Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

i am slowly growing out of a predilection for highwaters. also, you know, you don't want your pants getting caught in the chain, so i roll 'em up nice and high when i ride. and sometimes i smoke, but that came later.

Pun on my family name (Farkas) and my long hair (pony tail=lófarok). A 6 year-old kid called me this name once and I use it on the net everywhere coz it's weird enuf to be available in every forum, email provider etc. Even on yahoo...

(Only trouble is that it can be understood as "the one with a big dick"... Once I got a nekkid pic of an unknpwn 15 yo girl by email. She must have chatted with a dude with a similar address. She was a hot little *****, though, so that was ok. But the really ugly 40ish woman who also remembered an address wrong... And sent very explicit pics... That was gross.)

I am a chimbley, a chimbley sweep
No bed to lie, no shoes to hold my feet
Upon the rooftops in dead of night
You’ll hear me cry, I’ll shake you from your sleep

To hear me weep
"Your day will come indeed
For I am a poor and a wretched boy
A chimbley chimbley sweep."

I am an orphan, an orphan boy
I’ve known no love, I’ve seen no mother’s joy
A dirty doorstep my cradle laid
My fortune's made: I’ll shake you from your sleep

To hear me weep
"Your day will come indeed.
For I am a poor and a wretched boy
A chimbley chimbley sweep."

"O lonely urchin!" the widow cried
"I’ve not been swept since the day my husband died."
Her cheeks a blushing, her legs laid bare
And shipwrecked there I’ll shake you from your sleep

To hear me weep
"Your day will come indeed.
For I am a poor and a wretched boy
A chimbley chimbley sweep.
For I am a poor and a wretched boy
A chimbley chimbley sweep."

sikanna = dragon, storm in ainu language.
i'm 1/4 ainu. ainu has this tradition of giving very crappy name to children so that evil spirit will be disgusted (and therefore will not steal children). my childname is Shon Peszt (not sure of exact spelling?) meaning "little ****". but around when i was 2 or 3, my grandfather started calling me "sikanna" because that's the year i was born in and whenever i left a room, it ended up looking like a storm had just passed through. my grandfather passed away when i was 4, before i reached the adult age to be given the proper ainu name by him, so his relatives decided to name me "sikanna".

and no that's not the name on my birth certificate.

Fatty Lumpkin is not, in fact, a descriptive term for my appearance. No, it's the name of Tom Bombadil's pony in lord of the rings.

tlupfer = "tim lupfer". i use it on the internet because it would be so absurd to call me "tlupfer" that people are forced to call me by my first name. i think it's funny when i'm around people who use internet handles in conversation. over on the road forums someone called "the patriot" was talking about a conversation that he had with his wife. in his dialogue he had her calling him "the patriot". it made me laugh to think of the various domestic situations where she might be calling out for the patriot to take out the trash or make dinner.
