A kiss and a tweet

By Phil Plait | June 29, 2009 2:04 pm

As you may recall, my fellow Hive Overminder Sheril Kirshenbaum is writing a book about kissing. She ran an experiment a few weeks ago about it, asking people to rate different pictures of people osculating. I posted about it, and apparently BABloggees are an affectionate lot, as she got an overwhelming response.

In fact, she got so many emails that can’t possibly respond to them all, so she has decided to use Twitter to keep people updated on recent events. If you want to stay on top of kissing, then follow her on Twitter at thekissingbook.

And if you don’t like this idea, that’s fine; just don’t give me any lip about it.

    @Phil: Sheril’s also supporting a fellow scientist in a contest to win a trip to Antarctica (see her post on grrlscientist). Care to ask readers to visit the site, check out some essays, and hopefully vote for her?

    Kiss and tell? I say! Well, if it’s in the service of mankind I guess I can stand it. [pucker lips, auntie fashion]

    … just don’t give me any lip about it.
    Don’t you get mouthy with me, boy!
