That Is All.

I am so tired of dogs today. Also, I'm noticing a spike in usage of the phrase "That is all" for comic effect/emphasis at the end of an otherwise banal announcement.

John Hodgman (of "...and I'm a PC" fame) pretty much ends every single post with "That is all." and has been doing so for several years now. I believe he is at least partially to blame for this trend. And I forgive him, because he is funny.

You are so probably right.

(sent:) Are people going to think I'm an asshole because I don't read John Hodgman's blog (rec'd:) No of course not. They probably don't either (sent:) I guess I was just totally paranoid? Almost posted a giant apology!
