We had a set of married friends when I was first starting out- both named Terry Jensen. They had a son, and what's his name? Terry! (At least they called him TJ)
Have a great weekend, Miss C!

"Would you take on your new husband's last name? What if you already have the same first name?"

I read that as 'what if you already have the same first name as his last name?' and was ready to read about women with names like "Terry Terry' or "Madison Madison".

A most excellent set of links today, many of them had links at the end to great stories too.

My feeling old moment:

I was listening to an interview with an up-and-coming music band and they were complaining about music festivals. "All these men get up and start dancing. And they're, like, 35!"

I was 35. And I still loved dancing. Not after that though.
