For your next novel a character called soup wins the euro lottery, and has lots of exciting (but safe) adventures.

Or equally, a lil ol' sjb wins the Kentucky Lottery and saves most of it for a rainy day. The rest is spent traveling the seven seas and such. :)

Oh, I know! A compendium of lottery-winning tales! In which case, can there be about 4 or 12 stories featuring that lovable imp sjb? :P

Ainee, can I just ask - why do you tend to refer to yourself in the third person so often?

Yo mama's so fat that her circumference is bigger than πd.

Yo mama's so stupid, she fakes static noises to end face-to-face conversations

Yo mama's so old that her birth certificate is in Sanskrit.

Don't get lost in thought, you're a total stranger there.

Well you look like a professional blind date.

All that you are, you owe your parents. So send them 36p and you're even.

You think you're a wit. Well, you're half right.

Does anybody know what the oldest insult is?

Don't believe the others, you are fit to live with pigs.

You have delusions of adequacy.

Nothing wrong with you that reincarnation couldn't cure.

Why do people with closed minds insist on opening their mouths?

Interesting question.

I was wondering that too. I do have several Internet personas, and they do not always transfer clearly across one medium to another.

Basically, because in Second Life, where I have largely been living for the better part of my available time, for the last four years, I have been Ainee. In SL chat, as one's avatar name appears onscreen, it is standard to write thus: (amongst the Baroque Courts, at any rate, which is where Ainee mostly hangs out, with the odd unexpected excursion to a Lesbian Disco or a Male Strip Show, when Ainee's friends agree that she needs to have more joy in her life, SL and RL.)

Thus:

Ainee Kohime: giggles/pouts/stamps her diamond-heel on the parquetry floor/points at the fireworks/applauds/courtesies to the kind gentleman/blushes/struts her stuff/etc,

So the third person is the one which several ppl are watching onscreen, as one types and the others read. Commenting on the reactions of one's avatar onscreen is an easy step further across virtual realities,
so I do occasionally comment upon my typist's words, in visualising Ainee's reactions.

SL people (*ppl) aften find themselves saying 'LOL' out loud, rather than merely laughing aloud, so close is the transference. We agree on how helpful it would be to click on a person in the street/disco/ballroom, and find out all about them, insofar as they are all fantasy personas. Most of my RL/SL friends (ok, only four of them) who know me in RL, call me Ainee in RL too. I know several of them in their opposite gender avatars, too, which always creates an interesting interaction. Sometimes, I am a young man for a while, and he refers to Ainee as his Mother. Multilayered realities occurring. Easy peasy.

In Real Life, I currently prefer to be called Ainee, I like Ainee as a persona, and I have worked hard to create her, through adverse RL circumstances. Ainee is also the heroine of my novel, so it is easy for me to imagine her reaction in text.

I hope that all makes perfect sense.

Ainee (shaking her head in disbelief and delight at her typist, for managing such a long posting at this time of night, and wondering whether she ought to go to bed soon)

Ainee edits her post, reminding the typist that she is the one who oversees the typist's writing and behaviour, and does much of the editing as well. This QI Forum is a distinct improvement to SL, where chat is generally confined to a few lines.

Hell, Yorz, I dunno. I just like being Ainee, instead of who I used to be until I became a Widow. I am designing my own persona for RL, one that has to get through the next 50 years with relish, humour, kindness and hunger for what she just can't get. As happily as possible.

So there.

So many crimes are committed wherever in the world she happens to be, and yet nobody suspects her...
