Honor Roll

Honor Roll

“Let’s consider the most versatile piece of punctuation — the dash. That’s right — I’m talking about the horizontal line formed by typing two hyphens in a row. It’s the mark that — unlike commas, periods, semicolons and all the others — doesn’t seem to be subject to any rules.”

— Ben Yagoda,

(I once included my love for and overuse of the em dash in my bio — because somehow that would help people know more about me?)

My Writing Elsewhere…

  • Kate Spade announced a new brand: Saturday.

  • They’re either “oi!” or “ow, my back!” — I can’t be sure.

  • I wouldn’t mind the stuffed animals strewn about the house if ours were all

  • I’m digging Sigerson Morrison’s new line for Anthropologie, (Can I pull off wedge booties, I wonder?)

  • I’m not usually of the monochromatic, pared-down simplicity sort, but perhaps if I had some of , I would give it a go.

  • On second thought…

Because it’s awesome. [via ]

    Always love these, must read about the dash, I believe I use it in every post, probably committing more crimes against grammar–uh-oh!

    Hah! Tom Hanks made it into my weekly roundup too. I love him oh so much. In fact, we watched a totally depressing movie on Saturday night and I needed to watch this again as a cheer-up buffer.

    Also, the new Kate Spade line looks fantastic. Just another reason to get excited for the spring.

    Thank you so much for the article on the em dash- that and the ellipsis are my favorite.
