Buzzing Like a Killer Bee

posted 10 May 2006, 10PM | 13 Comments

It's been a long time since I remember having so many exciting ideas bouncing around in my head all at the same time. Whether I'll able to act on many of them I'm not sure, but at 28 it feels like my brain is finally hitting its creative stride.

Here's a small pet-peeve of mine: people who don't use question marks at the end of questions when writing email. Does that bother you, too. Is the problem that they're in too much of a hurry. Doesn't it make people sound like they're not even listening to themselves. Mark my words: LACK OF QUESTION MARKS IS THE NEW ALL-CAPS.

Hey, in honor of these cloudy, rainy days, who wants a present? The first three people with valid email addresses who ask for it win a present. Don't bother if you're a super close friend of mine.

what if i told you to f*** off? (see use of question mark) would i then qualify as a more distant friend and get a present? thanks for clarifying.

Do I qualify?

Jonas, thanks for kindly asking me to F-Off! Unfortunately, you are already a user of the present, and do not qualify.

Steve, who are you. Where is your valid email address. Do you see where I asked for an email address. How will I send you the present unless you at least contact me with your email address. Seriously what were you thinking.

I too have the buzzzing ideas thing going on and it starting to get me down, too many ideas not enough time. I'm starting to feel like I can't get it all done. I'll go cry now.

I would dearly like a present. It could be, in the words of Lou Reed "A Reason to keep living"?
How's that for a question mark.

Ok, I am not a close friend of yours. What do I get?

"Mrs.L", please note the question mark?
