I would love to hear the different pronunciations. Joe Cee Fuss, for me, accent on the Cee. Hard "G" for Gimma. "Gimma a break."



That's how I say them too.

I believe she referred to it as a twang.

You realize Poof is going to be insufferable now that she knows she is right.

Yay! Me, too.

Where there are differences, I use initials for GWP; I pronounce Gimma with a soft g (even though I know it's wrong); Joe CEE phus; I use Don't instead of d'name. I think those were where we differed. If I forgot anyone, I apologize.

Pooflady has a past life as a stunt car driver. She has this large mini-van (oxymoron) & she parallel parked it with extreme ease...kinda like the commercial for the car that parallel parks on its own. The second time she parallel parked, there were two bikers ready to pounce if she dare make a wrong move. I watched nervously from the back seat.

Tall was generally quiet except for a few outbursts (not quite as bad as Tourette's) where she requested Poof run over people in the crosswalk when Poof had a green light...especially older guys that "should know better." In fact, Tall has this thing about green lights and reminding Poof of them. It is kinda like watching a weird mother/daughter dynamic.


I think men in their 60s should know better than to run out in front of oncoming traffic. I didn't want Poof to hit him; only to beep at him so he would realize what a stupid thing he was doing.

And what is wrong with pointing out that a light is green if the driver is slowing down as you approach them?

Did I mention that I didn't get much sleep last night?

Of course KT is the most normal of the three of us!

KT was a good driver. Except she had no clue where she was going.
At least if she had come over to the Vineyard, I would have known where we were!

Poof was a good driver, just more conservative than me. And I'm used to being in the car alone most of the time.

Oooh! I love breakfast places. I'll have to figure out where they are. Looks like one is around an hour south of me, and I'm sure the other one is further. Can't get to restaurant websites at work, so someone remind me to look for these tonight.

KT - Your photos are beautiful - looks like it's been a good trip with lots of new, wonderful memories for this time of year.

Yeah, I say it is G W P, and I still think it is teenbee, even though I know it is tennbee. I just use Joe.
I will be going up to Ohio this summer for my cousins wedding, so perhaps I can discuss it with some of you peoples.

Still single, can't imagine why.

Even in real life, I am "GWP", and a few folks shorten it to "GW" (gee-dubbayah), and my son who is a Jr. often is called "G" by his wife.

That said however, I myself pronounce (in my head at least) DAJ as "Dahge". I wouldn't have known to put the em-Fah-sis on the Josephus' name as Joe-CEE-fus though. He has been Joseph-uss all this time, so I might not be able to re-wire that part of my brain...

Other folks real names and Woot-handles seem to be interchangeable in my mind.

"guh-whip", huh? Heh. Go figure.

Does your Daj rhyme with badge or dodge? In my head, it rhymes with badge.

It's Tall that pronounces it like Joe does. I evidently pronounce it incorrectly. I shall continue to do so.

There's another name that KT and I pronounce differently, but I can't remember how she says it. Maybe Tall will remember. I say Zee a.

And she was very, very calm when pointing out I was about to go the wrong way down a one-way street!

BUT where the sign distinctly said "NO LEFT TURN," she told me over and over, no one was coming, do it anyway.

Mostly like badge, but maybe a little softer J sound, almost like the "zs" in Zsazsa.

Edit: And I never pronounce (in my head) the numbers at the end of names. Made it easier with qwertyuiop0001-qwertyuiop0004...

Well, that was a silly rule. No left turn on Sunday between 12 and 10. Who thinks those things up?!? Our tax dollars at work...

DAJ rhymes with "badge." I'm called that some in person as well.

YEA! I wasn't talked about!

Wish I could see the pics. I'll look at lunch.
