Meet @MouseCrackers — boj's new Timmins, Ontario correspondent
Her real name is Sabrina but her Twitter (you mean Twitter's not real life?) handle is @MouseCrackers.
She's located in Timmins, Ontario, Canada,
which makes me think that even though I didn't ask her if it was OK to tell you that, she kind of takes my position that anyone who's willing to travel there to say "Hi" is more than welcome.
In any event, the recruiting process was relatively painless (at least for me): It consisted of me seeing on Twitter sometime Friday that she'd #FF'd me, writing "For a commitment to sharing the quirky & the random but always interesting."
As I told her in my reply, "Flattery gets you everywhere, not least an invite to join my team of crack correspondents."
Our negotiations, such as they were, are pictured below as they happened in real time.
Ms. @MouseCrackers also has a tumblr worth visiting.
So give her a big boj welcome and bring some warmth to at least one heart in Timmins, current temperature 48°F/9°C.
I didn't get a chance to relate that the pay for being a member of my Crack Correspondent Team®™© — and in her case, bureau chief — is minimal and the benefits nonexistent but hey, who cares about stuff like that when you can add this title to your LinkedIn profile — and expect a great letter of recommendation to boot.
Ms. @MouseCrackers wrote, upon accepting the position, "Fantastic! What do I have to do?"
That's the best part: not a thing.
