Variola - I hope you don't mind me asking but I am curious as I have an interest in the things - why have you named yourself after the smallpox virus?

No course not you ask away. I have used Variola for a whle now, mainly because I have a interest in viruses, and I was stuck for a sign in name for a site a while back. Variola popped into my head and seemed perfect.
Plus most of my friends feel I should be locked away where I can do no harm to people anyway!! :oD

Yup I noticed that was his field. My chosen career, if I get that far is in virology/immunology.

Hello Pox

I have found a picture of this old reprobate. As he is a very ancient creature, he was depicted in Roman wall mosaics.



He was known as Pan, Puck and by many other names. Now it is "Mountfitchett" -  Did you know this means "mountain of the polecat?" It refers to the fitch or the European polecat.

Now "Joy" is just a wonderful name with no smelly "after-effects."

Is he the one holding the basket with the man-boobs? Or the one with the unfortunate unkempt and rapidly growing pubic hair spreading down his legs?

Indeed I have heard of Pan in reference to being the God of the Shepards.
Mountfitchett is not a name I would like to try and say when I am a little squiffy..

I'll grant you that. Of course, being a student you must spend a lot of time being squiffy.

Ugh! no it doesn't agree with me. I haven't as yet touched the wine either. I feel almost virtuous.  [:I]

Ah, my student days - I could get a gallon of Gallo Chianti for 99 cents. What a horrible drunk that was!

And Joy, as previously discussed, came originally from France's Lunguedoc region and came in with the Romans to south Wales. It was NOT a girly name. It was and is a warrior name. Quite unlike "polecat mountain."

I feel almost virtuous.  [:I]




EASE UP - she did say "almost." No had she posted just "virtuous," that wouldn't have been true since she was probably about 13 or 14.
