Except... those of you who were there and heard me talk about Tess and her migraines, William F. Buckley Jr., etc- ... you know now why I use fonts and colors... I use those to try to convey the same complex intonation and other verbal gymnastics I use when speaking... to give my written text the same "color" and intensity I have when speaking *grin*



Happy Birthday Catie,
it was great to meet you
fun to be with the others!

I figure if I post a few more vlogs here of me talking and ranting... it'll give the context for why I go to such efforts to use typographical elements to represent the way I "sound."

Tess and I have always been odd that way... we write as we speak, and we speak as we write. In Bio I was leading a group of people preparing for a presentation, and they were astounded by how I could speak of ductless glands one minute, and use a colorful colloquialism the next... well, that's who I am.

As per our conversations last night, Buckley always stayed high brow, Bill M. stays low... I mix the two with wanton abandon.
