Gwyn, Gwinnie Pig is insulting on the surface, but on the other hand it is sort of sweet! (Though as a kid I'd have hated it too.)

Phebe BeBee never would occur to me, but I've called you Phebele now and then and I'm not even a brother.

Kvell away. You have every reason to be proud. Maybe your daughter will be the answer to effectuate the necessary changes that nursing home facilities so desperately need. Something I have not seen in over 50 years of watching this.

Yup, I was called Phebe BeeBee by several of my parents' friends.

My friends called me Phebes, though when I broke my leg in 5th grade I became Feebles for the rest of the school year.

Family called me Phebele - a few brothers still call me that sometimes.

Oh wonderful to hear about Pammy's 15 minutes of glory! I'm sure she'll get a great job!

I am on Facebook... do you WANT me to friend you? Actually I spend more time on SparkPeople than I do on Facebook. I have it kinda locked down and you may have to look for it as MSDRPEPPER because I got on Facebook in the early years before Facebook stopped allowing accounts based on nicknames (none of my friends were on there at first, so for like 3-5 years I never could find any of my friends or family because they were not yet on FB.).

As for Pammy vs Pamela - my sister was Elizabeth, but Grandma said she was too small to be "Elizabeth", so she pronounced my sister as "Betsy". So she was Betsy all her life until she moved to California to go to college. She immediately took up "Elizabeth" as her preferred name - even made her other KS friends who knew her have to change and call her Elizabeth. After she finished college and had been working a few years, she met her husband-to-be - and as soon as he found out her nickname had been Betsy, he refused to call her Elizabeth - so she's back to being Betsy. But her business card is complicated... ' Elizabeth "Betsy" (middle initial)(last name) '...

and Phoebe - all the Phoebe's I ever knew were just "Phoebe", but my mom said when she was a kid, she had one of those sock monkeys and she named it "Phoebe Be BeeBee" ...

Poor monkey!


She girds herself with strength, And strengthens her arms.
Proverbs 31:17

I still don't get it. Maybe because I don't do facebook I don't see a challenge there. It's cool. I've not understood one or two other things in my life in addition to a couple of old jokes that one could not help hearing several times and I didn't get them each time.

Job prospects and jobs are not the same thing. A distant cousin thinks she has an "in" with a couple of DC think thanks. Should result in interviews anyway.

Cousin Susie always was sort of the Laurie Partridge of our family. Same hair; same allure.

Thank you everyone. Already the 15 mnutes of fame as yielded a new job prospect or two. If we were Facebook friends, you would know this.

People sometimes ask me if Phebe is short for something. Some names just end up sounding like a diminutive. (I keep wanting to tell them my full name is Phebiola or Phebarino or something equally bizarre.)

Another Eisner in the media. Two down, two to go.

Her name, her choice. If she's good at what she does, the diminutive will not get in her way. I don't know whether it's a childhood nickname or her formal name, but a woman named "Mikie" was just elected to the House of Reps.

No. My grandmother thought, or maintained the deception, we all were related. It's not true.

In graduate school as a starving student, I perpetrated a ruse on ticket-taking gate agents at Disney World, day after day. It always ended the same way "OK. I guess I'll pay. When I see Uncle Mike tonight, he'll ask who I was dealing with. So what is your name?"

Agent: "Can you prove this any other way?"

Me: "A driver's license? Here..."

In we went for free. Day after day...
