This frivolous thread went sideways with emotions and stuff. Original guess as to what I was before I became Skort: 

A skirt and suit fashion ensemble, pronounced as a .portmanteau?

A small Namibian boat, pronounced something like ‘skoyt’ [censored] Elon Musk. 

A deliberately bad transliteration of the word for crazy in Khmer: sh-goot?

A play on the words ‘skew-it?

Some or all of the above?

 

 

Couldn't have been the first (though 'skuit' did become 'skort'...); the word 'fashion' gave it away.

@Sir Why You Littleis paying homage to the Warner Brothers Cartoons i grew up watching (and still watch today!) I decided to Knight myself a few years ago, when Tony Abbott was throwing them around Willy Nilly 

Still cannot believe that Abbott was Actually The Australian Prime Minister for a period of time. Sends shivers down my spine!!

I think you're derailing this thread.

I always read @goodwindees as Goodwin Dees up until about a week ago. Guessing it’s a little play on words or nothing to do with Simon at all now. 

Reckon yours was a good get; you must have been quick(*)? Like the owner of the DEES21 numberplates.

Neither of those, EO.

Lyrics from a band called Mercury Rev (their name belies their music; they produce the sweetest songs not unlike The Flaming Lips). Also because I have a problem with indecision and oftentimes feel like it’s me fighting me,  hence civil war. 😁

Wow. There’s a band I haven’t thought of for a while. My old band toured with them back in 2001.

The infinity of the internet delivers again: on a slow Sunday (though I am just about to head off to my own very, very modest band practice...) I've just checked MR's 2001 very-much-world tour schedule. Impressive, Mel! And supports my earlier DL 'rich tapestry' observation 😀

This is such a mind-bending post. Did you just third person yourself? And 'why you little' I think most people would assume is a Simpsons' reference. I have a five-hour layover in Thailand soon, I think we should meet and discuss (can you please distract 'you know who).

I always assumed it was paying homage to Homer Simpson!

We weren’t on the whole tour! Just the Aus shows. They were an interesting bunch. Not exactly what you’d call “down to earth”, but also not that difficult. Have got many a horror-story about touring with awful bands, but thankfully many more that have been great.

I think it was within 24 hours. There’s two of us floating around as @Nashermentioned. All good though, it’s only the best moment ever and all.
 

Here was me thinking Nasher was a big fan of my work knowing all my previous names before letting the cat out of the bag re. How to search for it.

HitchHikers Guide to The Galaxy

Embarrassed to admit I’ve not read it. I have a copy of it. Just haven’t got around to starting it yet. Gotta finish War and Peace first. Not joking. It’s a [censored] slog.

Unrelated: didn’t know one can knight oneself.

“Abstemious”???!!! Would love to know the meaning behind that and your current name, BBO.

Abstemious… one of my favourite words since it contains all the vowels and they’re in order. Same as my friend whose surname is Alexiou. 

As for @Bitter but optimistic, methinks it’s more a case of bitter and less so optimistic.😜

@Jaded No More  although she can sometimes still be a little jaded. I say that with affection. And I’m sure she would agree. 😘

I always thought Jaded was a person whose name was Jade D. I know she got married recently, so I just assumed she took Mr No More's name as hers.

She's actually one of my favourite posters with a nice mix of logic and passive aggressive (and sometimes downright aggressive, but never abusive) posts.

You didn’t watch Warner Brothers Cartoons?

At least 40 years before Homer and Monty

    WIZARD333'S TRAINING REPORT I went down and it was locked out for first hour but could see through fence then allowed in. Max Gawn ran laps — it looks like a 3 to 4 week injury.

Jake Lever on bike and walking up n down stairs, yelling out as he does. Melky copped a niggle so ran laps but

    TOUGH KENT'S TRAINING REPORT I journeyed out to Casey today and was fortunate enough to watch two quarters of match simulation. Here is a brief rundown of random occurrences/thoughts. First of all, there was no Jake Lever (ankle) or Joel Smith involved. AMW is still in rehab and was running strongly. It was Blue (Probables) v Red (Possibles) JvR was in blue. Ben Brown, T-Mac, Hibbo and Tom Sparrow were in red. Gus Brayshaw started at half back for blue and stayed there all game.

    DEE ZEPHYR'S TRAINING REPORT Morning all. First time at Goschs for a while, there’s a scoreboard set up which I’ve never seen here before. Possible match sim? Williams yelling out to players to get their hands off hips during drills. Gus looks fine to me. Absolutely., first two mins of match sim and his kicking is exquisite on both sides. He’s moving incredibly well.  Some observations from a match sim drill that lasted about 15-20 mins. The purpose se
