K...just trying a different area of this whole forum thingy...mostly 'cuz after all the WONDERFUL replies pertaining to the proper method to track my virgin purchase, within the next 12-13 hours, I hope to become a bona-fide member of the Vapor4Life family...Then perhaps...we may create an "avatar" (WTF???)...K...maybe I'll just upload some type of propic...and then give my nickname a nickname (which did not come from my own brain, but from a reply I received upon one of my initial posts).
BTW...Did any of you guys realize that Santa Claus (Clause), commonly referred to as St. Nicholas, aka, St. Nick, albeit Greek in origin (which has no bearing on this pursuit of trivial nonsense), in some small way led to the use of alternate monikers which we now refer to as "nicknames"...
Yeah...I'm not so sure of that either, but it sure sounded good...which leads us all back to the whole Greek thingy again...Ichthys Fyshk...hence :fish:
Welcome to the family fishy! :beers: I play texas hold em online with a bunch of people on my PS3. One of them is named "Fishy" heh, first thing that comes to my mind when I see your name. :) ... seems a bit fishy around here. :fish::fish::fish:
:doh:Oh, GEEZ...thinkin' I just might like bein a member o' this "family", "O CLLD" one...if'n I may be so bold...:fish:
Feel free to post anywhere you like Fish :) If you don't like that nickname I can address you as something else. Although if it doesn't pertain to your forum name I can't promise I'll remember it :o I have a terrible memory when it comes to names.
And :lol: Thanks for the lesson on nicknames. I was never allowed to have a nickname when I was a kid. My parents gave me a name and they wanted me to go by that. Although they gave me an extremely difficult name to spell and pronounce so I've adopted a nickname in my adult years. It came in especially handy for my in-laws (in Meridian) who were not able to even almost pronounce my name.
& just outta curiousity sake...ahhh, nevermind...I come from a place where almost everybody's name ended in "eaux"...just sayin'...:fish:
Meridian, MS. Unless you are asking where in Meridian, I don't know much about the area, I've only been there a couple times to visit.
And lol! DH is from NOLA, so he helps me with those kinds of names.
:headbang:Crap...now I gotta keep pace on 3 different threads...was born in NOLA...adopted shortly after birth...spent what I guess are those prepubescent years in Jackson, MS...but never lost my Cajun/Creole yearnings, seaux...:fish:

I'm born and raised Texan, near Galveston island. Although my grandpa is from Franklin, LA so I have lots of Cajun family. DH is from NOLA but his mom is from Meridian. He lived in Jackson for a bit, but was in NOLA in 2005 and ended up in Houston. His dad still lives in LA and I love going to visit. I'll actually be out there on a business trip in June although I don't think I'll have time to stop by. We haven't been to MS in a few years, it's a 9 hour drive from here.
Traffic...traffic...traffic...the one thing I actually miss about not living in a large metropolis...the traffic...at least in the city, there's always another way around...what I have around here isn't "traffic jams", but "tractor jams"...and there just ain't no way around those (theauxse)!!!
But...as funny as this sounds, out of all the times I've spent in LA, you seem to be from that one part of TX that I have never had the opportunity to spend that much time in...like they used to say..."go west, young man..." So I did...and as luck would have it, all things must come full circle...:fish:
Ugh!! I don't think I could ever miss traffic! Sure there are other ways around, but for the million people stuck in traffic there are another million trying to go around. No matter which way you go there's not a quick way, maybe a quicker way, but that just means an hour instead of an hour and a half.
I wouldn't recommend spending time in that part of TX, nothing to do, nothing to see. Unless you like island life of course. It was never for me. I'm happy right here in the big city :D
