Gyropyge ??
In case you haven't already noticed, the web apparently has a name shortage. Tonight I "had to" open a Yahoo mail account. Long story why I had to. I tried all my previous email address names first. They were all spoken for. Of course, Yahoo is huge so this ought not surprise me.

So then I tried using words. All the words I could think of were taken.

So now you are thinking "Ok Dummy, pull out an encyclopaedia". Cate sent me a recent issue of her "word of the day" subscription. The word was "dasypygal" (da-si-PYE-gul) an adjective meaning "Having hairy buttocks"

TAKEN! (??)

I read on: [From Greek dasy- (hairy, dense) + pyge (buttocks).]
A related word is dasymeter, an instrument for measuring the..., no, not that, rather the density of gases.
Another related word is callipygian, having a beautiful behind.

So I try "callipygian", I mean hey, I've even been told I have a beautiful behind. No really!

TAKEN!! (???)

Now I'm getting annoyed. I'm thinking, if names are so tight people are borrowing Greek words, I'm in trouble. So it dawns on me, I'M NOT GREEK. I have no greek blood at all. Mostly German, some swiss and some Romanian Jew. Germans are great at hyphenating words... but I don't want a hyphen in my email address, that can get confusing.

So as of tonight I have an alternative email address.

Gyropyge@Yahoo.com That's me, the guy with the gyrating buttocks! Seems nobody else wanted that. Of course if you are greek that could appear to be a strange meat sandwich made from my buttocks. Lets hope not!
