    I was all about Luis and Sheridan too. That’s pretty much all I remember.

    I only started watching Passions because I girl I went to high school with was on it. And then I got secretly hooked when my freshman year roommate would watch it twice a day (yes, the same episode, in case she missed something).

    Agreed. And, do you think Kit Harrington really has the ‘older boss’ vibe? Aside from being amazing to look at, I don’t think he’s quite old enough. But maybe because he’s younger than me?

    I scattered once. It didn’t end well. For some reason, rather than fully scattering, I ended up in a closet. With 2 Megans, who hated each other. The bickered the whole time. Finally, I got sick of waiting and decided to risk it. I went back out to the party where all the 21+ folks were drinking. They had forgotten us younger folks had scattered and that they’d promised to let us know when the coast was clear. And that the cops had come for the party next door…

    And how come no one is talking about the Rhodes Caramel Rolls? Those sound amazing!

    @MrMid – I was doing the same thing all day (cleaning the house and what not) and I feel I’ve been missing out on pure gold!

    Oh, and I’m a statistician, so those of you who want numbers crunched, I’m your person! Even if it’s not a true random sample, I have my ways to calculate it so it’s a representative result 🙂

    On a related note, I too was on the honor roll/dean’s list/every academic honor list possible.

    @Amanda – you should totally change it to Dalek!

    My friend’s have a kid they named Dalek.  They are both big nerds, but the mom had never seen Doctor Who.  The dad has a name similar to Dalek, and convinced his wife that they were naming the kid after him (their daughter has a name similar to her mom’s).  I think the kid was about 5 when his mom figured out that he was named after a race of killer robots.  Oh, and he totally lives up to his namesakes 🙂

    My married name is very unusual.  All of the people with this last name in my state are related.  And there are maybe 20 or so entries in the phone book, all of them very closely related to my husband.  So much so that when I come across someone with the same last name, they often demand to know who I’m married to since we must be related.  They’re usually first or second cousins to my husband.

     

    I got married at a nice point in my career. I had just changed jobs and I was about to start grad school.  Since I work in a career where publishing is important, it did influence my decision to change my name.  My maiden name was quite common, and if you do a Google (or PubMed) search for my maiden name and first initial, there are about a million hits.  However, search me by my married name and first initial, and it’s just me.  However, if I had started publishing under Othy Maiden, I probably would have kept it, at least professionally.

     

    I did keep both my middle and maiden name as my new last name.  So now I’m legally Othy Middle Maiden Married.  I am really glad I kept my Maiden somewhere in my legal name, because my family sometimes forgets that I changed it.  I’ve been married for 6 years now, and I still get checks written to Othy Maiden.  My 88 year old grandma gets a pass, but not my father.  But because my maiden is recorded on my bank account, it’s really not a big deal to cash those checks.

    I came from the Frisky, but found TF via many many friends on facebook regularly posting articles.
