Kindly

Triggered by a business email I just sent and by various musings on my f-list:

I really hate people signing off emails or messages "With kind regards". It's not up to me to describe myself as being kind, it's up to the recipient of my supposed kindness to decide if I am getting it right.

I much prefer "With best regards" to someone I don't know, or "Best" to people I do know. I am better placed than anyone to judge if I am sending them my best. Sure, "best" has something of the value of "most favoured nation" about it, but that's still not bad.

Yesterday I expressed strong views against naming children after characters from Greek mythology, and was told "I have more power than you since I'll be the one filling in the certificate while you're recovering from the birth... remember Major Major Major Major!"

Poor Doc Daneeka. If I recall correctly, she moved to Lansing, Michigan and gave no forwarding address.
