Solving Rubik’s Cube problems / No airhorn to wake a baby! / BEFORE, not B4!

September 7, 2017

I got a baby intro photo card from Steph and Lisa in the mail for baby Henry – very nice! I’m not going to comment on the spelling of “shenanigans,” though! Steph said that Shaun did comment on it, haha! From Julie S. and Funnyjunk: I deal with my problems by painting over the squares […]

A dream about Jimmy choosing Tommy over me?! / The Eclipse Test

August 22, 2017

I had a dream where Jimmy was driving me and Tommy in a van somewhere, and Jimmy kept saying that he would choose Tommy over me, even as he dropped him off at a house somewhere before going into Richmond (where we both lived for whatever reason) and hanging out with me at a crowded […]

Cup of tea and double vodka! / Veronica Hudon! / A grammatically-correct LOLcat!

July 13, 2017

Today is National French Fry Day! From Lynne Jamison: I may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but I’m someone’s double vodka. My ex-friend Veronica Hudon, whom I met through the Blood Games in 2008! At last! A grammatically-correct LOLcat! I am in your forum… posting in a grammatically accurate manner.

Crazy hatchet mugshot, a sign of NG things to come, a comma with grammar books

June 20, 2017

I discovered today that David Emery unfriended me on Facebook, which is fine. Man accused of chasing family member with hatchet: Take a look at the guy’s mugshot here! HAHAHA! From Steph: A sign of things to come! A sign of NG things to come! MUHAHAHAHA! From Julie: A comma with grammar books such as […]

Laundry tokens, moist people and typos, Jesus no way Yahweh, med reminders

May 31, 2017

I called Hester at 10:20 AM to see whether I could get laundry tokens (September 23, 2016) at that early hour, and I could. At least this time, she didn’t bitch about how “not polite” I was on the phone (I’m not a morning person or very “fake polite” after getting up!), how I was […]

Speakers! / Judging people on spelling, doing a great job, raping me and robbery

May 28, 2017

Eric M. called at 10:50 to say he’d be here ten minutes later to help me with my inadvertently unplugged speakers. He found some black wire with a green plug somewhere in back of my computer tower, which had been the problem. Then he plugged some things into the back of the computer tower, fixed […]

Hot Pocket full of shells, editors hearing punctuation, coming out in pajamas

May 17, 2017

I discovered redrum this morning – UGH! From Discord: Hot Pocket full of shells! This one genuinely made me laugh! From GIRLS WITH SLINGSHOTS: “I’m an editor. I can HEAR punctuation!” From George Takei: When someone asks you to come out, but you’re already in pajamas… “It’s a NO from me.” Simon Cowell has it […]

Crazy cat lady! / No eschewing the Oxford comma! / Mary had a little lamb!

May 14, 2017

Since I was up at 7 AM, it was COFFEE TIME! From Janina: Crazy cat lady action figure! Whenever a publisher’s style guidelines eschew use of the Oxford comma, I can only assume that this results from a managerial decision to save money by cutting back on ink, because no reasonable editor would make this […]

Tim Tebow and the Oxford comma, an explosive dog, Lathan and Le-Zhan Williams?!

May 10, 2017

Why I still use the Oxford comma: Tim Tebow’s parents are not God and Mary! From Engrish.com and Library of Most Controversial Files: Explosive dog! From UNSOLVED MYSTERIES: Lathan and Le-Zhan Williams?!

Correcting people’s grammar, Jeff, Dungeon Man, Balloon Monkey, an iron eraser

April 4, 2017

April 4 is apparently Tell A Lie Day. Well, then. From Candy: If you can’t win an argument, correct their grammar instead. In MOTHER 2 DELUXE, Jeff and the Balloon Monkey meet Brick Road, who wants to become Dungeon Man. There’s a Gruff Goat and an iron pencil nearby. You need a Pencil Eraser to […]
