A rat by any other name would smell as.. um.. nevermind. [Mar. 18th, 2004|07:32 pm]
[Current Mood |listlesslistless]

I'm bored, headachy, and not in the mood to think... sounds like LJ-meme time to me! So here's the name meme instead of a real entry:

If you call me Adam, you're one of most non-furries or several furries I know.
If you call me a-Dam, you're my manager at work with the cool Parisian accent.
If you call me Adam Riggs, you're evidently making a formal introduction at a banquet and I'll need to quickly figure out what I'm doing there.
If you call me Mr. Riggs, you're a telemarketer or my longtime* barber, Tim.
If you call me Nicodemus, you're either a furry, one of a few non-furry friends, or someone telling me my order is ready.
If you call me Mr. O'Diemus, you're someone who wrote the name down wrong when I gave the order.
If you call me Nic, you're probably a furry I know pretty well.
If you call me Nico, you're probably Flint. (He can somehow roll the "o" and make it sound cool.)
If you call me Mawhrin, you're from my old roleplaying group and are, for some reason, still in character.
If you call me Dr. F, you're probably on the MFT3000 film crew.
If you call me Charley, you've dialed the wrong number.
If you call me Neddie or Mrs. Smoker, you're 3catsjackson engaging me in odd comedy bits.
If you call me love, you're my wife or about to be slapped.

Did I leave anyone out?

* Since birth. Really.

Who calls you 'Nico-san', for example? :>

If you dont address Nic by name, make him take off his headphones only to spout some incoherent babble at him as you wander the halls aimlessly looking lost, you're probably the well dressed marketing/sales guy who somehow found himself employed in an engineering function in the next cube down from Nic.

I was trying to remember if anyone called me "rat" or "ratty", but I couldn't recall.

"Ratty butt", though, is right out.

Trey pointed out to me that you can email to anyone at nicodemus dot org, and have it reach you, but then you disabled the random username feature, so "easypeasylemonsqueezy" didn't find you. Ra... er... darn. :)

I've been known to call you "the cutest rat I know" from time to time, mostly while talking to your lovely wife. :)

Yeah, I used to have tons of fun coming up with a new name for each message I sent to the wildcard email domain: thatguyintheratsuit, sploogiemonkey, cogitoergosum, flamingiguanas, electricboogaloo, cheerleadercamp, stonecoldcodpiece, lickablegravy, toastynonsequitur, dudewheresmyrat, etc...
My mail program got very cross with me for doing this, and was very relieved when the wildcard went away.

Yeah, I was bummed when I had to disable that feature (due to spam bounce messages). I think my favorite was 'embarassedtoaster'. :)

Hey there. Sorry I forgot to call you back yesterday. I put the track up online at http://www.critter.net/~croc/misc/ATC - Around The World (Club Mix).mp3. Minus the last period, of course. Let me know when you've got it and I'll take it down.
