Re: Whats Your Name Mean?

I'm MissPisces because I'm into astrology a bit, and I'm a pisces. My personality pretty much fits the description that most books ascribe to pisces! Besides that, I love fish and Greek art. Combine fish and Greek, and you get "pisces"!

Creatures great and small, I love 'em all! But mainly the fish.

Re: Whats Your Name Mean?

several years ago in my college fraternity days, someone dubbed me "el Zack" the name stuck for a while then i was cooking at a dinner party and my then girlfriend said the food was "zackalicious" and her friend said that it was "because it was cooked by El Chef" and that name stuck too. so did zackalicious, much to my dismay. i occasionally throw in the number "194" which my fraternity scroll number.

fish tanks are art. they represent the imagination of their owner, and one's desire to create something beautiful that enriches its environment.

Me too, well one of them, came 2nd in my class lastnight racing a Tamiya Mini, I prefer the nitro's though and currently have about 8. are you familiar with the Schumacher Fusion? stupid thing does 80mph out the box or you can gear it for about 100mph... well if you can keep it in a straight line that long




Back on topic

Mk1's of the Golf variety (Rabbits if you're on the other side of the pond) be my true passion, currently on my 4th which has undergone many a modification in the past 10 years of ownership, most noteably the 16v conversion which turned it into a bit of a tyre shredder

Thinking about it, why do I always get into such addictive hobbies, I can see a lot tanks appearing if I'm not too careful

70L Juwel Rekord - 1x Male Betta (Mr Fishy), 1x Black Venezuelan Cory & 1x Albino Cory (Ying & Yang) 1xJulii Cory (Julli) 1x Oto Catfish 1x African Dwarf Frog (no name yet) 9x Copper Harlequins (Chips, they go great with most fish)
Natural stone gravel, BiOrb FengShui pebbles, bit of bogwood & lots of plants.

25L Guppy tank

Re: Whats Your Name Mean?

My name comes from a childhood memory. As a little girl living on a farm I took great delight collecting frogs eggs and hatching them and letting them go when they turned into frogs. Often we would see red water mites and my brother and I thought they were special, we were always on the lookout for who would see the first Red Bug (as we called them.) I still delight in the memory of the sun shining through the water and spotting those bright red little dots meandering through the green weed. Each fish I keep somehow has the magic of the little red water mites.

Re: Whats Your Name Mean?

Hi!

I got my name as for many years i have been a bit of a photographer as a hobby, using film mainly. Since then Lomography as it is known has become fashion and i have since moved into street photography and into site photography as an archaeologist. But, these are an example of my analogue film hobby work



and



No iPhone trickery there!

If anyone wants to see my street work feel free to head over to Flickr: Matthew 'B' Thomas' Photostream and have a look.




Be a shark...

My name is and has been my nickname, my musical name and my overall persona since before I can remember. Nothing fancy, I think it was originated from the movie Friday. Ha ha.

Re: Whats Your Name Mean?

Welok is a family name, though knowing my family, it is something derogatory. My other family nickname is Brat, or Uncle Brat... Welok (pronounced Vel-Och) was dubbed by my grandfather, whose parents migrated to America from Czechoslovakia. Never been able to find anything about it, other than a restaurant in HI, and a fictional character in a book named Welock. The restaurant in HI might be the closest missing link, as my Grandfather was also stationed in the Pacific Islands during WW2... But going back to it, Welok is the name I use most online, followed by EatMoreCrawdads, which wouldn't have been appropriate for the forum (especially since I'm doing everything I can right now to save one of my 4, as she molted and 2 others tried to eat her about 20 minutes ago...)
Summer and big b like this.
