What are some songs you would play to amp yourself up for a first day at a new job?

Do you have a nickname?  Who gave it to you and why?

When was the last time you drank too much?  (I'm expecting a lot of "last night" answers.)

I dunno, probably not any? Perhaps Eye of The Tiger

Mostly just Mer, though some older friends and family also call me Merbie, Merbuff, Duffy... Bald Headed Meredith. All but Me weer given by my neighbor's when I was a little girl. Mer... most people just call me that once I get close to them. My best friend's coworkers thought my name was Mer for a long time (I am fine being called that, but it weird me out being introduced as such).

I can't remember, but maybe three years ago? I can't remember which happened first--. the friends' birthday party where I decided to get as hammered as physically possible (after abut another three years without a drink), or the other friends Cinco de Mayo party when they put too much tequila to mixer in the frozen margarita machine. One and a half left me flat on my ass. Their Cinco de Mayo parties tend to go well into he night, but apparently everyone went home by 6pm.

Not sure.

People now refer to me as my twitter/instagram name which is nickname of my first name plus my middle name.

Probably last New Years. I was hungover for 3 days. Never again.

I have many. My latest is Wiggles. (there's a story if you'd like to hear. I might have mentioned it before)

I couldn't even tell you. Like 8-9 years ago?

I work as a stock clerk at a grocery store. One day a older(skeevy) guy asked me where the canned chili was. I went to take him to it and as he was walking behind me he remarked "Man, you've got a nice wiggle". I told a coworker and she started calling me Wiggles. Now a few more people do too.

I don't think I have any. But lately I've been listening to One Day More from Les Mis as I walk to work just because it seems to raise my energy levels.

My name is Kim so I get called things like Kimberley, Kimmy, Kimothy etc. My brother has given me many nicknames over the years, most of them are made up words or just random words he likes the sound of, but now he calls me K or Special K (the name of a breakfast cereal).

I don't think I've ever drunk too much. I've never been more than like, slightly buzzed.

1. Hmmm... good question...

2. A few of my friends call me LK. But that's only cuz they're my initials and we all call each other by our initials sometimes.

3. Yeah, definitely last night. Drunkest I've ever been in my life. I have the lowest tolerance ever. It was a blast though :)

We Didn't Start the Fire, but that's pretty much my answer to everything.

Some people call me Switzerland, 'cause my first name's Geneva and because I tend to be the peacemaker.

Hrm. I guess probably December 23rd? There was a Christmas party at the vintage store where I hang out and, although I was doing a pretty good job of counting my drinks, I was also right on the edge of coming down with a big cold, so I think that lowered my tolerance. I didn't do anything embarrassing, but I felt really sick after. I didn't drink anything on New Years Eve because I was very sad and I don't ever want to fall into the trap of drinking to cheer myself up.

"Expectations" by Belle and Sebastian? It ends on a positive note, it's got a "get out and carpe diem" vibe to it.

I listen to hardcore rap when I'm headed to work. I love it. Or 80s stuff.

yes. My dad (and only my dad) calls me Mango. No idea.. he's called me that since I was a kid. My mom and grandparents call me Megi.

it's been a few New Year's Eves ago.
