Introducing myself 
9th-May-2008 06:36 pm
I've just signed up for my Livejournal and I need to make some friends. My "real life" friends are kind of lame and all use MySpace. I refuse to feed that machine because I'm such a rebel (sarcasm) and the layouts over there give me a headache. Anyway, allow me to introduce myself and pimp for a few people to talk to because the internet is extremely boring when you do it alone.

My name is Dev Quinn, I'm 19, single, a college dropout, and way too honest for my own good. Dev's not short for anything. Please don't call me DQ or Dairy Queen - unless we're really good friends. I'm originally from Los Angeles, California, but have recently moved to Boston. I literally threw the names of some east coast cities into a hat and picked one out at random. I'm hiding from my family, i.e. trying to establish some independence and boundaries. I'm currently working as a high class escort and my johns include some local politicians and television personalities.

Kidding. I'm a clerk in a huge soulless chain bookstore and I sell mass market paperbacks to middle-aged women who think Danielle Steel is high art.

Okay, that's a little about me. Your turn.

ooc: Dev is a new non-fandom original character who popped into my head one day and asked for his own journal. He's open for RP and suggestions for writing comms. :)

Hi Dev, I'm Noah. I just moved to Boston too.
10th-May-2008 02:34 am (UTC)
Hi Noah. Where'd you move from?
10th-May-2008 02:44 am (UTC)
I moved from New York, but originally I'm from Montana.
10th-May-2008 02:45 am (UTC)
Montana? Is it true that sheep outnumber people out there?
10th-May-2008 02:55 am (UTC)
Well I grew up in Billings, but yeah there probably are.
10th-May-2008 02:59 am (UTC)
So what made you decide on Boston?
10th-May-2008 03:09 am (UTC)
A guy I met in New York offered me a job here. It beat the hell out of flipping hamburgers and I managed to get a scholarship to Boston U.
10th-May-2008 03:12 am (UTC)
Some guy offered you a job? As what? His concubine?
10th-May-2008 03:52 am (UTC)
Hi Dev. I'm from Los Angeles myself. I have one of those MySpace things, but I kinda haven't done anything with it in awhile.

So, you work retail too, huh? I mean...well, I do tech support mostly since I work for the Nerd Herd over at a certain electronics chain store. But...every so often I get roped into sales stuff too. So I kinda hear ya.
10th-May-2008 04:00 am (UTC)
There really needs to be a category of justifiable homicide just for retail workers who have to deal with asshat customers. I should run for office and see about getting that done.

Tech support? So if I have trouble with my computer, you're the guy I can call?
10th-May-2008 04:10 am (UTC)
*grins* Or at least justifiable maiming.

Yup. Or your cell phone. Seems like I've been fixing a few of those lately.
10th-May-2008 04:28 am (UTC)
Justifiable maiming. I like. Implies longterm suffering.

What kind of support do you give for cell phones? Is technology outsmarting consumers more and more now?

10th-May-2008 04:36 am (UTC)
A guy I work with would probably like a justifiable violence bill passed. Sometimes I wonder how he smacks some of us around and still has his job. Maybe the NSA has to pay off Buy More. Who knows?

Oh, basically recovering lost data. Like address books and stuff. Or getting a phone that's shorted out up and running again.
10th-May-2008 04:43 am (UTC)
You get smacked around at work? Unless you're into that sort of thing, it sounds highly inappropriate.
10th-May-2008 04:48 am (UTC)
N-n-no. Definitely not into it.

Basically one guy at work has a short fuse and....well, some of us have been pushed down by him.

10th-May-2008 04:51 am (UTC)
That sounds shitty. Isn't there anyone you can complain to about it?
10th-May-2008 05:01 am (UTC)
I guess I could talk to my boss.

But anyway...*shrug* That's life I guess.

So uh....what soulless corporate chain do you work for, if I may ask? I work at Buy More, in case you were curious.

Oh and, uh, I forgot to introduce myself. I'm Chuck, by the way.

Hello, Dev, I am Richard. I too lived in Boston for a time, it is an interesting city, although I am sure much changed from my time there.
4th-Aug-2008 05:11 pm (UTC)
Hi, Richard. How long ago were you here?
4th-Aug-2008 05:18 pm (UTC)
*slight smile*
Ages ago.
4th-Aug-2008 05:31 pm (UTC)
Then it probably has changed. Things seem to change overnight nowadays, don't you think?
4th-Aug-2008 05:37 pm (UTC)
Indeed and yet some things seem eternal.
6th-Aug-2008 03:36 am (UTC)
True. Like finding a Starbucks on every corner.
7th-Aug-2008 12:25 am (UTC)
But I do not drink coffee...or tea.
7th-Aug-2008 09:19 pm (UTC)
So what's your poison?
