I was planning to save the update until Thursday, but I'm bored, and what the hell, it's a somewhat lengthy piece anyway. This time, SC takes a look at Maury's "I'm Madly In Love With My Complete Opposite". We call it Maury's OPPOSITE COUPLES OF DOOM. Enjoy...

Fallout shelter

The first part of this morning post comes to you courtesy of Matt of X-Entertainment, who in the X-E blog has posted a "poll" of sorts (it's not really a poll; more like a question, really), asking readers what they would take with them in the event that disaster struck and they were forced to retreat into a fallout shelter of their own design.

Nothing really new to add, except look for the debut of a new SC ongoing feature really soon. Like maybe later today, maybe Monday. Soon. I'll keep you posted.

Tonight's post is courtesy of Hannah, who also has a link now in the sidebar. In a blog post today she referred readers to "Kafka in Bronteland", a short story by Tamar Yellin.
