You know what's kind of weird? Even though it's already October 22nd here in Australia (4:27pm AEDT to be precise) "International" Caps Lock Day has ONLY JUST STARTED. Perhaps it's really AMERICAN CAPS LOCK DAY.

STILL DON'T KNOW WHAT A CROCKETY BLOAT IS

WELL THERE ARE A FEW OPTIONS I SUPPOSE. ACCORDING TO THE DICTIONARY A CROCKET IS

"AN ORNAMENT USUALLY IN THE FORM OF CURVED AND BENT FOLIAGE USED ON THE EDGE OF A GABLE OR SPIRE"

WHICH FRANKLY SEEMS INAPPLICABLE EXCEPT IN THE MOST TENUOUSLY METAPHORICAL OF SENSES, SO PROBABLY NOT THAT

THEN THERE IS OF COURSE DAVY CROCKET, SO PERHAPS IS IT BEING BLOATED IN A MANNER SIMILAR TO OR REMINISCENT OF DAVY CROCKET WHO DUE TO HIS PIONEER LIFESTYLE WAS OFTEN CONFRONTED WITH THE SITUATION WHERE HE WOULD EITHER HAVE TO GO HUNGRY, OR EAT SOMETHING WHICH HE KNEW WOULD QUITE POSSIBLY NOT AGREE WITH HIM RESULTING IN BLOATING BUT AGAIN THAT SEEMS A LITTLE SUSPECT AS AN ORIGIN STORY AND I THINK CAN SAFELY BE DISMISSED

I THINK MOST LIKELY IS THAT CROCKET, CROCHET, AND CROQUET ALL ULTIMATELY DERIVE FROM THE FRENCH WORD FOR "HOOK", AND "A CROTCHET" WAS USED IN THE PAST TIMES DIALECTICALLY TO MEAN AN ODD WHIM OR NOTION, MEANING A SLIGHTLY BENT OR UNUSUAL NOTION DIFFERING FROM THE NORM, AND SO SOMEONE WITH A COLLECTION OF SAID NOTIONS OR AN HABITUAL TENDENCY TO HOLD OR EXPRESS NOTIONS OF THAT SORT COULD BE SAID TO BE "CROTCHETY". OVER TIME THAT DRIFTED A LITTLE TO MEAN SOMETHING MORE LIKE CURMUDGEONLY, CANTANKEROUS OR IRASCIBLE.

WHICH OF COURSE CAN BE A MOOD THAT CAN QUITE REASONBLY STRIKE YOU UPON BLOATING ALL UP

DOES CAPSLOCK DAY REMIND ANYONE ELSE OF THE SHOW QUANTUM LEAP?

EVERYTHING REMINDS ME OF QUANTUM LEAP. MY MOTTO IS "ALWAYS THINK ABOUT QUANTUM LEAP," AND IT'S BEEN A GOOD MOTTO AND HAS GOTTEN ME THROUGH MANY TOUGH PATCHES QUANTUM QUANTUM LEAP LEAP QUANTUM LEAP OOOOOOOOOH.

ALSO NO ONE PAID MUCH ATTENTION TO MY COMMENT ABOUT BRIAN WILSON TEXAS LAW HAWK (EAGLE SCREE) ON ANOTHER THREAD BUT MY GOD YOU HAVE TO WATCH IT IT IS THE PINNACLE OF LAWYER ADS, THERE ARE FAKE BREATHALYZERS AND MOTORCYCLES AND EXPLOSIONS AND AN EVIL COP AND IT'S RELEVANT BECAUSE BRIAN WILSON TEXAS LAW HAWK (EAGLE SCREE) IS A MAN WHO SPEAKS ONLY AND ALWAYS IN ALL CAPSLOCK.

MY DAD USES CAPS LOCK WHEN HE TYPES IN EMAIL SUBJECT LINES.

CONSEQUENTLY I GET TO HEAR HIM YELLING AT ME IN MY HEAD EVEN WHEN HE'S WISHING ME HAPPY BIRTHDAY.

THANKS DAD FOR MAKING ME RELIVE CHILDHOOD TRAUMA EVERY TIME I GET AN EMAIL FROM YOU.

Dr Dracator: BELIEVE IT OR NOT THERE'S A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO DO THIS.

I LEARNED TO TYPE IN A TRANSITIONAL TIME WHEN WE USED COMPUTERS BUT OUR CURRICULUM WAS BASED ON TYPEWRITERS. SO BY HABIT I USE CAPS LOCK WHENEVER THERE ARE TWO OR MORE CAPITALS IN A ROW BECAUSE OTHERWISE HOW DO YOU MAINTAIN PROPER FORM WHILE HOLDING THE ENTIRE WEIGHT OF THE TYPE MECHANISM WITH YOUR PINKY?

I'M ALSO LEARNING IT'S HARD TO BREAK THE HABIT OF USING SHIFT AT THE BEGINNING OF SENTENCES. CLEARLY I NEED MORE PRACTICE CELEBRATING CAPS LOCK DAY.

HOW MANY OF YOU LITTLE CHICKA DEEES HAVE EVER WORKED AT A COMPUTER INTERFACE THAT HAD ONLY CAPITAL LETTERS ALL THE TIME? DO YOU KNOW WHAT A FORTRAN COMPILER IS? HAVE YOU EVER LOOKED AT A HEX DUMP?

JUST KEEP IN MIND
THAT "BE", "SEE", "ARE", "YOU"
ARE WORDS, NOT LETTERS
GET IT TOGETHER
USE YOUR SPELLCHECKER
YOU SHOULD NEVER
WRITE WORDS USING NUMBERS
UNLESS YOU'RE SEVEN
OR YOUR NAME IS *PRINCE*
I HATE THESE WORD CRIMES...
