can we talk about yeast? :)
hello all! it's C-A-N-D-I-D-A from the show. :hiya
wow, after reading some of the posts, i have to say actually i really like my name! (mind u, my father is a MEDICAL doctor btw, so the "scientificly unfriendly irony" of me being named such is all the more heightened!) however, for the less linear-ly inclined, i was actually named after a great aunt who passed away several days before i was born. my mother said that she was one of the most illumination-filled women she has ever met, & felt it fortuitous to name her brand new baby after someone with such love & spirit. :) i consider having her namesake an honor, and not a 'misfortune' at all.
the name is actually a thousands of years old spanish name, existing long before "candida albicans' was coined, i'm sure. :)
then again there are many other references, i.e. the book "candide" by voltaire, the play "candida", and oh yes, the tony orlando song! (thanks "did it again", wow! :)
anyway, thanks for all the "spirited" replies, & hope you all continue to enjoy the show!
peace and blessings,
