Speaking of Missed Periods

I don’t want to make excuses. Actually, that’s not true; I totally want to make excuses. And here they are:

I haven’t posted anything on this blog for ages and ages, and it’s not my fault.  I didn’t mention this earlier, but I had a baby—and it’s totally her fault I haven’t had time to post. I know they say babies are super easy and not time consuming at all, but I must have had a dud! My baby demands all this time and attention, and she’s so darn cute that I’ve been spending my time staring at her little face.

It’s not all the baby’s fault, though. I also have to blame Amazon Prime. I just signed up, and that made me have to binge watch Transparent and Mozart in the Jungle, and now I am totally addicted to Downton Abbey. I’ve been watching so much Downton that my inner monologue is in a British accent. At least I sound smarter and more cultured to myself.

However, today is National Grammar Day, and dammit Grammar, I just can’t quit you! Also, I miss all my blogging friends.

Since I have nothing meaningful to contribute to the grammar world today, I’d like to recommend a great book on writing and grammar: Steven Pinker’s The Sense of Style. It’s fantastic.

Have a wonderful National Grammar Day!
