You just magically disappeared at 10:15PM, and I miss you. So I'm "talking" to you here. I was going to "ask" this on fcukyeah but I was scared that Fiona Li would see it first and go "wtf".
Sorry for disappearing on you again!
And thanks for this message! :)
You’re the cutest.
How come nothing annoys you any more?
JOKES. I KNOW YOU'RE BUSY.
In this context, I would use ‘anymore’. Also, I’m not busy, I’m just lazy.
You should make a list of things that annoy you too — you’d probably have more than I do.
A conversation I had with someone today
I was reading somebody’s creative writing story today.
Me: You forgot to use an apostrophe here.
Her: If you don’t shut up, I’m going to shove your phone in your mouth.
Me: I’m sorry.
She then proceeded to fabricate all kinds of excuses as to why she was (supposedly justifiably) grammatically incompetent.
She clearly requested that others read her creative writing piece (which nobody understood in the end — most likely due to a combination of poor grammar, an utterly confusing storyline and incredibly ambiguous characters).
She was also very serious about the phone-shoving. Clearly, some people find it difficult to accept the facts, when they don’t appear to be in their favour.
If she had come up with a plausible argument as to why she’d omitted an apostrophe (without the fault being her own), I’d ‘shut up’.
But what is the pointof being furious over something so petty (especially when nobody else is seeking an argument) and then making excuses for your own ineptness? If you ask for others to read your work, aren’t you, in a way, encouraging feedback or advice?
Or are you just looking for others to praise you for your exorbitantly flowery, descriptive language (in which case you are exceedingly egotistic)?
19. Justin Bieber’s hair flick.
I just don’t like it. Sorry, Bieber-hair-flick fans.
Also, because it is slightly relevant, here is a picture of a woman who looks like Justin Bieber:
HI BUDDY. HAVE NOT HEARD FROM YOU IN AGES.
18. People who boast (especially when they clearly have nothing to boast about).
If you’ve really achieved something remarkable, yet you need to advertise and boast about your achievement in order to validate it, you’re probably not that great.
(This Facebook post is also a fine example of poor spelling.)
It’s not a word.
Ironically, as seen in the fifth post in the image above, someone posted ‘Smetyms u dont c even wen its ryt infront of u' ('Sometimes you don't see it even when it's right in front of you').
Well said, stupid Facebook person.
LOLLLLLLLLLLLLLL HAHAHAHA OH CELIARRRRR YOU SO FUNNAY!!!!!!!!!!!
IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TOMORROW (I THINK? THAT’S WHAT I WAS TOLD)!
I don’t know why but I thought you were back already D:
I’m assuming (i.e. hoping) you did the “LOLLLLLLLLLLLLLL HAHAHAHA” etc on purpose in an attempt to annoy me. If so, it didn’t work :)
I'm taking notes.
(And yes, I know you know my IP)
I MISS YOU
(I guessed it was you, but I checked just to make sure)
16. People who modulate to a lower key during a rendition of ‘Happy Birthday’.
Often, people will change keys when singing ‘Happy Birthday’.
Here, I have written the lyrics and notes for Happy Birthday, in B flat major (not for any particular reason, except that it’s my favourite key).
After singing the first line (ending with the F4 semiquaver in this case) there is a jump, the interval of an octave, up to the F5 crotchet on the next line. Most people don’t account for this interval/note when they begin to sing Happy Birthday and thus they begin in a key too high for their register, often having to resort to singing in falsetto or modulating to a (much) lower key.
Apologies for my homely writing and the mediocre photo quality.
