THEY WERE A LIFETIME TOGETHER
Because I’m sure I’ll need another one at some point.
Remember, this is for posterity. So choose wisely.
I would have went for “Hipsters, Flipsters, and Finger-Poppin’ Daddies” Myself followed up by another circle called “Knock me your lobes”
Just for the record; I’m no hipster, emo, or mac user.
Thank god I’m a Mac user then… :)
I went with OH SHIT BEES!, but my second choice would have been “Your mom. All your moms. And some dads.” Because I like unity.
How about “Mistaken for Sock Monkey Puppets”
I think the correct choice is obviously “OH SHIT BEES”.
How many of these were going to be the name of your next band, but you felt too many was too many? ;)
After the “posterity” line I was sad that “THE PIT. . . OF DESPAIR!” wasn’t a choice.
All of the above.
How could it be otherwise?
I’m told that it’s possible to encircle, and possibly to send updates by email to, people who don’t actually have Google+ accounts themselves.
If that’s the case, a “People without Google+ accounts I want to share stuff with” circle might actually be useful in some cases.
I went with “I Stand Over Your Bed While You Sleep”. This says nothing – NOTHING – about me as a person, and frankly I’m offended by the implication.
Now why don’t you take a nap?
Amazed there isn’t an option for ‘BrainPals’…
So, where’s “Kilted Bastards” and “Fecal Occult Blood Reign” (the name of my next Norwegian death metal band)?
Where is “Scalzi’s Future World Domination Army”?
No ‘Hong Kong Cavaliers’??? no ‘blue blaze irregulars’???
I dont know who you are anymore….
Your next 5 G+ circles: utlanning, framling, raman, varelse, djur.
You should call it “Fuzzy Nation.”
“Unicorns, Pegasi, and Kittens”
Just make sure to invite Wil Wheaton.
I would have picked “Circle of Hell”, but it isn’t there. Sigh.
Inadvertantly Tasted is the name of my Fine Young Cannibals cover band
I think “OH SHIT BEES!” Is a better name for a rock-band than a G+ circle.
“My next band is named after one of these people”
I would have gone with “Hate mail: Passing grades” or “Traded laptop for iPad”.
I went with awkward pity circle because I figured that’s where those of us who are following you on google+ but you don’t know from adam would fit… (But I do agree with the poster above that “Scalzi’s World Domination Army” probably would have won if it was an option)
Badger Enthusiasts? Is it even legal for an Ohioan to associate with such company?
Hrmm…I find an urge to suggest naming a circle “Those Who Shall Not Be Named” or “Those Who Shall Not Be Categorized” strikes me….
I kind of like: “Scalzi’s Scat”.
I totally am a badger enthusiast. From Tummeler to Lord Brocktree to Trufflehunter. Go Badgers!
I just found out yesterday that you can mail live bees.
I’m never opening another package again.
Angry Tapirs and other concerns.
And, thanks to the Fox blowup in England, I now know what a ‘reverse ferret’ is.
No, not that, and get your mind out of the gutter.
“I Stand Over Your Bed While You Sleep” strikes me as a great name for a high school-aged emo band whose members all like to cosplay as Edward Cullen. And if the thought of such a band existing doesn’t give you at least one sleepless night of terror with every light in the house on, then you, my friend, are a braver person than I.
“OH SHIT BEES” Needs some clarifying punctuation. Is it “OH, SHIT! BEES!” as if you were afraid of some bees or maybe “OH, SHIT BEES!” with the imperative that these people should defecate bees?
Badger enthusiasts, solely as it reminded me of my favorite badger related resource: How to install Linux on a Dead Badger http://www.strangehorizons.com/2004/20040405/badger.shtml
lfturovich @21: I would have picked “Circle of Hell”, but it isn’t there. Sigh.
That would be a pain to keep track of, as there would have to be nine of them.
Kevin, you missed the possibility that these are shit bees (we have honey bees, why not shit bees). Much as someone might say “Oh! Kittens!” or “Oh! Pie!”, our Fearless Leader, presumably, says “Oh! Shit bees!”.
Can someone explain to me why inadvertent is a word and advertent is not? This just seems wrong to me.
Hi John – been reading your site for some time now, first time commenting. Now this is totally off the subject of your post… but I’m wondering if you know what your schedule is for Renovation in Aug. Trying to figure out what day my husband and I should go…
@35 , 38.
I had already assumed the comma was between the first and second words and that (as usual) Scalzi was toying with us. In this case, a not-so-subtle reference to Kevin Smith, Dogma and the Shit Demon. Damn you, Scalzi!! We have all been spontaneously lumped in with the rest of the demons (as he types this on a Mac).
“Those who forgot to add the thickener.”
Someday I’ll get an invite.
I Stand Over Your Bed While You Sleep
Where’s “Possessed Of Breathtaking Political Insights That You Must Listen To”?
I actually have a circle called “Jimmy Hats,” in case it does turn into Facebook and I keep getting added by people I don’t really like but don’t want to start drama with
Inadvertantly tasted stirs the imagination. Though not really in a good way.
Oh, how I hope I make it into the “Awkward Pity Circle”!
Ora @36 – I howled. My Linux loving co-workers are getting a surprise when I get back from vacation.
All caps wins every time.
Of course, now I want a t shirt that reads “Bisexual. Not confused, just opportunistic.”
um… how about those who are in the
there has to be a few in that circle….
AlanM@38: why not shit bees
Anyone who has ever experienced the summertime treat that was the outhouses of Ohio’s state parks will testify that there are, indeed, shit bees. They bear a strong resemblance to yellow jackets.
Go! Make that shirt!
I’m shocked that no one picked Wearers of Jaunty White Hats.
Jacki@54: Pshaw. Of course no one picked it. The jaunty white hat meme has been done to death! It’s like, SO last week.
I picked Badger Enthusiasts.
You have to ask why? It’s Badgers, of course! And we’re Enthusiastic about them.
(John, I know I just follow you on G+, but can I be in the Badger Enthusiast circle? Please???)
They’re putting beavers on the hit list in S. Am.
Awkward pity circle is totally going to be the name of my next band!
… or is it my middle name? I forget.
So. . .”Multivoting since I was six” is not an option? Oh, Foo. *frwn*
That is two votes now for “NB,JO” btw. . .
Would “OH SHIT BEES” be the appropriate circle to use for members of Goonswarm?
OH SHIT BEES! is my choice, but OH SHIT GIANT JAPANESE HORNETS! is closer to home.
(Google them if you’re looking for a wee bit o’ nightmare fuel.)
As a Kingdom of Loathing addict, one answer here pretty much stood out for me.
I think “Minions” would be more accurate…
Statistics John! Reminds me of one of my college courses. C
