    Some people have dirty minds and deliberately interpret everything in a sexual context. I'm guessing something about the name, but I don't want to think too hard about it and don't really want to know the answer.

    "Bender" was also the cool guy in The Breakfast Club.

    Very fitting.

    Hi and welcome. You sound quite similar to me. Some differences on ispecifics and nterests as can be expected. Cooking/Food prep is one of those things I least enjoy in life. Given a choice I would rather do just about anything short of becoming an oar slave on an Roman galley. Ironic how life put me in recent years as the main cook/food prepper for wife and 4 Chihuahuas. Kids are grown and out now and I get to be homemaker of family V2.

    Thank you all again for the warm welcome!

    Regarding the name - I hope my comment wasn't inappropriate: "bender" is a slang term for gay man mostly in British English I think and in the past, I have been asked that question surprisingly often.

    Hi, unperson, may I ask if you used to have a WP account a long time ago? After joining I read through the archives there a lot and remember someone what this name making some very interesting posts.

    Thanks for the explanation. While I didn't find your comment remotely offensive, I did not understand the context, since in the US the word bender is related to drinking.

    Yep, that usage is also present in British English: so you can be a bender on a bender. :p
