the letter c: it's not just for cookie anymore

Yes, if you take this quick quiz over on Hey Ya! Jeff's* blog, the answer is indeed C. (Long story.) Meanwhile, a weird thing about Hey Ya! Jeff's blog lately is that he keeps writing these posts about how he's never had a nickname (here and here). Hey, uh, Hey Ya...

* The reason he's called Hey Ya! Jeff by some (e.g., ok, i.e., me) is that the man does a karaoke version of Outkast's "Hey Ya!" that is nothing short of miraculous. Seriously. Reports from Madison's recent Zombie Lurch are that at least half the corpses had been reanimated by the psychic force of one of his performances just so they could shake it, shake it, shake it like a Polaroid picture.**

** Granted, a Polaroid picture in which the zombie herself doesn't actually appear, being undead.***

*** This is a completely non sequitur footnote, added because I was just talking to my friend Kathryn, and she was upset about yesterday's revelation that I write all my posts for you and never-even-one-bit for her. (See the trouble you get me into!) She said the least I could do would be to give her a shout-out sometime in a footnote or something. So: Yo! Shout-out to Kathryn! Word. Peace. Word again. Peace redux.

Paranormal whackos are always claiming you can see traces of GHOSTS in photographs, which don't even have corporeal form, so I don't know why zombies wouldn't show up. And now that I think about it, I'm not sure why not showing up in mirrors automatically translates to vampires not showing up on film, but then again, I don't know a hell of a lot about how film actually works. Does my camera have tiny mirrors in it?

A camera does not have a mirror in it, no, although one could argue that the same phenomenon of optics that allows for the possibility of mirrors allows for the possibility of photographic film. I don't know if vampires are supposed to be visible on digital cameras.

Something I hadn't considered with regard to mirrors, though, is that fancier cameras of course use mirrors so that you can look through the viewfinder and see the view as it appears through the lens. So, vampires shouldn't be visible through the viewfinders of those cameras, much less show up on the film.
