I need a punctuation/grammar icon...

I find that I am a dinosaur. I did not know the Chicago Manual of Style now approved one space between sentences. Can I train my fingers?

Woe is I. That's probably why I can't get published. Too out of touch, far too proper. As Winston Churchill said (quoted on today's calendar page), "Ending a sentence with a preposition is something up with which I will not put." *snort*

At least I know I'm smarter than a 5th Grader. I answered all the questions on last night's show with no problem (I can't speak as well for the contestants).

And because looking up Winston Churchill quotes is fun:

"Writing a book is an adventure. To begin with, it is a toy and an amusement; then it becomes a mistress, and then it becomes a master, and then a tyrant. The last phase is that just as you are about to be reconciled to your servitude, you kill the monster, and fling him out to the public."
