immediately makes me think of a cartoon white sheeted Scooby Doo character, and if it wasn't for those meddling kids......etc.

                    retro ghoul makes me think of someone who loves old computer consoles and other retro stuff.
                    herr grunwald makes me think of someone who is covered in hair from top to bottom.

                          I think I write like a bloke, and the avatar might lead folk down the wrong path, but no. 100% shoe loving female!

                            This entry made me think of an old TV program where (maybe Sylvester McCoy) shouts "Grunderhunter hunt" and some shaggy bucking bronco tries to throw a contestant off - What was that?

                            Can you guess what my real name is? It's not hard!
