7 Quick Takes--#4 (aka Better Late than Never)

--- 1 ---

I have to say that I am OH-SO happy that I know HTML. I just saw an error in the second entry on this page, that was probably created long ago (I copied and pasted the code for Quick Takes from Jen's blog) and it was bugging me, so I looked at the "edit HTML" version here and figured out what was wrong and voila! Fixed!

I do not like it when people use voila incorrectly. It's VOILA. Not wah-la, viola (that's an instrument), etc.

--- 3 ---

Yes, I can be a snob about grammar, punctuation, spelling, and syntax. I firmly believe that Oxford commas are still needed.

--- 4 ---

I wonder how many people actually know what an Oxford comma is, and why it is needed. Here's a funny picture to explain:

There's a hilarious one out there involving now-dead world leaders and some "adult entertainers," but that's not exactly family friendly and might be NSFW. If you want to see it, click here:

Back to more serious topics, I haven't really been keeping up with my blogging. Ugh, you know, things like WORK and life get in the way. I really want to write about some meaty issues, a few being: why I don't fit in with the majority of the Catholic blogosphere, being a future working mom, how I feel like our wedding prep was a joke, why I'm not a good Catholic, among my usual rambles.

So here's a question for you...whoever you are out there? What topics would you like to see me write about more? It could be something you saw in a past post and thought I'd write more about, it could be something you want me to write about because you want to see my pull my hair out in frustration, whatever.

Lastly, since I've been making more "blogging and Twitter friends," is there anything you all would like to know about me? Feel free to ask anything you want--be anonymous if that makes you feel better (for the regulars). I will try to answer all of them, even if they make me slightly uncomfortable.

One more thing, before I go, I am on Twitter: @jentoinfinity. And if you want to email me anything: rabbitturtle29 at g m a i l DOT c o m

  1. And this is why you're awesome--you support the Oxford comma and you know how to spell voila!

    I like all of the topics you mentioned in #5! (Probably no surprise there since we've discussed most of them in the comments on my blog...) :)

    1. I am a nerd! :)

      And yes, things you've written about have either inspired me or I'd already been thinking about them and it's been cool to see that someone else thinks similarly/I'm not alone?!

  2. I use Oxford commas! It drives me crazy when people don't. . .

    I have been TERRIBLE at blogging lately, but I just haven't had much in the way of free time!

    1. Hmm what have you been busy with? Or shall I be bold and ask whom? ;)

  3. I'm a fan of the Oxford comma. :)

    I'd love to know why you don't feel like you fit in with the majority of the Catholic blogosphere.

    1. Comma fans unite!

      Actually, it's not just Catholics. Probably any religious woman under 40, ha. But I'll write more on that soonl
