Ego stroking

One of the wonderful things about having been active online for a long time is that if you type your name to a search engine, you come up with all sorts of stuff… I was “spying” (that's what it felt like) on other people earlier, and eventually typed in my own name. I found lots of BME stuff, a zillion little interviews and some long ones, name dropping all over, stuff on exotic cars, Deloreans, monster trucks, kit cars, and even old video games I wrote when I was a kid. But I found a really nice article I'd never seen before. I met with this writer a few months after I moved back to Toronto from Philadelphia. Anyway, if you could care less, click here.

Liz Langley was very nice — one of the things we talked about was tongue piercing. This was a time when I'd recently gotten some bad chips in my teeth and I was very anti-tongue piercing. I love this quote from her article:

"[Shannon's] advice... if you want to restyle your tongue, get it split instead of pierced. After awhile that metal clacking against your tooth will break it, leaving you looking like a hillbilly, which for some is worse than looking like a lizard."

It's true… I haven't really seen many people actively seeking a hillbilly transformation! Anyway, I just sent her a thank you note… It seriously is one of the nicest things anyone has ever published about me.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
