Each thing and every thing Simone says is 50% sincere and 50% sarcastic.

Why is Simone so weird?
She is socially retarded. All cordial public behavior is an act.


Why is Simone avoiding me?
She is not actually avoiding you- she is being reclusive. Simone can only handle so much social activity each day. If she does something social during the day, she has to be alone at night, and vice versa. If she does not get her alone time, she becomes a royal bitch.

Why did Simone not come to the thing I invited her to?
See above response. Chances are Simone already reached her social capacity for the day, and even though she WANTED to go to your thing, she had no choice but to shy away from humans like vampires hide form the sun (and yes, she does hiss).

She prefers to do fun stuff (think: skydiving / classes / lectures) instead of acquire things, so her favorite gifts to give and receive are experiences, not objects. She also prefers to give / receive things when appropriate – not on arbitrary dates. NEVER feel obligated to give Simone a gift. If you really want to give her something meaningful, tell her about something you’re passionate about or teach her about something interesting.

She blinks a lot.

How can I tell when Simone is nervous?
She talks a lot, laughs, and smiles.

Exceptions are highly unusual with regard to Simone Protocol; for this reason, the User Manual is of particular utility.

Are point releases scheduled, or can we consider this FAQ locked in stone?
Point releases are scheduled but are few and far between. Unscheduled releases take place pending bludgeons to the head (preferably with frozen herrings).


Say so! And if you want to be super cool, make your OWN user manual.

  1. Genius! And I keep thinking about that movie ‘Clay Pidgeons’ when the police officer asks his deputy to “please stop poking the dead body with a stick”….I know…I’ma sicko:) lol

    Brilliant bio!!

  2. Yeah, Julie shared this. Fantastic bio. You have a perfect hook. My hook is bent, dead and rusty. I need some silver polish and some rags or something, maybe some pliers to bend the hook, and then some metallic glitter or something to spruce it up…Haha.
