I'm still sans computer, but that should be remedied this week, just in time for my Bloggy Date with the girls. (A Bloggy Date is a wonderful afternoon spent at either a coffee shop or very accommodating restaurant with laptops and girlfriends in tow--and, most likely, mimosas--working on our respective blogs/blog posts. A whole lot of yammering, a little bit of writing, and endlessly awesome.)
I know there are various incarnations of a sarcasm font floating around the internets, but I frankly don't like any of them. As I love me some HTML tags (nerd alert!), I've decided that my personal sarcasm font is going to be more of a sarcasm tag. It looks a little something like this:
My ex just proposed to a twenty-two-year-old. Awesome. (/sarc)
Please note that I've opted to not use a leading tag as that is just too much work. I realize this may create some confusion as to what part of the phrase/sentence/aside I mean sarcastically, but, well, I can't do all the work. I mean, if you don't understand my sense of humor, I doubt a leading tag is going to make the difference.
Also, I'm using parentheses versus...um...these things "<>" so that the machine understands that I'm not actually trying to use a real tag. (I tell you, the attitude I get from the machines...)
So there you have it. You've been warned and shall begin seeing this tag pop up in my Tweets, Facebook updates, and blogs effective immediately. Feel free to have at it, as well.
