oxford comma is the way, the truth, and the light

starlick | nom-chompsky | real-jj | brutallyhonestbabes | nom-chompsky:

Oxford comma, I love you truly, madly, and deeply.

 My news editor constantly berates me for using this, but he calls it a “serial comma.” Damn you, AP Style, daaaaaamn youuuuu!!!

Do journalists hate it because it takes up valuable character/copy space?

The Oxford comma is the light of my life, the fire of my loins, and my sin and soul.

Um, Tumblr? This is why Nelle is one of the most amazing people ever. (Brb totally copying your eye makeup. Also fake-tattooing quotation marks on my wrists. If  anybody thinks I am insane at the sort-of-gig I am playing at the coffee shop tonight, well, too bad for them.)

Knitted quotation marks.

For making air quotes.
Awesome.

“Entre guillemets”


Everyone’s seen this tattoo already, I’m sure: but I love it so much. It’s simple, elegant, geeky, and provocative: it says, I am a statement, I am a story, I have something to say.

I have so massively much love for this, I can’t even tell you.

OH MY SAINTED AUNT. *geekgasm* ♥

This is my first ever tattoo, I got it today.
It’s an Ampersand in the Hoefler Text (italic) typeface. I love Ampersands because they’re so beautifully and artistically designed. I study Graphic Design and Illustration so i suppose this is a bit nerdy of me to get this but the design is a good balance of both, i would say. It’s also one of my favorite songs by Amanda Palmer.
I love it so much and i can’t stop looking at my wrist <3

So much geeky squee for this tattoo, you cannot even imagine. PUNCTUATION FTW. (Also Amanda Palmer! Yay!) I really love wrist tattoos, despite them apparently hurting like all get-out.

leahmackindotcom: utterly fantastic Etsy shop. Am overwhelmed with want. (Everything is very reasonable, dare I say inexpensive, so perhaps if I manage to sell an album or two at Merlefest I&#8217;ll adorn my satchel with punctuation badges.)

I would get this tattoo. It says so many things: it says &#8220;speak&#8221;, it says &#8220;listen&#8221;, it says &#8220;I am a story&#8221;, and something about the way the quotation marks spread from the shoulder-blades like wings thrills me.
