Tuesday stupid questions...

Apostrophes! What's the deal with them? Why are there so many of them? Why are they so often ill used?

Seriously I got nothing. I used to come up with stupid questions all the time in the most unlikely places and even though I usually didn't get them written down right away and often not in time to remember them at all, there were enough of them to have material for this here bit at some point in time but these days.. nothing. And I don't remember any of the old ones and the ones I wrote down seem dumb.

I don't know what's wrong with me.. it's like I've lost my ability to to think up pointless things that can be written about in a semi-humorous way if you're amused by that sort of thing which it seems at least one person is.. but.. I dunno. I've lost my mojo, as they say.

Sympathies. I know what it's like to lose one's mojo, in fact, Its been that way for me too, for some time now. And If that's not enough, I'm at home for the second day with yet another migraine! What the fuck is going on?

Let's hope your wossname bears fruit. I'll sacrifice a chicken for you.

kay..

maybe a head of lettuce.. that might help.

yeah.. I guess my problems are relatively small.. I don't know how I'd function let alone create anything worth it's salt.. (just how much is that anyway?) if I suffered from migranes.. I'd just sit here howling and whining..

I kind of do that anyway.. *ponders*

yeah.. but it still sucks..

You're a difficult one to work out. Sometimes I think your " howling and whining" is just your style, but then I think, maybe there's no smoke without fire. It's tricky trying to pitch the comments right. Head of lettuce? [giggles, almost girl-like]

I wouldn't try to analyze it too much, it's usually just.. I dunno.. filling the space up with words that come out of my head with little attention to.. um.. what was I talking about? Something like that.

I used to write clever stuff, these days, not so much.

Michelle said...

And when I say "clever"... I mean pointless and stupid but with some thought put into it.. can't even muster that much now..

*pines for the golden age*

I noticed in my blogging that I have like five things to say that I keep repeating in different combinations. I have other stuff in my head, but not the energy to bang it into a semi-readable blog post. There's probably a pill for that.

On the punctuation matter, probably the funniest (and most helpful) book on the subject is Eats Shoots and Leaves. To give you an idea of the type of person the author is, she also wrote Talk to the Hand: The Utter Bloody Rudeness of the World Today, or Six Good Reasons to Stay Home and Bolt The Door.
