OMG, did my birthday come early, or are there now free Grammar Girl podcasts on iTunes?! I generally reserve this kind of excitement for when I re-watch Joe's vidcast, but I'm absolutely beside myself. I'm not very good with grammar or punctuation, but for some scary, Type-A reason, I love it. I love it like I love flossing! Quotation marks, split infinitives, acronyms - here I come. Now if I could only get my eHarmony matches to subscribe. I’m so tempted to post part of an e-mail I received from one guy, but I just can’t bring myself to do it because it feels mean. But the e-mail is horrid. The sentence structure would keep you awake at night. I could never, ever date him after getting that e-mail.
Speaking of Internet dating, I got an e-mail from one of the guys I brushed off. He said that he accepts my decision but still finds me “Extraordinarily interesting, attractive and compelling.” What am I supposed to say? The guy has excellent taste. He sounds smart, too. Just kidding. He’s just not my type, and I’m not his. I did get e-mailed yesterday with a few matches from Crapchester, so we’ll see how those work out. Both are 5’11” which means they pass the first test. It seems so far I’ve been matched with every man under 5'6" from
With the proposed troop increase and last night’s State of the Union address, I feel like I should end things on a serious note. I got another bad haircut. Those of you who were with me at my old site might remember the dark days of the Dorothy Hamill scare. Now it seems that I resemble actor Joey Lawrence at age 5. I’m going back next week to try to get it right. Also, a few months ago I went back to my natural brown hair for the first time since I was maybe 18. Next week it’s back to blond. I can’t definitively say that blondes have more fun, but I’d like to be poised for action should it prove true.
That’s all I got. Happy Wednesday!
