Sorry Rose–but it was a pretty tasty cake! There’s plenty left over for you to use. And KC–welcome home!

I’d downloaded that same cake and was going to post it on “our” blog “eventually.” Ah well–guess you can’t “have” your cake and “post” it, too!

One of the most common ways to wreck a cake is to use quotation marks indiscriminately. But, I’m “glad” that you find “meaning” in the practice otherwise!

We particularly “love” your image of a cake that places “read” within quotation marks. It seems particularly astute, and most definitely not “unnecessary.” It illustrates the transformation of literacy practices that occur daily in our Internet Age. The Internet is not making us stupid, it’s rewiring our brains, it’s changing the way we think, and that may be a good thing.
