Compliance with my Acupuncturist, Part IV [Jun. 23rd, 2009|01:03 am]

Nothing really new to report. At work, I arrived with three clients, but one person cancelled so then I was down to two. One of them was an employee of the company and a cheap tipper!!! They should've known better, but it was balanced by my other client who used the promotion and upgraded to an 80-minute massage for free (which means $15 extra for me), tipped me a very gracious $25 and booked with me for next month in order to get 15% off. Whoo hoo! Go me. Saturday I only had one client, but they were cool and tipped me appropriately. For those not in the know, standard tipping of massage therapists in NYC is $20; approximately 20%.

You know, I am not sure if I used that semi-colon appropriately because I don't know when exactly to use them. Will skywalker_child please inform me, please?

After work on Saturday, I went over to my sister's and got my brother-in-law an apple crumb pie for Father's Day. It was very nice being there, especially since my favo(u)rite nephew was there. My other nephew was all up in my butt, but he finally went to sleep Saturday night around 3:30. I quickly crashed on the couch afterwards.

I eventually returned home quickly before going off to tutor Sunday night and I actually just got back home from tuturing not too long ago. Hooray for tutees and for me being a night person and not minding tutoring from 5:30PM to midnight.

Punctuation shout out in an lj entry? W00T!

The semi-colon is used to separate two complete thoughts that are so connected you don't want to give them separation anxiety with a period. Example: "Johnny ran into the sliding glass door; we spent three hours picking up the pieces."

Hope that helps, and sorry for the rather disturbing example...it was what first came to mind, which says something about me.

Thank you!

I suppose I am grammatically correct then. :)

Also, it's okay. With the economy the way it is today, they don't make glass doors and sample sentences the way they used to.
