    Joseph and Joe. Anyone calls me Joey and they regret it!

    There has being a worrying trend for certain people calling me Jose in work recently, long surname means the last 2 letters of my first name are cut off the caller display, not impressed!

    Close, Keri/Carrie. In my midwestern mouth, those are pronounced the same. But she still hears it.

    Been up since 5am. More tired than I've ever been.

    I spent $75 in The Strand bookstore, and ate at several amazing restaurants, so it was a success.

    My name is John and I'm always surprised at how many people misspell it ... It's one of the most common names

    I always wanted someone to incorporate my middle name into a cool nickname. Alexander. It’s a good name.

    Maxwell is my middle name. My first name is Barry. I pretty much answer to anything that ends in "arry".

    my surname is Conte, and in english speaking countries it gets mispronounced quite regularly.
    i's normally pronounced Kon-the.
    In Scotland I was called loudly through the airport intercoms as Mr "c.u.n.t.".
    (self corrections changes it to I've got a banana in my pocket, which is quite hilarious)
    it wasn't nice to walk to the helpdesk to answer that call....

    no mistaking the pronunciation of my first or last name, although people think I made it up sometimes. my mom typically uses mine in coffee shops because they never get hers right.

    My middle name is Mather. I'm still drunk from last night. My wife has this picture thing in our bedroom, it's made of rocks and is supposed to be an image of my wife, myself and our dog ...

    But every time I look at it all I see is two people and their dog standing on the body of a much larger person... Whose foot has fallen off.
    I defy you to unsee that.

    Went to Bengals game last night, so I'm sore, hungover, and hoarse.

    WORTH IT.

    I looked at it after reading your second sentence, and thought you were the body on the ground and thought - "ah, that's sad!".

    So I definitely see it. It's a sweet picture!

    considering you're hangover, the body lying on the ground makes perfect sense.

    1. Gatorade
    2. Water
    3. Ibuprofen
    4. Greasy breakfast food
    5. Bathroom and shower
    6. More water/gatorade
    7. Cannabis
    8. Coitus
    9. Nap

    9 step cure for a hangover. Unfortunately work usually nixes most of those steps for me.

    1,2,3 and six are still on the table, 8 is just running through my head on a constant loop... Coituscoituscoituscoituscoitus... I think that's officially my least favorite word in the English language right now. With "moist" and "panties" being a close second and third.

    Moist panties lead to coitus.

    There's a sentence with all three.

    Now you're puking.

    That will help your hangover.

    You're welcome.

    Five dollars.
