Well, I was planning to post yesterday, but my internet went out. We had Water Day at my school – basically grades K-4 played water games instead of doing school work. I wish college was like that! So my brother and I went and filled water balloons and set up a slip-n-slide. And, of course, once the festivities had begun, we just had to join in. What a bummer 😛 I got to dump water on my littlest sister, so that was extra fun. After playing in the sun for a few hours I was pretty wiped, but I was scheduled for work, so heigh ho, heigh ho, it’s off to work I go-ed… Ya. That’s bad grammar. I should just stop now before I dig my hole any deeper. I tend to be a bit of a grammar Nazi. Maybe more than a bit… It’s amazing how studying other languages deepens your understanding of your own mother tongue! After studying German grammar (they have approximately 5,000 cases :P) I find myself hypersensitive to clauses and phrases in English. It can be annoying, but it’s kinda cool too. In addition to my inner grammar Nazi, I also abhor bad spelling. It just gets me right where it hurts, you know? Sometimes being a semi-educated person can be a very annoying thing. Anyway, I should stop rambling aimlessly and let you get back to your life. But to solidify my previous points, I have the perfect poem to end this post. And I can’t explain to you how much this kills me inside.

Eye halve a spelling chequer

It came with my pea sea

It plainly Marques four my revue

Miss steaks eye kin knot sea.

Eye strike a quay and type a word

And weight four it two say

Weather eye am wrong oar write

It shows me strait a weigh.

As soon as a mist ache is maid

It nose bee fore two long

And eye can put the error rite

Its really never wrong.

Eye have run this poem threw it

I am shore your pleased two no

Its letter perfect in it’s weigh

My chequer tolled me sew.

(Sauce unknown)
