    I have a friend who will only refer to me as Yuki. I think it's because I remind her of Yuki from Fruits Basket . . . then again, it could just be because I'm cold-hearted.

    (Yuki means "snow.")

    I know a kid who hasn't had a haircut in a while. I just call him Oyama this one time because he reminds me of this character.

    That proberly hase to do whit respect and manners, you can only refer to someone by there nickname if he/she is your friend.
    If you refer to someone nickname and you aren,t a friend of that person is be offending, even if the person dosn,t mind.
    If you want to cal a person by there nickname you need the person aprovel.
    For exemple Dragon Ball if i where to call you DB without asking you it would be offending,first of all i don't now you and i also didn't ask.
    But if i ask you , can i call you DB and you say yes i can call you DB if you say no i won,t call you DB.

    Jaru Ri doesn't mean anything. Furthermore, please do not post in dead threads. See point 8 at http://www.animeonline.net/faq.php?f...faq_faqposting.
