moof's prattling

After talking to kaligrrrl, I've been thinking about writing up the 'standard moof operating guide'. It'd be different than a bio - whereas bios have things like 'I'm blood type O+' or 'my favorite chocolate is Scharffen Berger 70% cocoa' or stuff like that, this'd be more of a guide on how to interact with me. Examples would be "if super happy fun moof begins to glow, he's probably tired or embarassed" or "moof takes things very literally a lot of the time".

The thing is, while I can come up with a list of things that'd be useful for someone like me to know, I suspect they'd be somewhat at odds with what anyone else would categorize as useful.

Any suggestions?

Sadly, I don't think you'd be able to convince people to read the manual. Especially those people who need it the most.

well, you might be able to...but then they'd probably all start clamouring for you to read *their* manuals. the required reading for the human race could really start to pile up!
not to say this is a bad idea--makes me think about how often i need operating instructions just for my own self.

I think it sounds like a cool idea, and something people who are interested in you (as a friend or otherwise) should want to read.

It reminds me of something another friend did a little while ago, when she was newly-single: she had potential dates complete an "application" and answer a bunch of questions, some silly and some serious, she she could get to know them better.

My webpages have always been in manual form. It's just a little weird to write about yourself in the third person.

It did, however, make it easier for people to know how to handle me. When I was superbly stressed out, they knew to approach me with Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups in outstretched hands, take two steps back, wait for me to savor them, THEN ask me something.

You just induced a total early-morning Scharffen Berger run for me.

And I thank you for it!

w00!

Good chocolate. If you can find it, try Domori. It's got a rather high cacao content, but is very palatable and smooth. The translated English is clunky and awful; good to laugh at.

I, of course, think it's a great idea. I'll show you mine if you show me yours.
