    I post under a nickname because my real name is funny to English speakers and I don't want everyone to laugh at me.

    Worse they could steal your complete collection of Andrea Bocelli CDs and DVDs.

    Yes, I know, but at least it's for better reasons than my name.

    Pretty much the same for me. In my very early working days, everyone called me Annie. I hated it at the time, now I look back on those days with a great deal of affection. D is the first initial of my surname and I liked Annied (pronounced in my head even if it isn't in any one else's, Annie D), better than Annd. I use it everywhere, sometimes with added numbers when Annied has already been taken.

    You mean you could satisfy a crazed Dittersdorf fan? Surely, you are just boasting?

    He uses the name Enthusiast to remind himself which of his multiple personalities is active here. Sadly, though, the others have got hold of his password and post under his adopted name as well (as I am doing now and as happened in the post above).

    I couldn't satisfy anyone, my épée doesn't work anymore.

    Ditters von Dittersdorf actually has multiple concerti for double bass. He also has multiple concerti for viola. He even topped this off with one concerto for double bass, viola and orchestra. Clearly, one can see why Carl Ditters von Dittersdorf CDs would be a popular target for thieves!

    It should be said that I do know someone in town whose classical CD collection was burglarized many years ago. I don't know if they had any Ditters von Dittersdorf CDs. Maybe they were optimistic that he did. In reality, the burglars probably didn't realize the CDs they were stealing were classical CDs.

    I don't have any Andrea Bocelli CDs or DVDs, but I did date an Italian woman who loved Andrea Bocelli. I even had a couple Bocelli tracks loaded on a very early and primitive digital media player I had many years ago that I would play for her. There was one Bocelli song in particular that she had to hear anytime we went anywhere in my car.

    It has come to my attention that there is a series of recent Estonian comedy movies called Klassikokkutulek. Coincidence?
