Challenge: Camp NaNo: Day 21: And a Surprisingly Knowledgeable Merchant of Cabbage


April 21

Today I remembered Written? Kitten!  Unfortunately, Written? Kitten! does not do the same auto-formats as the rest of my document (– becoming an en-dash and curly quotes instead of typewriter quotes).  I’m using Word 2008.  Does anyone know a quick fix for this so I don’t have to go through and delete all of the unformatted punctuations and retype them to fix them?

And then we discovered how to make Written? Kitten! give us randomized pictures of anything we wanted (theoretically).  Unfortunately it uses Flickr, so fandom photos are thin on the ground.

Today’s quandary is how quickly someone would die of hamstringing, if someone would die of hamstringing, and if they survived, if with therapy and surgery, they could walk again.

A passing tradesman became a Cabbage Man because.
