    Proudly Not

    We all make mistakes, and I don't find it encouraging to shoot people down simply because they cannot write well. Also, language is fluid. It changes. There are no rules. Anyone that says otherwise is prudish.

    I am a total grammar Nazi

    but I'm slowly realizing its not the most attractive quality. Trying to curb it. Very hard when you were raised by two people who do nothing but read.

    Bad Grammar: Laxative For The Pompous

    I once dated a girl that would have a big ol' bum brownie in her pants every time I used the wrong your/you're in a text message. Figuratively speaking of course. She would act as if the statement couldn't be comprehended if I said 'Your a wingnut' as opposed to 'You're a...

    English is not my mother tongue.  I just do my best and it takes an effort still.  I try to avoid them but I make mistakes and my spelling may be very poor in personal messages. Words are important and it remains important to take care of them and to cultivate the...
