~@#$%^&*

introducing the interrobang or interabang (thanks, A!)

a nonstandard English-language punctuation mark intended to combine the functions of the question mark and the exclamation point. The ligature is a superimposition of those two marks.

alternatively, this is what I feel like when filling out graduate school applications.

(Yeah, I know interrobang just sounds just soooo dirty, giggling like a 12-year-old boy is often encouraged!)

It is my nonstandard day (hence nonstandard punctuation).

I don't have work. I don't have class. It is my first day completely "off" since Labor Day. It's been a "break" in the making (so to speak). I've been counting it down. I've been dreaming about it. Now that IT is finally here...

Happy Fall Break, Y'all!

I have:
--officially crossed a graduate school off my list (my issues/decision)
--"applied" as much as currently possible to three FOUR schools
--printed out a lot of information for my "recommenders"
--watched too much CNN
--learned a new punctuation mark (like I have researched it even)

I have not:
--left the house
--made my bed
--put on "real" clothes (although I have showered)
--written or edited anything!
--napped

Of course, I shall be writing or editing or napping soon enough.

My favorite punctuation. Maybe. Well, no. I love too much punctuation.

But you're welcome.

I smell a new collaborative poem...
