This is me being stupid....

Beer before liquor......

damn.

I'll be a lot of fun tomorrow.

Don't you hate it when people use "alot?" It drives me up the wall. Seriously - it's TWO WORDS.

Also "I could care less." You COULD care less????? So my behavior is not sooooo annoying then??? Are you sure that you could NOT care less? That might have more impact.

The best is irregardless. I have a VERY hard time with people who use this term. STOP IT RIGHT NOW. My friends use it on purpose just to annoy me to the point of rage.

These are the most boring observations/annoyances ever.

This from the wordsmithing queen..... right. I'm all over that these days.

OK- I'm going to try to sleep now. I hope I am not back at 3 am.

Goodnight.

When I lived in North Carolina everyone said "cent." As in, "I have 45 cent in my pocket." OH MY FUCKING JEHOVAH! I wanted to die whenever someone did that (which was at least 28 times a day). When I tried teaching my high school students that it was dialect and not correct they thought I was joking, laughed, and went right on saying it. FUCK! Now my mom does it just to irk me.

for some reason a lot of people here (even ones who have advanced university degrees) say "i seen". jesus christ! did we not learn how to say "i saw" in grade 1? another one is "yous guys", why would you say that when "you guys" is shorter and easier to say?

and as for beer before liquor my friend's english boyfriend has a silly saying:

"Beer before wine is fine
wine after beer, oh dear!"

Hell, I'm the one that's still up. Speaking of hell, the one that drives me up a wall is "colder than hell". Duh!
And one that's even worse? "Colder then hell".

not being an ass but Irregardless is a word.

http://m-w.com/cgi-bin/dictionary?book=Dictionary&va=irregardless&x=25&y=17

Main Entry: ir·re·gard·less
Pronunciation: "ir-i-'gärd-l&s
Function: adverb
Etymology: probably blend of irrespective and regardless
nonstandard : REGARDLESS
usage Irregardless originated in dialectal American speech in the early 20th century. Its fairly widespread use in speech called it to the attention of usage commentators as early as 1927. The most frequently repeated remark about it is that "there is no such word." There is such a word, however. It is still used primarily in speech, although it can be found from time to time in edited prose. Its reputation has not risen over the years, and it is still a long way from general acceptance. Use regardless instead.

Ugh, I have a friend who uses irregardless. She uses it a lot. I corrected her once, but she chose not to change. I cringe and move on. What really bothers me is "Supposibly". It makes my teeth hurt. ALOT! :)
