Short story by Neil Gaiman. Written in May 2006 and first read to the public that month at Balticon but not published until April 2008. The story takes the format of answers to questions which are not seen. There are 70 questions answered by seventeen year old Jemima Glorfindel Petula Ramsey about her family and recent events involving them. Her mother, inventor of Stuffed Muffins (tm), had been trying to invent colored bubbles that wouldn't splatter dye when they popped. Jemima's sister, Nerys, a fan of tanning lotions, used a random jar of orange dye on her skin which inevitably led her to become Her Immanence, bent on world domination using her mind powers.
