My mother told me when I was little that I would appreciate my name when I got older, BUT GUESS WHAT? I'm much older than I ever thought I would ever be I STILL HATE IT. Maybe when I retire to Greece where people have actually HEARD the name before, it will be all right, but for now: SUCK.
What makes it even worse is the way people leave it up to themselves to shorten it. I, like most Panagiotas, answer to Peggy, Peg, and Penny, but I really FUCKING HATE being called 'Iota. It's okay when it's pronounced correctly, but in New York, people say it YODA. When non-Greeks see it in writing they read it as "iota", as in "I don't care one iota for this name" and when Greek Americans from the Bronx say it, they say YODA, after which I have fifty gazillion people coming up and asking me, "Your name is Yoda? Were you named after Yoda?"
Yeah right, asshole, my mother named me after a wizzened up gnome from outer space. Go fuck yourself. :(
Uh huh, I am PMS-ing. Big time. So leave me alone. :P
I might as well do this now too: got a photobucket account and want to see if it actually WORKS before I upload any more pictures onto it.
