Mine is "Pasta' is greater than Cruelty."



Note- ' denotes accent.

Sky-lark. Not skah-lark or scare-lark or scar-like or sky-lar. (These didn't happen on VB. I use "Skylark" 80% of the time offline, too, and people get confused at times.)

Q: How many poets does it take to change a light bulb? A: 1001...one to change the bulb, 1000 to say it's already been done.

even though it gets messed up a lot, all you have to do is look at my username and realize it isn't porDIVA, or PROvida.

it's Por Vida. for life.



Poor-Veeda.

I still think of "shagginabit" as pronounced "shag-nabbit!" (like "dag-nabbit!")



mine is: ān'jƏl ǒv dăns just in case you were confused.

Err, I'm not sure how to pronounce mine. I think something like misk (rhymes with disk) and you can just drop the numbers. Or to make things easier, Michelle is just fine and dandy.

That's what I thought when I first saw Shag's nick, and I still can't get that thought out of my head, Dag Nabbit!

Pronounce mine with really really deep o's. It's not about the frogs! It's about the 'fro!





Oh... uh.... sorry, I am okay now.





Personally, I pronounce "Pasta>Cruelty" like "Pasta over Cruelty", though technically that would be "Pasta/Cruelty", which then we would think was "Pasta slash Cruelty" or "Pasta Cruelty".... well, yeah.

And here I thought your username was properly pronounced "Michael".

Gee, that's an odd thing to say. Do you really think I'm Michael's alter ego?

Joe is the silent passive mastermind, and Micheal does all the dirty work.

I've herd it pronounced "Locky" though. I post on forums for my local music scene with the name Loki, and the DJ at a local club keeps calling me "Locky"

Not like "Serena".

We see the world as "we" are, not as "it" is; because it is the "I" behind the "eye" that does the seeing.

thăl'-ya. I think the Greeks pronounced it differently (thal I ah ?)and the Hispanic pop star pronounces it thal EE ah. So I suspect people have been saying my name in their heads differently from how I say it in my head.

Well, the stress is on the first vowel, the second vowel should almost be a schwa (where's the IPA font when you need it). The 'ay' sound is thus reduced to something more like 'ahj'. That's how I've always thought about it, anyway.



'FÃ*n-luhy', not 'Fin-lay'.
