    Actually, that's not true...he just sounds differently than I imagined. I know that because he phoned me today. He emailed me saying he was going to but didn't specify a day or time.

    It was sort of like when I actually met Phoenix. I looked right at him, even having seen his photo and still wasn't sure it was him. Reality is just so different than forum-land.

    Freddy is brighter and more energetic than you'd imagine. I don't mean "brighter" as in he sounds smarter than he posts. I mean "brighter" as in more energetic and enthusiastic. Sure, by the tone of his posts, you know he's passionate, but the way that comes out as sound is reallly different.

    Just thought I'd share. :wink:

    After reading that last paragraph, I'm not too sure what I think of your analysis.... :D

    Sorry if I didn't express myself well. It was my last post before heading off to bed and I was pretty tired. I'm swilling coffee now trying to wake up.

    Trip,

    No offense taken, or meant. "Different" is just one of those words that can have a myriad of meanings..... :)

    He meant that you didn't sound like an MS-hater... :twisted:

    Sorry, bro... couldn't resist! :biggrin heeheehee

    I've probably met and talked with well over a hundred people I originally met online. I'd love to talk to (or meet) some of you guys someday!

    Oh good grief, I just realized. You live in Tennessee. Your accent must be *fabulous*. :biggrin

    You'd be surprised how little southern accent I have, though I was born and raised here. I was a "city kid", and learned a lot through TV. ;)

    Trip,

    I just realized what "accent" you're talking about. It comes from a cautionary tale about the partying life.

    Back when I was just a year or so out of high school I had eaten a whole lot of mescaline on day and went to the park to watch the colors and hallucinations. A couple of gals I knew found out how high I was and decided to have a little fun at my expense. They sat there and kept saying, over and over again, "I got a nickel, and a dime, but I ain't got no quatah" with a very strong southern drawl. I was so high that day that I ended up with a trace of a southern drawl ever afterwards.

    So, beware, all you young bucks out there that like to party. It can have lasting side effects and someday someone may just tell you your voice is "different".... :D :juggle :lolbang

    To tell the truth, Trip, I find the whole thing pretty funny....

    It's good to put a face to the name or a sound to the words eh!?8)

    I expect we all build up a picture of what a member sounds or looks like!

    Not that I think Freddy looks like a clown (Well not anymore):biggrin :p

    I wanted to say that it sounded like you were from the south but I wasn't sure how you'd take it (assuming you actually weren't from the south). I've never experience people in Washington having accents but there are supposed to be some regional accents in Idaho so you never know.

    I just figured that anyone living in the west would have the traditional American "non-accent". :wink:

    Yeah, well, my wife tells me I have a couple of them. I grew up talking to a lot of Finns(all my relatives) who spoke Finnish and lived in the Upper Pennisula of Michigan, and my wife says that sometimes she can hear that in me too. That Finn-glish accent is pretty distincitive, and you can't miss it when you hear it. You KNOW where that person is from.

    Michael doesn't have an accent that I could pick up on. He sounds as educated as he is. I on the other hand sound like I live on top of a mountain somewhere stuck back in the hills with a bunch of hillbillies. :ohmy Oh wait, I do! :biggrin
