Because it's a Facebook video, I don't believe I can link it here, but I recommend that people follow this link and watch the accompanying video even if you don't have a Facebook account, as it's rather amusing: www.facebook.com/video.php?v=1103072546373642
To business. For the next thirteen days, asking questions in the comments of the linked Facebook post will give you the opportunity to be answered by Lemony Snicket himself! He'll be providing his answers on Monday, July 27th. If you have a Facebook account, don't miss this chance to ask if Ellington is really Beatrice or what was in the sugar bowl! Even if you can't ask, it should be interesting to hear the answers.

Oh man the chalk (paint?) outline of a body next to the book. Hooray more Snicket-related archive footage stuff. And I'm loving the fact that someone has asked him 'will you watch my children on Saturday night?'.
To be fair, quite a lot of the questions asked about the narratives aren't things he would ever actually answer, because they'll be answered in ?4. Or never. I think a more interesting question to ask would be about the parents of various characters in ATWQ, or other background fluff which might be important but isn't yet.

Well, he has answered questions about the narratives: he answered a question about Theodora's previous apprentice, for instance, in a way that, though mysterious at the time, was perfectly clear in retrospect. But obviously the questions left unanswered at the end of ASOUE were things that were meant to be mysterious.

Someone knows if Snicket did something like this before? I'm curious about what kind of questions he's going to answer, if only the jokey ones (like that girl who asked him to watch her children), personal ones, related to ASOUE or ATWQ or what.
