I’m on Martha! Sort of.

Have I told you I’m in a new book? I have not. Ladies and Gentlemen, meet Twitter Wit:

It’s a collection of clever Tweets from famous people and commoners like myself. It was edited by Nick Douglas, who just appeared on Martha Stewart to promote it. I am fairly sure he’s wearing eye shadow. You be the judge:

    Cool, go you!

    And my inner grammarian is just so relieved that the title says brilliance in 140 characters “or fewer,” instead of “or less.” It’s a thing of mine. ‘Cause, like, the barbarians are at the gate and all.

  • Monica Says:

    I went to college with him! He graduated in my class. So crazy to see him on TV! Can’t wait to read the book.

  • Rachel H Says:

    Those are the best Amazon reviews I have ever read. This book has to be awesome.

  • elsie Says:

    you WERE TOTALLY on Martha and he was TOTALLY wearing eyeshadow!!

  • Megan Says:

    am I allowed to be a little disappointed that the Amazon reviews weren’t limited to 140 characters or less?

  • Jet @ scatterbeams Says:

    but it only says “fewer” on THIS site – the Amazon image shows “less”… ack!

    i’m not sure if i can read it now. oh, okay, i totally will, just to find Maggie’s tweets.

  • Nick Douglas Says:

    OMG Monica who? Hi!

    Becky, I’m sorry to say it’s actually “or less.” (That’s an older cover mock-up.) Much as I sympathize, I’m a recent convert to non-prescriptive grammar, and HarperCollins and I decided “less” sounded better for a subtitle.

  • Maggeh Says:

    HarperCollins hates grammar.

  • meghan Says:

    Prescriptive and non-prescriptive grammar are two different forms of grammar love. The latter is clearly superior. And being a non-prescriptive grammarian makes Nick that much cooler.

    Linguistics major. Can you tell?

  • Alyssa Says:

    I really like Nick Douglas, so I can say this, but how does one interpret the fact that he didn’t invalidate the comments about possible eyeshadow?
