It really doesn't make sense! But then again, neither do other dangling or misplaced modifiers. However, I do think the above parenthetical may hold the record for the longest parenthetical of all time, or at lease of this blog.
I know; I know; I should have a grammar blog for these kinds of grammar outbursts and not bore you with them here.
Feel free to commence with the comments about things left dangling or that are misplaced...g'head.
DramaGirl-GLEE update - Also, you should g'head and ask me how many GLEE inspired days of gratefulness and agreeableness I got from DramaGirl before "The Attitude" returned.
Answer: 'bout a day and a half...so the post-GLEE glow ended abruptly and we are back to our regularly scheduled program. Here's why...observe the map.
A = roughly where we live. B = roughly where DramaGirl wanted to go over Memorial Day with another family for four nights on a camping trip. Yes, to me, the overprotective mother (and I'm not even that overprotective), this is FAR, but more significantly, I've heard many, many, many wild stories about camping on "The River" over Memorial Day weekend, so I said, "no, you can't go this time" and have, thusly, ruined her life FOREVER!Running update - I ran two days in a row this week on Monday (3 miles on the 'mill) and Tuesday (4x800 repeats with the track club) which means that my knee has been a little twitchy. I am settling into the tapering thing. Today, I'm going to the gym for some time on the elliptical an some light weights.
Which leads me, with an extraordinary lack of a clever transition, to this, which at one point yesterday I thought would be the main point (if there ever was one) to this post...
Random signs that have made me laugh this week.
|Margarita Man - I don't know why I took this, but that there is a local business in which a man delivers margaritas I think is a sign of a recovering economy.|
|I think someone wants to be a heffer (this is not my licensee plate, nor does it belong to any of the heffers)|
Hope everyone is having a fabulous week. I'm giving two more finals today...grading them tomorrow...and I'm DONE for the SUMMER! WOOT!
