Words matter and how they are used. Words and language fascinate me; how languages change over time, how different groups of people will create their own words.
Txt msg words leave me cold because I like vowels (one reason I learned Dutch); leet speak reminds me of a bizarre sort of algebra (I never could understand why anyone would want to add letters together! :D) but I've taken to lolspeak in a big way.
Lolspeak is what the lolcats use in captions on Icanhascheezeburger (link on the rhs of this page). I love cats and this site shows, if nothing else, the range of expressions to be found on cats' faces. Strange but true. Have a look :)
The grammar is off the wall too. Usually I'm hot on grammar but cats - well, they would have their own.
Finished Lesson 3. I am proud owner of 3 ideas for novels.
I did a bit this morning but still not up to usual speed. Getting better slowly though.
I've located Don Quixote - the book, not the man :)
So far, it remains unopened.
Has been rained on torrentially for two days. My runner bean wigwam collapsed - the bamboo poles just split open and over it went O.o
Half-way through Mistborn. I'm really getting into the story and the world now. It occurs to me that I could be doing the writing exercise on this book but I just want to gobble it up and enjoy.
