My Geekiness Revealed

As some of you may have noticed, I do not always use proper English when writing this blog. I know I know, you're saying, "But Sarah, you're an English major! Surely you know how to conjugate the verb lie as in lie in bed." Of course I do and I just tested myself by taking a quiz on this site and I got a perfect score. I am taking a stand against this irregular verb and using it in the regular fashion. Totally on purpose. I will not lie in a bed when I could much easier lay in a bed. I will not say I have lain anywhere. I simply refuse. It's too stupid. To lie means to tell an untruth, and to confuse it with laying on a bed is just asking for trouble.

Along the same lines, I will write tonite instead of tonight. It's more efficient and just makes more sense. I will not however confuse the words site and sight because they mean different things. See, I have my own rules so I'm not stupid or uneducated. I'm a rebel with a cause. A grammar cause.

So if you see a verb that isn't conjugated in the "proper" fashion, or if you see a more simplistic spelling of a word, know that I'm doing it on purpose to make this a better world for us all.

You're welcome.


  1. fyi...everytime I post a response on your blog I really struggle over proof reading and making sure I am using proper spelling, grammar and punctuation. I like to think I am pretty with that, but you make me nervous......don't judge me! :)

  2. I don't care if it's gramatically correct or not...NEVER stop writing this blog!

    Is gramatically a word?? I'm with Jill on proofreading my stuff, knowing that you'll be reading it. I thought I was pretty good at wrtiting, then I read your blog, and can I compete with that???

  3. How about when you use "it's" when it should be "its?" What are you protesting on that one? (Cat sound)

  4. LOL!! Filthy lying birthday girl. Hope you had a great day.


I would love your comments.
