Listening to Fun. Listening to Elizabeth Mitchell. Listening to Postmodern Jukebox.
Reading articles (started with 700 tonight in the bookmarks folder...would really like to get it down under 600, which'll take a while).
Favorite comment I've read tonight: "the feely feels that feel feely" (although I never use the term "in the feels," I like this explanation of what that means).
Disagree strongly with idea that infinitives should never be split in English. Example sentence I'm working with (should I perhaps say "with which I'm working"? nah, not in this space): "Mark decided to hastily clean the house before his parents returned from their trip" (from The Praxis® Study Companion: English Language Arts: Content Knowledge). The text claims this is an error. Let's look at the sentence without the split infinitive:
- Mark decided hastily to clean the house before his parents returned from their trip. (Sounds like he made the decision in a hasty fashion.)
- Mark decided to clean hastily the house before his parents returned from their trip. (Sounds odd to me, but the meaning's there. I don't think we usually place the adverb after the verb but before the object. Now I'll have to think of a slew of examples.)
YouTube is very convinced, tonight, that I speak Spanish. (Look what I did there...threw "tonight" in at a weird spot.) YouTube, I don't speak that much Spanish.
Daydreaming about getting in an extra-long day at work on Thursday. Happy daydreams. (Yea work I love!)
Wishing the spouse safe travels tomorrow.
Feeling thankful that Pic and I have had a bit of a smoother go of things tonight. (Because, geez, the last three days have been painful. Tears and anger and all-around bad vibes.)
One more note. Hair, I'm talking to you. Any time you'd like to grow out again to a decent length and look, I'll be here to thank you. Because wow.
