Hey, let's play "Twenty Stultifying Questions"!

The methods by which tries to persuade me to pay for a gold membership are truly amusing sometimes. Here's part of a typically breathless e-mail they just sent me:

Someone from College of Santa Fe chose these Q&A answers to reveal details about life, love, family, or career:

Q: What are the indoor hobbies you enjoy? (Check all that apply)
A: Books; Computers

Q: What kind of car do you drive? (Check all that apply)
A: Luxury car; Sedan; Sports car

Q: What is your main source of current events?
A: Television

Q: How do you meet most of your friends? (Check all that apply)
A: Work

Q: How would you describe your current living arrangement?
A: Own a House

Think you know who this is?

I'm not sure, but I'm excited to find out! Even if it's not someone I actually remember, I feel like I know them already!

I think is still running software made by my former employer ... which means that this "feature" you saw is probably something Company X's marketing team is busy spinning as a perfect example of "providing a personalized customer experience."

I am so very, very glad I don't work there anymore.

Francis, sorry to say it, but that was me. Although I don't do or own any of those things, I've often dreamt about owning a sedan...and going to work.

Ha! I got the same one. At least now I know it was that shifty sumbitch Bartos, and I don't have to fork over the cake to find out WHO DRIVES A (GASP! QUIVER!) SEDAN!!!

Hey, Guys. Cheryl Odom here. Was reading my email and found an article by Francis linked in an Utne Reader post. Hope you're all doing well. Would love to know what you're up to.
