  1. Lia. This entry proves once and for all that all Northwestern students really are that nerdy. Don’t worry, it’s not just you. I’m nerdy for understanding. And laughing at it. *sigh*

  2. I’ve always been a huge fan of the Oxford comma, as it was called when I learned it, for many reasons. I’ve often found myself reading a confusing, long, or conjunction-filled list with much confusion caused by lack of an Oxford comma.

    Yet my 12th grade teacher was unconvinced, and she was the first English teacher I had had that did not make use of my friend from a major university in southeast England. In fact, she continually edited it out of my papers. This continued until I brought proof (namely, example sentences), my MLA handbook, and the opinions of other English teachers in the school. Now, I believe she too uses the helpful punctuation mark.

  3. Wow, I didn’t know that was called a serial comma or an Oxford comma. I didn’t know it had any name, actually. I normally use it. Fascinating Wikipedia article, though.
