Myriad

Do you have any idea when you are supposed to say "A myriad of things" as opposed to just "myriad things"? I have never found a clear, understandable definition. Irksome.

But I do have many things to tell y'all, in no particular order.

1. Blogger screws up my leading all the time. I hate it. (For those of you not proofreader losers such as my own self? Leading is the space between the lines. I am literally trying to see between the lines.) You can't put in a picture or a drop quote or ANYTHING without your type getting all squishy. Unacceptable. Next year, when I do my health blog? I am going to Typepad.

2. There is a guy? Here in this town? Who has TWO purebred BORDER COLLIE doggie-doos for FREE. FREE. I talked to him last night, and it turns out he knows the hoo-ha at our real estate agency, and he's gonna see if he can't get that "no dogs" policy lifted. Can you imagine? I always said I'd never get a purebred unless it was a rescue thing and it IS! Trying not to get too excited about my new dog, who I love more than life itself.

3. Today is haircut day. My grandfather always used to ask me, "Why don't you just get a butch haircut?" (It always annoyed my grandmother that he said funny things. But you know what? I remember them all. Aunt Mary, what was the thing he said about Jumbo's ass? That one is escaping me.) I may take him up on that. I think all that dyeing out of a box ruined it. I will certainly let you know, as it could be a terrible consequence of not spending.

4. I've got more, but I'm late for my 45-second commute. Every day on the drive to work, I think "Get me to the church on time!" heh. I am hilarious in my own head.

"I am hilarious in my own head." That cracks me up. I feel the same way. But then when I start writing, sometimes it seems so dry compared to how it seems in my head. Weird.

The "leading" is what finally forced me to Typepad. And it's almost never down. You'll love it.

Good luck with the haircut. When I had my hair woes a couple months ago, Bronwyn told me to get a pixie, to cut out all the damaged crap. I didn't go quite that short, but it did feel good to cut out a lot of the crap.

You're hilarious in my head too.

A "myriad" is 10,000 of something. It spews up from Classical Greek, as in "Xenophon led his myriad through Persia."

I always say "myriad of things" and never "myriad things."

I'm definitely going away from Blogger - and it's mainly because of the leading, I bet I spent 30 minutes mucking around with it on Wednesday because, you know it is important that my blog looks nice, and NOTHING worked. I finally just had to give up and let my list be all scrunched together - it looks awful. Such a bad reflection on me. My hair, on the other hand...

The Border Collie will be a good choice for you if want LOTS of exercise! They get neurotic without it! Enjoy!

LOL, "I am hilarious in my own head." Cracked me up. How did the hair cut go? Wha's the new dog's name? :-)
