Eventually, we'll take over the world. Vermont first.

Total number of Bridgets I've met in my lifetime, before moving to Middlebury: 5 at the most.

Total number of Bridgets I've met in Middlebury: 3, and they all spell their name just like mine.

Really? I know two other Bridgets (both in Utah) that spell their names like you. So you really ARE taking over the world!

Remember that for several years when you were small we had two adjoining neighbors named Bridget. One was Austrian (Brigita I think) & the other was an Irish Brigid--she's still our neighbor. They both got a kick out of having 3 Bridgets in a row.

I know a Jordanian girl, born to 2 Jordanian parents, whose first name is Bridget. As you may expect her name is totally butchered with pronunciations ranging from "barjeet" to "purjet"

that's nothing compared to my friend Paul, who is always being called "Bol" which translates to urine in Arabic

Huh. come to think of it, I think you are the only Bridget that I know! Its a great name though!

I have just returned from a marathon vacation and saw your new little one - she is just adorable. Congrats to you - I'm glad it all went well. I think her name is so perfect for your family - very beautiful - nice work :)

Hareega, funny you mention the butchered spelling because a Syrian friend of ours persists in calling me "Prejat." I just love the over-correction that is going on there.

"First Vermont". Second, the athletic world?

I've been surprised to see a few Bridgets popping up here and there as I've watched the Olympics, i.e. Bridget Sloan (USA, Indiana, gymnastics) & Brigitte Foster-Hylton (Jamaica, 100 m hurdles)

Glad you guys made it home. What an ordeal!
