SELF-DEFENSE, n. Fudging the truth for your own benefits.
The first punch but not the first move.
About Bookworm aka Tok'ra aka Haras Pikachu Pez: Bookworm is the first born of Dddragon's daughters by a foot. The (comparatively) good twin has proven that the gene for hectic is dominant and is a trumpet player, shakespearean actress, international purveyor of peace, Dance Dance Revolution prodigy, Stargate fan and impending driver, God help us all. Poor Dddragon. Poor, poor Dddragon. Bookworm's appearance here marks an important point in the history of Waking Ambrose. As of now, each and every blogging Pez has now graced this site as a Wednesday Guest (except maybe one. I'll have to check.)
Bookworm, as her name suggests, is a thoughtful and curious sort. For a long time, the main feature on her blog, The Bookworm's Nook was a weekly series in which she would describe a situation from her classes and/or life, invoke a good quote by a great mind on the topic, and ask her readers for their opinions. These features always provoked an interesting discussion. At other times her site, like her sister, Goa'uld's, has been a place for video game reviews, book reviews, and a partial diary. Oh, and I'm sure she'll be delighted for me to point out that you can read about (some of) her weird habits, here. Just as a teaser, the child has a shoelace fetish.
Not surprisingly, given her lineage, Bookworm is a funny, considerate, brainy, talented and insightful young person. None of which will protect you from door dents if you park your car on the street in South-Central Pennsylvania about 6 months hence. Remember, kids, don't drill and drive.
And on Tok'ra's day, too.
How to be a future guest on this site: Just send an email to dpascover at mac dot com. On a future Wednesday, after posting that week's guest, I'll send you an email with a word to define. You'll be expected to return your definition along with a graphic representing either your definition or yourself by the following Saturday. The only rules are no profanity and no novels, please. And whatever I make up at the last minute.
I will be contacting previous guests who regularly comment here to repeat in no particular order. Previous guests who haven't been much heard from since their guest post should recontact if they would like to repeat.
