Wooo! You can do it J.S.!
Friday, December 16th, 2005 - 08:41 pm (UTC)
Aww, thanks...I appreciate support from someone who's already done. :)
Friday, December 16th, 2005 - 07:06 pm (UTC)
Holy crap! Well done, you.
Friday, December 16th, 2005 - 07:11 pm (UTC)
Wait. In Times New Roman?
Friday, December 16th, 2005 - 08:43 pm (UTC)
Of course in Times New Roman. I don't subscribe to your Geramond bias, you font elitist.
Friday, December 16th, 2005 - 08:46 pm (UTC)
Hah! Font elitist forsooth: Times New Roman is so 1992, you poor unfashionable thing!
Friday, December 16th, 2005 - 08:49 pm (UTC)
I may be unfashionable, but at least I won't be gouging my eyes out with a spoon while attempting to write five pages more than I should. Besides, Garamond is sooooo 2001. At this point, Times New Roman is retro....which makes me the fashionable "thing," now doesn't it?
Friday, December 16th, 2005 - 08:55 pm (UTC)
Absolutely not. Garamond is clearly a classic font, which retains its fashionability over time far better than a cheesy, played-out font like TNR. Garamond is the minimalist wood chair to your brown tweed barcalounger*. Besides, accidentally writing 5 too many pages makes me look innocent and perfect. Now go away and let me do my work! See you in 2 hours.

*Furniture as metaphor? Sounds like a dissertation to me.

Dissertation? Hell, that's your first two books right there. Under your metaphor, it would obviously follow that the Federal Theatre Project would be a colorful shag carpet. Perhaps we can discuss this when we meet in a few short hours - I'm sure Mary and everyone else will be faaaascinated.

Mwah. :)
