Frequently Asked Questions

Check it out—I have an FAQ* page now! You can get there from the previous sentence or from the “FAQ” tab at the top of the page. I’m counting it as my post this week because I’m a slacker and didn’t draw anything.

Trivia: People don’t actually ask me questions about this blog. These are questions that I have imagined people asking, though, and my personal paranoia thus makes most of them sound somewhat accusatory. You can think of the responses less as “answers” and more as attempts to justify myself.

Feel free to leave your own questions in the comments. I will try to answer them in at least mildly informative and/or amusing ways.

* Those of you who pronounce it “fak” may now twitch and mentally substitute “a” for “an.” You’re welcome.


  1. Or we could just assume that your English degree didn't instruct you on the finer points of indefinite article usage...

  2. Nahh, then I'll just whip out my Linguistics minor, which basically says that language is ever-changing and beautiful and we should accept and note how people use it. The great thing is how I then reapply my prescriptive English degree so that the freedom of grammar is limited to me.

  3. Hmmm... real questions for your FAQ section:

    How does your mother feel about your blogging?

    What author most inspired your inspiring writing?

    What Sesame Street character most deeply affected your soul in early childhood such that you grew into a whimsical, profound, and... unique individual?
