Do you ever sit down here without a clue as to what you might write? I just opened this and am sitting here staring at a blank screen and feeling as if my head is as empty as this box. I guess being away from work for two days is cleansing… but if that translates into “empty-headed” I’m in a bit of a quandry. Let’s put this another way. There is an absence of stressy thoughts in my head. And, damn, that feels good.
As a little side note, when you put a word or words in quotes and there needs to be a comma immediately following that word or those words, does the comma go inside or outside the quotes? I want to say outside but that looks “weird”, and if you look right there, after “wierd,” you will see. And if you look right there, after the second “weird” where I have put the comma inside, you will see that it also looks wrong. F— it. From now on when I use quotes, there will be no comma following, no matter how necessary.
I love having a blog where you can make your own rules. Some of my own rules are as follows:
1) The word “about” is spelled a-b-o-o-t in honor of my (ever-dwindling) Canadian readership.
2) If I cannot find or don’t know a word I need, I make it up.
3) Screw spellchecker. Who needs it?
4) There are some things that I just refuse to talk aboot. Mostly unlady-like things. But my definition of “lady-like” is my own, and probly not yours. Like this blog.
5) If I read back over what I’ve written and it’s bland or unimaginative, I can just stop
