Rat. A lot of folks I know call me that. I'm kinda long haired and scraggly. More of an appearance thing than personality.  

Cool please to meet you Rat
Oily. I call myself that because I'm in the awl bidniss.

Our band hosted an open mic for a couple of years, this one lady sang "House of the rising sun" if we played for her, but she never got my name right, a different one each week, till she settled on "Steve" (??) and it stuck, I was from then on Steve to her, and now it's a running gag in the band.

"Hiiiii Steeeeeeeve!!!"
Yep howdy Steve .

When my three grandkids, then my two kids, and even my wife all called me by Grandpa, it was a done deal. Very organic (but not like lettuce and such).

Very pleased to meet you Grandpa.
Greased to meet you Oily ;)


I was wearing a shirt... "I'm Pink, therefore, I'm Spam"  to a gaming place back in the 80's... I needed a call sign... It stuck...

Glad to meet you Spam.

bigmcgiv = big guy and a shorten of my last name McGivney
