thursday threesome

April 21, 2005

onesome: domain–hypothetically, if you could own any domain name you wanted, what would it be and why? http://www.cady.com; i’m completely unoriginal 🙂

twosome: name– Are you called by something other than your legal name? if not, have you ever had a nickname? or done something weird with your name, to try and stand out? like an odd spelling or a slightly different pronunciation? or just flat out wanted to change your name? to what? my legal name is cadence, but everyone calls me cady. i’ve never wanted to change my name. i like its uniqueness.

threesome: renewal–do you have any magazine or other subscription that is an absolute ‘must renew’ whenever you get the notice? writer’s digest. enough said.
