FYI: Guinevere
Just so everyone knows…

My cat's name is Guinevere.

Not Gwen. Not Gwinny. Not Gwenny.

There are two things that make me write off a girl as a possible romantic interest faster than I can spit out have a nice night. First are the words I don't read very much. Second is calling my cat Gwenny.

I'm just sayin'.

Any pie flavour(s) you want to request?

Nope. Unless you know of a savory vegetarian pie. I was going to attempt something like that but the ER thing has put that plan out of reach.

I think the second one is foolish...

People have a natural instinct to call pets by two syllable names. Not 3, not 1, but 2. As somebody working through their aversion to nail polish issue, I can say with assurance, it's tough enough to find a person who meets your main needs, without divesting yourself of them because of a small innocent issue.

I have high standards.

Hm. My Miranda and Bethany do end up getting called Miss M and Miss Boo fairly often, but at least I don't truncate their names. ;-)

It's not that I mind shortened names. It's more that someone uses a non-chosen name immediately after being told the correct name. Not messing it up. Deliberately ignoring the picked name.

"Let me introduce you to Jeffrey."
"Hi Jeffy!"

WTF?

And then there's the people who waltz in, immediately pick up the cat, and snuggle her... Rude!

;)

That's perfectly fine. It keeps them from taking my books.

...for now. :)

That has never, ever stopped me from taking your books.

And yet, you still let me come over.

You are a strange man.

In Keenan's apartment, cat snuggles YOU!

Man... is that all I need to do to get you to stop hitting on me?!

Those are very appropriate deal breakers in my opinion.

Voice of Reason

Where first reason comes off as mildly believable, I wouldn't believe the Guinevere-reason for dumping a girl from anyone. Sorry, dude, that's just searching for a reason, any reason to say 'off you go'.
