That’s not me, that’s my alias
My friend Ken has asked me to blog about his friend Ted. Ted’s real name is Tedmond but we call him Tedemundo because it sounds funny. I don’t know why. Ted is not a very funny guy. Ted used to work for Ci2i which, not coincidentally, is the same place where Ken and I worked. It was a good little company that also went by the name of USCreative.com or the Creative Arts Directory. I don’t know why, in this new age of technology, everybody has to have lots of names, but I guess that’s the way it is. Ken wants Ted to create a blogger and so he has asked me to needle Ted until he does so. Ted, if you are reading this, and you are not under an assumed name, create a damn blogger already so Ken can get off your back about it. It’s much easier to just try to comply.
Speaking of Ci2i, I have not yet received my W-2 from them. Once I do, I can tackle the next great challenge in life: taxes. Ugh. I don’t even want to think about it. Maybe I could file under an assumed name? I bet the IRS would hunt me down and kill me. It’s what they do. It’s like a sport for them. And they are very, very good at it.
Speaking of names, I have always disliked mine. Don’t get me wrong, I think Carol is a great name. It’s my last name I dislike. No offense to my father at all, but I just have always disliked it. It’s long and hard to spell and it makes people think I am Italian (which I am in part, but this is a subject for another blog.) I wish I lived back in the days when you got to pick your last name based on what you did. Wait, that would make me either “programmer” or “photographer.” Come to think of it, my last name isn’t all that bad. It’s better than Tedemundo, I suppose.
Now, when I sign off with my usual signature, will you take my word for it that it really is little ole’ me? I hope so.
Until next time, this is Carol, the Carol in “Carol’s Little World” signing off.
