Thank you for this, Megan! It was for all these reasons that I insisted on a co-ed baby shower, and it couldn't have been more excellent. I even had a co-ed bachelorette party.
Also, I don't understand the defensiveness among some commenters about name-changing. Why do you need validation for having made the completely mainstream, socially acceptable choice to take your husband's name?
@Nicole Cliffe What about the voice of Geddy Lee? How did it get so high? I wonder if he speaks like an ordinary guy?
David Grann: Greatest journalist of all time? Discuss.

I really think #41 is the most special of all. "Person." It has a certain Zen bluntness that I admire. Any relation to Dick, I wonder?

@parallel-lines Respectfully disagree about the OXO mandoline! I have one that can't slice a durn thing. I finally got OXO to send me a replacement and that one doesn't work either. I've become an evangelist for a sharp knife and a steady hand.
@JanieS Wait, I thought you couldn't wash away all the arsenic?? Bring me back my precious carbs!
