    I always thought a rabid chicken was kind of ironic. Can you imagine a chicken frothing at the beak pecking people to death? The avatar is Arabic for "infidel", which I am proud to be.

    My first name is Santiago.

    My dad's job takes him through the rural parts of Quebec and he totes around a digital camera I got him for Christmas. He's taken a lot of cool pics of the things he sees and the pic of the truck is one of my favourite.

    UW Madison alumni. Plus, the image looks good against the empty whiteness of the BF page. And it's the right size. And I like it. And stuff.

    I never see your wife post. I think you're posting as your wife.

    Someone (I think Stromcrow) posted a link to a questionnaire site that determines what classical composer (or dead Russian, I can't remember which) you are most like. Mine came up as Dimitri Shostakovich, and damn if I don't look like him too. My Avatar is from one of his albums.

    username: Cuda2k has been my email address since, you guessed it, around 2000. Barracuda has been a nickname of mine since before then.

    Avatar: haven't changed mine in a while, it's the headbadge of my Gazelle Champion Mondial. I also have the headbadge img that's on my other steel bike, a custom painted bike I call the Barracuda Mk.I

    Because I really do ride over this bridge on my laps and starting my distance rides. Plus, it's a great bridge- a real engineering marvel in its day (Petit thru-truss, for you engineering types). And, the view of the river from the deck is just stunning, especially at sunset.

    I was quite involved all throughout high school where I took leading positions like being captain of my track team and leading/directing school retreats. There was one retreat my senior year where I was director and one of my best friends started to call me "Ms. Gio" for, I guess, she wanted to show me respect. *shrug* Since then, it kinda stuck. From time to time she and some other friends call me that.

    I chose my avatar to show that I rode a bike. Also, my avatar changes monthly. Jschen has given me the name "Avatar Princess" due to how many times I've changed it.
