My drug of choice is writing––writing, art, reading, inspiration, books, creativity, process, craft, blogging, grammar, linguistics, and did I mention writing?

Saturday Potpourri (Grammar Themed)

State of the Blog- The state is pretty stative.  I'm going to keep doing what I'm doing.  I'm going to keep appreciating the hell out of anyone who shares, "likes", "+1"'s, recommends the site, or comments on something.


When I was a kid, my English teacher looked my way and said, "Name two pronouns." I said, "Who, me?"

An NPR bit, so it's actually audio: it is a review of Eats Shoots and Leaves and focuses quite a bit on its author.  It's actually not a particularly...kind review, and maybe should have been more at home in last week's potpourri.  

This kind of brings the conservative position on the life/choice debate into "creepy" territory.

Most people are already familiar with The Oatmeal and it's particularly awesome comic about "A lot vs Alot," but if you haven't seen it yet, I can't recommend it enough. 

[Do you want to be featured in potpourri along with a few words from me about how awesome you are?  Do you know a great writing link that I should share? Please send it to me at chris.brecheen@gmail.com, and I will post it along with a shout out singing your praises (unless, of course, you don't want one).  There are four caveats to this.  Please read them before you send me stuff.  If I've posted anything that you feel is "yours" (or "your client's" --eeep!) please just tell me what you would like me to do.  Most everything here that doesn't have an embedding code within its source is some kind of meme, so it would be quite difficult for me to do proper attribution.]
