In case anyone here does not yet know, Ken and I have bowed down. We're now on Facebook as "Pearce Story". Apparently, and I've tried hard -- well, I've tried as hard as I usually do with things like this, Facebook rejects the "&" and "and" usage as middle names or in first or last names. So we can't be "Pearce & Story", like we really are. We have to be Pearce Story, whoever that person is (also, if your name is Pearce Story, a thousand apologies). Phooey.

Anyway, if you're not already a Facebook friend and would like to be, "friend us". (Is that the cool way to say it?). I mean, we're really, really good at it. It's almost like our blogging. Here's a list of the fringe benefits we offer:

  • Between zero and few photos

  • Inane "experiences" we share with Facebook friends

  • Probably not many mutual friends

  • $50 "friendship fee" that Ken will mail to you personally so that we don't look like total losers... only partial - because that's important to us

For those of you who have not received your fee, please let Ken know in the comments. We'll get it right to you. The postal system these days...

[Pearce & Story not responsible as a writing partnership, or individually, for the non-payment of friendship fees as stated in the above.]

Well, I sent you a friend request, in that case! I actually ordered "Dorkman" earlier today--see this internet thing is working for you! :)

Double thanks, Sue!!

Hope you enjoy.

I wrote the good parts, and Rich wrote... well...

Rich said...

...the better parts.

Hey Sue!

Diabolical Genius said...

Didn't you become our friend before any money was offered, Wanda?

You were our inspiration!!

Sue said...

You guys really do finish each other's sentences, eh?

Rich said...


Trust me, and I mean this in all seriousness, no one can take what you think is a pretty darned good first draft of a chapter or short and cut it to pieces -- content, characterization, grammar, run the gamut -- until the whole paper looks like a mess of red blood like Ken can. It's very good on the self-esteem.

Yeah, I might have finished his sentence, but if I would have started the sentence, Ken would have deconstructed and reconstructed what I began until you never would have remembered what the first sentence was - but it would carry the same thought with additional expression... and, begrudgingly I'll admit, it'd be a better sentence.

And he does it all with that same wry grin.

They're tweaks, Richard. Tweaks.

Rich said...

It is like a mind-meld you guys write homogenously.... ummmm Yeahhh Right!

You can check my only video link of my 4 year old (Elizabeth) bowling... it is worth a watch: it should give you a few pointers the next time you choose to bowl.

God Bless

Oooohhh, it's Facebook backwards.

Have you been drinking?

You're in rare form today.

I'm heavily medicated, but it's not working.
