Dos and Don'ts

  • Don't hit [enter] after typing in the title of your blog entry. If you do, it thinks you have completed your post and are ready to publish it. Thus, it merrily and expeditiously publishes your post, which at this point consists entirely of a title.
  • Don't use apostrophes when referring to the plural of something. If you are selling hamsters (an honorable trade), your sign should read "Hamsters". Not "Hamster's". Then people might think it's Hamster's shop, not yours. And I'm sure you worked hard for your shop, and don't want a hamster to take all the credit.
  • Don't rent Hidalgo. Unless you really enjoy overacting, which, I admit, has its charms, especially after a few drinks. The Hidalgo casting director seems to have hired many actors straight out of The School of Eybrow Acting, which I assumed had folded after the silent film era ended. Eyebrows were flying; read the eyebrows to interpret the evil intentions, suspicions, suffering, innocent yearnings, you name it. Besides, I kept thinking how much better it would have been with Owen Wilson in the lead. Oops. Now you'll be doing the same thing. Another reason not to rent it.
  • Do rent Super Size Me, especially if you've made a New Year's resolution to lose weight. This is a great bit of motivation to stay away from the fast food.
  • Do read my son's blog. He's having much more fun than I am, which makes for more entertaining reading.

I think Mr. Quimby's right, and he should know. Legal office? What legal office? This woman's a writer, hot dang!
