You're welcome. i never really know what to say here. half the time i'm tempted to sell myself like i was some kind of car, only ... then ... how would a car be typing. whatever. anyways. look, we all know why we're here. we're either alone, or shy, or bored, or weird, or busy or possibly some awful combination of all of those things, in which case, welcome to the internet! we have everything, including -so i am told- cake.
but that only gets you so far. you can't date someone through the internet. well, no, that's not true. with skype and stuff .... i'll leave that to your imagination. anyways. like i was saying. dating in real life, outside the four walls of your home and not separated by the fourth wall that's slowly but turning us all into Anonymous whether we know it or not ... that's the fun part. going out and doing something that's either fun or awful and then going back to your friends and saying 'so, well, it started out nice, but then she said this thing about wearing people's faces ... yeah, no, i totally stayed for desert, but then i left'... or 'it was awesome. we had a lot of fun and then we robbed a bank together, so you could say things are getting kind of serious'.
also, and this is very important:
i am the only tattooed, whiskey drinking published science fiction author you're ever gonna meet. yeah. i'm that cool
