Just as in the changes made above, these sentences would sound slightly better in a different order.
1. I'll be very busy all day tomorrow.
2. I will be very busy all day today. (the "have to be" sounds awkward)
I can't endure the messy room.

He can't endure his roomate's messy room.
So he cleaned the room up.
Jimmy found that he cleaned his roomate room and unbelieveable.
"Why did you clean your roomate's room?"
the messy room.
" he answered.
Does it sound nature?
This needs a bit of work, tommaso.
Your first two sentences should probably be combined into one: He couldn't endure his roommate's messy room, so he cleaned it up.
I would also combine the next two: When Jimmy found that he had cleaned his roommate's mess, he couldn't believe it and asked, "Why did you clean your roommate's room?"
The last sentence sounds fine.

You could have a slow leak that results in a flat tire while you are driving or while you are parked.
A book club idea

Thanks for the suggestion. There are about 20 people in our book club, but attendance is usually more like 10-12. We meet irregularly. I guess we're pretty casual about our meetings. Maybe as much a social meeting as a book discussion. The group is connected by a common place of employment, though not all of us still work there. We usually choose books via email discussions. This can get long and tedious with people replying-all with suggestions. When we first started, it was much smaller and one of our members had a second job at a book store. She had her finger on the pulse of current literature, so to speak, and was able to offer great suggestions. Maybe we are too big and unwieldy now. We haven't met in a couple of months. But I miss everyone and I want us to start up again. I'm hoping my idea will work.

A book club idea

My book club always has a hard time agreeing on a book. I have an idea for our next meeting that should avoid this problem. I'd like everyone to bring their own choice (or several) and discuss it using some fun conversation starters. So far, I have these:
-This book had something that surprised me
-This book reminds me of …
-If this book were a meal, it would be …
-The most controversial thing in this book
-Your moment of Zen
-Is this book more you or more your mother?
-What color is this book?
-If the characters were animals, what kind would they be?
-What era would ban or burn this book? (choose from any time period- past, present, or future.)
-Make up a better title
I plan to either put these on cards to be drawn from a basket or hand out a list and let people choose their own.
Does anyone have any ideas to add to the list?
Use of "following"

Since the link follows the sentence, that is correct. Doesn't your friend think that the sentence and the link count as two things?

It would probably be called a chalkboard in this instance.

Dear, I'm afraid public school is not the right place for our son.
Who's buying the next round?
