The AP (Associated Press) just added 42 new guidelines for social media, including changing the spelling of e-mail to email. http://mashable.com/2010/06/02/ap-social-media-guidelines/
Ahhh, crap. I always spelled it e-mail. I don't want to give up the hyphen. It's comforting, for some reason.

In a fantasy soccer tournament, I am the 42nd seed.



Being considered the 42nd best isn't usually associated with a high probability of success, but maybe the 42 will bring luck.  If not, I will have my towel with me.  At least I will have options like hiding behind it, weeping into it, or throwing it into the ring.

Guess what!  Prime Minister David Cameron, a huge Douglas Adams fan, has decided to change the address of his office from 10 Downing Street to 42 Downing Street.

I saw an ad on Comcast today and it read, "See all 42 state parks in Colorado"  I just thought it was cool.  I also watched a Phineas and Ferb episode today.  It was episode 4 and in that episode they make a racecar, and the number of the car is 42.  That's two things today.  Weird. :o

I was editing my latest work in progess. I upload it on my Kindle and make notes as I read. I told my husband to let me know when he was ready to watch a movie. He came in just as I finished note number... you guessed it- 42.

I'm reading Interworld by Neil Gaiman and Michael Reaves.
I ran across this line:

The worst that might happen would be an old lady clobbering us with her purse if one of us was foolish enough to help her across 42nd Avenue.
