Forgot to mention our work XMas party last year.

It was trivia..

One of the questions was "Where is Christmas Isl?" I said Pacific Ocean, south of Hawaii. I was wrong, I was told. They meant the other Christmas Island. I was so mad, because no one believed me.



Also had xmas topic chitchat going on at work and a colleague mentioned that there is a Christmas Island. I told him that there are actually two and launched AE in order to show him on the map - instead of using something easier and faster like Google maps or so... Does this qualify as addiction?

We are required to update our curriculum vitae annually, which we use in place of a resume for academic merit pay raises. Our department asks for the merit report and wants our "CV" also. I have to do a double take about the request from my chair for my carriers.

"You want my CV, eh? Well, you can come and take it, Yankee dog! BANZAI!"

ETA: I've received the 'mothership look' from Aussies when talking about Darwin, Broome and Port Hedland too.

When I was in college I knew a girl whose initials were CV. I asked her if she knew that CV is the Navy abbreviation for an aircraft carrier. "Yes. So I'm big and grey."

Even funnier, she ended up marrying another friend of mine whose last name starts with L. So she became CVL.

I guess that made her less big, but still grey?

Yes. It should have occurred to me to mention that at the time, because when I asked her if she knew, I also ran through the possible changes to her initials if she married guys we knew because, in addition to her future husband, with whom she was only casually involved at the time, we also knew two guys whose last names start with E and H. We didn't know any guys whose last name started with A, B, or N, though.
