The Wily Semicolon
What happens when punctuation meets cancer? Join me on my grand adventure to find out! (Yes, the Big C finally inspired me to GMOFB.)

Does the O in GMOFB stand for "own"? Because I've never seen that acronym before, but I have a guess as to what it means. Also, cool blog.

also, good luck

I love that I can hear you spooling each of these entries out in one long breath, arms waving, stories telling, eyes rolling! you sound just like you and it's wonderful and terrible too.

Oh, crap. Good luck. Please take care of yourself. Keep fighting, and keep us updated as you can.

That sucks big time. That said, if a good attitude and a great sense of humour count for anything you'll breeze through this tough time. My thoughts are with you.

If anyone has the attitude to kick butt here, it's you scody. If you ever need to spew, feel free to write. Will be thinking of you frequently.

Semicolon cancer. At least you don't have late stage apostrophes.

Scody! I love your blog about cancer. I mean, I hate that it needs to be about cancer, but good on you for saying such fascinating and unflinching things about your experiences. If I could, I would sic Werner Herzog on this uppity tumor: he'd obliterate all its rotten little hopes and dreams in no time.
