Bitch on the Blog

I have paragraphed myself

Filed under: Uncategorized — bitchontheblog @ 15:22

Sweethearts, I am not the same person I was about 12 hours ago. Brain cells have died, skin has been shed, hair lost and my nerves are in more tatters than ever. The last due to doing battle with wordpress and its editing facilities.

All I wanted were empty lines in between some of my sentences! It’s not much to ask for, is it?

Either wordpress has a lovely way of tripping up the unsuspecting or I am stupid. Probably a mixture of both. The next frontier being how to change my font. I want to enlarge as it were.

However, happiness  is mine for the moment since I finally got my ‘About’ as in “I am who I am” arranged in paragraphs. And that’s all you need to know about me:

I love paragraphs. Like punctuation (unlike smileys) they are vital to structuring a text and give the reader some breathing space. Yes, I know it’s pretty anal to care about things like that but that’s me and suits me just fine. I didn’t go to school for nothing, did I?



  1. I, like you, use punctuation, to the best, not least, of my ability, though ability is limited! I don’t use, if I think about it, to say the least, overuse, say the explanation point, like this, !!!!!! One is enough!!!

    Tom thinks that explanation points break up a sentence too much so he doesn’t use them so that his thoughts run together like honey which you only want on your pancakes but not in your sentences he just called breakfast so that I will eat his pancakes that are so delicious nutritious which he has just finished & I bet upon consideration you think I made that last part up but IT’S THE TRUTH!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. I’m exaggerating about Tom’s punctuation, of course. Actually I don’t see sentences he’s written, only equations.

  3. It’s an exclamation point, not explanation point  (From Julie in NYC)
    I typed exclamation, but it looked funny so I changed it to explanation. That wasn’t a typo, just a non-braino.  bikehikebabe
    No, it’s not a non-braino. You might be onto something there: After all, we often use exclamation marks to EXPLAIN something.

  4. I write like Tom when I do free-association journaling. It’s liberating but no one else will ever read it. I had to train myself to shorten my sentences when writing for others.
