    Daniel and Jason are cool - one an Argonaut, another a Biblical hero :cool: Nick is alright lol. Why not call a son Daniel?

    I nearly ended up as Vicky, now that is a lot more frightening, since I am a guy :p But my Mum and Dad wanted a daughter, instead they got us. Lucky them lol.

    All three brothers were named after Apostles in my family, I think the greek version of "Timothy" means "friend of Paul". It doesn't always work out that way lol, on ocassion.

    Unlike Mustafar, I don't look like a Simon which is quite unfortunate :p

    Did you know I didn't learn to swin until I was in my twenties, and I had a real fear of water as a child. I think it stemmed from the fact that I nearly drowned when I was about 3. I was sitting beside the neighbours pool, when I fell in, and no one noticed for a few seconds, so I was walking around the bottom of the pool before I saw my fathers arm reach in and grab me. I was scared to go near a pool (or even put my head completely under water!) for many, many, years after that until I went to Ayia Napa in 2000, and saw everyone in the pool enjoying themselves, and I figured "Bugger it!", and threw myself in. So, basically, I tought myself to swim! :)

    I'm still not the best swimmer in the world, but at least I have a go.

    In 1986, Pope John Paul II did an Australian tour, and had a church service for thousands of Perth people at Belmont Park (which is a racecourse). I'm a Ukrainian Catholic (both sets of my grandparents were born in Ukraine, but my parents were born in Perth), and one one family was going to be lucky enough to get their Holy Communion from the Pope. The criteria was, that the family had two kids, one boy and one girl of communion age. There was only two families that had one boy and one, mine being one of them. My grandma was really great friends with the priest at the time, so my family was chosen. I was only 7 at the time, and had just had my First Holy Communion. I was in all the papers after getting my Holy Communion from the Pope.

    I'm much prefer shedding the trousers and gadding about in a netball skirt and heels I bought on the 'net.

    Moderately sure that is an unknown fact.

    A: I Swim like a fish and given the option I would have gills installed to run alongside my lungs.

    B: Used to race Mountain Bikes when I was younger. My mates still think me insane now when I mention that I'm off looking for a big hill to ride down, they think it's suicidal (one of the rides a race prepared Suzuki though :confused: )

    C: Lived with Girlfriend for 7 years hace a 1 1/2 yrs old child so I think I'm OK there.








    Sorry :)

    I will NEVER EVER set foot on a ship, ferry or anykind of sea liner EVER.
    I have a real phobia about them.
    It is also a struggle to get me on a plane, but last time ALOT of Jack Daniels subdued me enough to get me to Cyprus and home again.

    Boats = Fun

    Sitting on the back of a motorbike whilst someone else rides it = *Shivers*
