What Do You Do?

I was just on the phone and we got to the point in the conversation where it was time to say goodbye and hang up. You know, when you say the stretched out "alright" or "ok" while exhaling at the same time. Anyway, right before we were about to say "goodbye" the call was dropped. Was I supposed to call back just to say bye? If I decided to call back, would I start the phone call with "hi?" ["Hey! I'm just calling to say bye."]

For the record, I didn't call back. But he did.


I just received a contract renewal from my landlord with a post-it note attached that reads: "Please sing and return." He didn't even write which tune.

No Thank You

I know I haven't been posting very frequently lately. I've been away and my laptop was being fixed. Update: It's fixed.

But while I've been gone I've had a lot of time to think. One of the greatest grammatical mistakes people make is when they say the phrase, "No thank you" or "No thanks."

Almost everyone forgets that there is a comma after the "No." What you mean to say when you turn down another piece of over-cooked, under-flavored chicken is "No, (but) thank you." Without the comma you are essentially saying, "No (I don't) thank you."

This becomes even more awful when you say, "No thanks, but thank you." Pleeasseee!

I have a feeling someone will object to this claim so let me just say, no thanks, I don't want to hear it.

Happy Birthday!

Text Messaging Idea

Here is an email I sent to David Pogue - the Tech Columnist at The New York Times:
Check it out on his blog here.

While we're on the topic of cell phones, how about a way to send a voicemail to another person without having to call them? How often do you want to tell them something that is too long for a text (or your fingers are tired) and don't care to hear that "nothing" is up and that they are "good." - ?

Also, are there still people who don't know how to leave a voicemail that we need that lady to be giving instructions? Has anyone ever even "paged" the person they were calling? What does that even do - send out a message over the PA system where you are and tell you to call your mother?!

Uch, I miss beepers. They were so much simpler...and pointless...and acceptable to wear on your belt.
