Who is MrJoelieC the James Lipton FAQ:
What’s with this name you keep using? This MrJoelieC?
MrJoelieC (Pronounced Mister-joe-lee-see) is a nickname I have adopted that in actuality has a very deep history. It was my Mother and 2 sisters who regularly called my Joelie (joe-lee) as a very young child to wake me up in the morning. My Mother used to yell out: “Joelie!!! Uppy Uppy Uppy!!!!! Time to get Up!!!!”
Somehow – and this is a bit of a mystery – At my first Job at a grocery store called Violette’s IGA many of the cashiers took to calling me Joelie. I suspect once while bagging my own mothers groceries my mother let the name slip and the word spread. But no matter.
The final incarnation of the name MrJoelieC, occurred in the back room of Violette’s. I was checking in the load, working the run, of an incoming truckload of product, organizing them with myself, and a few others and one of the store managers who was notorious for an immense amount of sarcasm. One of the cashiers that at the time was older than I and I might have had a tiny bit of a crush on, (Come to think of it there were not many of the cashiers I didn’t have a crush on.) came out back took a look at me and said “JoelieC (Joe-lee-see) !!!! Give me a hug!!” and we both hugged….. All this – in front of Mr. Sarcasm our store manager….. Who looked right at her, not missing a single beet, and said: “That’s Mister Joe-Lee-See to you and me!!”
Thus, the name was born… And spread like wildfire…. I embraced it, I mean, why not? there are far worse nicknames I have been called like: A-hole, Dog-Vomit, Monkey-Puss, Douche-Balloon, So… It became my “screen name” while playing video-games, my Hotmail e-mail address, my AOL, yahoo, instant messenger address, and eventually, it seemed the logical choice for my website. Hence, it has become and now so written. “So Say we all!”
What is your favorite word?
Party, Who does’t like a party right? I have to admit this was not originally my favorite word in fact – as a teenager it often invoked an immense feeling of dread. But as I got older I realized that most of my parties were in the company of my closest friends and family members. To be at a party and see them enjoying each other’s company and laughing, I love that.
What is your least favorite word?
Diarrhea…. my close second of course is Vomit…. Both veeeerrrryyyy uncomfortable conditions for the human body to endure. Oh sure, a hot poker in the eye, or whacking a meat thermometer into your ear with a ball-peen hammer are indeed uncomfortable too.. But these are pretty much not natural experiences that are as just plain awe-full as Diarrhea.
What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
The use of technology both real and fictionally, to make the most complex and the very simple better and/or more beautiful.
What turns you off creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
The use of illogical thinking to make easy tasks more complex. The utter and absolute refusal to embrace the “K.I.S.S.” methodology. (Keep It Simple Stupid) Now, I know that might seem at odds with “What turns me on” but if you look around and or have ever worked in a corporate envirnment you know what I’m trying to say.
What sound or noise do you love?
The sound of my wife and children laughing at something I said or did… I cannot help but join in and laugh with them.
What sound or noise do you hate?
The sounds a woman makes as she sheds the tears of sadness.
What is your favorite curse word?
Fuck! I know I’m very “base.” But still – how can you not love a word that can be a Verb, a Noun, an Adverb, an Adjective, It can be pretty much used for everything and in any given situation..
What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
Wooden Boat Builder… I love boats in all of their myriad of varieties.. Sailboats, speed boats, work boats, tug boats, ferry boats, fishing boats, even simple row-boats.. I very often wish that I had the time and facilities to build boats.. not just “A” boat, but many boats..
What profession would you not like to do?
Sewer pipe inspector…. That’s pretty self explanatory considering my least favorite word.
If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
I wish I could keep you hear but you enriched too many people… So I gotta send you back to enrich some more….
What else interests you?
The simpler question is: what doesn’t interest me? As I said before – I love Boats.. But perhaps I could broaden my answer by saying anything made by man or woman. Be it both mechanical and natural. But Machinery, from the simple to the complex fascinates me. Planes, Trains, and Automobiles.
I like Motorcycles too. I love movies, and British Television, Computers, and Computer games.
I love Books, especially of the Sci-fi genre. Camping and now with a small RV to do it in. Cooking over an open flame. Woodworking in all of it’s complexities. I have adult A.D.D. so hence, pretty much everything will grab my attention.
