when worlds collide: copy-editing and porn  
Great, funny article in Salon.com, written by someone who took a freelance job copy-editing "jerk-off letters for a skin mag." You should be able to get a day-pass to the magazine if you're not subscribed.

Is "doggie style" hyphenated?

Dude. I would totally do that.

Damn. Where's a job like that when I need one?

That was a life-enhancing read, to say the very least.

What's a threat to my virtue, though, is the ads for Powells.com which guard today's day pass. I am not to think of Powell's until I sell some books, as we have put as many book shelves as we have empty wall space in the house, not to mention the barn, and as for the books, well, some of them have never even been read including great numbers of garden books with Powell's clearance tags on them.

Julia, finding online porn a much healthier addiction than Powell's

This is timely, for me.
I'm contemplating applying for an administrative position with a sex toys retailer. I'm sure there's not much that's really unusual about the job but I've been trying to imagine what sort of interview questions I'd be asked.

I so felt the whole "to comma or not to comma...or to un-comma altogether" debate he had with himself. (Oooh, but it gives it so much punch. *nod nod*) Ah, the comma. Self-styled stylists do well to observe carefully their use of the comma--and the period! Good God! It's all about building and dissipating tension! Sometimes it's all too much thud, thud, thud--all through the whole thing! No impact! Or flowflowflow--all through the whole thing! No impact!

note to self: work on exclamation marks.
