Still Hoodman, although not as much as it was 6 years ago. Now it's just Hood.

I only get called Hoodie on here

Hooch.

It stems from my first day at my first proper job. Was wearing a bright orange shirt and that it bears some similarity to my surname they decided to name me after an Alcopop and it stuck.

Duracell was the most popular (unoriginal) one at school.....  

None since other than my name shortened.

I was thinking you may have had some computer-based nickname punnery going on.

Or was that after your time?

when I lived in Manchester for a year (96/97) I spent a night growling (anyone else remember Breaker Lager?) and so it stuck. I now have the Ursa sobriquet in my email addy.
I am rather cuddly though....

I was discussing the alcopop with someone four or five years younger than me the other day, but they had no idea what I was talking about - does it still exist?

Dunno if it's still around now. I remember that was all I wanted to drink when I was 16. That and Bud Ice... I tried some Bud Ice a year or two back and it was like being a teenager again. It was horrible. (The memory, not the drink.) (Thought that too.)

It kinda proves that maybe there was something in the whole "it's marketed at kids" thing.

It's a different class of kids these days. I was talking to the 15 yr old daughter of a friend who said that she didn't drink really, but was partial to a G&T. A different class of kids, I tell ya.

You offered a fifteen year old girl a drink and she said she liked G&T? siiiiick.

No, we were talking. At coffee. AT CHURCH. And in passing conversation alcohol was mentioned.

Also, you youths with your hip lingo, I assume your use of "siiiick" means you somehow approve of offering underage girls alcoholic beverages, of which you thought I was guilty. Which, I'll be frank, disgusts me, Rhubarb. I am shocked. Shocked and appalled.

Well, not that shocked.

Seducing at church, tut tut tut. I wouldn't reccomend calling her a youth with hip lingo though.

I know, I was just saying you know, I wouldn't use that as a pick up line in general, if that's how you view people younger than yourself.

WELL, QUITE.

There was, I have to add, a certain irony in my use of the ridiculously outmoded expression "hip lingo"... I don't, contrary to popular opinion, actually talk like that seriously.

Anyway, NICKNAMES, INNIT.
