|This page has been "under construction"
for so long that my sister Julie
has decided to write something "about me". So here it is!
Tom Lee is my brother. I have known him since I was one year
old. He is the 'middle child' of three. I am his elder sister. Joseph is
his younger brother.
Here are my uncensored impressions of him. I hope he will
place these comments on his 'About Me' page because there is nothing else on it right now.
Tom is highly intelligent. His computer skills are
self-taught. They must be. I don't remember teaching him. And he's never
had formal tuition. He knows how to get into the chat rooms, run EXCEL and create
web pages with Netscape Composer.
But he doesn't brag about it. He would probably say
"That's no big deal. Anybody can do that." Well, it's a big deal to
me. I did not know how to connect to the internet until Tom explained it to
me. There's a time to be humble and there's also a time to feel proud of your own
Tom has the most relaxed and easygoing personality in our
family. He uses his computer for pleasure. He's got a network of cyber friends
with whom he chats and exchanges jokes. He listens patiently as his friends tell him
of their pain and sorrow.
I admire his patience and sensitivity. Tom never seems to be
in a hurry. He does not rush himself or anyone else. That's a welcome quality
in today's age of instant gratification.
When our grandmother died in 1996, Tom wept. I admired his
show of emotion. At the time he was not pleased about weeping because no one else
was doing it. Our family teaches men to be 'strong'. For me, strength is about
being in touch with yourself. Especially your emotions. A strong man
cries. A weak man can't face himself.
As we all know by now, Tom loves rugby league and his favourite team
is the Bulldogs. Tom started supporting the
club when the Bulldogs were known as the Berries and all the clubs were based in
Sydney. He lives nearby their home ground at Belmore. He attends every home
game with his gold pass and reserve seat. And he monitors the other games via TV and
Tom has put hundreds of hours into building and maintaining this web
site. He deserves to be very proud of it. Tom pays a lot of attention to
detail and aesthetics. He understands the finer points of presentation and
layout. Tom does not tolerate spelling mistakes, mixed fonts or cluttered
screens. He is a good designer.
Tom runs the NRL tipping competition for his work colleagues.
It's an enormous commitment on his part. Every week he collates the selections of
over 20 colleagues and processes them manually on Sunday afternoon when the games are
completed. On Monday morning his work colleagues know where they stand in the
competition. He does not collect a fee for this service. He does it because he

|Well after I posted this, I asked my cyber-friend Sassy Cajun to read it.
Then I came up with the idea that I would let other people tell you all "about
me". So here is Sassy's description.
can I say about the person that has been my lifeguard in this sea called, "The
Tom, is one of the first people I spoke with when I logged onto the
'net. We have known each other via the 'net for almost a year now.. Time sure
Tom, has saved my butt more times than Id like to
remember.. He has helped me to understand things about the 'net that I had no idea
Tom, is the one who did my homepage for me.. What
patience! He in now in the process of teaching me how to do it myself.. Oh,
the times I have screwed up. I have never met a man with so much patience.
Hed say, Thats okay, well just start over.
Tom, has a passion for Rugby League Football.. He speaks of
this often in the Chit
I worry about him at times because he so generous with his offer to
help me.. I worry that he doesnt get enough sleep. We have worked many
hours together and he would refuse to go to bed until I had gotten at least part of what
he was helping me with right.. to you my friend, I salute you for the fine person
He has a love for his friends unlike many men I know.. As the
matter of fact, I met Tom in the Chit Chat room on
MGH.. He was there because a friend of ours has RSD.. He was there to give
support for this friend.. That is the kind of person, Tom is...
To, you Tom, I give you my heart.. You stole that a long time ago,
when you learned all there is about me and you never once turned your back.. I also
give you my undying respect..
I love you my friend..
|This was sent to me from Simon, a friend from the Chit Chat room.
You and I don't talk much, but I have observed you for about
two years now. I don't recall ever hearing anything negative or offensive coming
from you. I have however heard many instances of friendship and support. I find that
|Frank (Faust) is a 41 year old chappie from
Melbourne, Australia, and is a regular in Chit-Chat room.
I've known Tommy (MisterFixit) Lee for about 4 months now, I
suppose. I met him in Chit Chat, where
he is a friendly, funny guy, whose enthusiam for sport, and his passion for Rugby League -
go theDogs - is very obvious. His tolerance of
Australian Rules Football is to be applauded (Go the Blues).
I didn't know, until I found my way to his home page that he is a
master page builder and a walking encyclopaedia of Rugby League. What a guy!!
When I mentioned that I would like to create a page for myself,
Tommy immediately offered to help. My affair turned out very simple - adequate to my
needs, if Tommy had not been on-line at the end of ICQ and asking had I started, had I
looked at this and that, I'm not sure I would have touched a keystroke.
Maybe that's not such a big deal, but, for this old rhymer it was an
old, old desire to put my stuff together.
Tommy, web magician, Rugby League afficianodo, all-round great guy, you are
also a fulfiller of people's small dreams.
|December is a woman I had a
relationship with in 1999 and even though things didn't work out as we
wished, we remain good friends :) Here's what she wrote about me. She
doesn't think I'll publish it LMAO.
I would like to add to your 'more about me' page.
Tom is a very patient and generous man...he pays me
every time he
wants sex...and is only selfish in bed when I am not being selfish enuff.
Tom is also a great help for ppl on computers, even tho I know more
about computers and web page design than he does...he often offers to help and advise me,
regardless of the fact that i know more.
Tom is also a very keen rugby league fanatic, and a
mad supporter of Melbourne Storm. In fact, he drinks his VB beer from a Storm
stubbie holder! He went to a Storm vs Manly game in Sydney recently, and started the
day by wearing a Storm shirt.....what a guy! Oh, he also seems to like the doggies,
tho not sure why! :)
Tom is also the king of understatement, and feeling
that he knows is what is going to happen. For example, one time he said to me....don't
answer the phone because it will be my Mum. Well, it wasn't his mum who called, it was his
flatmate trying to reach me, and was mad coz I didn't answer the phone. :)
But Tom never told me that his Mum would turn up out of the blue and
let herself into the apartment.
Tom also doesn't believe in omens or portents or
signs. He believes in neither fate or destiny, yet is a firm believer that sex with me was
meant to be.
I agree with him.
Tom also claims to be a 'nice guy' even tho I know a few men on the
net who dispute this, although that could be because Tom gets sex with me, and they don't.
