I love the ampersand symbol. I enjoy writing it with one fluid motion. I think "&" looks way better than "and". So imagine my dismay at Blogger's ampersand-recognition difficulties. My main blog should be ofdots&things.blogspot.com. But Blogger reads it as ofdots&[amp]things. So I changed "&" to "n". And for some reason, I find it less whimsical, less spirited, less special, less pretty. I feel sad that the beautiful "&" has been reduced to the unexciting, regular-letter "n". Sigh.
