War is God's way of teaching
Bravo!!! *wild applause* I love clever ideas!!!
Hello, Live Journal! I've missed you! Y'know sometimes I get so focused on you that I lose track of everything else until it becomes a crisis that forces me away from you. So then I swear off of you for a bit, but now I'm back, and it's sublime! Writing is truly a catharsis for me, and writing here is the best catharsis of all.
Not that I have anything very substantial to write about. Although we are doing this very funny joke on one of our co-workers. He (Avi) seems to think Jason's name is actually 'James'. Both Avi and 'James' have been working here 2 years apiece, at least. So it's very funny that Avi gets someone's name wrong who he's been working with for 2 years!! Not to mention the fact that EVERYBODY'S name and picture (taken from our ID cards) is posted on the second floor in the glass case that I like to refer to as the 'Wall of Shame'.
So now we're slightly changing EVERYONE'S names, because it's just funny. And because we generally love making fun of Avi, because he's so full of himself -- and he's a big boy, so that's saying something! -- and he thinks he's so clever (he's not). Sometimes he can be a real pain in the ass, so he deserves a little harmless fun.
Ben is now 'Dan', Tom is 'Tim', Brendon is 'Brandon', Storm is now 'Typhoon', which is the most ridiculous of them all! But my favorite name-change is what I've been dubbed: Sonya! That pleases me to no end, because that reminds me of one of the cleverest people I know, throw_away_game. :) It is an honor to be 'named' after someone I've grown to like so much, someone I met right here on LJ.
And now, I have to go leave her a comment about it. :) So, as they say in England, 'Cheerio'! Until next time...
P.S. My boyfriend is introducing me to the wonderful world of gaming. Because how can I properly call myself a 'geekgirl' -- by ANY name! -- if I don't play video games? And I'm told FreeCell doesn't count. So if anyone has any suggestions as to how I can better prepare myself so I can impress my boyfriend, feel free to share. I am as rookie as they come, but I'm intrigued, and I bet my good friend throw_away_game can give me some pointers. I desperately need to get up to speed on this.
