If you read one thing this week…
Seriously, read 6 Mind-Blowing Ways Zombies and Vampires Explain America. Need I say more? (via Kait Nolan)

This’ll put the fear of God into you
Or at least the fear of inadequate proofreading. (via @techsurgeons on Twitter)

Thought Provoking
Not only do I have problems with time management, I’m one of those people who has a lot of trouble with time in general. Though I usually did quite well in school with little effort, I actually didn’t learn to tell time until sometime in middle school. I have trouble calculating time zones, conceptualizing daylight savings, and when my husband–then fiance–got out of boot camp and insisted on communicating in 24-hr time, I was totally boggled. Yet I wasn’t boggled by Beyond The Punch-Clock Life: The Tyranny Of Modern Time II which talks about the measuring of time as we know it in a historical sense and seems like it’s leading somewhere very interesting in future posts.

And her petticoat!
“…and her petticoat; I hope you saw her petticoat, six inches deep in mud, I am absolutely certain.” Well, yes, Louisa, but that might have something to do with the fact that It’s Raining Men, Jane Austen Style over at Kait Nolan’s blog. (via subscription)

  1. Most of this cracked me up, but the proofreading thing is priceless! Wouldn’t it be cool to find a list of the funniest typos in fiction? LOL

    I knew how to read before Kindergarten but was totally baffled by the clock for a very long time. Mom LOVES to tell the story of how she would just say “Time for bed!” just about anytime I was being annoying, and off I would trot, oblivious. I’m still not great at it. I also have to physically hold up either my right or left arm and LOOK AT IT as a visual cue when someone asks me “left or right?” So I’m going to say it is OK to be both smart and a moron. It’s probably some sign of genius. Yeah… that’s it… GENIUS.
