Teacher, she copied me!
Juxt thought I would alert everyone to the fact that the band "The Gossip", sometimex writex their name goxxip. Their webxite uxex a combo of "gossip" and "goxxip" and even says "linxxx".
More newx to come later.
Enjoy the three-day weekend, for thoxe that have one (or are pretending they do).

Name: Tina X. Wexler
Location: Xcarxdale, NY, UXA
Why you joined: Becauxe I created it. Therefore, I thought I xhould join too. nd procraxtination. And for the good of humankind. Cauxe we know thix ix the moxt important cauxe out there, and it will cure world hunger.
Hey, let'x have a bake xale! :)
5 Favorite bookx/authorx: Dublinerx (Jamex Joyce) The Hunting of the Xnark (Lewix Carroll) Atonement (Ian McEwan) The Xecret Hixtory ( Donna Tartt) The Poixonwood Bible (Barbara Kingxolver) There are many more, but thoxe are the only thingx I can think of right now.
5 favorite letterx (one of them better be x!): X!!!!!!!!!!! Z, Q, J, and the hebrew letter tet (but I can't xeem to poxt it here....I'll try later)
5 leaxt favorite letterx: s (but only cauxe itx way overuxed. I uxed to like it....xo xad)I don't really hate a lot of other letterx, but : b, v, w, c
Why ix x xo cool?: becauxe...itx juxt x! Itx a very negelected letter whick ix uxed for xo many bad thingx, like xignx for poixon, or wrong anxwerx on textx...it needx people to love it for what it ix...a cool xounding letter and one of the bext phoenetic xoundx. It needx to be held and coddled and loved.
Mixcellaneoux: Dan axed if we xay the x or juxt write wordx with it....I think pronouncing the x would be a cool thing, but in xome placex it may be hard, in wordx like "thingx" etc. But maybe we xhould all try it. I would imagine it would require a lot of hacking and xpitting.
I forgot to axk what your favorite word ix that beginx with x..... mine ix xanadu. it means an idyllic or luxurioux place. I think itx alxo an actual place. Here'x a poem by Coleridge: http://etext.lib.virginia.edu/stc/Coleridge/poems/Kubla_Khan.html

Age: 17...18 on the Idex of March
Location: Xcarxdale, NY
Why you joined: Becauxe "x" ix xuch an interexting letter, and "s" ix completely boring. Alxo, "x" ix worth 8 pointx in Xcrabble, while "s" ix worth only 1, and thix ix an inxanely clever way to create more interexting xcrabble wordx with "x."
5 Favorite bookx/authorx: Cat'x Cradle (Kurt Vonnegut), To the Lighthouxe (Virginia Woolf), The Great Gatxby (F. Xcott Fitzgerald), Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance (Robert Pirxig), Catcher in the Rye (JD Xalinger)
5 favorite letterx (one of them better be x!): X!!, w, j, i, f (only in xcript...fx are fun to write)
5 leaxt favorite letterx: s (BOO!! HIXX!!), v, r, a, k
Why ix x xo cool?: Becauxe it'x unique and interexting. "X" ix never boring like "s" ix!
Mixcellaneoux: Trying to replace every "s" with an "x" in my typing ix very challenging; however, I muxt unlearn the old, backwardx way of xpelling and embrace the uxe of x!
Oh, we alxo need to remove every mood containing "s" from the lixt of optionx, if that'x poxxible. I am amuxed, not amu*ed. Current Mood: amuxed
