The AQI in is at 239 (in the purple range). It's never been like this here. Hoping for rain or wind to carry it all away.

yeah, definitely a pet peeve. i guess that some people have grammar pet peeves (such as improper use of commas), but i have pet peeves about being reduced to a grammar checker only. as such, i go out of my way to avoid commenting on grammar as much as possible.

I know people are being kind and polite when they ask me to review a doc for style and grammar, but I admit this reduction of my role to a superficial human grammarly offends me. I am now trying to deconstruct this document, or somehow go beyond just making it pretty.

This post helps me think through an upcoming presentation I’m giving this Thursday morning. I find it easier to write it out so that the words are in my mind.

okay, I admit that I have a problem with post length. This post I’m writing is 8,700 words. I need to trim down at least 2,000 more words, but what can I possibly cut? not sure when I developed such long-windedness in my writing...
