Grammar blog

Argh, I think my sense of grammar is slipping. I need to find a good
grammar blog that’s above the level of “your” versus “you’re”. I need
to read a lot of well-edited work instead of just reading blogs and
scientific papers. My textbooks are pretty okay, although they’re a
bit dry. Hmm. I need literature!

It doesn’t help that I’m a geek. Geeks do weird things to punctuation,
too. For example, it’s hard for me not to put punctuation outside
quoted strings, such as the “you’re” in the first paragraph. I can’t
remember how to punctuate embedded sentences. I may just go and get
myself a copy of “Eats, Shoots, and Leaves”…

Mumble.
