    I get called Adz which is annoying for an Adam. Don't mind Addy though. Makes me feel youthful.
    Never been called Addy before. I think I would take it as condescending.

    @wuntyphyve

    Thanks man.

    So iíll probably see her at football tomorrow and itís probably the last chance I have to make the correction. I just need her to call me Steve again so I can correct her.

    Either that or I start calling her a random name that isnít hers and see how that pans out.

    Or Steve.

    When she questions it I can just say, sorry I thought thatís what we called each other.

    Tomorrow when she calls you Steve just say "sorry that's my twin brother, hi, I'm Rob".

    Done.

    I get called Dean at least 3 or 4 times a week. Often on emails, replying to an email with my name in the email address and also at the end of the email.
    That is really annoying. My name gets spelt either Johnathan or Jonathon and it's very frustrating.

    Whoa.
    The term 'redneck' comes from pro union workers in 1920s USA wearing red bandanas around their necks?
    Hmmm.

    Huh. I always assumed that it was because backwards bumpkins from the Deep South would have red necks because of sunburn.

    You know it's a bad month when minecraft is second and gta v is third though. Astral chain coming in at 10th cant have been good for their sales numbers over there.

    Edit, just seen that astral chain was only on sale for 2 days though.

    Not sure that new consoles coming at some point next year will be affecting sales yet. Maybe a few months before they release.

    Was a poor month for new releases though.

    @Frogofdoom if you donít have the consoles already and you know the new one is out next year, wouldnít you wait for a sale?

    Isn't there a better pronoun than they/them for non binary people? Or is that bigoted to suggest?

    It just reads weird to me when actually used. I get the usage in essence but I always took it to mean plural not either/or.

    Not a big deal, just the Sam Smith thing got me thinking. Respect to them for outing themselves(?) . Being openly gay must be hard enough.

    Well, I wouldn't call him a "thing" for starters.

    Currently reading books about fundraising (for a work assignment I'm on), and my god is it tough. Not the subject matter - a lot of the advice is pretty helpful, if obvious. But the constant barrage of folksy Americanisms (the authors are almost always American), cute acronyms that just HAVE to spell out something, and the overall tone of someone trying to sell you a vacuum cleaner... it's hell.
