musings { the labels I've had

Sitting here, downloading a myriad of music from iTunes to scratch my audiophile itch (after having downloading a wide selection of 'Wizard Rock') to acquire more music I miss from the 80s I sat pondering the many names I've been called over the course of my life. Why did I do this? I have no clue.

In no order:

asshole
dick
stupid
nerd
smart
smarty pants
know it all
hick
cliff claven
four eyes
cosmopolitan
refined
crude
stinky
dweeb
geek
dork
dumbass
smartass
nice guy
'friend' (as in I only want to be friends)
son
grandson
lover
husband
best friend
good friend
who?
lead (as in team lead)
co-worker
colleague
obstacle
adjudicator
problem solver
trouble maker
brother
educated
well read (what?)
ignorant
stubborn
short sighted
long sighted
fat
obese
survivor
great-grandson
Senior Systems Administrator/Engineer/Architect
Help Desk Operator
Technical Analyst
Senior Systems Engineer - Engineer (OS)
Senior Systems Programmer
student
graduate
drop out
hey
dude
man
huggy bear
wannabe
has been
Salutatorian
remedial
special ed student
special K
cancer patient
freak
scary
uber-nerd
liberal
lefty
communist
green
hopeless
socialist
marxist
pagan
atheist
agnostic
catholic
scientist
scientician


And many many many many more. I don't know really where I was going with this, I'm sure I will be called more as my life goes on. If anyone is reading, share what you've been called. Every label above has a story, but most of those stories will only be told over a beverage.

I'm shocked that you've been called a scientist. Who was the ill-informed bloke that called you that?
