Halfway There

Since it is taking me a ridiculously long time to come up with questions, I've decided to post them as I finish them (I apologize in advance for how lame they are). So, Phantom Scribbler and Scrivener, you're up:

Madame Scribbler:

1. Your commenting pixies are very entertaining. Do you know any of them in real life?

2. What's your biggest challenge in being a stay-at-home mom?

3. A fellow copyeditor, I see (clap clap!). What's your favorite annoying-author/client anecdote?

4. Are there currently any books in your house that are making your computer jealous?

5. Would you willingly trade any aspect of your current life for any aspect of any time during your past? Why or why not?


1. In what ways has REM jumped or not jumped the shark?

2. How goes the dissertation?

3. How does the academic infighting so hilariously depicted in Straight Man compare to real life in the ivory tower?

4. How do you choose the books to cover each semester in the classes you teach?

5. Say you had to choose one thing about yourself to change. What would it be (and no, not your hair color, since you've already done that!)?
