Fabio's Flavor of Summer: The Laaahhve Attack

For once, I was ahead of the buzz, right? The I Write Like...thing exploded last week and everyone from Curtis Brown agent Nathan Bransford to the Associated Press had something to say about it. Margaret Atwood writes like Stephen King! Who knew? Not wanting to leave well enough alone, and knowing that Fabio adoration is never far from our hearts here at the Vortex, I bit off the big fat assumption that Fabio crafted the words to his romantic ditties and plugged his words into I Write Like's text analysis. Commence guessing fun.

First, Fabio's liquid poetry in case you've forgotten.

Now for bragging rights:

Fabio's lyrics are most like which famous author?

A. Dean Koontz
B. William Shakespeare
C. Jane Austen
D. Stephenie Meyer
E. Charles Dickens

Answer in the comments. If that sample whet your appetite for more laaahhve attack from Fabio, jump back to my post on his After Dark album. Still. Brings. Tears.

What have I been doing? Streaming Netflix movies through my Wii, reading the fabulous literary novel A Reliable Wife by Robert Goolrick, and deep editing on my spanking new laptop...whoot. No more jockeying for coffee shop outlets. No more viral leprosy. No more stalled production.

Which means it's back to work. I'll be dipping into the Vortex archives to find special favorites for the coming weeks to mix in with the crazy usual. I hope you're all having a Dairy Queen Classic French Silk Pie Blizzard kind of summer. Yum.

If your summer were an ice cream flavor, what would it be called?

Answer: D-Stephenie Meyers.

Perfect, right? LOL

I came out as Stephen King, which seriously disappointed me. As for the ice cream, right now the flavor would "melted"

Katie Reus said...

Mine would probably be vanilla b/c my life is pretty mellow right now, lol :)

I didn't enter anything, mainly because I'm still fighting some Luddite roots and miss half these new-fangled things you kids are doing these days.

For summer flavor, I don't know what it would be, but I do love anything with chocolate or coconut or pecans or peanut butter.

Fabio Meyer has a certain ring to it. ;)

Happy writing on your new laptop! Let's see an ice cream flavor... how about mocho loco cuz I love coffee ice cream and things are crazy busy for me right now.

Have an wonderful day!

I had done the I Write Like which said I wrote like Margaret Atwood.

My summer flavour would be Neopolitan: chocolate, vanilla and strawberry.
