Opinions! Everywhere you look, opinions!

20 Jul

“Ah, young love.” A criminally underused non-sequitur applicable to many situations. I hope to be able to use it sometime in the very near future. “Ah, to be young again” is also good and a little more flexible.

Did you know Art Spiegelman (of “Maus” fame) also came up with the Garbage Pail Kids? AND Garbage Candy, come to that! Man, I’d like to put that on my resume. “Created Garbage Candy”. That’s cool. That’s talent.

So anyway, did some proofing today–FINISHED some proofing, actually, so that’s nice. I’ll make the necessary changes tonight then have a think about things. I found eight actual errors, which is over my one error/25,000 words ratio of tolerance. Ordinarily this would necessitate another read-through. Hmm.

To finish, a quote that I’m suddenly and madly in love with:

“No degree of dullness can safeguard a work against the determination of critics to find it fascinating.”
– Harold Rosenburg

    Love the quote–here’s my own: Do not underestimate the ability of any academic to render his subject boring.
