Under Surveillance

About A Girl

Once upon a time, I was in a video store with my then boyfriend trying to pick out a movie to watch. I picked up John Carpenter's Vampires, and proceeded to tell the boy about the coolest scene in the movie, where a guy uses his hot-from-being-fired gun to cauterize a wound he received. Said boyfriend looks at me, shakes his head, and says, "You're not like other girls, Betty."

Where You Live

Friday, February 23, 2007

One of the best things about working a customer service/call center type of job is getting to see the interesting names & addresses of other people. I've helped both Mrs. Rosemary Thyme and Miss Princess Prince in the past. I've met people who live at 420 High Street, and these examples don't evin begin to touch what people come up with for email addresses.

Today I helped someone who lives on "Adventure Avenue." Besides making me think of both possible children's TV shows and the song "Electric Avenue," by Eddy Grant, it also made me wonder what kind of pressure someone who lives on that street must feel. If you lived on Adventure Avenue do you think you'd feel like every day had to have some exciting adventure to be complete? I know I've heard about people petitioning to change the name of Gay Street, so people must feel like their address reflects them in some way. I think I'm content living on a street named after some long-dead white guy.

By the way, you can thank me later for getting "Electric Avenue" stuck in your head all day.
