Quick grammar rant

Posted on May 27th, 2009 @ 21:47 in Uncategorized

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.

[written while procrastinating when I really should be rewriting my CV. oh, I shouldn’t have said that cuz now everyone knows I’m applying for a job and will want to know how it went. anyway, it’s an internal thing again and I’m only applying cuz the hiring manager took the time to give me some CV coaching (also he’s gay and a bastard, what more could I want? kidding! sort of). ok onwards…] More »

Time for the Paris report – as usual!

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

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 »

Back from road trip – ode to Norway

Posted on May 4th, 2009 @ 23:28 in Uncategorized

Have been for a day already but now there are pics. They will give you a pretty good idea of what we did and saw so I won’t need to write a proper entry. Let me add tho, as the pics don’t really get that across, that Norway is just so stunningly beautiful. I just love its landscapes, esp. the mountains, and generally the grey rock. And all that water! There’s just lakes and rivers everywhere, and there’s water seeping and dripping down mountains and rocks, there’s just so much of it. And the many different kinds of green, dark pine forests, lush deeply green pastures, drier green interspersed with yellow… and always those rocks.

Tomorrow I am going back to Brighton, which sucks. Brighton doesn’t, but having to go home does. As always, this trip was far too short. But in July I will have a Mon and a Jimmy! 😀 Which reminds me, tomorrow we must make plans.
