Personalized

The Friday Five The Friday 5 for this week is about personalization.

  1. What does it say in the signature line of your emails?
  2. Did you have a senior quote in your high school yearbook? What was it? If you haven't graduated yet, what would you like your quote to be?
  3. If you had vanity plates on your car, what would they read? If you already have them, what do they say?
  4. Have you received any gifts with messages engraved upon them? What did the inscription say?
  5. Have you received any gifts with messages engraved upon them? What did the inscription say?

    Journeyman: more than an apprentice, less than a Master
    Sourceror: pun on Sorcerer (I'm a computer programmer, hence "source code"; computer programming is a sort of modern magic)
    Scripts: a kind of programming
    Philtres: a pun on Filters, i.e. data filters, a type of programming
    Philtres is a wizardy term for potions; philtres are stored in phials (files :-)

  2. Did you have a senior quote in your high school yearbook?
    No. We didn't really do that. There were a few quotes scattered throughout the book...

  3. If you have vanity plates on your car, what do they say?
    My first vanity plate read BIOCOMP (because I got my degree in Biology and was working with computers. I had those for 10 years.
    When I got a QA job, I switched the plates to QALITY (shouldn't it be spelled with a "U"?). But so few people got the joke... sigh. Those lasted less than a year.
    Today we have a set on each car. One is HTRCATS aand the other is HTRCATZ. Both are pronouced "heatercats".

  4. Have you received any gifts with messages engraved upon them?
    Nope.

  5. What would you like your epitaph to be?
    I haven't a clue. Who can compete with the masters, anyway? Here are some good ones.
