More foolishness

Some people have no sense

” Afternoon. Computer Services Helpdesk”
“Hello yes. Is that the helpdesk?”
“Yes. How can I help?”
“Well Im filling in this computer form online for computer quota using my computer on the network…”
“yes go on”
“…and theres a part thats asking for my ‘real name‘ . Can you tell me what it means?”
“Erm…..ok…well basically its your name”
“yes but whats my realname”
“your name is your real name! unless you’re using an alias”
“yes but I dont understand all that computer stuff.”
Blood pressure rises gradually.
“OK. I’ll try and explain in a more simple manner. Can you tell me what your name is please?”
“Im Professor Noah Tall*”

“Ok then your real name is….Noah Tall*, unless that is you want to be known as Mickey Mouse or Fred Squirrel or something”
“Oh I see! oh well thats stupid why doesnt it just ask me what my name is?”
“Thank you for calling”

*(name changed to protect the stupid)

Once, long ago, I wrote frequently on Livejournal. I then moved to Blogspot, where I discovered that blogging requires an audience. So I moved back to LJ. Then over to Dreamwidth, back to LJ, up the road of self hosting with Muckybadger before giving up entirely and moving over to Wordpress. It was at that moment I decided I would spread my compostual nonsense simultaneously across the blogosphere like some rancid margarine. And so here I am. I am a badger. But then I'm not really a badger. I am a human. With badger like tendencies. I am a writer, a film producer and a social commentator. I am available for Breakfast TV shows, documentaries and chats in the pub with journalists where I am more than qualified enough to talk confidently about absolute shite and bollocks.
