I'm not one to obsessively use spellcheck or quibble over usage errors (cause, hello, ESL product here!) but sometimes, sometimes, an error gets so common on your flist (by that I mean communities and fic posts) that you get to a breaking point where each time you see it, your blood boils over, and you have to take a stand and shout, "THIS SHALL NOT PASS." Cause seriously?

Definitely =/= Definately

and ALSO:

Definitely =/= Defiantly.


AND IT NEEDS TO BE STOPPED. IT IS A FORCE FOR EEEEBIL.

I mean, JC on a donkey people, if you're going to use inflict all those adverbs on us, learn the difference:



"I definitely want a cupcake," Jack O'Neill said defiantly. "This diet is ass."

"Oh it'll definitely be your ass, O'Neill," said Thor, rolling his giant head on his tiny neck in what was, Jack surmised, an attempt to be sassy. "You know that's where that cupcake is going straight to, umm hmm."

Except it definitely wasn't sassy and Jack was finding Thor's newfound sauciness rather tiresome. As well as Thor's dieting advice. How did he get to be such a little guy, anyway?

"You should definitely cut the carbs and eat more Asgard yellow tofu, O'Neill."

"Hey, I'm not eating that crap," Jack retorted defiantly, eyeing Thor up and down. "I hear it stunts your growth."

"Not to barge in here gentlemen," interrupted General Hammond anyway, "But we definitely need get back to discussing this mission."

Jack turned his head from one bald being to the other. "You can't stop me, General!" he cried defiantly. "I'm definitely taking SG-1 and getting on that Goa'uld mothership no matter what those pencil-pushing bureaucrats say!"

Hammond chuckled softly. "Colonel, since when have I ever not let SG-1 do whatever it wanted?" he asked indulgently. "You definitely have a go."

"Definitely?"

"Definitely. No need to be so defiant."



See? Not so hard. And not a single "defin-a-tely" among them.

Okay El Jay world, if you haven't got it down yet, here's an exercise so you can practice. Fill in the blanks with "definitely" or "defiantly":


Screw the regs! thought Sam _________. I'm_________ going to get it on with my hot CO.

Just then, the object of her lusty thoughts walked into her lab with Daniel in tow. "Carter, is my ass getting big?"

_________. But she said: "Excuse me, Sir?"

"I've been looking at Jack's ass a great deal recently," said Daniel, "And I've come to the conclusion that it's _________ getting larger."

O'Neill looked from his ass to Daniel and then to Sam again. "Is this true, Carter?"

"Yes sir," she said. "Daniel studies your ass every day."

"No, I mean... is my ass getting larger? Answer the question; that's a direct order."

"I refuse!" Sam cried _________. She was waaaay smarter than that.

"So I guess that means my ass *is* _________ getting larger, huh?"

"_________," said Teal'c, joining the impromptu pre-mission briefing. "I mean, 'INDEED'! Your abductor muscles may be in need of conditioning as well," he observed, raised eyebrow and all.

"Nice of you to join us, Teal'c," said O'Neill.

"As I am currently not on Chulak, I had come to the conclusion that I should _________ have a line."

"Stop being sassy," said O'Neill.

ONE.
I keep seeing these "wrong" livejournal "fake cuts" all over the comms on my flist; they look something like this:

Hi Everyone, I made an all-Journey Jack/Thor fanmix LOLOL. Download and songlist at my journal LOLOLOL!

Follow the fake cut LOLOL!!


Or something like that.

Hello! A fake Livejournal cut should look like a fake Livejournal cut. Meaning: OPEN PARENTHESIS + BOLD TEXT + LINK TO YOUR ENTRY + CLOSED PARENTHESES. What you have is a link with bold font. It's not "fake" anything. OKAY? OKAY!

/ inane, pointless complaining.

TWO.
That being said, I've updated my entry from yesterday about the 600-year old Namdaemun Gate (yes, it was arson). I've posted some historic (historical? whatever, OLD TIMEY) photos for you history buffs, some context, and some feeeeeelings. To see it, follow this *real* fake cut that goes to my last entry: ( you can find it here ).

See? Fake cut! NOT SO HARD. Now that's a fake cut! As fake as an OC boob!
Except that this particular fake cut actually leads to a REAL livejournal cut, which makes it not so much a "fake" cut but a "surrogate" cut... ARGH. My fake cut is having an existential crisis!


THREE. AND THE IMPORTANT THING:

That's right. For the FIRST TIME IN THE HISTORY OF... EVER, "Tequila!" has been defeated! Let us know once and for all that:

mrv3000:d >


It was close. Close! But barring the sudden appearance of a Superdelegate (da dada daaaaaah! - that word should always have a fanfare after it's spoken), we're ready to call it. Awesome! Thanks everyone for participating in the poll and for voting your hearts. Together, we did it! Yes we did! Yes we did!

(That somehow doesn't sound as inspiring in the past tense.)

Anyway, *sniff*.

Oh, sorry to those of you I confused with the disappearing. I went ahead and changed my username because it's a good thing to do after you leave a place of work and you used your work computer to check lj (no matter how careful you are to cover your tracks later).

MORE IMPORTANTLY, regarding results of my username change poll, the winner is: "Tequila."

HELLO! PEOPLE! First, I'm sure I've mentioned her before, but I alre= SECOND, there already is a tequila! You people were of no use at all! I'm so glad I never planned to listen to any of you in the first place! /tantrum

Not that I'm surprised, "Tequila!" has always won *every* poll I've ever posted where it was an option. I was talking to vicki595 earlier, and wondering: what did people vote for before I added "tequila" as a default option for my polls? So I went back to the last poll without "tequila," and found that the winner of that poll was: "Michelle licks her nose. :("

BWAHAHAHA!!!

Which of course, made me wonder: if these two ever went head-to-head, which one would win? Would people be torn? Would they vote along gender/age/race/fandom lines? Or would they vote their hearts?

I've left this poll public so that you can cheat. That's right! Whip out those sock puppets! And even if you have no clue who mrv3000 is, you should vote because this is the defining issue of our time.

Poll #1136486 The Most Important Poll. Ever.

Pick one:

Tequila!
11(42.3%)
Michelle licks her nose. :(
15(57.7%)


And lastly, VOTE YOUR HEARTS, PEOPLE! Vote your hearts!

ETA: :d

"I've narrowed your choices down to five unthinkable options. Each will cause untold misery."

Poll #1132177 Vowel Movements

Pat, I'd like to buy a...

'i' - hyari. "Fool, fool, back to the beginning is the rule!"
1(4.3%)
'o' - To complete the verse, "And on this farm he had some ducks. E-I-E-I... __"
0(0.0%)
'y' - Because Y, too, is a vowel. A VERY MASCULINE VOWEL, but with legitimate claims to voweldom, nonetheless. (Naturally, it blames its lack of recognition/utilization on the oppression of the feminist movement omg!)
1(4.3%)
Fuck the vowels. Just go with 'hyar'. "Oh Dexter, I'lll be hyar now, I promise I'll be hyar!" (*barfs*)
1(4.3%)
LEAVE IT ALONE. woodface gets really confused when you go around doing that username change thing. And the last time she got really, really confused... well, just one word: girl!jack. D: D: D:
7(30.4%)
Tequila!
13(56.5%)


You have til midnight tomorrow! (Or whenever I wake up in the morning, whichever comes first). After which the poll will close and I will completely ignore whatever clicky button ya'll have clicked the most and go with whichever option the duck tells me to.

I am home. Gonna watch something about Rockets and Men and pendulum penises (DON'T ASK) and will go to bed within 1 hr. I mean it! My brain has been in a fog all day and I feel like I've lost a day when I can't afford to lose one. *panics*

Anyone wanna come with me to Hotlanta this weekend? I wanna go ride a roller coaster. Not one of those sleek steel ones built for speed junkies, but one of those slow, large, clunky wooden ones that rattles and jars and pitches you all over the place and makes you wanna hug centrifugal force for being such an awesome vector. And goes up and up and up reaaaaaaaal sloooooow...

Neeways, my mouse doesn't hate me as much as my keyboard, so icons:

I miss the ducks. *sigh* On the other hand, the hamster is chewing at his metal cage bars with Papillon-esque diligence. Quite entertaining in its own way.

I made this for woodface a year ago and finished it today. I know it will make her run the other way, but that's okay, cause that's how she shows she loves me (yes, I would pull her pigtails if she had some).



I can't tell you how much I cried while making this. SERIOUSLY. I hope it makes you cry too. *sniff*
