What are the haps my friends

February 24th, 2014: So far this year I have shared a meal with TWO former Olympians entirely by random chance, and in case it happens a third time in as many months I've looked up an etiquette thing that I will now share with you. When someone reveals that they've competed in the Olympics, are you allowed to say "...Did you win?"

The answer is no!

What you CAN say is "How did you do?" or "What was it like?" or "Wowowowow" but you should leave it to them to tell you if they won a medal. So now we're all ready to dine with elite-level athletes. (For the first one when he said he was in the Olympics I just said "Oh that must have been really really neat" and so if you want to share a meal with someone who sounds like he's touched in the head, I'm available.)

YOU LIKE TO READ: Probably, huh? Well GOOD NEWS: my book To Be or Not To Be (choose-your-own-path Hamlet!) is in the new Humble eBooks Bundle! Up to FIFTEEN books at a pay-what-you-want price, plus you support charity (and artists)! Definitely worth checking out, if you ask me.

NEW SHIRTS: As you may have noticed, I've spent the past all this year coming up with a new shirt design every month. Then I sold them for two weeks only! But now they're BACK... for two weeks only. Check them out! There are some PRETTY FRIGGIN' AWESOME shirts here. There's also a new one about dating, kinda?

One year ago today: you can also name your child "[chosen name] Loves Facebook", but only if you marry into the Facebooks
