Huia

Huia Report 17 Jun 2008 22:22

I didnt pick my name when I first joined, it was my real name. On other websites I had to choose a name so chose extinctoldcrow because the Huia (a NZ bird now extinct) was a member of the wattled crow family and my OH calls me 'the old crow'. He also calls me 'tub' but I refuse to answer to that name. I am just well built. I have seen people much bigger than I am.
Huia.

Mine is because that is who I am and where I am from, BUT if I ever get to a meet I want you all to pick another name for me my OH says mine is boring since he has seen all your names.

Sparrow you think yours is bad mine calls me "Tishy
Wet Legs" !!!
and no it isn't because I have p**d myself, its just something he came up with, you can see why I don't let him out much by himself can't you
