Is there an I.P. Freely? P. Freely, anyone?!

The other night I was out for dinner with some friends. They decided they wanted a code name so none of us would wonder whose name the reservation was under. I am still not sure why we couldn’t just agree on one of our own names – but I digress...

I suggested one that my guy came up with: Jenna Thalia. The drunken consensus was unanimous.

The more I think about this, the more I am convinced that we should make this go viral. The next time you make reservation for a group, I implore you to use that name to book. Then, upon arriving do the following:

Host: "Hello."

You: "Hi, I’m meeting friends. I believe the reservation’s under ‘Jennifer Thalia.’" Then wait a moment, shrug innocently and say: “She sometimes goes by ‘Jenna’ – Jenna Thalia.”

Then pray that he makes an announcement over a loudspeaker or, at the very least, tries desperately to control his laughter while leading you to your table.

(Hey if there is more than one “Jenna Thalia” table – we can all make new friends! )

For more shit-disturbing things to do, I find this list to be most useful:
