my social studies teacher kept saying "biasness" the other day, and I just wanted to slap her.
Not too sure if it was cos she kept saying biasness though.

Also, on tv, there's this woman and she always says "acceptable" but pronounces the c's as s's. It really annoys me haha.

EDIT: FIXED!

My parents are the type to give me alcohol. not in a "be an alcoholic" kinda way, just in a "respect alcohol, here" kinda way.

(all days end in Y ;))

Horrid. Although I do use it from time to time.


http://dictionary.reference.com/dic?q=horrid&search=search


Are we so low on words that are not words, that we're now using words that are, in fact, words?

Horrid's been made a word? I feel the sky hitting my head.. D:

It's been a word since 1580... how old are you exactly?

Well, we're not supposed to know, but I suppose since it's just us Shadowboxers here...

is 'unorganised' a word? I hear so many people say it... I think it should be disorganised. maybe?

also, I hate it when people use "accidently" or "incidently" in typing. -ally is your friend.

Webster's says it is...

They suggest that "unorganized" is more a state of being (my book collection is unorganized)...
while "disorganized" suggests a state of operation/function (my business is disorganized).

In my view, there's a lot of room for overlap there.

counsel when describing the thingie between the front seats in a car.

epitaph when talking about a racial slur.


Things I learned while preparing to make fun of Indie for using extortionate wrongly:  e.g., "extortionate amounts of tea.":

extortionate, in its secondary sense, does indeed mean exorbitant

I suppose that "ex"caping might work if you were running away from a previous lover.

Now I feel like a cryptoquip, haha.
