I've seen a lot of people get Formspring accounts. Outside of the fact that I think there's no 'demand' for such a thing from me, heh, to be honest I'd be afraid the anonymity would just enable people to say nasty things to me. I don't think I have any fandom enemies but you never know. (...Was maybe picked on a few too many times. /o\)

However, this seemed potentially fun. I'll just leave it open with comments screened, just in case. If you have a comment/question, you can indicate if you'd prefer to keep your name anon or not.

What kind of topics/entries would you like to see me posting about? Any particular questions you've always wanted to ask me but have resisted because the answer would be a huge essay? Ever want to wind me up and watch me go on a particular topic? Anything you've heard me say "I should write that entry about X I've been meaning to write" and have been patiently waiting for?

My kid made himself a formspring account and posted it on his facebook.

I asked him questions. Nothing horrible, just like, "what color is sunshine?" and "what would induce you to attend a full evening of polka music." The questions are anonymous, so when he answers them, it just comes up and question and answer.

The look on his face when I pointed out that his answer to the latter (I wouldn't do that even if the person asking this blew me) was really kinda alarming if one knew the asker was his mother? Was PRICELESS. I wasn't, mind, telling him that it was evil and bad to say what he said at all because I'm clear on how teenagers totally say such things in the context of how they talk to each other and by and large know better than to say them, like, in class or something, though I did note that people like my mother (and if he were looking for a job, possibly an employer) can see his answers too, so it was a good object lesson in internet privacy and thoughtfulness about who can see what you say.


Still, yes, priceless expression.

(edit: okay to unscreen, or not--your call)

I unscreened this because you said it was okay and I found it hilarious! I really enjoy your tales of dealing with your boys.
