Just thought I'd send out a memo so people knew it was me... I've decided to change my user name, to just my name. I figured I'd make it clear..so... goodbye to slightly grumpy Frowner... Nice to meet you, I'm Rob.
Hi. My name is Christiane. Or Chris. Hope is my middle name. Nice to meet you Rob. & Alan & Joyce & Brian & Naomi & Sasha (Ariella). & Kyle, again :) & Susan & Jeni & Fred & Shelly!
The pleasure is mine, Hope. Thank you.
Nice to meet you too, Christiane! :) Lovely first and middle name, btw!
Hi Hope! Nice to meet you!
Thank you everyone! I changed my middle name when I got married. It happened to be the same (Shannon) as my husband's ex wife's 1st name
I am so lost... (My name is not "so lost") you can call me smelly for short! :-)
:( -- a frown in remembrance of Frowner.
Nice to meet you, Rob! I'm Sasha, but most people call me by my middle name, Ariella. Although I've gotten use to Frowner, Rob is awesome! Glad there are no more frowns! :-)
Oh my gosh, you have such a beautiful name! ❤ Sasha Ariella (Soon to be whatever your fiancé's last name is).
Aw, thanks Mr. L :)
You're always so sweet and wonderful! ❤❤
Oh stop talking about yourself! ;)
Thanks Sasha. Yer pretty awesome yerself.
Hey! I'm Naomi. :)
Naomi?! Was not expecting that name. At. All.
:D Is there a problem, pipes? That's awesome! (:
Beautiful name, hello Naomi.
Haha what were expecting then, Pipes?
Nice to meet you Rob, you can call me Brian, or pipes, whatever pleasures your fancy.
I'll stick with pipes.. Thanks
Hello Rob. Welcome :)
Ah, de-frowned eh? Hi there happy rob.
Hi Rob. It's Joyce
Hi Rob , I'm still Shelly
Some how I knew that.. Hi there Shelly..
I like that your Rob now :)
Me too .. Thanks!!
Thanks for the heads up.
Erm, can I still call you Frowner? Because my phone recognizes you....and that's just the way I roll.....
but more of a cooler. I would avoid violence if at all possible. Ya know, be nice till its time to not be nice, that sort thing.
That shouldn't have posted there.. :>/
What I said was, you can call me what you want. My phone knows you as Zimmy.
Awww. Zimmy is cool. :-)
Sounds too much like a knockoff version of the Joker..
Heh, I usually hear someone called smiler as a sarcastic comment about their grumpy demeanor.
You're still going to be Frowner to me.
Also, how was "Rob" not taken already?!?
Exactly. When I first signed up it wasn't. When I couldn't get it, I frowned, and well the rest is History.
Hi Rob! Does this mean that you have turned your frown upside down by any chance?
That's almost exactly why.
I was a different person when I chose that name.
That's the name I use when first entering any social network. Frank Frowner, is usually my whole name.
Well it sounds Ike your just in a happier place in life which is amazing so congrats on the new perspective and keep on smilin!!!
I was a bartender in a saloon, more or less, for the last yearish. It shut down and I was outa work for 3 months. Now I'm in a place where can learn everyday and I Will have a career. I'm a happier person in a happier place.
Wow well at least you came out the other end of it stronger and happier and with a kick-a$$ new job! I'm sorry you had to go through that for 3 months, that must have been rough but look at yourself today, you're effing awesome and in an awesome place
I believe you can learn something from everything. Kinda like everything happens for a reason. But not. I just think you can take some tidbit of information from every experience you have.
You could not be more right, I always say that to my friends whenever something bad or depressing is happening and sometimes I think they want to punch me in the face but it's true, and Thayer everything is said and done they realize I was right :)
I think it's important, especially when something bad happens or you fail at something to ask, what have I learned from this. How can I make That never happen again..etc..
If you don't learn form it then how can you grow, move forward, learn to not make the same mistakes etc. Nobody is perfect so if we aren't willing to look at where we took a misstep in life then bad things will just keep happening, bottom line.
It is frustrating to encounter a person who is not aware of or is unwilling to see this seemingly simple and obvious concept. Failures in life are a good thing in the sense that they teach us what not to do at the very least. I heard somebody say
Say that one definition of insanity is to repeatedly make the same mistake while expecting a different and positive outcome this time because that will never happen, the same mistakes lead to the same negative outcome.
Sorry about the novel long responses, I talk way too much, or type way too much in this case. I'm drunk so don't hold it against me please
Sorry, I didn't realize I was holding it against you..::wink::..
Hahaha THAT just made my day! And by the way, my day was already fantastic, you just put the icing on the cake like a MoFo!
And I probably would let you hold it against me, I might even like it, OH MY!
You've been drinking, I wouldn't want to take advantage. I'm as sober as a bird right now.
Well aren't you a gentleman! Brownie points for Rob!!!! And I never drink so this is a rare moment, a very rare moment.
I'm due for a drunk nite. Usually once every couple months. Not a big drinker myself. Being a bartender I saw a lot of the bad drinking can do.
I am sure that you have seen the very best and the very worst of the drunkenness spectrum. And I am also sure that you have seen some pretty funny sh*t go down. I love stories if you care to share any!
Oh and I am also sure that you are an absolute BLAST to get drunk with, I ca just tell that you would be a super fun drinking buddy
Being from the other side of the bar, I do make a good drinking buddy honestly. I'm usually one of the more sober, and I usually know exactly what's going on, in the entire surrounding area.
Put another way, yeah, I handle my $hit!
You just keep sounding better and better, mister! Better and better..
I'm going to sleep with that being the last thought in my head...yer a doll .. Gnite Niz.
Sweet dreams Bobert!
I promise that I will NEVER call that again, but I couldn't resist this one time ;)
But for real, sleep tight and right!
...:::next morning scowl::....
Haha I was kidding, I couldn't resist for some reason.
If you're scowling, then you've gone back to frowning!
I scowl with my eyes..
Well that's just sexy, so keep up tutor work ;)
*keep up the good work*
Do you need any scowl tutoring? All you have to do is ask.
I think I just might need some tutoring so this is me asking you to grace me with your um tutelage!!!
Can I call you Robert or Bobby?
Hi Rob :)
Can I call you Bobert?
No... Maybe...and defiantly not.
Hahaha OK good because it wasn't as funny as I first thought it was. It isn't my fault, I threw a pool party today and I accidentally got drunk even though I don't drink normally so I think everything is funny right now even if it isn't funny, whoops
Isn't Rob a nickname for the proper name of DickFace McGee?
I would stick with Rob too...
I think your thinking of the proper name BeachBum..
I think you're right about that one haha
Frowner was a good username, but Hi Rob!
It's actually my first user name for anything.. When I don't want to use my real info..if I'm trying something out.. I figure I'll stick around this joint for a while..and I'd rather just be me.
Pleasure to meet you, Rob! You may call me Kyle, or MrLucchese if you'd like to. Hope you had a good fourth.
I've grown accustomed to calling you Lucc, if that's ok with you..
Certainly. I'm fine with that. (:
Good. Thank you.
Omg your name is Kyle? That is cool. How did you get to be MrL? Lol
My last name is Lucchese. (:
Oh! I've never heard of that last name before!
Hmm, I'm actually surprised. :) There are three reasons people usually know it: they know me, they have heard about the Lucchese boot company or the Lucchese crime family. :P How was your day yesterday, hsim? (:
Crime family? That sounds interesting.. Hehe
And I had a great day! I spent it at the beach with my family and family friends, and my dad grilled pork steaks. It was awesome:) hbu?
That's great to hear! :)
Mine was good too, I suppose. We had a party at my Uncles, blew through $2500 in fireworks. :D
I bet that awesome cool lol. We were supposed to watch fireworks on the beach, but they were canceled after the first minute or two because of the wind. But I didn't mind! We came back inside and played apples to apples lol
That game can be so much fun! It's even funnier when you're the only sober one and they're trying to read cards. xD
Haha that comment was supposed to say "I bet that was cool." Lol idk where that awesome came from >.<
And yeah I love that game:) I won! Haha
I love pork steaks & Apples to Apples!
Words tend to sneak up on people. ;P Or commenting on the top instead of replying. That happens to a lot of us, too.
Good job! :D You still couldn't beat me at Monopoly. (;
Hi Rob! You look great in a suit.
Thanks EB, you always say the nicest things.
I wouldn't say it if it weren't true.
You look great in the only blouse I've ever seen you in. It's a blouse, right? Would you just call that a shirt? I don't know words for girl cloths..
I'd like to be like EB when I grow up.
I mean the "saying nice things" part. Not the blouse part.
I like the new you!
Already noted, but it's nice to meet the new, less grumpy you :)
Thanks a million!
Sup Rob? You can call me Alan if you want, I'm not changing my name though because it reminds me to be nice.
It reminds ALL of us to be nice.
Mine had the opposite affect.
...and hello Alan.
I don't care ! But in glad I met you on SOH .. You have put up great debates and funny comments. ????????
I knew some/most wouldn't.. So I have you the option. FYI ..I'm still funny.
It's seems so weird now...
You'll be ok..I promise.
Rob! I like it-fits you :)
Thanks, its grown on me..
