I was observing today that a majority of the women in positions of authority in my department have names which start with a K sound! Whether the name starts with a C or a K, the sound is the hard explosive K. (Caitlin vs Cynthia) Very strange.
So I started thinking, do our names affect how we interact with others? Are Barbies, Suzies and Vickys friendlier or more fun than Barbaras, Susans and Victorias? Are the Decimas and Perseidas of the world destined to be statisticians or research scientists?
What do you think? Do you think your name has made you what you are?
Big J thinks I usually dress conservatively and sometimes a little weirdly, and I wonder if it's because my name is more serious and not as common? I hope today's outfit is just conservative and not weird.
After yesterday's fiasco, even though it was a sunshiney day, I wore long-sleeves and a good thing too - it was still quite cold. This is the altered skirt again. The shirt is a bit big on me, but it was a gift and it has some nice lol-embroidery around the neck.
