Re: list of boyfriend rules

^I don't know, I've only heard it discussed. I think it might be a backwards question mark, I just like the sound of it. There are a few suggested punctuations to denote sarcasm and irony. There's also the interrobang, which is a great name for a punctuation mark, and is a combination of the question mark and exclamation point, saving us all from having to do this?!

Re: list of boyfriend rules

I like the idea of it, for certain situations. For the mostpart though, I don't want to denote my irony and sarcasm as such, because a lot of the humour is in others parsing the comments and coming to the realisation that somebody is being sarcastic on their own.

The interrobang does sound like a useful one though, because some fool designed keyboards so they are miles away from each other.

^Apparently a lot of keyboards in the 60s had interrobangs.

Gosh you are right, how strange that something like that would come and go within a decade. It's still available in a few fonts apparently.

I'm also trying to get at her kitty.

^ OK, so now the burning question is, what is the collective name for you two going to be? Kestroo?
