Easy, Steve. Let me sleep, work in the yard, clean my cars, do laundry, and
take care of all the other things non-retired people must do when time
permits. Believe it or not, I don't hang around waiting for your witty
It don't get any better AFTER retirement. I do all those things, too. Many
days I wished I'd go back to work so I wouldn't have to work as hard as I do
But I usually just go take a nap until the thought passes.
In the sober light of midday I realize I made more than a few grammatical
mistakes. I guess I shouldn't sit down at the computer with glass of wine
after a long walk with the dogs. "You're" in place of "your" is the most
embarrasing; I really do know the difference. When I see a mistake as bad
as "Many people here can't write _that_ well" I assume (that pesky little
verb, again) that Professor Steve B. must have his grammar mostly correct
and didn't see the redundancy of "people."
Why did you not correct him in when you corrected me? After all, he's the
one who wrote such a heart felt essay on the subject of the English
As to "metericious," I meant "meretricious;" I left out an "re" near the
beginning. One day I may actually use a spell checker, but for now I choose
to live on the wild side as a means to improve my spelling.
I disagree with the "comma" comment, but maybe that's because I don't know
between which two words you refer because my news reader shows your
correction in the middle of "public." Even between "record" and "as" I
don't think a comma is appropriate because "as" is a seperator word, thus
precluding the need for a comma.
The period outside the closing parentheses? I don't know, it must have just
been a typographical error. Steve B. is allowed at least one per post,
please extend the same favor to me.
To both Beryl and Steve B., please correct any spelling, punctuation and
grammar errors. I'm willing to learn from anyone, even those as arrogant as
Arrogant teachers DO get your attention, don't they? I have learned the
most from those types.
As for you, young man, there's nothing wrong with your writing or your
writing style. I do have a problem with those who write in chatroomese, who
use run on sentences, and can't even operate a spell checker for the basic
words. We all do have typos and momentary lapses, and just plain mistakes.
It's the twelve year olds who spew curse words and can't put their thoughts
down that I have trouble with.
But, because of that, they're the easiest to deal with.
Spell check is like a dictionary. They don't do a lot of good unless you
know how to use them, and have a good idea of how to spell the word in the
first place. But they do catch a lot of typos. It's funny at times what
gets through spell check. Like those programs that were available a few
years ago that were supposed to type what you spoke, they were hilarious at
Huh? I fail to follow your homoerotic comments. Would you care to explain?
And what's this thing with ESP and your belief that you can tell what other
people are thinking? If you believe that, you are a nut case, or are needed
in the NSA.
Don't quit your therapist.
It is a reference to a line from a "Pink Floyd" song. I can't blame you for
not catching that. However, I notice many mentions of "homoerotic" and
"rest stops" in your posts. I made one comment (actually two after
correcting myself by inserting a missing word) about your love of sheep.
I'm not particulary proud of that comment, but in light of your post that
I'm responding to now, I think it rings true.
I'm paraphrasing here, but you stated "it's easier to deal with 12 year olds
that cuss a lot." If given the task of finding all your cusses and/or
insulting remarks for no reason from those you were responding to over the
last few days, I will do my best.
I wouldn't take the drop in pay the NSA could afford.
"How can you have any pudding if you don't eat yer meat?"
You're talking to an old Pink Floyd fan. Early stuff. Like Meddle.
Please, for my own peace of mind, where is the "easy meat" line
in Pink Floyd?
I'll trade you for the information. I'll tell you album, song and year it
was released if you answer the question of why you continued your attack on
azwily1 in the "guns on campus" thread after it was pointed out to you that
your assumption (and the resulting, inappropriate behavior, which you
rightfully decry in this thread) was just that, an assumption.
"Clueless short dicked eggheads..."
But more than that, it's your general, smug attitude that would cause me to
escort you to the door if you said those things in my house.
Typo, you have them too. It's kind of like another post in which the
letters within the words were all jumbled, my eyes went right over it.
Besides, I doubt you're confused, you're just using it as an excuse to act
Just like my comments in the reply where I mention .357 with out anything
else were to some one else! You were not involved in the entire thread
until you attacked me, in a "comment to some one else" Sorry forgot you
were all about double standards and the do as I say not as I do rule!
