Johnathan Quigley was a rashly chosen pseudonym for a quick DavisWiki post. I like it, and I'm sticking with it. I created a new account, which after some issues with trying to use spaces and underscores ended up being... *almost*... like my real name— AndreWaymire.

My real name is Drew, and while I am an out of state student, I have adopted Davis as my community (that is, when I'm not stuck south of the main campus poking animals with sharp metal objects.)

Wait, these things are always written in third person, aren't they?

Well Drew has switched to third person now, and he hopes the change isn't disconcerting. Anyway, Drew is an Odd Fellows pledge, and would like to share the progressive attitude of the Davis Odd Fellows with lodges in other communities when he is forced to leave Davis for his job search. For those who don't know, the Odd Fellows... ah screw it here.

2009-06-09 01:54:01   Howdy Johnathan, and Welcome to the Wiki! My name's Evan, pleased to meet you. I answered your question on the PetCo entry... it's not as simple as you might think. —Evan 'JabberWokky' Edwards

The song is a lament about not having enough money for food, and going hungry. The majority of the lyrics are nonsensical vocal sounds, with one of the four actual lines being: "Have you ever heard of a wish sandwich? A wish sandwich is the kind of a sandwich where you have two slices of bread and you — hum hum hum hum — wish you had some meat!" —JabberWokky

Also, you should try to write in the future present. Text should be just as natural to read now as it will be in 5 years. —WilliamLewis


2010-01-27 11:30:15   As a complete aside (since I haven't even looked at the new feature you wrote up yet): "Not 2600 enough for me" is quite an amusing joke, if you know what 2600 is (the club, magazine and associated political efforts). I have a feeling the comment had nothing to do with you or the new writeup, as they are public and it was more humor than an actual comment on the revert. It was just a funny thing to say when restoring the payphone project writeup. —JabberWokky


2010-01-27 11:50:47   See, now you're throwing around insults, calling people geeks. Not everybody considers "geek" a positive stereotype, particularly older folk who predate when it was "cool". I replied on the Talk Page (actually, I replied twice, as I was confused and thought you were trying to add the comedy show at first read through, so I added a separator line to split your comment from the following writeup). It sounds like a good idea, and as I browse through, I see you've already added a bunch. I see no reason as to why it was reverted, so I'll cast my vote by readding it. —JabberWokky


2010-01-27 11:59:58   You know, I'm just trying to help you out. I'm not sure what ticked you off, but if you ask a public question, which you did, or comment in public, which you did, please don't complain at the person who takes the time and effort to answer your question and reply to your comment. —JabberWokky

2010-01-27 21:25:29   Hey, no worries. Everybody has days where they get their quills up. Especially in written communication where you have to read emotion into what was said, and sometimes interpret it way off from how it was intended. If people couldn't forgive, we'd quickly run out of people who hadn't offended us (intentionally or though miscommunication) yet. —JabberWokky


2010-03-20 07:07:36   Hey, I'm busy, so if my edit comment on that revert isn't clear, let me know. And "lame" is a Davis Wiki editor in-term for edits that move entries away from their subject, reduce the content or lessen the local relevance (the latter of which I used it for). There was a push awhile back to search for "lame pages" — as in "a lame horse" — and make them better or figure out if they were simply beyond the scope of local relevance. —JabberWokky
