You will note that I DID try not to start right out in a new place with A Bad Attitude.
Many of you may feel my linguistic nitpicking is narrow minded, tight-fisted, ham-handed -- name your cliché. Many of you know that I am quite simply wrathful, sulking, pouting and ill-tempered, since so many people this weekend are out apparently having a lovefest -- without ME. So, I tried to temper my temper. I tried to have The Proper Attitude, tried saying to myself "This is a new place, I shall take it as I find it," tried whistling a happy tune -- but then, this.
And the 'taking things as I find them' thing -- went right out the window.
This is the MOST EGREGIOUS MISUSE I found today. When is that International Punctuation Day!??! Never mind next year's Kidlitosphere Conference in Portland. We need to begin preparing to open up a can of whoop-punctuation on some people, right now...
