Howdy. Greetings. Salutations. Que Paso? Que tal? Wzazzzup? Yo dude, slap me some skin.

Or just simply - hello, nice to meet you.

Ditto Leonard. :-)

I'm the annoying kid who hangs around commenting his friends and annoying him! :-) Nice to meet you.

The name's LeonardII, or if you want to be completely formal - you may call me LordLeonardII.

But I do appreciate the greeting.

Pleased to make your acquittance.

The name comes from my middle name - which you guessed correctly, the II is from my name being Jesse L. Miller, II - I was named after my grandfather who had the same name so he was Jesse L. Miller I (or I think they just say Jesse L. Miller).

Anyway, I used my middle name, along with my suffix to create my moniker. The Lord comes from gameing status. Because when I kick ass on the battle field - I make the losers bow down and swear fealty. Of course, they may be seeking cecret revenge, but either way - I get my title. :)

I'm also in the process of acquiring/procuring some land in England that comes with a Peerage title upon ownership. Which would indeed make me "Lord Miller" and my wife "Lady Miller." So there you have it.

*laugh* Lord and Lady Miller? Kool. :-D

Like with Goot I may think up a nick-name for you to annoy you with, but for the most part you'll probably get dubbed "Lord L" or something goofy like that. :-)

Long as it's all decently respectful I don't give a crap what you call me. :-) *shrug*

I don't know what the "521" represents in your moniker. A birthday perhaps - May 21? I could guess some more, but I have to run off for an appointment.

However - I will say that with your sharp tongue - "snapper" fits you quite well indeed.

Keep it. It's definitely you. ;)

Nick-names

*smile*

Yes, my mother dubbed me her snapping turtle or a snap dragon quite awhile ago. So I changed it just a little and called it Snapper. My birthday is indeed May 21st. :-) I really am not complicated... you just have to know how to read me.

Eric keeps dropping hints of the nickname being a bad one down in Texas, but what he means exactly he will never say. So until he does I shall not worry about it. :-)

My apologies for getting my sharp tongue right off the bat. Though oddly enough -- *thinking face* -- it doesn't seem to have "chased" you away from wanting to be friendly... This fact is encouraging, though I wonder WHY it hasn't chased you away...

Re: Nick-names

I have too much armor to penetrate before you can get into my "soft underbelly."

If I could only explain the life I have lived - you wouldn't believe me if I told you.

All I can say is that it has been very rough indeed. From growing up extremely poor, due to an army injury in 1992 that left me with two ruptured disks in my back since I was 21 - which left me 100% disabled by army standards since 2003, to having nearly lost my home, going through bankruptcy... and generally just a hard life.

So - I will admit, in some aspects I am very naive. In others - I am the master as I have seen evils that would terrorize and paralyze others.

Otherwise - I keep my persona happy and outgoing, jolly, gregarious, charming, and full of self control. But remember - the persona is how I want the world to see me... it is not my "true" inner self. There is a big difference which I hide from the rest of the world.

But by all means - please be yourself... and I enjoy sharp wit and a sharp toungue. Both are amusing and keep me smiling. :)

Re: Nick-names

Sharp tongues and whits: *pleased smile* Good! I have yet another person to "beat up on"! :-D Like I told Goot, I enjoy having friends to banter with, who I know are mature enough to handle the repulsive remarks I throw at them. ;-)

Soft underbelly: Meh. Spoken like an experienced shadow game player.

I am similar to you in the fact that I don't show much of my "true" self on here very often, however there will be times.

And -- as a forewarning: You, as my friend, will have to be deserning enough to understand that there WILL be times, when I am an emotional wreck and therefore am not stable enough to handle whatever jab or critical point of view you have to offer. Tomas has become quite good at it I think, he hasn't slipped up and whacked me up side the head because of his insensitivity for quite some time.

Your unbelievable life: My mentor, has had an unbelievable life. So, truly, it wouldn't take much of a stretch of the imagination to believe you. Besides the simple fact that what purpose would you have to lie to me? Therefore I must believe that you would tell the truth since it would serve no known purpose to lie. :-)

I have never been to the doctor for my back injury, but I have had one since I was 12. It was due to lifting things, which were twice my weight, and doing a man's job because the man who was supposed to do it, was lazy and made me do it.

My parents came so close to filing bankruptcy that we were literally living on pennies a day for two years.

Both things were caused by the same man. Tom H.

So I can most certainly relate to those portions of your life.

I have never nearly been put out on the street, since our house is owned by my great-grandma and she certainly wasn't going to throw us out because of missing the rent for 3 yrs... :-P

I can understand the persona. :-) I've had to "play a part" before, to hide how it truly is. Even though they came that close to bankruptcy, no one knew it except for our closest friends, family and the two people who helped us out from church.

I am always myself, just not TOTALLY myself. If I don't keep a portion of myself in who I "come off to be", then I end up in a tangled web of lies. :-) You can imagine.

I've never seen your countenance - so until then, nicknames will have to wait.

I need the view the whole person as well as read their posts to determine a good moniker that fits their persona.

Persona of course is nothing like the inner self - but we more readily share our persona than our true self. We don't get hurt that way...

But - send us a pic and I'll be so glad to raise you up a nickname... if you so desire.

Whats Countenance??

My Uncle has offered many a time to come up with a good nick-name for me. :-P

Go here -- thats what I look like (since I am unsure how to send you a picture normally... you're getting a link)
