Poim

I think there was too much!

I think there was too much!

You can direct my question, direct my question.

Oh boy.

Detachable manners all know how to play.

The ball still nearly broke hobby and Sindh.

Hobby and Sindh.

Hobby and Sindh.

But I have almost my ticket hobby.

Oh, the lineup was shot!

The lineup was shit!

I think there was too much!

.

The right way to play all season.

Praise be to the squirrel god.

An update

I have been very busy as of late.

It’s not too much fun particularly when you have deadlines to meet.

But if I didn’t have deadlines, I wouldn’t be motivated.

I’d say things are about 80% done as of today, April 30th. I need to make punctuation checks and go through again before submission on the 17th.

I’m particularly obsessive when it comes to grammar. Too obsessive actually.

PS: 100 points!

Dammit Donald

The news that Donald Trump has banned April Fools’ Day did not come as a surprise to me.

He hates even the slightest jokey comments made about him. No doubt he’s pushing to make jokes about him illegal 365 days a year, which is a massive blow to free speech and yet more evidence to suggest he is a totalitarian.

Not to mention he’s the biggest fool of them all.

Sin City

So my brother goes to Vegas tomorrow. Setting off to Manchester Airport at 3.

I’m very jealous.

Partially because I’ve never left the UK. I feel so inadequate, being that there are people a decade younger than me and already travelling the world.

That and it’s Sin City. There’s a bit of everything there. From Rome to Egypt. From New York to pirates. It’s more than slots and roulette. One of the few times that going “family-friendly” helped.

I swear once I get the means…

One year here…

Well, my anniversary was yesterday but regardless.

When I founded this blog, I set out to write one post a day, every day, for the first year. And I kept to that, with the exception of two weeks when I was on holiday.

But now the workload’s mounting and blogging everyday is, to be fair, an arduous task. There were many times I just pulled something out of my… ear. Those days are gone. From now on I will only be blogging when something hits me, be it inspiration, a need to rant or a bus. I could blog three days in a row. I could go two weeks without blogging. This will help cultivate my imagination and free myself up for the task of writing, editing and reediting 15,000 words between May and September.

This doesn’t mean goodbye. No it doesn’t. I’m just going to be a bit less active, especially from May through to September.

If you want to keep in touch with me, I’m at Facebook and on Instagram.

Ciao for now…

Camel toe

2011_trampeltier_1528Yes, WordPress automatically corrects all instances of the spelling with only one capital to the CamelCase version.

Nobody cares about CamelCase!

There really is no need, especially in this day and age where lowercasewebaddress.es and #hashtags are common and easily read. Except, of course, if there is ambiguity. It’s not 1994 anymore. The internet is no longer something new and exotic. wedontcare is as easy to understand as WeDontCare.

How anally retentive can one site get? Does Nintendo go around autocorrecting all comments on Miiverse referring to “Pokemon”? Does TMZ do the same for “Beyonce”? People can spell a word CamelCase, with one capital, with or without an accent. It really doesn’t matter.

Please stop it.

The new WordPress editor

My God.

You’ve changed something that didn’t need to be changed. Once again.

Let’s see: You’ve moved post settings to the right. I’ve been on WP for almost a year and the lefty leftness of the post settings is something burned into my mind. Now you’ve moved it to the right, which is nigh-on blasphemy. My left-in-all-respects brain cannot handle this!

Now we’ve also got tons and tons of white space around the editor. It looks as ugly and unprofessional as the post settings looks plain. If you really power 27% of the internet as you claim, you could go for a much sleeker look rather than lock up a bunch of GCSE IT pupils for an hour with only the web layout option on Word. On a computer running Vista.

What are you going to do next? Change the logo to a modernist W farted out in roughly two seconds by an overpaid design consultant in the city? That’s probably what you’ll do. I’m surprised you haven’t had any angry letters from a certain German automobile manufacturer yet.

For the last time: If it’s not broke- don’t bother fixing it!

EDIT: Interestingly, the “WordPress” in the title autocorrected to the official CamelCase version. I have no use for CamelCase. Why force it on random bloggers?
