Ace Here

Yeah, it says "John From Wuzzadem." It's not.

Michael suggested I change the password because so many people now had it. Earlier, another guest blogger told me it was dumb to send the login and password in the same email, because they're not secure.

So, I changed it. And now I'm locked out.

Until I can figure out how to fix it, or, better yet, figure out how to get someone else how to figure out how to fix it, I'm posting as "John From Wuzzadem."

Nothing written on this blog until further notice should be attributed to him. I mean that in a protective way, in case I say something stupid.

But what are the odds of that?

No better than one in three, tops.

To Confuse Matters Further, I will use the John From Wuzzadem login to actually link the John From Wuzzadem blog, even though it is not, in fact, John From Wuzzadem that I, ace and not John from Wuzzadem, am actually linking.

Mrs R. goes in search of Spurwing Plover.

Language Confusion: I just attempted to write something like "...that I, who am not John From Wuzzadem, is actually linking."

Am I just tired or is there no way to actually correctly write such a sentence in English? The verbs don't want to seem to work, whatever way I try them.

"...that I, who is not John from Wuzzadem..."

I guess that's the right way, huh? Sounds stupid though.

I'm always amused by sentences and constructions that actually cannot be written, either because there's no proper way to write them, or, as is usually the case, the proper way sounds absolutely illiterate and stupid.

There should be a way to write such things. But there's not. The sentence just needs to be rewrriten to avoid the whole problem. Which just feels like a quitter move to me.
