Grammar Nazi

Filed Under: Book Related, Life

I'm one of those especially annoying people who correct what other people say. The compulsion isn't as bad as it used to be - now I usually just correct stuff in mah head. I blame that compulsion on my mom because she's an easy target [Hi, Mom!] and she isn't nearly as good as me at ...

Filed Under: Life

When Sophie was a puppy - maybe three months old - she was viciously attacked by a chihuahua. Yeah, I know. My pit bull was attacked by achihuahua. We don't talk about it much because it reminds Sophie she was pwned by a dog that was already half her size. I wrote a long time ago, ...
