Late Night Posting...

Man, I just had a burst of editing inspiration. I've been dreading taking this take-home editing test. The writing is truly awful, and my better instinct tells me that in a "real-world situation," I'd be able to take one look at this writing and chuck it instantly into the nearest paper shredder without a second thought. Unfortunately, we have to take a stab at it... and I was so horrified by the first sentence I couldn't break into the rest of the text. When I did, though... it just started rolling out of me. This is still my first pass, but I'm actually excited to take a fresh look at it tomorrow, make final revisions, and see that it's consistant with Chicago style. I'm not even dreading the mock-query letter or style sheet!

In other news, I hatched a mini-goat! It's so cute! I can't adopt a new egg yet, 'cause the site is currently in teh overload mode... but there's always tomorrow.


*P.S. I totally called it, Bryman.

Shelby out!

What

Just because they create communities doesn't mean you have to join them...

Did you read the whole thing?

It doesn't matter if you don't join them... they can still harvest your personal information, or your e-mail. My little sitemeter, which just counts how many hits I get, leads me a lot of places. Plus, I don't want livejournal to have any ads. I don't think it's necessary, and I was against it from the beginning. I, personally, pay them for a service. Most of the people on my f-list do too, and I don't want them to advertise in my face. Thanks very much.

The better question was do I ever read anything

Holy crap! He lives! And logs on to LJ!

I was talking about the petition addressing the progression of sponsored accounts into sponsored communities, and forced ads.

CALLED IT.

Also, you're not dumb. You're a goddamn physicist, Sean. Physicist does not = dumb under any circumstances.
