It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year Again …

4 Mar

It’s March 4, and you know what that means …

That’s right, smarty pants: IT’S NATIONAL GRAMMAR DAY!

Wooohooo! Par-TAY! Happy Grammar Day, mofos. March forth on March fourth to celebrate the splendor of speaking and writing well.

Grab a red pen and hunt for errors. Read a grammar haiku. Revisit Strunk & White’s “Elements of Style.” Hug an editor. Take an online grammar quiz.

Just go totally nuts today, OK?

Valentine’s Day: Don’t F**k It Up

14 Feb

For more aggravation, check out Twitter’s ever-growing feed of folks tweeting their precious hearts out about “Valentime’s Day.” While some are intentional spelling gaffes, many others, sadly, are not. Enjoy, lovers! 

Brownie Holidays

13 Dec

Happy holidays from the Brownies, a.k.a. Pearl Mae and Séamus. Clearly, they handled this year’s Santa visit much better than the nightmare of 2014.

(Previously undisclosed fun fact about the 2014 photo: Look closely at Séamus’s pants and you’ll notice a dark spot. He totally peed on Santa.)  

We wish you a lovely holiday season, and a new year filled with good health, abundance and love. Cheers!

Happy Grammar Day!

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. 

Santa’s Reign of Terror Ends

26 Dec

The Terror of Santa This year, we gave our twins the best Christmas gift ever: trauma! 

Hope a fine holiday was had by all. 

From my family to yours, all the best in 2015.
