Exploring the world I find myself creating and inhabiting without my girl; the good, bad, ugly, and indifferent. Join me. I can almost promise you it's not what you're expecting.

Last night my friend Lisa and I had a conversation about the pros and cons of random capitalization: why we do it, whether or not we should encourage it, possible cultural influences, etc. You know, just a regular Tuesday night conversation between word freaks. She told me that in German one capitalizes Important Things so as to mark their importance. I don't know if there are specific rules about what qualifies as Important or if each writer gets to choose for themselves. I hope it's the latter.
Assuming so, and if I wrote in German, these are some words I would capitalize. Always.
