Okay, so I work in a jail (jail medical, I'm not a corrections officer) and my big project right now is purging inactive medical records. This can actually be amusing, as some inmates have very strange/funny names (hey, when you work in a jail medical records room, you take your laughs where you can get them!).

Anyway, the point is, today was apparently YGO-themed names day because over the course of eight hours I saw all of the following:

-2 Maliks
-A Tea
-Seto as a surname
-Egypt as a first name
-Egypt as a surname
-And some random guy (actually, his name made me laugh, too - Justice) who was booked for punching someone out over a card game and whose psych evaluation said he was addicted to gambling. It relates!

So, yes, if there was any doubt about my ability to relate fandom to anything, I think I just put an end to it. But I think it's one of the best things about this fandom - so many of us are able (and willing!) to make YGO-related connections in the most mundane everyday sorts of activities. It's kind of amazing. XD
