NaBloPoWriMo Servo: Day 14
Tom Servo has been networking lately. Monday night, I went to a website launch (re-launch?)/changing of the guard party for Bitter Lawyer/Bitter Empire and talked him up. Wednesday night, he went to my women’s writing group, the Dubbers, and made a few friends.
It was a small but solid group, and my fellow writers suggested a spin-off blog called “Servo in Small Doses.” We’ll see if he does anything with it. Last night, I took him to the MN Publishing Tweet-up monthly meeting of agents, writers, and other publishing-related careers. He was a big hit!
And he tried beer.
Tonight, you can (hopefully) find Tom Servo at the Brave New Workshop Friday Night Stage Match, where he will be filling a variety of roles.
And now, the sparkling water question: what is the difference between tonic water, club soda, mineral water, and seltzer?
(According to the Huffington Post):
Mineral water is water that comes from a natural spring; it naturally contains carbonation and minerals (with the exception of San Pellegrino, which apparently adds carbonation).
Seltzer water is just carbonated water.
Club soda is carbonated water with minerals added (like potassium bicarbonate and potassium sulfate).
Tonic water contains quinine (making it bitter, which is why it pairs so well with gin) and, unlike the others, calories.
So there you have it!
