Hi, Anna-Liza here.
I’ll be posting about the Knit Out later, when I’ve figured out how to transfer the pictures from the camera to the computer. I’m not totally lame, only sort of. In my defense, it’s a new camera. (Yes! One of the Pollyannas has a camera now! It was on sale and everything!)
So for just right now I’ll post a couple of things that made me smile. It’s a gray Monday, and a number of people out in the blogosphere seem to be having a real Monday kind of Monday, so here’s some stuff.
First, this:[b]You Scored an A[/b]
You got 10/10 questions correct.
It’s pretty obvious that you don’t make basic grammatical errors.
If anything, you’re annoyed when people make simple mistakes on their blogs.
As far as people with bad grammar go, you know they’re only human.
And it’s humanity and its current condition that truly disturb you sometimes.
[b]The It’s Its There Their They’re Quiz[/b]
Okay, I have no idea why all the code is showing and it’s not looking the way it’s spozed to–the blogthings code has always worked here before, but the main thing is that I got 10 out of 10 on the “Their/there/they’re/its/it’s” grammar quiz. Those are such common mistakes that they probably shouldn’t bother me, but the fact that they are so common means people should be more damn careful.
Anyway, the Gold Star is completely unrelated to the quiz. Marin awarded the BlogStar award to Lyda and me (yes, that’s grammatically correct).
(Everyone go “OOOOooooooooo!!”)
It was awarded to Marin by Kim at Handeye Crafts, and it originated with Barb at Skittles’ Place. Barb would like to track where it goes, so if Lyda and I award it to you, you’ll need to link back to us and to Barb. But I’m having some difficulty making up my mind to whom to award it! The obvious person, if she hasn’t received it already, would be Laurie at Crazy Aunt Purl–she’s hilarious and personal growthy without ever getting preachy. But then, she’s one of the Big Deal Bloggers, and has a book coming out and everything, so I’m thinking maybe we should give it to someone not so well known, to maybe bring them more readers. So Lyda, what are your thoughts? Loyal readers, do you want to weigh in? We’ll need to pass this along pretty soon, to keep the momentum going. Is Rabbitch too bawdy? Is Franklin too Zenlike? Marin already has the damn thing, so she’s out … hmmmmmm …
