An Obsession

I have an obsession. Some would have me believe it is gratuitous, or even obsolete. They may even be right; even I have observed a certain compulsiveness in the regularity with which I indulge. But I cannot deny the satisfaction, abstract or otherwise, that I derive from it, and, no, I will not be giving it up any time soon. I suppose one could call it a fetish; the word is aptly suggestive of the strangeness of it. It is apt also in how it presages the feelings of mingled shame and defiance with which I now confess my predilection for semicolons.

    Eh; I <3 semicolons.

    With Tim on vacation and obsessing about GTA4 does that mean no CAD for a while? =/

    Nope, I think he’s written the comics in advance so they’ll just be posted as usual while he’s away.

    Everyone who has time and an appropriate console is obsessing about GTA4.

    Haha yes. In general I try to keep it that way. But I think sometimes I can be a bit lazy about it.
