"Never miss a chance to do good"--David Stanley
Ahhh the Alot! It's always cool to see references to Hyperbole and a Half in the wild. The forum Allie created for her blog fans was the place I found some of my best online friends.
Man, I miss Allie. That comic was the funniest comic the internet has ever seen, fight me on this. (hon. mention to Hark! A Vagrant)
Loved Allie's blog. Bought the book back in the day, definitely worth the read for fans of the blog. If I remember correctly, it had a handful of stories that didn't make it onto the website.
Alot! So glad to see you're still rolling along :)Happy to know you're doing better as well.
Yes! I just recommended the Hyperbole and a Half book to a library patron when I was on the desk a couple Saturdays ago (and another patron, who did not engage with me, was EXTREMELY happy and amused). I also sent that patron for Jennie Lawson's books, telling them that there are times when I'm reading that blog or those books that I suddenly start laughing until I cry and my husband has to wait until I can breathe again to find out what's going on.Glad you're feeling better, Janet!
Ew-ew! (raises hand) I know the answer. Alot is a biblical term, as in, after his wife turned into a pillar of stone and he walked away; she was technically alot.
Aw Allie! Wherever you are Allie we miss you and hope you're well ❤️
We missed you alot.Of course, we missed you too, Janet.
Glad you're doing better!
I need an Alot in my life! He can sit on my desk and watch me correct my own typing faux pas.
Aw, that Alot reminds me of a wonderful book I picked up at my college bookstore long ago, The Garden of Eloquence: A Rhetorical Bestiary by Willard R. Espy. That book is alot of fun, though Anastrophe still haunts my nightmares. Glad you're on the mend, Janet!
This is great!
Hee! I was wondering about the typo on a lot (not that I would ever point it out). Then I hopped over to the blog through the link you provided and read about Alot. Hilarious. Thanks for the read.
Awww, I still love that Alot.
I'm glad to hear you're feeling better. My wife and I both had that crap that's going around, and we were running on fumes for 3 weeks.
Love Alot! And glad to hear you are on the mend, Janet.
