    I get annoyed having to correct people sometimes.
    Starbucks is fun.
    Anyhow by the time I was 15 or 16 I kind of liked having a different name.
    I also think once Matt Damon became famous at least most people have heard the name and now can even spell it correctly. So that helps.
    I have met only five people with my name, one of them is female, and one also spells his differently (Daemon).
    So I think a unique or interesting name is overall a good thing, but not a weird or made-up name just to be weird or made-up.
    Some of those names with accent marks that do not affect pronunciation are probably my biggest pet peeves.

    Parents being clever can end up just being cruel though.

    Sometimes they do well though.
    For example, I like the name Aldrine.
    I don't know how many of you know the story behind it.
    His parents wanted to give him an American name. They named him after Buzz Aldrin. But they added the "e" at the end to make it "more American."
    I think that's a great story too!
    Was Damon that hard for people to get?

    I know two other Damons.

    My surname is spelt the Scottish old-country way, less common in the US. I've given countless spelling lessons in my time.

    I have to sweep the whole interior of the pool twice a day. Each time is a half hour upper body workout. I have flimsy little ukulele arms. Maybe I'll bulk up a bit.

    It was when I was a kid.
    Like I said, better now.
    But still get "Damien" and "David" a lot.

    Get one of those bubble-wrap type covers that float on the water. Does great for keeping dust/dirt and leaves out, and maintaining temp. We had one when we had a pool in California.

    This is for while the plaster cures. I only have to do it for a couple of weeks. Then the pool's cleaning system takes over.

    Worked today. Then loaded up my inventory in my van. Headed out tomorrow to the Fresno Jazz Festival to sell my clothing line over the weekend. It’s fun and my gf Judy goes with me. We have a lot of laughs and I come home with money. It’s a win/win.
    UWC; only those who have not been can rationalize not going.
