In the last 6 hours I’ve noticed the incorrect use of the word there three times. Granted I am not the best speller, nor do I claim to be. A big thank you to spell check and not the Catholic School System, especially for teaching me Whole Word and not Phonics. And yes, sometimes I may get a little overzealous with my comma usage. But damn it people, learn when to use your freakin’ homonyms!
Nothing sets me off into a fit rage as when someone misuses there, their and they’re. Weather, whether and wether really piss me off too!
If you get confused as to which, not witch, words to use do not fear help can be found HERE.
My mother is a grammar goddess. In her very polite Martha Stewart esk way she will inform you of the proper word you are looking for as well as the correct pronunciation. She use to even correct her teachers. I wish I would have inherited that wisdom from her!!
Anyone who knows me is well aware of the fact that I don’t have TV. I own a television but I stopped the brain drain that is cable about 8 years ago. Believe me I got my fill in college and I can honestly say No, I don’t miss it…well maybe PBS, Discovery & the History channel but that is about it. Besides you can find just about anything online or it can be rented through Blockbuster and Netflix, which I don’t have.
A fellow coworker is obsessed with two shows. One being Hoarders, the other, Intervention. After several weeks of her saying “did you see…oh right, you don’t watch TV” then proceeding to tell me that episodes events I finally got onto Hulu and searched for those two shows. Last weekend I got my fill of both and honestly, all I wanted to do was take a shower, smoke a joint and drink a few beers. I’m sorry, is that wrong?
Today is rainy and cold. It’s the perfect weather for staying cuddled up in bed, and these guys totally fit the tone of the moment.
Several weeks ago the oh so talented Julie, of the Peaceful Peacock, came up with a cleaver way to enjoy loose leaf tea without having to succumb to the use of a metal tea ball. Just check this setup out!
She uses organic cotton to make a tea pouch that neatly rolls up with a strategically placed chop stick. Is that cool or what!?! Well, Monster Bites, a blog featuring 365 days worth of enviable living, was hosting a give-a-way and up for grabs was one of Julie’s tea sets. I was all like, DUDE! I have to win this because I love tea. Well the tea gods happened to be smiling upon me that day because guess what? I won!!!!
Not only did I receive 3 reusable tea bags and 2 chop sticks, but also included was a nifty little bag made from some rockin’ vintage fabric…
…AND 2 ounces of Julie’s favorite tea, An Evening in Missoula, which I will have you know is absolutely dreamy!
So if you know someone who loves tea or maybe it’s you who enjoys this *hobby* as my step father refers to it. (My mom is a hard core tea enthusiast and gets some serious crap for it!) Just mosey yourself on over here and pick up some reusable tea bags! Both you, and mother nature, will be glad you did!!
