Distinguished Peters

by psu and peterb

Recently we have become aware that some readers of the blog have difficulty telling the two Petes, peterb and psu, apart. Here's a handy reference guide for when you have trouble.

peterb: Wannabe Italian poseur.
psu: Wannabe French poseur.

peterb: Pokes fun at himself.
psu: Pokes fun at peterb.

psu: Buys too many videogames and then doesn't play them.
peterb: Buys too many videogames, installs them, and then doesn't play them.

psu: Thinks Cory Doctorow is an insufferable prick.
peterb: Thinks Xeni Jardin is an insufferable prick.

psu: Prefers to buy and not actually play Japanese RPGs.
peterb: Prefers to buy and not actually play Western RPGs.

psu: Enjoys the Tour de France, thinks F1 is stupid after the first five minutes.
peterb: Enjoys F1, thinks the Tour de France is stupid until the last five minutes.

peterb: Can't subscibe to NetFlix because he's too cheap.
psu: Subscribes to NetFlix, but never watches any of the movies.

peterb: Dislikes exercise and the outdoors.
psu: Dislikes exercise and the outdoors, but feels guilty about it.

psu: Thinks peterb's Canon DSLR has lower noise and better JPEGs than his Nikon
peterb: Thinks psu's Nikon DSLR doesn't sound gay like his Canon.

peterb: Likes Chinese food because he is Jewish.
psu: Likes Chinese food because he is Chinese.

That's an awesome list, but it would've helped if you'd kept yourselves in the same order all the way down. Now I'm going to think psu is a wannabe French poseur who prefers Western RPGs.

psu: Has to code in Objective C
peterb: Oh, wait, they're both in Hell

Some of the entries just don't read right unless the order flips.

Also, I don't really know who Peter Molyneaux is, and have never played any of his games.

Oops, I guess psu sounded like a japanese anime girl's nickname rather than initials. I guess the mental voice when I read _his_ posts will have to change.

You should see him in his Sailor Moon outfit.

You should see him in his Sailor Moon outfit.

I am never going to get that image out of my brain.

"Hmmm, I wonder what Sailor Moon is..."... type type type. GAAAHHRRRGH. Splat.

I directly blame both Peters for making me buy a Nintendo DS with Animal Crossing and Mario & Luigi rpg this afternoon.

Ok, stop being such wankers.

Now tell me where the heck in Pittsburgh can I find some good dim sum? I don't want to drive to DC for this.
