I don't see people calling you by the full name, deffinately by a shorter version or nickname....just judging by your playful personality

i dont know if i like my name

i dont think dianne suits me, and i dont like a lot of people calling me di (dont think that suits me either) - it's too playful for me to be comfortable with everyone using it.

i think i could be an angie - good call

Well.....

*puts down Gin and Tonic and leans back in chair*

*takes deep breath*

My actual name is Sergio....

Serge for short....but I hate the 'e' because then its pronounced "Seeeer-je" *in french accent*

So I used to sign stuff as "Serg"

Well, when I attended the Univ. of Connecticut I was an art major....go figure...a Sergio as an art major....who would of thunk it? maybe a gay fashion designer...but thing is I'm not gay and I don't know designers...kind of redundant don't ya think?

anyhow....being pretty good at art and drawing...along with what many describe as "an uncanny ability to capture a funny moment and express it visually" I decided to try to get a job with the school newspaper as a comic stripper (clothing optional ) To give you an idea, the school newpaper at UConn is very well known around campus, and is read by just about EVERYONE. It has both proffessional comics as well as some student ones too. Well I had a chance to get a comic my second year after being denied my first. Looking for a name....I thought long and hard, at the time there was a soda called "Surge" I bet you remeber those annoying screaming ads? SUUUUUUUUUURGE!!!! Which haunted me for years after as EVERYONE felt it necessary to yell it to me EVERY time they saw me.

*takes breath and sip from glass*

Long story short, I decided to name it 'Surge' . It went on to be very popular and from then on EVERYONE automatically called me SURGE and wrote things to me as SURGE...so it stuck and thats the short version of the stroy I guess.....

whew.....

*picks up glass and rattles icecubes around until one drops in mouth*

Thanks for the chat (don't they have a male version of this smilie???)

Hmm, quiet night.

>>> Turns on jukebox and selects "Two Shots of Happy, One Shot of Sad <<<

Two shots of happy, one shot of sad
You think I'm no good, well I know I've been bad
Took you to a place, now you can't get back
Two shots of happy, one shot of sad

>>> Walks to the back corner of the bar and finds a lone beer stein <<<

Walked together down a dead end street
We were mixing the bitter with the sweet
Don't try to figure out what we might of had
Just two shots of happy, one shot of sad

>>> Grabs broom and slowly sweeps around the bar <<<

I'm just a singer, some say a sinner
Rolling the dice, not always a winner
You say I've been lucky, well hell I've made my own
Not part of the crowd, but not feeling alone

>>> Checks the time on the wall, shakes head <<<

Under pressure, but not bent out of shape
Surrounded, we always found an escape
Drove me to drink, but hey that's not all bad
Two shots of happy, one shot of sad

>>> Hand washes the last two glasses, noting the lipstick on one. <<<

Guess I've been greedy, all of my life
Greedy with my children, my lovers, my wife
Greedy for the good things as well as the bad
Two shots of happy, one shot of sad

>>> Rearranges the bar stools and wipes down the bar <<<

Maybe it's just talk, saloon singing
The chairs are all stacked, the swinging's stopped swinging
You say I hurt you, you put the finger on yourself
Then after you did it, you came crying for my help

>>> Turns down the lights in the bar to a faint dim <<<

Two shots of happy, one shot of sad
I'm not complaining, baby I'm glad
You call it a compromise, well what's that
Two shots of happy, one shot of sad

>>> Turns on the television lays down on the leather couch, and puts hands behind head waiting for the next customer <<<

Two shots of happy, one shot of sad
