    I used to have a hard and fast no coworkers on FB rule, relaxed it for a bit and then regretted it–and then moved all the way across the country where I didn’t know anybody except my coworkers. So yeah, I have friended a very select few coworkers. However, I will not friend a boss or supervisor unless we were already friends before. I didn’t even friend my dissertation chair until after I left my program.

  2. I love your book lists posted/linked here. I checked out the Nebula and Hugo Award finalist list and decided I need to read The Art of Starving as it was on two lists. Thanks so much.
