misc.

So,

Tonight we watched the opening ceremony of the olympics.
Of course, when i say we...I mean everyone.
Victor and Elena both woke up and wanted to watch with us.
Elena's question: "do dey eat popcorn?"
Victor's preoccupation, drinking a glass of ice water without
HELP FROM ANYONE.

My favorite parts:
the printing press moved by people
the boat dance
it was all wonderful to me, and amazing.

So,

I have been ill today...
i will not divulge in a blog the source of my anger, but I am really ill, and I have a temper, and in this particular case, the temper must quell itself, which makes me feel like i could explode!!!

Grammar:
i wish everyone who writes and talks in public had to acknowledge that a couple is ONE THING. a pair, is ONE THING...
so, the couple is planning to blah blah blah...the couple was seen blah blah blahing...NOT..the couple were or the pair were.
and nauseATED vs. nauseous...
I guess other people..the majority of people have not read The Elements of Style, or maybe they were not listening in GRAMMAR class.
YUCK.

whatever...
I am ill..

Yikes!

I love when southeners say that they are "ill" when they are in pissy mood:)

You got an amen from me! I never got rid of my copy of Elements - though it seems many others did...
