National Punctuation Day

Language Hat announced that it is National Punctuation Day on August 22, which means in the Central Time Zone, where I'm located, there's only a half hour left of this special day.

LH also provided a link to the history of punctuation.

It's funny how events can converge, because I've just started reading Eats, Shoots & Leaves: The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation.

In fact, since I'm posting this important news right now, my husband is reading that book, and I've just informed him that it's National Punctuation Day. So it's a weird coincidence for both of us.

Oh, how fabulous! I'm afraid I missed the day, but what a fun idea!

(And also, "Eats Shoots and Leaves" is an interesting read.)

The woman who wrote it is really blessed--she already had some good gigs going on, then wrote a nerdy book that became a number-one bestseller.
