  • Personally, I like a guy who's smart, intelligent, funny AND HUMOROUS haha! Couldn't resist. Another common one that doesn't make sense is the word "irregardless." The word's "regardless," not "ir..." Not putting anyone down at all, just enjoying our human-ness. We're all human Just little perks, I mean quirks that we all have as people :) Enjoy this Monday!

  • haha... I hate irregardless too. Is it a word? It drives me nuts when people say it. I have a friend who uses it all the time. Like fingernails on a chalkboard to me!!

  • How about "I could care less!" It drives me crazy when people say that. It's I couldn't care less. That means you're at the 0 caring level and can't go lower. Even when I explain it a lot of times people don't understand it.

  • Those are some good ones :) How 'bout this one. She is going to the store with Johnny and I. Okay, here's where the listener's eyes start to glaze over and I start to sound like this "blah blah blah lol" But here's the thing..."with" is a preposition which puts it in the "object" category or "objective case." "She" is the subject of the sentence..."with" is the preposition...and "Johnny and me" (yep, "me,"no's "me") are the objects of the preposition. It's like saying, "...with me" as opposed to "...with I" We wouldn't say She is going to the store with "I." We'd say, "...with me."

    Yikes, how many people are laughing now...or glazed over...and I'm sounding like "blah blah blah." C'mon now, somebody hears what I'm sayin' :)

    Okay, all that writin' made me hungry for a hot fudge sundae! Later guys!
