I see you guys going on here day after day and I get this mental image... a skinny Kid with very tall hair, Wash drinking his way across France; Shlong and Ringo not giving enough for an impression. Are you all still students? Give me some real info.

Well i guess this is me. Im older than kid, Schlong and Wash, but not by much but enough to be classsed older i guess. I'm still a student but not for much longer, i guess i'll have to find a job in the real world and get out of the student bubble.
I don't know schlong that well but i do know him. Kid and wash i know very well but don't see them as often as i may like with us being spread out over the country/different countrys. Same goes for skiddy and GOAU, but i see them a little more often as they go to uni/work not that far from me.
For the past 3 years ive been studying pharmacology ,an interesting subject but i will never work in a lab, much too dull and repitive for me.
Thats me in a nutshell.

|Tommie, If by any chance it wasn't already clear... you rock! How you can sum up two people you've never actually met with such an accurate brief, i've no idea. Kid, indeed, is the skinny kid of the group, and yes, normally has very tall hair. I am indeed drinking my way accross France, it can be put in no other way. Recently been partying in Nantes, Lyon and Montpellier, but I try to make the effort wherever I go. I'm not much less skinny than Kid, but am less tall, so its less evident. I'm happily still a student, and would like it that way forever. Last year's my last year of my degree, but i hope to study another year in Spain after that. We'll see. This year i'm teaching English in a French high school, like a year out of my studies, though its compulsary for my degree. I will hopefully spend the summer learning Spanish in Barcelona. Oh, I'm a language student by the way. Spot on, Tommie. Top marks. Muchos respectos.|

Spot on, I'm skinny - I think I'm less thin than other people reckon, but I am tall, so it does show well. I've never been a prescriber to the 'I need a hairstyle' sect, so it grows, then I shave it, then it grows, then I shave it, and so on.
I'm in Norwich, earth's finest city, studying for my BA in Linguistics, but this means little in the current 50% of people will get a degree drive through which we are living, so I will stay on, hopefully, to study for an MA.
What after that? I'll see where the wind takes me, and if it dumps me in the sea, I'll be less than happy.

|OK. I live on the Alabama (USA) Gulf coast and I work for a company that computerizes hospitals. I have a nice tattoo collection and have never been to prison.|

I live in Austin located in central Texas. I was born in San Antonio and was raised alongside wild cattle, sheep and Mustangs. It was an experiment in character development said mother recently. All kidding aside, I was the recipient of extremely high amplitude electroshock therapy sessions as a child and the process, besides being horrific torture, had a positive impact on my reasoning and cognitive abilities to the surprise of the sadistic doctors and the electric company.
Ok,ok,ok...for real now. Raised & schooled through 12th grade in San Antonio. Youngest of 9. Attended the University in Austin (you know the one, begins with a capital t) Handed a Bachelor of Science degree one day, thought to myself "That was easy, why not stick around for more fun & learning". 3 years later received another fancy document which confirmed I'm some sort of Master in a field of engineering where electric current is channeled through silicon and resisted and transisted all over the tiny little place.
Work for an Austin company that designs the equipment that makes the equipment that allows for those wonderfully useful positive ions to travel even more places and do more fun things with the numbers 0 and 1.
I have 2 dogs, both Corgis. A girlfriend of 4 months who's the sexiest nerd I've ever dated and who illustrates childrens books, designs web art and is quite good with watercolor paints. I travel in my field of work. Mostly quick stops in Asian countries where silicon chips are manufactured. Then to designer chip architect companies in Europe and a few cities in the US. Why, I've even been to England where some brilliant engineers happen to reside. Watch out for those German cats, they have some smarty pants I've met in Dresden (of all places) and they are gut yahh.

|I hail from Northern California, where I went to high school with our four-lettered host. For the past ten years I have lived in New York City, though I spent the mid-1980s in Italy. I work for a Big Publishing Company; you student types may well have used some of my textbooks in your computer science courses. I like word games, art history, and travel. I'm really not that big a fan of "I Love Lucy" as all that, but the names of the principals fit the character frequency on WormNerd, which is skewed by its basis on overall usage of letters in English, and not on their appearance at the beginnings of words. I was right chuffed to meet Tommie and Dot last year on their trip to New York -- they are one cool couple, always ready for adventure, but with those gracious manners of the old south. They still haven't convinced me to get any tattoos, though.|

Sadly (I say that) none of us are computer science students. And we generally tend to look down on them where I go to uni. Not coz what they do is toilet, just because, as a people, they are twats! However, our views over here in England of people who work in the production of their textbooks is generally of a high standard, basically based on our knowledge of you, Amelia. Anything that keeps the computer science people inside their homes is something to regard highly.
If any of you are computer science people, or aspire to be one(Lude?), what i said is just a generalisation of a few pricks who I know at uni, all of who study the aforementioned subject. There are always exceptions.
Ha - can't sue me now, can yoU!

I am boring! boring! boring! or, as a friend once put it:
"... not boring -- consistent." I am California born-and-raised and prefer warmer climates. I have, at present, no particular skills or talents. I DO seem to have an innate
sense for the Library Sciences... so my happiest jobs have naturally been working in libraries! I especially liked
working in the Technical Processing/Info. Management Dept.
Left-brain jobs rule! I reside in the California desert
area of Palm Springs and am here for now. I LOVE coffee! and was (interestingly) voted "Customer of the Month" by my local hang-out. I took a picture with the manager and there
is my picture for all to see. I believe this is called: small celebrity... I enjoy expressing myself here with all you Taters as we seem to have the same sense of humor --
keen minds think alike!

After an oh too short birthday call to Wash (Happy Birthday dude) i was convinced to come and tell my story for you good people. I'm Mirfield born-and-raised and was schooled in the finest that Batley could offer. Am currently reaching the end of my time at uni, which is both a sad and cheerful time. Sad: I'll miss my friends, alcohol and many beautiful ladies. Cheerful: I fell me and education have just about run our course, so will have to move in the real world of alcohol and beautiful ladies that aren't as easily concentrated around one spot. What the future holds, i know not yet but looking forward to finding out.Hopefully some kind of career in writing, an interest i've had for years and which come out occasionally (Wash!,Ringo*, remember FLOPSTARS). I grew up with Ringo*, Wash! and Goau, and Kid was a welcome addition to my life about 5 years ago. I love you guys. Met Schlong once, I think. I think that about covers it without too much details.
NIB HIGH FOOTBALL RULES!

|Voice... who are you? We're awaiting your bio!|
|Re: Bios by JohnnyG on 2003-04-21 15:07:03 | Reply to this|
Will somebody please contribute a Bio/Autobio of a person either real or fictional by which the reading of it will make me and others laugh loudly, even if one happens to be in a solemnly quiet place such as a library where loud outbursts can cause your arrest, at least in Texas anyway.
If I really enjoy it I'll return the favor by writing about puritanical sexual practices in a Baptist community located outside the Austin city limits.
