Ummm........No,I don't work at a 7-11!!!!
Never have.

No,I don't work at a Marathon service station! Nor for their corporate office.
never have.

I don't work a 11-7 shift PERIOD!
Never have.
I have run a few mini-marathons for charity

my username is a double entendre.

Ex girlfriend said I think I'm some super hero because I jump to the defense of others regardless of where and who so she gave me the name.It rounds off an approximate measurement and has something to do with endurance.........in the bedroom. Because I run for charities she thought few would catch on to the those implications.After we broke up, I used it online because she is an internet junky,to say "here 's what ya been missing".Now it doesn't matter but I have mailboxes and profiles with the name the11x7marathonman and the variation here: marathonman11x7 Too much trouble to delete and change now,so I'll keep them.

"Komet155" comes from my car's nickname (komet also means shooting star in German) and 155 is because the car is a Volkswagen Cabriolet which is a "type 155" chassis vehicle.
this was also the designation for a Hilfskreuzer or raider from WW1.
BTW my nickname uses the Japanese term for metamorphosis/change/evolution and my profession. I'm more sedentary now but, in my misspent youth I worked as a freelance writer for a wire service. I saw a fair amount of excitement and once I didn't duck fast enough in Somalia-I couldn't sit down for 2 weeks.

It was the other way around, Kurosawa's film was first. but an excellent film to see is Blood on The Sun starring James Cagney as a newspaper reporter in pre-war Tokyo.

1 fish, 2 fish, red fish blue fish just came to me, most likely because it is silly and fun. Life is too serious most of the time anyways - so why not try to interject a little humor and let the inner child out?!

(It is also the best Dr. Suess book in the world - and the kids in my class would read it every day if they could.....besides...sounds much better than green eggs and ham! )

Maybe ya'll can help me with mine. Google won't do you any good, though. I took Old English Lit in school, and in the glossary at the back of a reference book lent to me by one of my professors, the word wergund was defined as "protector". Years later, I returned the book to my esteemed professor (I don't think I should put her name on the net,don't even know if she's still alive.) And now I can't find a reference to it Anywhere! Have tried old Germanic, Norwegian, the gamut...if anybody can help me substantiate the claim that my name means protector, I'll buy you a beer or maybe even two. Help Wergund!

If the shoe fits, wear it! Serendipitee in a nutshell: good luck in making unexpected and fortunate discoveries; the art of discovering something unexpected while searching for something else entirely; happy chance, blessing, destiny, synchronicity, karma, providence, coincidence, accident, kismet, fate, disclosure, happenstance, opportunity, treasure trove, whatever comes, windfall. Do you feel serendipitous today?

My name came about from a series of events:

First by grabbing silverware throwing it up into the air and rhyming part of my name to the sounds which spoons and forks make when hitting the wood floor.

The next thing was to listen to the sound of a barking dog and incorporate that somehow into my name.

Went up to a panhandler and asked him to draw one of three names from my baseball cap.

And finally used rejected birth name ideas which my mom was about to give me. (bless her heart).
