- “While I don’t wish to co-opt these girl’s work by leaving the work anonymous here, it is difficult to impossible on tumblr to trace the origins of particular images.

- Do you come in late or leave early without prior permission? Are you unavailable at night or on the weekends? Do you fail to meet any goals? Do you give unsolicited advice about how to run things? Do you take personal phone calls during work hours? Do you gossip? Do you misuse company property? Do you surf the internet while at work? Do you submit poorly written materials? Do you create an atmosphere of complaint and argument? Do you fail to respond to emails in a timely way? Do you show zero interest in aspects of publishing beyond editorial? Do you make repeated mistakes? Do you violate company policies? Do you want to be paid to work? If you answered yes to everything, I am afraid that while you are not Dalkey Archive material, you are my clone. I guess if we were to be reunited, this is as good an occasion as any!
