What's the significance of your EF name?

I first started using EF as a tool for job hunting and work permit questions.

M. Ploymi = employ me (if it wasn't already obvious)

I thought I'd only make a couple of posts so I only spend 1.2 seconds thinking up my user name.

Mine doesn't have much significance, related to cycling in that I ride a titanium bike, sometimes on a turbo trainer, and a 10 mile time trial is a popular event in the UK - TT10.

Re: What's the significance of your EF name?

After the 17th victim crumpled in my sights and I walked away into the silence of the night, my heart beating slightly faster and the acrid smell of cordite hanging like a cloud of redemption in the air, I felt that this was a better way to spend my days than enduring the eight to five rat race with commuters huddled together in unwilling closeness on the S-Bahn.

Aaah, I love it. Despite of not being nerd, me thinks, and trying to convince myself to eat one (raspberry with sugar icing)..

In fact, we should have more food nicks, n'est pas? People with food nicks are always cool.

I've never illegally immigrated, neither to CH nor to the USA, but that's what we called back there in my little town in Mexico to anyone going to work abroad.
