I think I'll celebrate it by annoying even more people than usual with my email and business sign corrections. Oh, sorry. Correction's and Email's. :)

I miss Reph, a long-ago AW member who once mentioned that she has weekly correspondence with Time magazine pointing out each issue's punctuation and grammar mistakes.

Maryn, who's done that with a few local businesses*

* One offered car stereo Taylor-maid for your vehicle and I simply could not let it slide by

There was a local GLBT newspaper that was so riddled with errors, they decided to be "ironic" and started offering prizes to people for spotting the most errors each week. Easier and cheaper than proofreading, I guess.

It's also National Strike Day in France. Someone told me she couldn't get in to see Notre Dame. Couldn't get near the place as there were no taxis available.

Maybe they are on strike due to bad punctuation?!.

And you left the punctuation off the thread title on purpose, yes?

Great!

Can we have a National Capitalization Conventions Day; I'm so tired of People thinking that every Document is their own Personal Emily Dickinson Poem.
