Ovid Claus

Why do they even bother to have me sign bank card receipts? I've been signing mine "Santa Claus" for a couple of weeks and no one has noticed. Of course, before that I was signing them "Che Guevara" and no one noticed that, either.

In other news, I just looked at the first edited draft of my perl.com article that should be out in January. While I understand why the editor made the changes, it's still a bit jarring. Some of my style is there, but much of it has gone away with his choice of the second person instead of the first or third ("you" instead of "I" or "we"). I've always thought that writers should merely suck it up and be happy they're being published, but I see how taking my style and warping it into something I would never write is a bit painful to watch.
