“The comma is essentially a Give Way sign – you would slow down and check both ways before entering the next part of the sentence. Obviously the full stop is a Stop sign. But what the semicolon is, continuing with the traffic analogy, is like a flashing red light signal. So we are more compelled to slow down, a rarity in the traffic, but we realise that one road leading out will connect quite logically into the next road. There’s a dovetailing that goes on, different from a comma.”—My pal Toby’s interview with David Astle is the best ever!
to everyone who’s ordered a copy of FF this past week! I dropped a huge pile of packages in the postbox on my lunch break today, then went and got a giant Slurpee. The Slurpee isn’t relevant to your orders, except for the fact that it was really hot today and I walked to the post office because I CARE ABOUT YOU AND YOUR MAIL! x Brodie
dont teach little girls to hate other little girls. dont tell them other girls are mean and catty and gossip and talk behind their backs. dont tell them girls will steal their boyfriends and take all the blame off the boys who leave. dont tell them boys are better for any reason. dont teach lil girls to hate lil girls because they’ll grow into women who hate other women and there’s enough people in the world who hate women, thanks
