<< Mob Rule: Grammarama | My Arms Being Tired Implies That I Flew Here Without Mechanical Assistance >>

I apologize for my recent absence -- after my last post I was seized by the Secret Grammar Police and extradited to Gerundland as part of their War on Error. I was held in an underground modal and wasn't released until I swore to never again engage in wanton misapostrophication.

(Actually, I was working on a project with the genius behind Goopymart, which should be appearing in The Morning News soon. I'll resume work on the yeti today.)

During the my hiatus, someone reminded me that I'd long ago promised reviews of both Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and Caylus, so I'll try and get those written shortly. Someone else asked for an update on The Squirrelly, and I'm working on one now. And I received email asking that I exhume those Vocabulary Bookmarks I posted a million years ago.

So if anyone else would like to make a request or remind me about something I said I'd write but never did, I guess this is the thread to do so.

Update: Sorry I didn't make this clear: the link on the Vocab Bookmarks page points nowhere. I removed the bookmarks PDF from my site a long time ago, back in the day when my webhost only gave me 10MB of space. As soon as I unearth them on my home PC I'll post them in a new entry.

After such an intro, I can't help but point out that your link to Goopymart contains a typo (only one "o").

Yeah, if you could PLEASE wear deodorant today, oh, and tread softly as to not make the cake baking in the oven all flat, that would be great, thanks.

You were gone? Hmmm.

OK, write an article about how when you ask for suggestions of what to write about, people suggest what you should do instead.

I have only one burning question:

Are you an "are" man or an "is" man?

“As soon as I unearth them on my ‘home’ PC…?”
Oy Matt, major faux pas, that’s nigh on a confession to blogging at work. This will undoubtedly be used against you when the Department of Homeland Security decide to blacklist bloggers.
“Are you, or have you ever been a member of the blogging community..?”

I believe that "wanton misapostrophication" is now officially my new favorite phrase.

IS you an "are" man! Oh for pity's sake...
