Ridiculously common names can be handy.

One of the great things about having such a common name like Dan Miller is that if I'm ever on the run from the law and I need to kill someone and usurp their identity, I should be able to do it pretty easily without even having to deal with changing names. For example, I could be a...

Copfighting Lawyer
Boyband Member
Motivational Speaker
Professor of Aviation
Techno DJ
Symbolic Interactionist

Honestly, the options are pretty much limitless. Obviously, I'll probably go for Techno DJ or Boyband Member, but I'm not dismissing that Symbolic Interactionist business either. The sad thing is that all of us Dan Millers seem to be universally ugly. Can't escape that. Oh well.

It is unfortunate that your name is the same as a Republican Congressman.

To bad for you.

Dude, did you read about the anchorman dude. He was once going to be a bunny suit wearing sidekick on a Pat Sajak talk show.

Can you say LOSER?

I notice most of the Dan's share a love of music - you've got the lawyer/former guitarist, the organist, the boy band member, even Sajak's Sidekick has a list of his five favorite (and unbelievably weird) albums!

That Techno DJ guy is kinda might want to rethink that one. LOL

That's too funny!
At least I don't know any Roba Assi's :P

If ever faced with that choice I think you should usurp the id of the Symbolic Interactionist. He has a fashion model daughter named Lena...if you married her you could then you could be your own grandpa...

You are the cutest Dan Miller.

I doubt there's anyone else in the world w/ my name. So, I know I'm the cutest *and* ugliest one!

You should add "Blogger" to that list:

Jennifer Schuster is pretty common as well. Whenever I google me I come up with Jennifer Weiner books published by Simon and Schuster.

But check out this other Jennifer Schuster - she likes fuzzy bunnies. Ick.

Ohhh, look at that. Dan is fishing for compliments like a stupid girl.

Them: "I hate how I look in this shirt"
Us: "Noo, that totally doesn't make your butt look big."

Them: I am so fat!
Us: "No, you're not fat"

Dan: "I'm ugly"
Us: "No you're the cutest Dan Miller I know."

I thought your name was Dan, not K*Mack.

Fishing for compliments is my modus operandi. Otherwise I would never get any. (See, that was a conscious attempt to elicit sympathy, which inevitably will lead to more compliments. I'm a mastermind genius at the art of compliment fishing).

Jen, she also likes rainbows, the zoo, and walking in the rain. And I bet you can safely add ponies and sunshine to that list.

Dan, I bet Jesus is somewhere on her "real" list. I also bet she has one of those hang in there kitten posters. Although they're so cliche that they're almost cool to have now. So I take that back, she probably has Thomas Kinkade paintings.

You dare mock the "PAINTER OF LIGHT"? I had a fun-filled afternoon visiting a "gallery" (I use the term loosely - it was in a mall) of his paintings and falsely expressing interest in purchasing one.

Salesperson: "What do you think of this one?"
Me: "It depresses me."
Salesperson: "OK?" (Note the questioning...her voice rose about 3 octaves.)
Salesperson: "And this one?"
Me: "It's just so bleak and dark..."

She left my side soon thereafter.
