Does anyone else get that itch to post if you haven't posted in a few days? It's probably directly related to the amount of comments you're getting.
Also, it's Friday, which means it's Friday fun time. Here are some high-larious links from CollegeHumor.com for you:
Minesweeper: The Movie: What's fucking awesome about this is it almost feels like it could be a real movie. And the tagline rules. As does most everything else about it.
Facebook Off: Cute idea and very topical!
Internet Commenter Business Meeting: A must-see for anyone who has commented on the Internet.
I am currently doing an AMWA workshop called Punctuation for Clarity and Style. It inspired this poll.
What is your favorite punctuation mark?
What is J.K. Rowling's new favorite punctuation mark?
Feel free to explain your choice in a properly punctuated essay.
Current Mood: nerdy
Current Music: Rammstein - Reise, Reise
What elevates the semicolon above the comma and the colon for me is the fact that it has a second, completely separate use that's very...useful. I appreciate the way it can break up comma-containing items in a series.
That is a pretty awesome use, I agree.
