Rain antipathyIt's raining. Hard. And I have the concomitant lack of motivation to do any work. The cure for this wet malaise (not just an unfortunate salad dressing, really) is catching up on Michelle's blog. Excerpt:
My blog titles have been long-winded lately. More so than usual. Where has my Brevity fled? Most likely it ditched the U.S. and is co-habitating with Proper Grammar in some lovely hut on a secluded beach. No Prepositional Phrases allowed. Don't get me wrong--I love them--but you cram too many in one place and things get a bit convoluted...to and from and under...pretty soon you're all tied up in directional knots and you have to travel back to your point of origin to get your bearings.
Speaking of bearings and brevity (specifically the lack of both), see above paragraph.
P.S. I'm from Oregon. When did I become such a rain wuss?
