'Ow do


Graeme Harvey

Hello from Stourport-on-Severn

Please call me Grez. I got lumbered with an unusual spelling of my first name (that I never liked anyway) and no middle name, so I'm stuck with it. When you're on the phone and someone asks you your name, there's nothing worse than having twenty years of this conversation...

Caller: What's your name, sir?
GH: Harvey
Caller: And your first name?
GH: Graeme... that's spelled G-R-A-E-M-E
Caller: So where do I put the 'H', sir?
GH: There isn't an H. It's G-R-A-E-M-E
Caller: Oh that's very unusual

and so on. Why didn't they call me Sam?

Anyway, I'm new here. I'll post a couple of pics when I get time. I'm not averse to a bit of constructive criticism here and there. I just hope I don't get torn off a strip for bits of jiggery-pokery with Serif Photoplus and the GIMP.

I was invited to join by Hamish, so it's all his fault. ;) Thanks for having me. :D
them:"Hi is that Hammish Jill"... (hammish, like ham)
me:"no, its Hamish Gill"
them:"or sorry sir"
me:"yeah, its not sir either"

me:"hi can i order a taxi please"
them:"yes, whats the name"
them:"ok gill, where from?"
me:"no, thats my surname"
them:"oh right, are you indian"
them:"oh, i thought gill was an indian name"
..... etc

me:"hi, im hamish"
them:"oh you must be scottish"
them:"no you dont sound scottish"
me:"thats because im not"

to be fair though, if i hadnt have been adopted i would have been called Paul Truckle and that is far to similar to Paul chuckle for me to have survived high school! (and actualy since i found my adopted mom it turns out i am a bit scottish, but its far to difficult to explain)
