Douglas, don't use up all your punctuation at once. It's got to last you the whole year.
Hi Peter! I suspect that you see punctuation where I see Japanese characters. This could be because of your browser's default character encoding settings, or - and I find this much more likely - it could be because you're trying to impose your hegemonic imperialist anglo-saxon occicentric phallogocentric orientalism upon me. (Again!)In other punctuation news, this year I'm going to be using lots more exclamation marks! It's a way of expressing my passion for life! And it's a self-fulfilling virtuous cycle! Try it! I'm already feeling the benefit! I have so much more energy!
