GIP


For all us grammar whores, I couldn't resist this "Get Fuzzy" strip, so I made it into an icon. Seriously, isn't that the reaction of anyone to whom you recommend using capital letters, proper punctuation and a less one-letter replacements for words than Prince ever did? Granted, the internet isn't always serious business, but come on...

Oh, and I found a handy little site for folks who aren't as adept as others at the graphic making:

Not only does it help you crop and size any picture, but you can add text and a border, and it uploads it for you, too. Very keen!

LOL! That's fantastic.

And I know what you mean about grammar and spelling. I don't think of myself as a grammar and spelling Nazi (except where it counts - ask anyone who's attended a TT Programme Book editing meeting in the last five years), but when I see a blatantly misspelled word I cringe.

There are a couple of people at TrekBBS who are consistently bad with spelling and grammar, though, and they don't bother me - one has a medical condition that makes typing painful, so I forgive her her lack of capitalization. The other is a farmer, so I suspect his education isn't all that extensive (though his ellipses, made up of a random number of commas tend to get on my nerves a little). It's the ones who I think should know better that bother me the most.

The one error, however, that always gets on my tits is when someone misspells "grammar" as "grammer". I always want to post a picture of Captain Morgan Bateson in response (hey, it is a Trek board :P ).

Damn, I post a comment complaining about bad grammar, and I open this post and notice that I missed a comma above. Bad Lance. No cookie.

No, I don't believe I have seen it. I'd like to, though, if you can point me in the right direction.

No, an elliptical is what I should get my fat ass onto to lose this spare tire. :P (Why it's there, I don't know. I'm six feet tall and 160 pounds. I should not have a gut.)
