The Cure for Loneliness ... Ain't It Da Truf?


Dilbert

I usually find Dilbert funny or sadly illustrative of professional experiences - but this was profound. And funny.

I'll dig up my favourite Dilbert later when I have time and try to post it- maybe tomorrow. Clipped it 10 or 12 years ago. It's a classic. ;-)

p.s. Sometimes lonely is good. You get a lot more work done.... ;-)

Hmmmm, Dilbert and Dogbert talk to each other like an old married couple. Disturbing . . .

(Spent weekend with in-laws. Viewing someone else's marriage from the outside . . . )

So true. It's profundity lies in who we are, books truly longing to be read.

I relish taking in a good, fascinating volume myself--even re-reading it over time to discover something new I hadn't before.

Indeed, Anon. I certainly like it when someone takes the time to savor the language on each of "my" pages. Too often, we speed read through connections and miss the little things. The quirks. The unique bits. eh?

But, you needs must be smacked. Abuse of (it's) is a Cheek pet peeve!

Its... Monty Python's Flying Cir-CUS

I do know how you love yer possessive third-person neutered pronouns.

whitenoise said...

Actually, that one is a contraction of "it is" and should therefore be "it's". Even a backwoods redneck like me knows that...

CheekierMeSly said...

Wrongo, Whitenoise. The word "its" is referring profundity's nature, so "its" is possessive and no apostrophe should be present.

Maybe your both write.

Kristin said...

Oh Sheena, you make an excellent point. But wouldn't that be 'bolth' write? (one I'm especially peevish about : )

whitenoise said...

Really, Cheek?

I read that as "It is... Monty Python's Flying Cir-CUS" , but I just stoopid pile-it.

White noise blew that one. Its in the way it was used was definitely possessive!
