    That's one of my peeves too.

      Gah, that one kills me too.

      But then they'd also have to remember to change "a" to "an." You're asking way too much

        That word is in my top 5 pet peeves (not just grammar-related ones). I had an English teacher in high school who used it ALL. THE. TIME. We tried and tried to get her to stop, but she seemed to get some sick amusement out of upsetting us.

        One that probably annoys most people but I find hilarious and awesome is misplaced quotation marks. For example:
        "mayness, you need to have a siggy line that says "Paleo Information Desk" or something!" -FMN <3

        I'm blogging again, at least a little bit.

          Sometimes you need to be told the truth in order to be able to see it.

                  I don't think I need to add anything to the lose/loose discussion, but I have to tell you, this phrase has made my week!
