Quick grammar rant

I need sth to do before my sleeping aids, er, I mean anti-histamines, start working.

Personal pronouns are not that hard to use!!!

“The mayor organised a great party for my mother and I” – WRONG!
Why? The pronoun is an object here. Remove your mother from the equation. “The mayor organised a great party for I”? No, you would not say that. So it is also “The mayor organised a great party for my mother and me.”

“The mayor organised a great party for my mother and myself” – WRONG!
This one I am actually sometimes tempted to fall for myself (!). “Myself” is generally a reflexive pronoun: I wash myself. Sometimes (like my example just above) you use it for emphasis – however only when you have used “I” previously in the sentence.

I like this guy‘s short explanatory text (pretty much same as mine, but with more detail) and his general list of common errors in English looks like a great resource, but my pills are starting to work, and besides I usually get it right in English anyway.

Time for the Paris report – as usual!

Posted on May 18th, 2009 @ 23:59 in Travel

For those not interested in the minutiae: it was a nice trip as always, tho the weather was often shit/rainy (but also two nice mornings for cycling). Sunday morning when my mum was gonna cycle with me, it rained. :-( And one hour before I was due to leave on Sunday it suddenly got really nice and sunny. Made it so much harder to leave, but it meant I got another nice hour of cycling done. :-) More »

Heh, this reminded me of how obsessed we used to be with Apple Mentos. Then totally didn’t care anymore. Tho I wouldn’t be adverse to trying fuji apple. Sounds fun.
