Here's BANANA, I got the label from an EE lab (where it probably meant banana *plug*), but it was too good of a sticker to *not* name my computer BANANA
Please I need a better naming scheme, this is a cry for help
I'm horrible at giving hostnames to computers
"Oh yeah this laptop has a cracked screen, call it cracktop"
"There's a big sticker on this laptop saying BANANA, call it BANANA"
"This is a laptop that's shitty, let's call it badtop"
"This desktop uses DDR2 and is crap, let's call it deskrap"
"JS stands for jump server, but it also stands for Joestar, so imma call this raspberry pi jonathan-js and the next one joseph-js"
"I can't think of names so I'll just call this rack server b o n g u s"
Y'all I'm winning at this trans thing
This guy carpooling me to a school club event seemed familiar. We chatted on our way there, and it turns out he was in my all-guys dorm in my freshman year.
Me: "I know where I remember you from, we lived in the same dorm floor!"
Him: "but that was an all-guys floor"
Me: "yeah I'm trans"
He seemed pretty surprised, meaning I can't be recognized from my old self, and I pass as a girl!
