Marguerite from Port Moresby turns the tables brilliantly: Hi Curtis. I'm taking your bait. I'm a girl (just finishing adolescence, at 27) who reads your blog. I've been shamelessly enjoying myself for the past week's worth of posts. Earlier this week, I said aloud to my partner, "I hope he spins off into an advice column (my favourite genre of trash)" and you did!! Hooray.
As maybe one of the few other female readers you have I am enjoying Uncle Yarv too.. Marguerite is 100% correct in her advice but most people have had an unfortunate rebound relationship or two in their life and they rarely work out. You are more intelligent and introspective than the average person too so I wouldn't be surprised if it takes a while to find someone worthy and who will appreciate you fully! (Hit me up in a year from now 😉)
Wait, Gray Mirror has female readers? Any of you want to get married? I am so desperate I am planning to go to an Astral Codex meetup next week.
"Just be gentle ... circling lol."
Oh boy. Does someone have a witty comment for this, because this sounds like an immature voice. Where'd uncle go?
Is it traditional wisdom to share your late wife's diaries with the public? I like what you have recently written. I'm just wondering how this fits with the idea of adhering to traditional wisdom at least as a default. It would seem to me that it does not unless you had her explicit permission to do so.
"substack circling" well maybe now I want a refund!
