A person rants about grammar in fanfiction and how they hate certain things, and calls themselves a 'grammar nazi'.

Just few comments in, someone complains that the term 'nazi' makes them uncomfortable.

Another someone jumps in, telling it's offensive to use term nazi in such context, because it should only be used to describe political groups connected with genocide and the like.

Different someone backs them up and offers a less offensive and 'more amusing' alternative to a word 'nazi'.

Which is fascist.

... what is this I don't even...
 Animal lovers should stop calling their furry or feathered friends “pets” because the term is insulting, leading academics claim.

I just wonder how do they know animals feel offended. Was there a demonstration of dogs in London recently? Did the tigers in the jungle sign a petition? Did English foxes care more about people using the 'sly as a fox' phrase than about said people hunting them?

Who the fuck cares how you call a dog or a parrot when all those animals suffer from terrible - physical - abuse and neglect? Wouldn't it be better to give that money they use to pay that 'specialists' to RSPCA? 

Saint Francis of Assisi is shaking his head at you, you supposedly religious academics. Apparently you didn't understand a thing from his teachings.

Two days ago...

... Greg bought bunch of daffodils, so many of them that they didn't fit the usual vase and I had to put them into two more little jars. I was so happy, looking forward to the living room all in yellow.

They still aren't opened. But few of them already wilted. Wtf???

It's official...

... I wanna hump Gazza. I'm sorry, westofwhatever , but... just... HIS HAIR!!! I don't think he's ever been more hot (subjectivelly, of course :P). 

Oh, and it just downed on me that I'M GOING TO SEE THEM LIVE!!!!!

brb, flailing and fangirling

That awkward moment...

... when your toddler runs away from you screaming, with the most horrified expression ever, right after you offered him a piece of pancake instead of a strawberry.

Once more with feeling

My Christmas present for myself - a year of paid account. A lot of icons. No ads. And other sparkly shit I will probably never use. But I may write stuff here a bit more often than before, and not just surveys. Speaking of which, I feel such an urge to do that oneCollapse )

Writer's Block: Relive in the moment

If you could relive one hour of your life so far, what would you choose and why? Would you do or say anything different? How do you think it would change your life?

I wouldn't just say good night to her when I walked her home to our dorm after few hours of fun in the club. After we kissed while playing that silly ice cube game. I wouldn't just turn around and come back to have few more drinks while she went to sleep. I wouldn't leave her there in the dark hallway, not when the tension between us was still so thick, almost palpable, while that short kiss was still fresh on my lips, while I could feel how soft she was even though we weren't touching any more. If I could relive that moment, I would kiss her again, and I would probably go upstairs with her, to her room, to explore some more of what I've just discovered.

I kissed other girls after that night but it has never felt so right to want something more. Now I regret I didn't take that chance because it was safe. It would still be just a memory for me now, but oh, so much better than the one I have now.

Writer's Block: Don't Call It a Comeback

The French term "l'esprit de l'escalier," which translates literally as "the wit of the staircase," refers to those perfect, clever comebacks that you only think of after the fact. What's the best came-too-late comeback you've ever had?

It was long time ago, while I was in college and away from home. Met this group of great people and we used to hang out every weekend, meaning Fridays and Saturdays some dancing at a local small club and Sundays a quiet drink in the afternoon. So, I spent one of the Saturday nights having fun with a guy named Tex. Cuz he was cute and a great dancer. But at the end of the evening it appeared he's also kind of an asshole. So, the next night out I had my dancing fun with a guy named Ben, who maybe wasn't so cute but he was funny and witty and also a great dancer.

At the end of the evening, Tex finally managed to corner me (he was trying all night long) and asked me with this charming charming smile: "Say, don't you want to spend some time with a real man tonight?" I was sort of speechless at this point and I just laughed and left him and his huuuge ego just standing there. And only as we were leaving the club, I thought that I could actually tell him "Oh, I'd love to! If you see any real men around here, please, send them my way!". Which would be almost the exact quote from one of my favourite TV series.

What can I say - I was still young and my wit was still developing ;)
