Randomly Amongst the Blobs

Okay, I'm not trying to play like I'm all old skool and cooler than everyone else, but let's get a couple of things straight here:

1. I don't know about you, but I got my love for using CAPITAL LETTERS as EMPHASIS from a one Mr. Dave Barry, Pulitzer Prize-winning writer, NOT from Abescott.

2. Additionally, the first hundred times I saw "(!)" used as a "holy shit" device were in books and columns penned by the same Dave Barry, Pulitzer Prize-winning humor columnist.

The first time I ever read Dave Barry was purely by chance. I happened upon his column in my Sunday newspaper, and laughed the whole way through. I tried to read it to my family that night, but I couldn't, because I would keep laughing hysterically and couldn't get the words out. It was about suits. About how not to wear brown suits. He mentioned Ronald Reagan and cigars in it. That's all I can remember.

So I don't mean to say that the itnernet doesn't own (!!) now -- just that Stephen Hawking reads Dave Barry. And so should you.
