Sadly I was something far less flattering...the skin that covers the tip of the male member. I guess Forster is a little close to f***skin? Pretty sad nickname though...This was only in my Junior House fortunately. Ah the trials and tribulations of CH life before the gals!

One of my (thankfully short-lived) nicknames was Lester - why?
Because you liked plenty of food?

(Lester) PIGgott?

Was EA right with Derek btw? That would have been my guess.
Yes, Lester Piggott, but nothing to do with food. You have to work it out from Underwood...

No, Derek was never a nickname. It was far too nice...

'Jockey' is the keyword here, but not Grenville...

Mine were sock..............my initials are soc so there is originality for you!
I had another one in the hockey fraternity...............the cat beacuse I was the 1st XI keeper.
I always wished that I had a more original nickname but there it is.

When I worked for a large logistics firm supplying Rover cars I got the nickname of Pavarotti. For a year I thought it was due to being overweight but it seems that it was actually because of a rather tuneful botty burp after a particularly enjoyable curry one night. I was the only supplier to earn a nickname from Rover staff.

In Burnley I am known as either big fella by the Asian community or the mad Londoner by everyone else

Hi Andy how are you and yours?
Mine tribe are fine, the youngest, Natasha, has just started school (4 years old) and loving it. My wife turned around to me and asked if we could send Tash to CH. If I win the pools then maybe!
Why do I get the feeling that Spurs are going down this season?

We are all fine (touchwood) thanks. I've missed Charlton's last two home games visiting university open days with my "baby"
which makes me feel my age!

Spurs will be ok if they play to Darren Bent. As he demonstrated over two seasons with us he will get 15-20 Premiership goals in a poor side. Mind you I didn't expect Hull to win yesterday I must admit.
