Wrong Ian...

What was that?

Wrong Ian...

Postby Ian on Fri May 21, 2004 7:00 pm

You guys all realize that I'm not the same Ian that used to run CDRW Central, right? Is that fact clear enough for people? It must be the name Ian that does it. It's not like people think Bob Smith is the same person as Bob Johnson.

The reason I bring this up is that every so often I get an email sent to me that should go to Ian Ballard. I just got another one tonite. The guy was responding to a correspondance from like a year ago. I'm reading it over, and I'm like who the heck is this guy and what is he talking about?

Sorry.. just venting.

Yeah, the server they reside on is currently down for patching/upgrades. It has been for the last few days. Damn Solaris. #-o

Actually, there was another Ian back when we were CDRZone (the original CDRZone). But that was a long time ago. And no, I'm not king, or emperor or anything like that.. just one of the guys. And god forbid, I do not look like Boy George.

Doesn't Tyranosaurus Rex mean tyrant lizard or something? If so, you're name would be dolphin lizard. :P

Are you admitting to being OLD? :wink: Or are you just getting older?

Lets recap: Married. Moved into a house...still has the dog I assume. Let me guess: she's thinking kids by now....


You're getting old(er).

Old is just a state of mind. I still think I'm 21.

Your brain thinks this, but does your body agree? Case in point, can your body handle as many beers as it could when you were 21? :P

OUCH!

That's the ultimate test.

2 glasses of wine (or 3 Ale) and I'm done for the night.

Long gone are the 10 pint nights.

Yes, but I'm smarter now. I know that I will feel much worse in the morning if I drive say 6 beers, rather than 3.
