Legal Alien: A Scotsman in Montreal

Another nickname!

Doug reminded me of another fleeting pseudonym I had for a brief period...

Animal: It was New Year and Doug's friends from Aberdeen had all come down and they had a penchant for nicknames: there was Takia, Cookie, Puff Dragon and so on. I met them for the first ime and I was wearing an Animal jumper/sweater, and was instantly christened Animal. And it lasted all night. "Animal, Grrrr!" "Don't upset the Animal! He'll get mad!" It was kinda funny really. Except when I met them all again some 10 months later, they remembered and kept it going! I think it's just about died away now though.... we'll see.
