Kindly note:

I'm a snob. You know it, I know it, we all know it. I want - no, I need - good grammar. I need proper punctuation. If you send me a document for reference, or just reading randomly, I will first spend ten minutes creating my personal version, with corrected grammar and punctuation in it. Only then will I proceed to read it.

I need spaces after full stops and commas, not before. I do not like double spaces. And you get extra points if you justify the document.

Thank you.

that's not snobbery, that narcissism!

I absolutely understand what you're talking about. Heartfelt empathy.

I second the motion! Wholeheartedly!

I do that too... and I don't think it's narcissism. Grammar is as important as the content.


Your word verification thing just asked me for a y with umlauts, by the way.

@fintan: I'm told you're still in Washington?!

Fintan said...

I'm nowhere near Washington... but don't worry, my location should change back to Aberdeen soon. (hopefully)

By closing my eyes tightly, and repeating to myself, I love this girl I love this girl I love this girl. Only then do I proceed.

Of course, if it's a Word doc, I just edit it first. :P
