  1. lol – i’ve (literally) never thought about how often people misuse that word! Too funny… dammit – now I’m going to start noticing it everywhere. Don’t worry, i’ll call people on it!

  2. My real name sounds a little like ‘Mandy.’When I was 6 years old, I used to sing Barry Manilow’s song at the top of my lungs (with hairbrush as microphone) – inserting my own name, of course. While standing in front of full length mirror. Unashamed.

    Oh, to be young before the time of video cameras.
