It’s that time again: National Grammar Day!

Watch those apostrophes. Murder emphasis quotes and passive voice with sheer abandon. Sip a grammartini. Hug an editor. Rescue dangling modifiers. JUST GO CRAZY.

A New Year’s Eve Request

31 Dec

NYE Party HatIf you catch anyone shouting “Happy New Years!” tonight, please thump them on the head. It might squash some party hats and/or provoke drunken anger, but go ahead and do it anyway. Let me know how that goes.

We’re only celebrating one new year, not several. While there will be more new years (don’t tell the Mayans), we’re only dealing with 2015 right now. Happy New Year.

For geeky kicks, click here for a growing-by-the-minute list of “Happy New Years” tweets. Ugh.

A festive Halloween to all! 

The twins are now two years old and starting to get into Halloween. They could’ve cared less about the candy (“Right ON; more for us!” — Mr. and Mrs. Brown), but they enjoyed the costumes.

Young Séamus dressed as the mighty Thor. He even kept his winged helmet on throughout our entire trick-or-treat excursion. Way to go, Séa! 

Séamus as Thor

And here’s everyone’s favorite flower girl, Pearl Mae, who, as usual, took things a little too far. Way to creep everyone out, Pearl! 

Creepy Pearl

Be nice to me or I’ll give her your address and a hatchet. Cheers, dahling! 

It’s already Independence Day?!

July?!  How did this happen?! 

Be careful out there. It’s a nutty weekend. Stay safe. But still have lots of fun. 

Nothing says ‘Happy Independence Day’ like James Cagney doing some high-stepping. Cheers! 

Happy National Grammar Day!

Hooray! It’s National Grammar Day! Imaginary confetti toss! Par-TAAAAY! 

In the immortal words of Mignon Fogarty (a.k.a. Grammar Girl), “Language is something to celebrate, and March 4 is the perfect day to do it. It’s not only a date, it’s an imperative: March forth on March 4 to speak well, write well, and help others do the same!” 

Happy Grammar Day, dahling! Get your grammar on in a big, festive way. Cheers!
