  1. I agree with the other commenters – I love this! I’ve read it four times already.

    Thank you so much; hard to believe any post of mine could prompt this, but how wonderful and flattering! πŸ™‚

  2. Yes, best not to mention the rude ones – haha – I love nicknames and pet names (just can’t help myself when it comes to shortening peoples names and stuff like that) πŸ™‚ Havagoodweekend Blu!

  3. Brilliant. When I was in my early 20s I went to a party dressed as Bette Davis from Whatever Happened To Baby Jane (it was a Hallowe’en Party) and I still have some people who call me Baby J. I’ll admit it was a pretty crazy makeover I had. I think that’s why it made such an impression. I even scared myself!
