|« More Recycling: More Formspring||Thanks for the Waste of Postage »|
The deal: I messed about with Formspring.me for awhile, but the server kept going down, plus some of the site doesn't display right in Firefox, so I gave up on it. But there's decent content there and I hate to see it go to waste, so this is part of my recycling program. Save the earth!*)
Q: How can you mend a broken heart?
A: There are many theories about this. Some believe that the best unguent is time itself, applied liberally. Others-- those who have spent time studying at medical institutions-- have a variety of clamps to apply, sutures to stitch, shunts to place... but I personally think the best answer is to turn the question on the questioner and say "What do you have against broken hearts, Mac? Some of my best friends are broken hearts!" And it's true. We have a club. We keep scrap books of stuff stolen from ex-lovers. We write poetry in anonymous weblogs. Perhaps you've read our work?
Q: Where'd the cheese go?
A: The anonymity that this website affords makes the asking of clarifying questions difficult, but based on my years of problem-solving, I would guess that you are either a mouse or a middle-manager. If the former is true, then I would remind you that as an omnivore, there's no reason to limit your diet to cheese. It's negative media stereotypes that convince you that cheese is a staple of your diet-- and it is not. You can eat fruits, grasses, insects, seeds, corn, grains... the world is your oyster. Go eat an oyster. If, alternately, you are a middle manager, then to find the cheese, you should find an underling and assign them the task of locating it. Then go back to checking your email. If you are a cheese with a broken heart, looking for a beloved and now lost fellow cheese, please see our earlier response regarding broken hearts.
*Note: Formspring.me is a service that allows you to set up an account where people can ask you anonymous questions. It does have a certain appeal, but does not work well. Kinda like Twitter. But nowhere near as popular.
