I do smileys a lot (:
Backwards smileys (:
Oh, and I just realized that my smileys can double as punctuation marks, because I didn't use a period on either of those two sentences.

Just not sure, you know...anyway, an ellipse is three dots in a row...like these...and, to be anal about it, at the end of a sentence it has to have four dots...in the middle of a sentence it has three...because at the end it's the ellipse plus a period at the end of the sentence....

are ellipsis' not used soley for quoting?
i was lead to believe that they are used when one quotes material from another source yet does not want to add the whole thing, therefor an elipsis is inserted to represent the un-qouted text (omision).

Example:

Bruce dear, "alot" isn't really a word, although I can imagine a number of reasons you might think it is.

According to Wiktionary, "alot" is "a common misspelling of a lot." The entry goes on to say that "when it appears intentionally in print, it is generally either representing the original spelling in a work quoted, or is an attempt by the author to convey poor education in the character using it."

According to your statement, you are spelling it correctly "a lot", even though you appear to be thinking that "alot" is the true spelling, therefore, in your mind, you are actually misspelling. I can only conclude you are either messing with this thread, or trying to mess with me since you know I'm back from my travels.

Do you still keep a little bottle of bourbon in your desk drawer at work?
