I tend to ask extremely stupid questions. Yes, they're stupid because the answer is usually right in front of me 99.9% of the time! (Even if I insist, at first, that it isn't!)

One really big peeve I've realized, I dislike it when someone says something is wrong based off of the usage being uncommon. Think outside the box, and a new world of usage may surprise you! (I still haven't the faintest clue if I'm being sarcastic or not with that last bit...? Ah, yes, slightly sarcastic.) I also dislike when people suggest diminishing a nice set of vocabulary just because the words are not used often in today's time. It sickens me when I see this.

  • I love to read
  • I love to write
  • I love music
  • I love making [pointless] hobby sites
  • And nothing gets between me and raspberries ;)

I've been stuck on writing three different books since I was 17. Keeping that in mind... I know, realistically, I'm probably never going to be an amazing author and will have to die with the dream of being a best-seller still in my head. Thankfully, I have this great interest in web 'design'. I hate using that word, because most people who say 'Oh yeah, I'm totally into web design', are the same people using Dreamweaver or some other WYSIWYG program instead of opening up a trusty notepad-like blank document and getting down and dirty with coding.
(Loved-ones say I'm spectacular with assumptions...)

Along with making pointless hobby sites, writing amateur poetry (out of a collection, I have only maybe about 5 that I am particularly proud of), and being sick with writers' block, I'm a huge sucker for reading and writing fanfiction. (Go figure, no writers' block there--for the most part.)

I tend to make really bad/stupid/careless jokes. (Bad having a multitude of meanings, hence dash word dash... XD)

There is more about me that I'd like to share, but I think I've blabbered long enough. You all have a great one!

comment why is “their” the wrong usage in this sentence?
That can easily be fixed by taking out one letter, 's'. Then the problem would be solved and there need not be further debate about 'their'. Whoo, problem solved, yeah?

@FumbleFingers I honestly believe that was bad wording, originally, on my end. My apologies. And when Mechanical snail had put in his/her comment, I was moved to debate a rather pointless argument; has since been removed.

@FumbleFingers Where did I say that singular 'they' is only valid with inanimate objects? I didn't. Instead, I had said that 'family' is NOT an inanimate object. If anything, you were mistaken.

@cbmeeks Okay, but yeah, just take out the second comma and then you're good!

@tchrist I do see that, but the last sentence was based off of my speech. As you can see, though, my response and correction to the question is all that matters. ;)

I don't see why you find it necessary to tag in 'using your default browser'. Assuming this is on a webpage, they would already be using their default browser, yeah?

comment When speaking of age 13 and over, is it 12+ or 13+?
When you look at children toys, they don't say 3+ for ages four and up. No, they are saying that ages 3 and up are allowed to play with that toy.

@Mechanicalsnail As I had clearly said in my answer, you don't define family as something inanimate. One would think that if something were NOT inanimate, that it would then be animate. Thus, what you should have said was 'Concepts can't be animate', and you'd be wrong there too. Family, if used as a concept, is a moving one. Therefore, animate. I'd hate to think of 'family' as "stagnant".
