Some people have just one cord for their phone and they bring it with them everywhere they need it. I’m not one of those kind of people. I have a cord on my nightstand, a cord at the coffee table where I use my laptop at home, a cord in my backpack, and a…

You know that song, “Why do birds suddenly appear?” Well, I know why birds suddenly appear every time you are near. It’s obvious. It’s all that birdseed you covered yourself with. How did you get it to stick to your body? Peanut butter? Honey? Baby oil? I…

I needed a mouse for my docking station at work, so the computer guys presented me with a fancy wireless mouse with a lot of buttons. I had to change the battery every few days, and I was always messing up my work because of a wild function button press.…

When I was growing up, my brother and I shared a room. Our family had a maid who took the train from the city, but sometimes she stayed overnight in a room of her own. When she died and wasn’t replaced, I was moved to her room. “What kind of wallpaper do…

One wall of my room was covered with corkboard so things could be pinned to it. Well, okay. It wasn’t my room. It was the room my brother and I were in. I don’t say shared because he thought of it as his room, and I was an intruder. One wall was a…

Sally was a great singer, but a lousy actress, and she was ugly as hell. Denise was a great actress, but her singing was awful, and she wasn’t much to look at. Tracy looked amazing, but she couldn’t sing or act her way out of a paper bag. All three showed…

Tens of thousands of Syrians have died during their civil war. Hundreds of thousands have fled the country. While these people suffer, diplomats and politicians yell at each other and do nothing. Like many, I think we should arm the Syrian rebels, but the…

Story
Tagline
aka R. Crap Mariner and SecondLie in Second Life
Introduction

Laurence Simon is a 40-something technical writer for a delightful software company. (He used to say "30-something, where something is more than 10" but he needs to be a lot more accurate about his writing these days. Darn.)

If you want to hear what he sounds like, why not check his daily podcast for some amusing 100-word stories. Every week, the Weekly Challenge brings in other writers to come up with their own stories based on a topic of his choosing.

You can find him wandering around Second Life as R Crap Mariner, a deranged windup surrounded by an aura of whirling gears on Edloe island, and the rest of the Five Islands Group.

Of, if you're into that Twitter thing, he's at @isfullofcrap and @100wordstories.
