The holiday season can bring a lot of gift-related stress. This year, I decided to share everything I found on the internet that I think people who love this blog might also like. If there's a punctuation-lover on your list (or if you want some ideas to add to your helpful wishlist) check out the pinterest pinboard I just made. I'll keep adding things as I see them or find them. Feel free to suggest more things, follow, repin or ignore.
In the U.S. it's Thanksgiving and I'm taking the day off from posting, but I wanted to mention once again, in a rare moment of sincerity, that I am thankful for all of you. Thanks for clicking on my website, and sharing links, and sending me photos. I literally couldn't run the blog without you. Nor would I want to, because talking to myself gets boring.
So, happy thanksgiving to U.S. readers, and happy thursday to everyone else.
Also, I'm working on a punctuation-lover's holiday gift guide. If you have ideas, feel free to drop them in the comments of this post. If you are an etsy seller with punctuation themed items, self-promotion is encouraged.
I was in New Orleans for an Academic conference this weekend, and my friends and I found a few items to share with you today. Becky found this one. I guess in New Orleans, they pretend to boot your car.
Please send your submissions via email to bethanykeeley (at) gmail.com. I look at them all, but it might take a while to get to yours -- sorry! I love you all, but I only have so much energy in a day.
If you want your picture to make the blog DO NOT @tweet them, or leave them in a comment. I need them all in the same place. Make sure your emails are easily distinguishable from spam or viruses (I use gmail web interface, so images get previews).
I don't usually post the following: newspaper headlines, personal email, craigslist postings, unprofessional websites. I also tend to not crosspost things from other blogs, since I have so much unique material waiting for me to get to it.
Things I see a lot: silica gel "do not eat"; hair dryer labels; inside the bus "do not drill"; Wal-mart sign about IDs; coffee machine with "2" cup sizes; employees must "wash hands"; that failblog post.
