It's official. My name has been changed from Jason Michael Burrows to Jason Megatron Burrows, effective today.


Here's the story of my trip to the courthouse:


The Judge came in about 15 minutes late & apologized, then said that she'd be hearing name changes first, The first lady got up & changed her last name to honor her birth family. Next, a family went up, and the mom & dad both said that their daughter would like her name changed to Jessica, so the judge signed that order.


Then it was my turn... I walked to the front, where she had me raise my right hand to swear that I would tell the truth, whole truth & nothing but the truth. She asked if my name change was to defraud creditors, I said no. She asked if it would be detrimental to anyone else, I said no. She Then asked if I was indeed changing my middle name to that of my childhood hero, I smiled & said "Yes Ma'am." She said, "Then I do order & decree that your name be changed from Jason Michael Burrows to Jason Megatron Burrows" with a HUGE grin. There were quite a few chuckles from the courtroom... I was handed the paperwork & I split. =)

    This is quite old but though I am reading this now I am full of something both nostalgic and amazed.

    Complete win buddy. I'm sure you get it all the time but that must have been an awesome moment. Very cool how the Judge reacted.
