I Am a Grammar and Spelling Freak

    What's so weird about me is

    that I'm way too formal in writing; even over text. Sure, I'll use the occasional "lol", but that's pretty much the only acronym that I use, because saying "Hahaha" doesn't look right to me. It makes it seem like I'm being sarcastic. That's actually what I use it for, though...

    Sure, I may misspell some words,

    or incorrectly capitalize others. But what really grinds my gears is when one can't spell a simple word such as "what" or "cool", and when one uses words in past tense instead of present tense or vice versa. Besides that, I love teaching people spelling words they haven't heard...

    I appreciate people who can spell n dnt talk

    I have been obsessed with spelling

    and grammar since age eleven. I'm not perfect at it, but I'm better that most other thirteen year olds! The only downside is the fact that I get super pissed when I see grammar mistakes on anything. ANYTHING!! Even if it's just writing on a bathroom wall.

    The following sentence: 'A rough-coated,

    dough-faced, thoughtful ploughman strode through the streets of Scarborough; after falling into a slough, he coughed and hiccoughed.' Contains the nine different pronunciations of "ough" in the English Language.

    I'm Not Purrfect Though

    I don't expect anyone to follow my lead, let's just be really clear about that. But when it comes to my writings I can't stand to have things looking sloppy because I write so much and have written some books and been through the wringer with editors and stuff so I have it...

    "A kiss can be a comma,

    a question mark or an exclamation point. That is a basic spelling that every woman ought to know." -Mistinguette

    People please take a moment to read this.

    Okay, so I can stand the usual "how r u doin" type stuff, but there's a line between fast-texting/messaging and horrid grammar/spelling. I don't know how many times I've gotten a message (on here, via text message, twitter, etc.), and it looks like a 4 year old tried to text...
