Doggone It!

Now that the Dog Days* of summer are ending (July 24-August 24, by some counts), and a reign of lassitude or howling frenzy is coming to a close, I offer the salubrious effects of my serial-comma-laden, I Leap for Kierkegaard-promoted, super-hyphenated blog.

* Caniculares dies, at whose start the Romans, it is said sacrificed a dog to appease the rage of Sirius, the Dog Star, brightest in the firmament except for the sun.

With the Dog Days behind us, we now don't have to take things so Siriusly, eh? (woof! OUCH!)

know about the vampire weekend song? i rather think i first heard of it on your blog anyway but a search turned up nothing.. actually, i've only just read the lyrics, and it's got nothing much to do with the comma, really, except the title of the song is Oxford Comma so I figured you'd better be made aware. if you hadn't been, previously. as the reigning authority.

Michael T,
Thanks was not aware; need to look into this. I just became a fan of The Serial Comma on Facebook and am a member of the Serial Comma Society on Facebook. How's Thailand?
