I’m in the Guardian’s “Status Update” Feature Today

And they say nice things about me in the intro section, which was kind of them. The best part (for me)? The picture of me they use to accompany the piece was taken by my daughter, who can now say her photo work has been published in the Guardian. That’s not bad for 14.

In any event, a fun little interview (in the form of survey questions), so check it out.

Curious: Why not ask them to properly credit her instead of a “courtesy of…”? Legal thing because of her age or more their editorial policy of whomever literally gives them the pic?

Otherwise, you have a buddy in the “I don’t drink” club. Never felt the need to drink so I just don’t. Kinda like never having the “get drunk” craving. I’d much rather have a glass of O.J.

Heh – wonder how that bunch of Chee-Tos stained morbidly obese self-loathing closet cases living in their Mom’s basement feel, is a more appropriate sentiment, @MVS! Clearly, the misnamed “Dudebro” is so turned on by the sight of Scalzi in a Victorian gown that he can hardly contain his tumescent desires any longer – next he’ll be serenading this blog with REO Speedwagon’s “Can’t Fight This Feeling”

Okay…. Who else just read that and went, “Ewww!”?

We loves us some comments!

Seriously, I think you’d miss us if you turned them off completely.

I just drove my loved one to SFO, so she can go back to Ohio. (“But my city was dead”.) So the Cleveland area has an awesome artist again.

– Google “Vox Day”, but be careful about visiting his site. If you do, you should put your router through the dishwasher to get the stupid out. It may pay you to reformat your hard drive, set it on fire, seal it in a lead casket and fire it into the Sun, too. That stuff is hard to remove.-
