since we are all native English speakers, and the language is fluid, whatever we want to say is correct.

My sister and her husband live in Idaho. For parties and holidays (and new haircuts), we put her on the webcam so she can attend the celebration. Grandma thinks it's amazing.

All of this discussion has reminded me of my 8th grade English class, in which our teacher played a recording of Patrick Stewart reading Dicken's A Christmas Carol. I could listen to that man read for the rest of my life.

My boyfriend has dyslexia to the point that some of his textbooks are audio, and he hates it so much that he prefers me to read to him. I learned the value of audiobooks not long after we started dating. The inflections and style of the human reader, especially one who can give life to words, is far more valuable than any automated voice. Try reading the book of Jonah from the Bible in a storyteller's voice, as though you're reading to children(complete with sound effects). I'll give you your money back if you don't laugh.

I always wanted to be Janeway. I was a shy little wallflower-nerd who ended up with the Goth kids cause they treated me like a human being.

At least your parents didn't inflict a mullet on you. (I've tried to hide or destroy as many of those pics as possible. Ugh.)

Random thought: If the awesomeness of Jack Black, Chuck Norris, and Wil Wheaton were combined, Congress would make cloning legal, so that every woman could have a copy of the Perfect Man.

He calls himself a Christian, but none of the religious news sites are carrying this story, that I can find. They must not approve of his approach.

I love these posts. They make me feel like I'm not the only (no offense, Wil) bumbling writer in the universe. Last night, to keep my brain focused, I started a journal about what I wanted to do with my writing in a blank book - with a pic of my happy place on it: the beach. I've been writing too much about exciting new ideas, and not enough about the book I'm supposed to be working on. So I worked up basic synopses for the shiny new things, and thus far I'm not cured, but I am hopeful.

I think you need a disclaimer on 17b, which would say: "You may only use your freebie if you are behaving in a sporting manner." We had to stop playing games with one of my sisters because she always insisted on some rule that ended up allowing her to win the game, like no one else could have Boardwalk or Park Place. Now she's married and her hubby doesn't put up with that, but she ran all over us non-confrontational types. Sometimes it was the randomness of the dice that kept it fair.
