Find me on most of the social spaces as Mrs. Flinger
In an effort to launch something in a very short timeframe, after three months of coding in off hours for stints of a few minutes at a time, I used a framework to get *something* out. This is not code I would use for a client. Ever.
In fact, if you could see my face right now, you'd realize this is a little more than painful.
But, as sometimes has to happen with personal projects, the non-paying personal site takes a backseat to quality and gets dressed in handmedown code. Thanks to VMcore for the free ride here.
Did you mean gofer or “gopher?” *ducks*
PS - can we talk about lose vs. loose? AUGHHHHHH!
HAHAHAHAHA. Wow. Do as I say not as I do.
(AM A DOUCHE)
You’ll hate me for this as I just clicked over from Pioneer Woman…but:
In your “What’s Up” short bio - it is “claim to fame” not “claim of fame”
In your cussing disclaimer - it is “most tasteful manner” not “most tasteful manor”
...because I’m a douche about correcting other people
People who live in grammatical houses shouldn’t throw split infinitive stones.
Actually split infinitives don’t bother me much. I think “to boldly go where no man has gone before” is a great sentence fragment. I just like to give you a hard time while you’re up there on your high horse.
My husband’s pet peeve is apostrophe misuse. He jokes (maybe?) that one day he will run for mayor on the apostrophe platform, and if elected, anyone who uses an apostrophe incorrectly gets a huge fine! LOL
You should definitely stay away from my latest post. The capitalization will make your head explode.
how about the difference between ‘peak’ ‘peek’ and ‘pique’... that one gets me going too. And I agree on the lose/loose thing
Sometimes I think back to life before spell check and I feel so terribly, terribly sorry for those people.
Eager and Anxious are my biggest pet peeve. But yeah, the apostrophe things make me crazy. Oh, and nauseated vs. nauseous. Can’t wait to see parts two and three.
I just had the it’s/its conversation with my son because he was mixing them up. But he’s only 7 so I guess he’s got a pretty good excuse for writing like a douche.
you forgot too and to!
Yes to all the above, and also the use of “Begging the Question.” If you say, “Which begs the question:” and then follow it with a question (eg. “Which begs the question: what is Greg talking about?”) you are using it WROOOONG WRONG WRONG! <yells>
(I know, “You are using it wrongly.” Folks, it’s OK to be pedantic about some things without having 100% stodgy grammar all the time)
You’re post and these comment’s are really to much! Thank’s for the laugh!
Thank you!! I really hope the entire internet (or Internet, what’s the verdict on that?) is reading.
What’s the matter with you. Your getting all bent because we don’t talk so good? Its not are fault. Its the school’s, their too blame. Geez.
Oh, Flinger, how I adore thee!!
Oh, and the one that frosts my biscuits is bring versus take. You can take something to anywhere but you can only bring things to here.
Also, if anyone tells me that they “borrowed” someone their pen instead of “lent”, I will scream holy hell…
Something for “Part 2.”
affect and effect
lay and lie
Up with this bullshit I will not put !!
Thank you. It’s a shame that people, grown ass people, are making these mistakes.
I HATE MISUSED APOSTROPHES. I hate those other things too, but the apostrophe thing? It just GETS to me.
When I was in high school I worked in the cafe at a Bingo hall and we used to have a sign with the daily specials and soup and things. The woman I worked with? Would always write “Soup’s” and “Special’s” and things like that. AGH! I would erase them and she woudl replace them again. It drove me NUTS.
