Anonymous Tip: WTF, Peter?

A Review Series of Anonymous Tip, by Michael FarrisPp. 376-381This section is weirding me out. For one thing, the characters have suddenly decided they can't have sentences with things like clauses. Instead, every sentence must be short and choppy. More importantly, though, there's a lot of dialogue I simply can't imagine happening like this.As you will remember, Gordon is now dead, and Gwen has just remembered all those times Peter said he wished Gordon were dead. Peter does not … [Read more...]

Just Let Me Ride the Train in Peace

You know how you sometimes come upon articles you're sure must be satire? Yeah. That just happened. The article is titled How to Talk to a Woman Who Is Wearing Headphones, by self-proclaimed relationship expert Dan Bacon.Let me start by saying that I could write the content for that article with one word: Don't.

Anonymous Tip: A Seed is Planted

A Review Series of Anonymous Tip, by Michael FarrisPp. 371-376And, we're back! The thing many had predicted happened last week, but most of our cheery cast of characters don't know about it yet. They haven't even made it back to Spokane yet. The foursome didn't leave Seattle until nearly three o'clock. Yes really.
