WTF?

I think people are losing sight of what acronyms are all about. In an email I received a day or two ago, a sentence started, "For your FYI . . ." I am hoping this was just an oversight.

My first belly laugh of the day -- thanks ;-)
It's not a sad life I have -- just a busy one. It's 10.45 pm here in Mumbai.
Pardon the 'Queen Victoria' style -- dashes help to avoid decisions about which punctuation mark to use! Oh well, exclamation marks can add a fake brightness too!

Zarine: Thanks so much for checking out my blog. I really appreciate it.

It's busy here too. It's funny (or sad) when you look back at the projections of all the leisure time that modern conveniences were supposed to give us. I'm beginning to think that true leisure went out with artificial lighting.

Come back soon.
