I'm a Graduate!

I graduated last Saturday! YAY! It's taken me 5 long years to get a degree! Because I've only been an English major for 2 of them, my English professors all say, "You're already graduating?" But because I was a biology major 5 years ago, my biology professors say, "You're still here?" Well, NOT ANYMORE! (For more on this very exciting subject, click here.)

Here's a BEFORE shot (I must say, I look rather tired.):
And here's an AFTER shot:
Here I am with my dad. He graduated too. Not really -- he works at UWG so he had to sit on the field with all of the graduates. It's actually pretty neat that he was not only at my graduation, but in it! Everyone who could make it, came. Thanks, guys. I couldn't have graduated without you. Love you!

Congrats! (I guess this occassion deserves an exclamation ... mark.) Had a friend who graduated on Sat. and he said the speaker was a whopper. Said that it rained a little on him, but he kept on talking. This could have been rather dangerous if he had been president. I should know. I'm somehow related to the president who got pneumonia from speaking in the rain so long at his inaugural address. Probably explains a few more things about me than I would like to admit.

I'd like to point out that there are two ways to describe a mark of exclamation:

Main Entry: exclamation point Function: noun
: a mark ! used especially after an interjection or exclamation to indicate forceful utterance or strong feeling -- called also exclamation mark

This entry was found on Merriam-Webster online. Yes, I realize it's not the definitive dictionary, but know this, Kesler: The main entry is exclamation POINT!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, of course it is. The dictionary is a resource that facilitates (makes easier) our understanding of words and how they function. Since most people don't think long enough to realize that ! is more than a point, that it is a mark, it would not be helpful to make the word "exclamation mark" the main entry. Those who need the help the most (those who do not stop and think about what they're looking for) wouldn't find it. So, I'm not surprised that "exclamation point" is the main entry. Majority rules in this instance. That doesn't mean, though, that the majority is right. And it's obvious here that the majority is wrong. For example: you wouldn't say question point, would you? That wouldn't make any sense. Neither should exclamation point. Thank you, and good-night.

Thanks for explaining the word "facilitates" for me because I was having a rough time of it. I sooo need lessons from you on how to be smart. . . I can see now that it's pointless for me to ever tell you what I think or know. Good night, indeed!

Geez. It really DOES make a difference whether it's an exclamation mark or point...
Put those brains to use to "facilitate" the lives of people starving in the Congo, how 'bout it?

Hahahahahahahahaha! Well, you're re"marks" concerning exclamation notation are, in fact, "point"less, since exclamations are indeed marks and not points. Now, "'bout" the people starving in the Congo... I know enough to know that I am neither qualified nor quantified to tackle such intricate international socio-economic problems. I am but a lowly English scholar. I must confine my expert pronouncements to issues of English language and literature. I reserve my prayers for the starving Congolese.

Hey, Jason -- YOUR expert pronouncements may not be quite so expert, judging by YOUR last comment. :)

Good call, Sara. Good call.

Um, I was trying to find the place where I post a congratulations to Sara about graduating. Somehow I ended up in an English Forum. I love you SA! And to think, mom thought I would be the one to not graduate (or at least have a difficult time in doing so). I think C. Lawson thinks we're a good looking family. :o)
