Dreamt a dream
about falling asleep,
woke up in yet another one --
a near-seamless string of dreams within dreams.

As I become older, 
I still retain the eternal heart of a 6 year old child.
Sort of like Peter Pan ....

.... and I will always take my chances with Captain Hook.

I am a Canuck who grew up on the West Coast.
I have some of this, do a little of that (lol).
Aside from writing, I enjoy oil painting as a creative outlet.
I love mountain biking.
I am a gardener and bio-chemist.
(So many "I"s)

As far as the Peter Conspiracy goes,
Chris is a shortened version of my birth-name.
It is my legal name.
I am not some guy from NYC; I have never lived in NYC. is the first site where I publicly posted a poem online.




Questions Concerning Soup-Etiquette......Maybe?

Blog Posted:11/19/2012 9:52:00 PM
Hullo, Soupers:

If a souper with the member account of: George Wurmplatzer,
creates a different account, using the pen-name of: Stephanie Glittzplonken,
then uses the Stephanie account to leave comments on your poems and/or blogs,
and you want to reply to his(the artist formerly known as George)comments,
is it better to call him: George, or: Stephanie,
when leaving him replies/comments?

Knowing that Stephanie is actually George,
I find myself in the conundrum of finding it difficult to call George,
Stephanie, on his Stephanie account.

Or, might it be a safer bet to use neither names when replying to him?

Then again, might it be better to reply to the 'Stephanie' comments,
on the actual George account?

Wot would you do in such a situation?(or already do?)

Any feedback is kindly appreciated. Thank You.

**Disclaimer** No actual member account names

    George Wurmplatzer is the German transgender translation for Stephanie Glittzpoken. These misnomers (for want of a better word) are common among Germanic tribes. The names can be used together with a slash or individually. The use of these name alone or together is outlawed in the U.S. If you find anyone doing this, report them to immigration. p.s. - now seriously Chris, what are you talking about?

    Oh, the things I could say... lol... like when you study someone's avatar, first and last names and see what may be a hint which others don't see ... I think I saw someone on this site use a female personality as a way to scent out whether a playful poem was actually full-out cougar play, leading me to believe the 2nd persona was for safety purposes, understandable. You can usually tell the dual-gender players by the fact that one account has only twelve poems, yet they've been on soup for a year. I just wouldn't bother to play the game, Chris. It's so silly, isn't it? Let 'them' play with themselves, unless you like the him/her, in which case just address the personality by name ;)

    Maybe I'm a bit dense... But I don't know who they are... in multiples or singlets... But I'll treat them like individuals... If they have a problem and need multiple names... It's theirs to do as they please... I'll respect their wishes... Tho I may not understand why they do it.

    Stay away from folks who don't at least appear honest, direct, straightforward, confident enough to at least APPEAR to use their real name. It's hard enough to deal with a real person why even attempt to deal with a figment of their imagination [on purpose]? I do realize some names which look real aren't. All one can do it try to be honest.

    I read this blog and now I have a headache and i am really confused. I say, say nothing. Maybe this Souper has no idea who he is.

    Call him/her Georphani! ...or Stephoerge... The problem is that everyone knows who this fellow Souper is... LOL! Even he/she "knows" that we "know" and I dont "know" why he/she insists! : )

After reading this blog, you will never again have to claim that you don't know how to write haiku :P

For many of you, this is just another boring blog concerning thoughts about haiku(any Japanese short-forms)
