I had no idea what WORDLE was that everyone was sharing. I'm not much of a phone game person, but words are my jam, so I tried it out. Not bad since I had no idea what I was doing. I promise not to share a grid of squares every day ;)
It's been a while since I shared, but 'tis the season for stray apostrophes!
When you add an apostrophe to your last name, it makes it possessive, not plural. Holiday cards are the biggest offenders:
Happy Holidays from the Perottis-- YES
Happy Holidays from the Perotti's -- NO!
We're going out with the Andersons-- YES!
We're going out with the Anderson's-- NO!
Got it? I am available for holiday card consultation ;)
I'm writing copy for something and thought I was pretty close to done so I checked a previous version and it was exactly the same word count. EXACTLY! My designer is going to love me.
(I know this is only relevant- let alone exciting- if you're a writer or designer, but it was a funny coincidence and a good way to end the week. TGIF!)
Oh look, one of my favorite arguments!
I repost this every so often and it always sparks the biggest backlash. Your preference is your preference, but you're wrong
All major style guides use one space. Books, newspapers (print and online), all major internet browsers and platforms...everyone uses one space. I'm 42 and I learned to single space in college 20+ years ago, so this isn't a new thing. Everyone should be caught up by now. Give it up, double spacers
(Fun fact: Facebook takes away the double space when you post a comment.)
I'd be careful with that opinion definition, but otherwise I love it.
And they go in this order; opinion never trumps fact.
My very favorite argument!!
(I know, I know, "You can pry it from my cold, outdated-practiced hands." Don't worry, I will!)
As part of Spirit Week, my son's school is doing Shape Day today in honor of Pi Day...which was yesterday.
So on 3.15 we celebrate 3.14 by wearing clothing with shapes. Got it.
Of all the stupid made-up spirit themes, this has to be the most off base.
9th grader defining Shakespearean words:
Whence- a quarterback we traded
Woo- often followed by 'hoo'; shouting support for someone
Such a waste of time but I'm dying
So dumb hahaha
