Default the bluff is a real bluff

i used to live near Scottsbluff, Nebraska, and I always have a special place in my heart for that area. The name "bluffer" might sound like I am being facetious or insincere, but in fact I honestly love the land formation of the bluffs, formed by erosion. That is why my avatar is a little photo of one of them.

Default a gift to myself

Choosing a user name was an opportunity to give myself a name that no one else would give me. Perhaps that might be childish, but I like it. When I was a child, I never made it into the "Gifted and Talented" classes, but on this website, no one objects to calling me "Gifted" do you?

This is a fun thread.
My dad's name was Monte (pronounced Monty), so it's an awesome name to me too! I always smile when I see your posts

You're absolutely "Gifted!" What did those teachers know anyway?

Born in the 50's, I loved watching the TV comedies of the 60's. I tried one TV comedy name which was taken. Oddcouple was my second attempt, this one successful. Obviously it's an homage to Jack Klugman and Tony Randall.

Netflix and/or Hulu. Stuff that isn't available on DVD is sometimes on YouTube. The episodes are off old VCR recordings and usually split in several pieces, but you do get to see the show - and very old commercials! Gotta love the internet!

I'm a person who likes to laugh at myself, and so my moniker is meant to be a humorous jab at me and my profession. I'm a mortician. Of all the errant preconceptions that people have about my line of work (and there are many), the preconceptions that are really the most "out there" are usually those regarding embalming. And so, in acknowledgment of the very funny things I've heard from folks about what they think I do in the embalming room, I chose to be a vampire, and because I remember runnning home from school in the 1960s just so I could catch the last 5 minutes of Dark Shadows I went with the name Barnabas.
