Personal blogging at least every 15 days? Bwaaaahahaha! Let’s try 30, shall we?

Did I edit my pledge? You’re damn right I did. Progress is progress, dahling. Hope you’re getting closer to your goals, as well. Keep climbing. Never stop.

It’s August?!

Wasn’t it National Grammar Day just a few weeks ago? 

Hope you enjoyed a lovely spring and summer. Clearly, ours flew by. 

Now, it’s back-to-school time, and you know what that means: spelling and grammar gaffes galore. Let’s dive right in.

Happy Grammar Day!

It’s that time again: National Grammar Day!

Watch those apostrophes. Murder emphasis quotes and passive voice with sheer abandon. Sip a grammartini. Hug an editor. Rescue dangling modifiers. JUST GO CRAZY. 

Rise!

A New Year’s Eve Request

NYE Party HatIf you catch anyone shouting “Happy New Years!” tonight, please thump them on the head. It might squash some party hats and/or provoke drunken anger, but go ahead and do it anyway. Let me know how that goes.

We’re only celebrating one new year, not several. While there will be more new years (don’t tell the Mayans), we’re only dealing with 2015 right now. Happy New Year.

For geeky kicks, click here for a growing-by-the-minute list of “Happy New Years” tweets. Ugh.
