So they got a new 40gb iPod in at the iPod store already. and they have a confusing policy.

See, many years ago, I stopped going by my given name and started going by a nomme d'affaires. When I registered the iPod, I used the nomme d'affaires. They want the nomme d'affaires to turn up and provide a photo ID. I have no photo ID on that name.

This could be interesting.

UPDATE: it bears note that the nomme d'affaires turns up on the photo ID that I have from the workplace- though with my given surname, rather than the nomme d'affaires surname. That is: nomme d'affaires is 'nameA nameB': my workplace ID is issued to 'NameA nameB given-surname' and has a photo of me on it.
Oh, and is issued to an employee of Apple's biggest competitor.


Went to visit the boys upstairs, just to shoot the shit, and ask their guest if she'd want the bookcase I'm getting rid of. Walked guest out to her car with Boy-Upstairs B. Discussion with guest brought up her success in quitting smoking which was in large part due to a Russian fellow who now lives in Boston. Decided, with Boy Upstairs B, that I'd be willing to go to Boston in 6 months - 1 yr for the sake of quitting smoking.
After all: smoking stinks, is vile, and is bad for one. Sure, it feels good- but beyond that it's Nasty Nasty Nasty.
Parted ways in the foyer after walking Boys-Upstairs-guest to her car, went to give Boy-Upstairs-B a peck goodnight.
Oh my GOD, boy-upstairs-B tried to slip me the tongue. We were both pretty drunk (I still am), so I'm happy to chalk it up as me being decent-looking and not keeping him at arm's distance. But I was quite startled and more than a little repulsed.

Suggestions of how to appropriately deal with a guy being interested in me who I'm not interested in in the least would be welcome. Keep in mind: I'd like to keep Boy-Upstairs-B as a friend: he's a great guy, I enjoy talking to him, I like his sense of humor and his perceptions of the universe. I'm simply not sexually interested in him.
  • (no subject) -
  • You could tell him you don't swing that way.
    • Won't work.
      • Tell him nicely (although you doing things in just about any other way would be surprising to me) that you've never thought about him in that fashion, and whatever he may have been thinking was just harmless flirting on your part, and that you'd still very much like to be friends.

        This has worked WONDERS for me.

  • Don't kiss him anymore.
  • time travel excuse

    tell him a psychic told you he is the reincarnation of your great great grandmother (the rich and beautiful debutante from 160 years ago,thats the reason he loves you so much) but your relationship must stay on that higher spiritual level,only kisses on the cheeks like a good european grandmama
  • Considering the drunkness, he may have the same quandary now and be trying to figure out how to explain his actions. Given that, just letting it go may work. If it actually comes up, however remotely, I'd go with mercede02's suggestion.
  • Could just keep up the friend end of it and if he tries anything again, explain it nicely.
  • Ask him if (choose 1 or more):

    He minds dressing as a milkmaid
    He agrees that no reasonable person can ever have too much leather
    If he minds people hailing Satan in moments of passion.
    If he's worried about your crazy ex with a chainsaw who just got out of prison.
    He has any problems with lots of rubber. And hard edges.
    If he's also a devoted, fanatic, all loving fan of Britney Spears.
    If he'd like to meet your great uncle, Rev. Phelps

    If you use ALL of these and it still doesn't work - well, you probably need to start running anyway.
