    So, have started being creative with the truth, when Starbucks ask what my name is (To write on my cup). Today, down by the Embankment, i was Octavius.

    Not only was it fun to reply "Octavius," but also to sit there sipping coffee out of an Octavius cup.

    Am i alone in this? Is it legal?!

    You can call yourself whatever you want but have to disclose to police if asked.

    Up until the eighties (?) it was legal to open a bank account in any name.

    My landlord when at Uni was Arthur Pendragon.

    Why is it only Starbucks that does this? You don't get MacDonald's writing your name on a french fry.

    *Edit - I am not a loon.

    it's not just starwars that does it...
    truth be known, i don't ever shop there, i make better coffee in my kitchen...
    however,
    i frequent a marina cafe here on the lake called stumpy's bar and grill...
    you put yer order in at the door, go fetch yer own drink from the fountain, and stake out a spot near the water to watch the ducks and the carp fight over the junk folks throw in...
    you give yer name to the lady at the register who takes yer order...
    the longhair short order cook doing the tacos and shrimp and fish, hollars yer name as loud as he can when yer munchies are ready...
    he is impossible to understand, for many reasons i assume, so i like the name zappa because it's easy to distinguish...
    tuesdays are two dollar taco nights...
    *forrest gump voice* i could eat about a million of these...

    Haha! I do the same, only I use names of countries.

    Last week, when they asked my name I said "Argentina" and when they called my name, some smart ass in the crowd said "We won't cry for you". ๐Ÿ™‚
