Fridge Note to AG

In case you hadn't noticed, AG, you are in Conclusion, The Land of Thus, So and Other Summarized Arguments which borders the Kingdom of Endnotes. Most people get there by way of Introductory Paragraph, or sometimes through the Tunnel of Academic Abstract, and pass along the Road of Structured Arguments. There are frequent stops for refreshment in the towns of Evidence and Citation, with the occasional detour in the scenic Valley of Footnotes. Unfortunately for me, and others with whom you converse, AG prefers to skip all that travel business and take a quick jump into Conclusion. The odd aspect of the Land of Conclusion is that the less time you take to travel there, the less substantial the experience of being in Conclusion. In fact, it is frequently said that taking a short trip to Conclusion often results in a significant phonemic change in the traveler's pronunciation of the name of the land in which one has so recently and rapidly arrived.

In a largely unrelated matter, it is time I cut back on my coffee intake. I have said this before and I will say it again but today, I will drink no more coffee than I have so far.

AG will no longer participate on this blog.

Consider this your notice.

Chuckles said...

Ooooooo

I'm on notice.

Like a doormat?

possibly

Chuckles said...

Oh shit.

How could I forget that and leave myself vulnerable to my blog nemesis?

Just help AG get back to Digitopolis and allow her to continue on her journey. Whatever you do, don't allow her blogging to become obfuscated by The Everpresent Wordsnatcher.

That is exactly the story I had in mind when I wrote this, mathemagician.

The amusing thing is that this post seems to have actually pissed off teh AG.

Way to take yourself way too fucking seriously.
