Hi Burgers,

Continuing our series of Cheez twosomes, we have the first half of a two-week Featured Couple, OldGrayWhistletester! This user had me at his profile name, but he is also a creative and thoughtful user with zenful looking garden that I’m certain has catered to many napping kittehs.

We’d love to hear the story behind your username!
My username? Okay. When Benny Hill was on PBS; he did a spoof of a British rock show called ‘Old Gray Whistle Test.’ His spoof was called ‘Old Gray Whistletester’. I selected it as I thought no one would discover the origin, and it sort of fit my quirky-essence-ness. And then the avatar seemed to fit also. Sorry about the length. Most of my friends just put OG or OGW.

How long have you been a member of the Cheezburger community and what made you want to join?
I think I have been a member for 2 years. Actually, MsAnna talked me into it; she said it was addictive. She was right! After making some LOLz, I got ‘hooked’.

What do you look for in a Cheez friend, and what’s the best way to make a new friend?
I look for what we have in common from their profile, the LOLz they create, the common friends we share. That is how to make a new friend.

What is your favorite site on Cheezburger and why?
My favorite site is LOLcats. My friends are there from everywhere. And knowing that I can chat with them; get to know them, what is
happening in their lives, their families. We are like one big extended family.


What is it about Cheezburger that makes you happy?
I find happiness in the fact that the people on LOLcats are people that I can call ‘friends’.

Tell us something super interesting about yourself–an embarrassing story, a quirky habit, something that will make us laugh!
Something interesting category: I was adopted at the age of 7; along with my 2 older sisters. We were in/out of foster homes for almost 2 years; finally becoming residents in a children’s home. It was in a December; close to Christmas, that we came to live with our new parents. It was the best Christmas of my life!

If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be? Cheezburgers?
A breakfast consisting of French Toast and nothing else.

What else do you like to do when you’re not on the Internet?
I enjoy reading and tending my 24’diameter flower garden.


Where do you often find inspiration for your LOLs?
Just about anywhere.


Do you have any favorite vacation spots? Is there somewhere you’ve never been that you’d like to go?
I don’t have any favorite vacation spots; however, I would love to go to Israel.

If you had a million dollars, what would you do with it?
I would use it to buy a new home.

Do you have any animal companions, or have you had any in the past? What is special about them?
We have had several cats that we have lost. And have several that reside with us now. Some are the sons and daughters of those we have lost; and some we have found over the years, each with their own personalities that make them special to us.

Any good stories to share concerning being a Cheez couple? Maybe some lolwars?
We have created some LOLz together; and when one or the other takes credit for it, and it becomes popular or is on the FP at sometime, then it is time to remind the other just WHO helped who create it.


Right OGW, right on. Stay tuned for part two with MsAnna next week!

Happy weekend everyone,
