For all this talk about how no one knows how to use it, how it's falling into disuse, how no one understands it anymore, I seem to know a lot of people; in addition to myself, who have a hearty appreciation for the semicolon.

So what's the problem?

(Yes, I know you want to know how my insemination went, but I am late for dinner. For now I will tell you two things: there was a lot of cramping and spotting, and yet I bought a bib this weekend.)

blah blah blah semi-colon blah blah

I have missed you. Talk to me.

Maggie said...

I miss you too. And I am sorry. Here is a list of things I have failed to do during the past two months:

1. secure a new roommate.
2. write three of my four writing assignments
3. submit an invoice for the single writing assignment I did manage to complete
4. book a vacation
5. clean my house
6. do my taxes
7. update the blog
8. perform decently at my job
9. go to the gym
10. have a life

I have no idea what I'm doing with my time. But I promise to post today...

Julie said...

I'm curious too. My to do list is almost as big as yours, and is certainly just sitting there.

Looking forward to an update!

I don't know what to do with semicolons; however, I do know what to do with semi-erections.

Nina said...

Avi, I see that you, too, are now flirting with my beloved Maggie, Grand Duchess of Boston Internet Excellent. First Woodrow, now you. Am I to have no internet excellence secrets all to myself?? Is this how it is to be?

Avitable said...

Wait. Nina, which one of us is the internet excellence secret? I thought it was me!

Maggie said...

And I am undeserving of any internet excellent flirtation anyway, as I broke my promise to post an update...
