grammar guide and more

I had a busy and lovely weekend, filled with good food, graduations, friends and family, and a lot of sun.  It's already hitting ninety degrees and I'm a little afraid we're going to have a ridiculously hot summer.

Summer Sun

Today, in lieu of writing up my own grammar post, I'm going to send you to the recently rediscovered series of grammar posts on The Oatmeal.  Have you ever read/seen them?  They're part snarky, part just funny, and part informative.  You'll probably laugh out loud.  I did, at least, especially while reading the one about semicolon use.  I am searching for my notebook (among other things hiding in boxes) that has my list of future grammar-related posts in it, but I can't find it and my mental list seems to be in hiding at the moment.  Does that ever happen to you?  

Remember how I posted about a haircut?  I went ahead and got one.  I like it quite a bit; it's short and simple to keep up.  I changed my blogger picture accordingly.

The Oatmeal is seriously brilliant. I could spend hours lost in all those great comics.

I hate when that happens! My English teacher was famous for his line "semicolon however comma" which he would recite whenever it was appropriate to remind us of its proper usage--hope you find your notebook soon!
