    I don't think I mentioned it but my avatar is of my Basset Hound Fred III.
    He was born on April 10, 2015 and came to live with me on June 4, 2015.
    He's a real good boy and I am proud to be his dad.;)

    I was really hungry when I signed up to the forums and I'm from London originally. Hank Marvin, as well as being the guitarist for The Shadows is Cockney rhyming slang for starving

    Got in the habit of choosing a different one for each new account.
    To come up with the ideas, I just look around my room. Had an old copy of Mrs. Doubtfire on VHS lying around :rolleyes:

    Tosko is a derivative from Tosco (Portuguese for clumsy). I used to be very clumsy in the past, that changed but the nickname stayed :)

    Tonto ( Spanish for stupid ) was my first attempt at a username, but I forgot the password and my email address had changed
    so I couldn't fix it, so I started again with TontoII, but that came out Tonto11, so here I am, living proof of my username.
    I used to use actor Jay Silverheels portrait (Tonto from The Lone Ranger TV program) , but I figured someone might be offended , so I changed it to a gif showing what I do most of the time
    it doesn't animate on the new board, but if you click it

    ...T

    I like the colour pink, I had Pale Moon open at the time I made my username, and the start of my Discord tag is 89 (I also like that number in general).

    Also, my avatar is an original character by Kushida You, she's really cute ^.^
