For the Record

I know some people prefer a certain level of formality. All Toms are Thomases and all Nicks are Nicholases. However, I recommend that when you go formal, you make sure you have the name right. I have an Aunt Kris. If you called her Kristine, she probably wouldn't be terribly offended, but I bet she'd laugh. You see, her name is Kristan. Very different name.

So, just to clear up any confusion, my name is not short for Vivian, or Vivien, or Vivienne. Or any varietal thereof. Yes, it is short for something. No, I'm not going to tell you what it's short for. No, you will never guess. So just a nice casual Vivi, please. No formality required.

LOL! Now you're making me wanna guess (Vivecca?) Hee hee. It was great seeing you Saturday. And congrats again on finaling in the GH and getting in the antho! Too cool!

Ooh! Can we start making up names for you?

I would like to echo Shelli's sentiments. It was great seeing you on Saturday, and I'm so happy for you with all of your recent writing triumphs. Keeping my fingers crossed for GH...

Ooh, and on another note, you should come enter the "Welcome Back" contest on my site!

Vivi Andrews said...

LOL. Go ahead, make up names. I'd love to see what you can come up with. (Nope, not Vivecca.)

And allow me to second (or rather third) the sentiment that it was great to see you both on Saturday!
