telling you about the status quo


Examples of "changes": gym now features treadmills, ten pound weights weigh ten pounds, locker rooms smell funny. Thanks, J.

I gotta tell you, this made me laugh like a stupid person at 6 in the morning when I first saw it.

Why do they need your phone number if they promise all they'll do with your info is email you?

"We will never give your information to anyone else." Did they cross their heart and hope to die when they wrote that? I have my doubts.

For the life of me, I can't figure out what they were trying to say with those quotes. It doesn't even make sense if it was for emphasis. So weird. And what's with the random capitalization?

Hmm.

I love your blog. It's my favorite new find. (I was so tempted to put the word find in quotations. Original, huh?)

I just found you, O Wise One.
My thing is misused possessives, and I have a sneaky fondness for apostrophes, as in Greetings Club Members. Sounds like a nice club.

Not sure what bugs me more. It's either the incorrect use of quotation marks or the comma sitting outside of them.

I mean period. :)

Sarah said...

Hey now. The period logically belongs outside the quotation marks. The only reason us Americans put it inside is because centuries-old printing technology couldn't handle it otherwise.

What's a greetings club?

Maybe Greetings Club is the group of people who organize Welcome Wagons.

The sign actually says nothing about a gym. Just a "club".

I am worried that I will never accomplish all the things I have so long dreamed of achieving, now that I am glued to your site and laughing maniacally.
