Dramatis persona*

helenhead Helen Chick

I've always wanted a bumper sticker that said "I'm a female, LDS/Mormon, Scout leading, geocaching, piano-playing, bicycling, mathematics educator with a PhD in maths ... and I VOTE"!

I think this makes me a minority group of cardinality 1!

* Since there's only one of me and "personae" is plural (I think), I've gone with dramatis persona.

My issue with Twitter

My issue with Twitter: my propensity for polysyllabic verbosity (and parenthetical comments) means what I want to say won’t fit in 140 chara

    You just have to learn to impose some creative constraints (http://xkcd.com/1045/)! Moderate your sesquipedalian prolixity and your parens!

    How does one moderate your parens? We need to know.

      By only having two of them, in matched sets.

      Which is kind of useful to apply to parents. I’ve moderated my parents by having only two as well. More than that would have been very confusing, and, given my poor memory, rather risky for embarrassing myself (“Who are you? Oh, yes, you’re THAT mother, aren’t you! Yes, you’re the ‘Grey-haired Matriarch’ (as opposed to the ‘Ditzy-blonde Matriarch’ and those others of various shades!)”)

      I’m raving. I’ll stop now.
