The version of hell that I administer

Has a special wing for those who decline to follow the rules of grammar based on aesthetics. 

The fact that you “don’t like the way it looks” does not mean it’s not a comma splice. 

Tagged: this is not 'nambut it is why the oxford comma is badin that comma proliferation makes it harder for people to use them correctlyand they do not need the hurdlebecause 95 percent of people have no idea how to use commas

Don’t know about you guys, but July has been a real kick in the dick

And while I hold no especial high hopes for August, I know the last six weeks have been a disaster, so I’ll take the comparative optimism.

Dinner Tonight: 

Beer-battered Sea Trout, Pickled Onion, Smoked Gouda Grits. 

The thought here, for both of you who care, was that the pickled onions stand in for the vinegar in the usual fish and chips. And the chips are represented by … shit, man — I’m just trying to get dinner on the table before 10 pm. There are no chips, representational or otherwise. Open a bag of Lay’s or something. Do I have to do EVERYTHING around here? FUCK.

Knowing little about 60s counterculture, I am forced to ask:

When The Zombies asked “What’s your name? Who’s your daddy?” was it as skeevy then as it’d be today?

Tagged: yes right? like 'this has never not been skeevy' right?

You sous-ing for me would be an insult to you, dude.  

This isn’t even a little true. Not these days. Regardless, you’re welcome to my toys any time, and I’ve got a line on a really nice pop-up space in Chicago.
