This is a story about Latin.


I have a coupon for a free muffin. Expires today.

I put different music on my Ipod last night. Crap, I have a lot of music. Stuff that goes on the Ipod, however, has to be loud enough to make it on the train. No subtle stuff. This is unfortunate, since Bach is sometimes (offen?) what the doctor ordered.

I need to figure out the lunch situation. It's nice outside. Maybe I will get a salad and eat it outside. I also have a free muffin. I need to get something done. I think I will get my muffin, finish something, then go get lunch.

I also need to send off the rent check.

I have a muffin.

Note that, in the gzt style guide, the first letter of product names, company names, etc is capitalized. The gzt diaries say Ebay, Ipod, etc rather than what the ad copy of the companies in question dictate.

"Who are you and how did you get in here?"
"I'm a locksmith. And I'm a locksmith."

I need the Police Squad! DVD. Seriously. I need to spread the message. I think we had them on tape growing up, there was a marathon of all 8 and we taped them or something. We did that for Green Hornet, too.

No, I think I'll stick with mine where etc., as an abbreviation, has a period at the end.

Other style guides may allow for it. Many older texts will use &c. which is basically the same thing.
