Topic: Jersey Shore Shark Attacks of 1916
Posted: Wednesday, January 6, 2010 2:51:15 PM
My biggest problem with the Jersey Shore is crabs. Almost every time I go on family vacation, I end up standing in the ocean with one hanging off of my big toe!
Topic: What three elements are necessary for a successful relationship?
Posted: Wednesday, January 6, 2010 2:37:07 PM
1.) Trust
2.) Respect
3.) Understanding

I've come to find that this is what I generally look for in someone else. All of these combined should just naturally lead to love : )

Topic: In Honor of Halloween...

Every year I try to make my own costume. So far, my best was Lara Croft, but I think this year's might top that - Lady Gaga. The woman is just too kooky NOT to imitate!

Reese's Peanut Butter cups are also my absolute favorite (along with Sixlets) but dark chocolate PB Cups? Now that's a new one I have yet to try!
Topic: Home Library
Posted: Tuesday, September 8, 2009 11:21:28 AM
Do any of you catalog the books in your home library? I've heard of software and the like that can aid in doing this, but I'm just wondering if anyone does it and if it's worth it?
Topic: irregardless.
Posted: Monday, August 31, 2009 11:57:50 AM
I'm not sure if this is a topic here already; if it is, I apologize and feel free to delete this!

My boyfriend and I were discussing the word "irregardless". He thinks it's not a legitimate word, something used by people who are too lazy to use the proper "regardless".

Webster's says:

Irregardless is considered nonstandard because of the two negative elements ir- and -less. It was probably formed on the analogy of such words as irrespective, irrelevant, and irreparable. Those who use it, including on occasion educated speakers, may do so from a desire to add emphasis. Irregardless first appeared in the early 20th century and was perhaps popularized by its use in a comic radio program of the 1930s.



What are your thoughts on this?
Topic: favorite writing supplies.
Posted: Monday, August 31, 2009 11:54:03 AM
I adore lead pencils. I have no idea why, because when they break it's SO aggravating, but there's something about the way it writes that I love.

Topic: inglourious basterds.
Posted: Monday, August 31, 2009 11:52:00 AM
I also have a question concerning a certain point made in the movie (possible spoilers? don't read further if you don't want to!)

One member of the Basterds gives himself away by holding up his pointer, middle and ring finger to indicate the number 3. A woman in the film explains that Germans do not indicate the number 3 that way with their hands; rather, they hold up their thumb, pointer and middle fingers.

Is this true, or something Tarantino made up for the movie?
Topic: typewriters.
Posted: Monday, August 31, 2009 11:47:49 AM
In all the consignment shopping I've been doing lately, I keep running across typewriters - the older kinds, with the ink ribbon. I'd really like to purchase one, but I have a concern: are ink ribbons for typewriters still sold?
