I got passive tagged by
(I call her Squish) recently (because no one likes tagging anyone, myself included). So in light of people never following the rules of these, I thought I'd take out the ten questions part, share 6 things about myself, and tag one person.
1. Each person must post 6 things about themselves in their journal.
2. You have to choose 8 people to tag and post their icons on your journal.
3. Go to their page and tell them you have tagged them.
4. No tag backs.
5. No stuff in the tagging section about "you're tagged if you're reading this".
- My favorite national anthem is the Russian national anthem. Listen to the Red Army Choir perform it and try to say you don't feel the energy.
- I'm not saying I like pain, but I'm not saying I don't like pain, either.
- There is definitely a time and place to correct grammar and spelling, as many times it makes the corrector seem pretentious. Everyone makes mistakes. I've probably made them in this journal. Feel free to point them out. But I cringe when I see common mistakes like "your" instead of "you're" and "should of" instead of "should have" or "should've." I get even more upset when people act like it's no big deal when they misuse words. I've seriously seen someone explain, "Have you ever thought that 'your' sounds just like 'you're' and that's why it doesn't matter which is used?" thinking that fully justified his mistake. I've even seen the subtitles in Skyrim say "couldn't of." Why do people not even want to TRY to spell correctly? Have they NO idea how much of a first impression that leaves, even if in "text speak?" Do they think they'll get priority for potential hirers if the other applicant can spell properly? How does one even of? One can have. One can't of. If someone says, "Your stupid," and is unable to see the irony, then grammar Nazism is permitted. Interestingly, I seem to notice that people who speak English as a second language make these mistakes less often.
In French, "par les" ("by the") sounds like "parler" ("speak"). French speakers, is it common to write "par les" instead of "parler?" I'm betting that mistake is avoided even if they "sound the same" because "Par les vous anglais?" makes no sense. That means, "By the you English?"
- I never ate pizza until I was 14 years old.
- I need a fan (or two) to sleep.
- It says it by my name, but I was named after Erik Estrada. CHiPs was kind of the thing when I was born.
I tag YOU! You know who you are!
