Blogger at Work


Have you ever felt annoyed by colleagues taking a peak on your screen?
Have you ever been so worked up on your blog or reading someone else’s when a colleague comes out of nowhere and looks at your screen? You immediately minimize the window you’re reading when she gives you the eye that you’ve been watching erotica or something?

Did you ever reach a point where you abandon your real name and refer to yourself by your blog nickname? the blog nick name that shows your real personality more than your real life name does?
Have you ever held the phone to call a friend, and a blogger mate pops in to mind, you feel disappointed that you don’t have their number? and you realize that it is merely an on screen friendship?

Last week I was takjing to someone who was blaming me for submitting something very late, I said back: starting next week you will see a new ..... I had one moment of thinking before saying my real name instead of Ghassan!
Unfortunately, I see one blogger who I do not like on daily basis on workdays. Once, I thought I would jump in his face saying it is me Ghassan يا ......... but I did not.

Have you ever called a flamingo a flamingoliya? Cause thats what I did 2 days ago when my little brother asked me its name! Hahahahhaha ;)

Ms.Baker said...

This is a really great post BTW Flaming :)

Jewaira said...

Yes! Flamingoliya, Yes,to it all.
It would be less confusing if we all went by our real names.

I hope this won't mean we have to go in for psychotherapy or become schizophrenic personalities as a result of blogging!

Great post, Flamingoliya
