Questions for cryptic girls

I’ve been having a most unusual conversation with someone named Skyler on Formspring.Me. According to the home page, the service lets users:

Send and receive anonymous questions, and learn more about people you find interesting by following their answers.

The idea is that you go to a particular user’s page and, without needing to log in, you can post a question for them.  If they like your question they can respond to it, and both question and answer are posted publicly.  It’s almost like an anonymous chat session, but even less formal – if that is possible.

I don’t think it is intended to actually foster dialog, but that seems to be what has happened tonight.  And as disjointed as the conversation is, I am strangely enjoying it.
