Strunk & Is That Right?

Question, because I'm lazy curious:

MLA format: The Bible isn't underlined in text, and I've discovered that the Book of Mormon is also not underlined. Would you underline: Oxford English Dictionary? I feel like I've seen O.E.D. in places (as opposed to O.E.D.) but I could quite easily be wrong.

Also, someone made a compilation of Dylan O'brien kissing his real life girlfriend the girl in his first movie and from other things he's done, and it made my chest all tight and I feel funny. I should not be attracted to a CHILD. A very hot and attractive child. Okay, he's almost 22. STILL. (And I still can't watch The First Time because I know they're really dating and it makes me feel like a creeper or a voyeur, and I have issues, I recognize this, but there is a very strong WE DO NOT CROSS THE STREAMS vibe in me regarding celebrities and being a fan.)

I am a nerd. There you go. Also, I'm making the Mr. take me out to a good dinner and I'm getting a black and blue martini or NINE. \o/

Yep, I'm going with underlining, too. YOU ARE WISE AND WONDERFUL.

I CAN'T WITH HIM TOO. This is becoming a huge problem in my life. Lol.

Well, I was a professional proofreader and copy editor, regardless of all of the weird things my fingers type out when I'm not paying attention...

(And I italicize. I LOATHE underlining in almost all cases. But I respect your choices! :) )

This I know, and this I respect (and use. Oh, do I use you... I MEAN LOVE YOU.).

The ONLY reason I'm underlining in that particular doc that I'm working on (that only you are privvy to) is because the agents I'm looking at sending it to have stated they want that instead of italics. WHICH IS WEIRD BECAUSE I PREFER ITALICS, TOO.

No, no, manuscripts are still expected to be submitted in Courier 12 with underlining. Absolutely, that's standard; that how one formats things for submission and editing. I just hate it. :D


Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
