Blog question of the Week + a little weekend preview

First, the quickly - WEEKEND PREVIEW!

 My Sailor and I have had an AWESOME weekend. I ended up getting Saturday off of rehearsal for Into The Woods. We spent most of the day kicking around a mall in Seattle. I picked up new running shoes which were sorely needed and will no doubt be featured later.  We also picked up some Magic Cards and the Zombies board game. Once we got home, we played our new boardgames, but more on that in a later post.


Comes from The Less Than Domestic Goddess. "Do you like your name?"

I'll say that I'm used to my name - finally - after 30+ years. I was named after the Bionic Woman. In Washington, where most of the population speaks English, my name has proven to be far less of a headache, though it's misspelled on the regular. In my native land of Southern California, where a large portion of the population speaks Spanish, my name was FAR more problematic.

More than once I've been mistaken for a hispanic or Mexican guy just by people reading my name.

That's when the J came in. Instead of trying to correct people, I decided to just use my initial. A few old friends and family members still call me by my full name, but for the most part, "J" is what I'm known by.

On the upside, it's a unique name among people born in the 1980's especially women.
I can count on one hand the number of times I've another gal in my age bracket with my name.

However, I will NEVER name my child after a TV character.
