(xposts to ledge) I am probably one of those savages on narrow staircases as I am fat and clumsy and think that brushing into people is generally best avoided. Not sure if I expect anyone else to do anything though except just not elbow me too forcefully if it could be avoided by pausing for half a second.

dude at bus stop yesterday who walked right up to the wastebin, paused, and then instead of using the bin projectile-spat chewing gum over the pavement about 3 feet away, you are a disgusting savage, but I guess you were aiming for disgusting savagehood as anything else would just be uncool (see N.

yes sorry i know what it means it just always generates a moments pause. i think actually because i always initially think it’s short for the italian sign off un abbraccio which would rarely be appropriate in a work context.

Fizzles, Monday, 13 January 2020 20:45 (one week ago) link

This is why I don’t run in public, unless to a bus I’m scared to miss.


It’s not running in public, it’s specifically people who are very self important joggers and you absolutely must make way for them in the most crowded part of the city.

That’s all of them! I live bang in the centre of Z1 and the only healthy activity I aspire to in public is walking some kind of sighthound. Runners-up in self-important fitness assholism are Lincoln’s Inn legal types with early-morning personal trainer appointments in the Fields.

mark s, Tuesday, 14 January 2020 19:03 (one week ago) link

Misplaced by contemporary standards, but when you see a letter in a novel by Dickens or Trollope or whoever, that's exactly how it's written. So you gotta go with it, for full accuracy.

dickens definitely liked underlining his name too often, and i'm not claiming no literary figure in the 19th century ever mistakenby used a single comma to cut subject off from verb, but the correct form was this:
i:
"I Remain Your Stalwart And Loyal Friend,
Grawlix Unperson
ii: (or possibly, occasionally and ornately)
"I Remain, As God Is My My Witness, Your Stalwart And Loyal Friend,
Grawlix Unperson

All this agita around sign offs is just a veil for our collective misanthropy

calstars, Tuesday, 14 January 2020 21:53 (one week ago) link

A long time ago I worked for a British literary agent who varied her sign-offs from ‘yours sincerely’ to ‘best wishes’ to ‘love’ depending on the mood she was in with the recipient. British publishing is full of people micro-analysing written interaction, obviously. We took dictation of the letters and when we got to signing off, she’d mention that someone accustomed to ‘love’ was getting ‘yours sincerely’ that day and our reactions were oooOOOooo.
