    New Name?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Okay, so when I first registered on CS - not having joined any other forum at the time - I just grabbed the first name I could think of, which happened to be the name that Pete uses all the time.

    Problem is, Pete belongs to about 10 other forums, all registered under his username of Hoyks, and now his cohorts are stalking me and blackmailing me in an effort to nefariously steal my grinder, otherwise theyll dob me in on Pete and all the wicked things I say about him.

    ;D ;D ;D

    (Hi Trenski!)

    So, Ive decided Im a big girl now and need to get my own identity (and that way I can post whatever I like about Pete and get away with it!!! [smiley=evil.gif])

    So the names Im contemplating are:-

    • Dippy Di
    • Di-Chotomy


    They are all I can think of off the top of my head...a real brain freeze on today!

    Anyone got anything else they can think of that might trump those two because Im very open to suggestions? You all know my sense of humour, so I dont mind something slightly left of centre, as long as its not rude (sorry AM! ;) )

    Cheers
    Di

    Im sure there are more than two sides to your personality.

    How about Di-orama? Three dimensional, and for the purposes of education and/or entertainment. :)

    Re: New Name?

    Damn, I like all of those suggestions! Youre not meant to make it harder for me!

    Would go for

    Diabolical Di-Caffeinated Coffee2Di4 in Diorama!

    Nah, a bit long...

    Right-ho - Coffee2Di4 it is (which, I must say, is 100% better than Petes suggestion of "Di-Arrear" >:( )

    Naming rights go to young Flynn, thank you very much!

    :-*

    Cheers

    That probably leaves me with the honour of sending the last PM for the CS user formally known as Hoyks 8-)

    Welcome in the new guard "Coffee2Di4"

    ur welcome. Did I mention copyright fees? ;)

    My only concern with the suggestion is that it creates a promise you will now have to live up to.

    However looking at what you have in your sig line, I dont think there will be any problems delivering on that.

    Re: New Name?

    Yep, Ive amassed some serious equipment in the past six months (shhhh, dont tell Pete - "why this old thing? *Honey, Ive had this in the cupboard for years!!!" *;) ) *I just have to learn how to use it all properly now...

    No living up to the name, necessarily, KK - Coffee2Di4 may denote that youll die if you drink my coffee because its so bad! *8-)

    Re Copyright Fees - happy to send you a bag of freshly roasted GeneCafed coffee if you PM me through your address to send it to: Im after any excuse to put the new baby to work and also slightly reduce the quantity of greens before we move...its good fun using this newfangled equipment!!!

    Re: New Name?

    Maybe you should change it to "Di-Fibriillator Blend", Den! *Mmmmm, I wonder how one "fibrillates" - sounds a bit naughty... *[smiley=evil.gif]

    Rather apt that its on your bags, considering its been one of my all-time favourite commercial roasts, Den, along with the World Blend - Im very happy to be associated with such quality!

    Thanks for the kind offer Di but with around 100kg of my own to consume I might decline - or defer, if I land in Qld one day coffee-less

    Good name, Di. Was thinking Di-abolical or Dilicious but I think Flynn is a rightful winner.

    We changed our name a week after signing up because people were getting the wrong idea. Too many people saying ;) or :-* or even just :-[.

    But when we finally got our CS card the other week, there was the original name in all its glory: Coffeelust!

    This thread has been a good read.
    When I started reading this morning I was disappointed Id missed out contributing a suggestion, because I was out to dinner last night with my wife celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary.

    Flynns a clever boy and I really like the C2D4 abbreviation too.

    Hmmm, interesting point. BeanBay can only see the original name which can sometimes be a little confusing.

    Oh well.
