So predictable

Last week, I began composing a text message to my best friend to wish her a happy Thanksgiving.  The predictive text feature on my phone has always been pretty useless.  For instance:  if I type the word “boo,” it suggests I might be trying to type “hop,” and if I type “finish,” my phone thinks I meant to type “Fijan.”  But I have to say, my Thanksgiving text really takes the cake.

When I say “thanks,” my phone says “grammar.”  I totally see the resemblance.

Before you leave my blog and resume your Facebooking or Pinteresting or watching videos of really weird Japanese banana commercials or whatever it is you do on the Internet, please check out my new blog, Lady Potpourri.  It’s brand new and can only be described as a collection of random, smartass thoughts that I jot down when I’m brave enough to let my mind wander.

I have a better recommendation

On a recent trip with my husband to the Boise Army Navy Store, I found this sign:

The illustration is funny, but being the grammar nerd that I am, I spent my laughter on the incorrect spelling of “recommend.”  Hasn’t anyone recommended that this error be corrected?

Criticisms aside, I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

…unless you’re not in the United States; in that case, I suppose I just hope you have a good day?  Yeah, let’s go with that.

Why the Y?

Fear not, fellow grammar snobs:  I have not been sucked into a black hole.  The bittersweet explanation of my absence these past few weeks is simply that I have not seen any grammar errors floating about.  This is good news for the fate of the English language, but bad news for a woman whose blog depends on poor language skills.

Last night as I was perusing the TV listings, I found this:

Annnnnnd we’re back!

You might be wondering, What does the Grammaniac even do when she doesn’t have any grammar to criticize?  First, I finally self-published my Christmas children’s book.  Believe it or not, I actually have a soft spot for children and fun, imaginative stories.  I know:  mind blown, right?

I also make videos of my idiot cat.

I have forever solidified my level of geekery.
