Grammar 101

Frustrated by the incorrect usage of "your" and "you're"? Aggravated by misapplied apostrophes in "it's" and "who's"? This rant brightened my day; it's nice to know that I'm not the only OCD reader extant. On a side note, many of Ms. Bunting's posts are well-written and highly enjoyable. I strongly suggest perusing her site.

Don't get me started. As a self-described English geek, it's all I can do not to throttle the offenders.

Thank you for your kind words and well wishes to Sarah and I. I love your site as well, please keep up the good work, and I'll try to post more often, I get lazy sometimes!

Namaste.

Lol. Thanks for stopping by my site--as a former English major, I've definitely gone on grammatical tirades myself.

This warms my heart -- people are always saying it doesn't matter, but I say language is what separates us from the beasts of the field (or whatever the Biblical language is).
And, Tyler, it should be Sarah and me, since the omitted 'you' is the subject and you & Sarah are the direct objects of your sentence.
Yeah, I'm a bitch and the grammar police at the saaaaame tiiime, y'all.

Hey! I love your BLOG. I am a word freak, too. Love 'em. Use 'em every day. AND I like to make some up. Plus, I've even attempted to invent some punctuation. My new favoritest word, beside favoritest, is SARCASMIC. I bet you can get what that means.

This has been some praise for you ~ I'm Bad Penny
