An advantage to Facebook and Scribophile is the ability to play weird games that would be much less fun face to face. Imagine getting out lists of silly words, one for each letter of the alphabet and one for each month of the year, and having your friends at a party tell you what their porn star name would be, based on the month they were born and the first letter of their last name.

I don’t expect to talk about the concept of an innate ability to select the best styles and decorations, but I did want to briefly explore how that got to be. Have you tasted the latest shoes?

I am a huge fan, in many ways, of John Scalzi. I love how often he plays with my brain by not specifying the gender of someone at first, and because they are the captain or the doctor, my conditioned brain is thinking male.
