Writing about an entry you don't have permission to view
Speaking of names and getting them right, I do get mildly irritated if people forget that my name is a palindrome (there aren't many others who can claim this: Anna, Otto are the only others that spring to mind) and leave off the last 'h' when spelling it. I once had a christmas card addressed to 'Hanner', which was quite amusing, a mistake quickly forgiven! It’s a difficult name to shorten but close friends have been known to shorten to 'Han' or extend to ‘Hanrahan’, the former of which does come in handy when texting.
Come to think of it, that would have been a good alternative to 'Hannah’s Handbag' but that has sort of stuck so I'll have to make use of 'Palindromic ' another time.
