Dear John Hodgman: I Love You.

If I was to recommend a life handbook to people, it would be this book. So I will.

Dear people: You need a life handbook. You need useful information about ninjas and werewolfs and hobos. You need The Areas of My Expertise by John Hodgman.

Confidential to you people: Sometimes, when snorting at the hilarity, I feel like what I'm reading is somewhat familiar. And I start to wonder if Hodgman inserted those cameras that he denies placing in his books in the works of the authors that he greenlighted. And I wonder if I read those books. And I wonder if I did something embarrasing that those "non-existant" cameras might have captured on film.

Now, go visit the Hodgman Blog.

That is all.

You know what I find most endearing about our relationship, Ro? That both of us are continually surprised by the things that we have in common. If you and I haven't been in the same room at the same time with other people? I would start to wonder about things like "sanity" and "imaginary people" and "air quotes".

Roro said...

I've been wondering about that too, Melissa. I wonder if perhaps, when we ARE together in the same room, one of us is actually a hologram. Hmmm.

Melissa said...

That is an excellent notion to ponder. Especially as it makes one of us freaking JEM.

And bah for no HTML in comments. Because this illustration? So apt.

Stupid Blogger. More holograms in the comments!
