But then I did spend 2 hours going shopping too.

How is happy hump day remotely sexist? It's referring to the week being a hill. Monday and Tuesday going up, Wednesday going over the hump and Thursday and Friday going down the other side (towards the weekend) what on earth do other people think it means?

This is the most disappointing article you GUYS have ever posted.
Although it may be based on uncommon grammar and colloquialisms, this entire article is opinion; not everyone shares them, Grammarly, so stop acting like they're law! Stick to grammar!

Lazy/rushed endings are one of my reading bugbears especially as I read a lot of fantasy and sci-fi. You can have an epic, big battle/ending sequence then there's a two page epilogue ending chapter to finish it off, lazy! Boo! Hiss! Etc!
04/25/2017 at 18:22
That said, "said" is pretty much the only word you should use most of the time. There are obvious exceptions, and exceptions that can be subjective. The real problem in that first example is the needless back and forth that could be summarized as "They bickered for a while"
04/25/2017 at 17:43
Writers seem to have serious issues with endings in general. I haven't had NEARLY the bad experiences with the other three that I have with that one.

This is a perfect definition for a schizofrenic person, not a writer. IN any case, an introvert has no interest in telling stories.

04/24/2017 at 19:15
Libraries and second hand bookstores. Our local market also has a bookstall raising money for a local hospice. £1 a book. I use that as a lending library too.
04/24/2017 at 20:57
Nothing wrong with books that have been read. Of course you want a mint condition volume of your favorite(s). I've bought a lot of books at thrift stores, flea markets, and second hand-book stores. And eBay, I forgot about eBay - speaking of mint condition and cheap!

It most certainly does. I've been with the company I work for going on 5 years been through 7 managers and this current and hopefully last one will stay he's an amazing manager always sees the positive in everything and in all of us. Quality like that is unfortunately rare, we make sure to take care off and appreciate him.

In my dialect, "morning" and "mourning" are completely distinct, but that doesn't mean I don't mourn every Sunday because another Monday morning is coming.
Well, it's not just restricted to Mondays, either, though...

There was a time when I was young and enthusiastic when the job itself was a motivation. Later, when reality set in, the paycheck was the motivation. Doing a good job was necessary so I didn't have to do it again, and I had my self-respect to consider because I was not a slob. Bosses who gave motivational lectures but never gave out compliments or any other sorts of rewards did not get it that you have to do both.

I used to be the workaholic type for years. Then I stopped, and now I work 7/8 hours and that's it. I don't think about work when I'm not there. The most difficult part is not giving in to the pressure of knowing that those in your present work life don't see you as someone who "goes the extra mile," which often means working late or on weekends. Doing so cost me my health, but I'm better now. I won't do it anymore.

It's long beens said that the difference between a Shakespearean comedy and tragedy is that everyone gets married at the end of one and everyone dies at the end of the other.

I always ask my students, "If this is the tragedy of...What does that mean?" They respond, "EVERYONE DIES!!" I love Shakespeare and HS students!
04/23/2017 at 17:21
The point of Shakespeare's tragedies is that NOT everyone dies. Those (usually more minor) characters, who can pass on the hopes and lessons learned in the tragedies of the protagonists, live on, enlightened. >?

The caption is perfect! Taken from the first verses put on record by rapper 'the Notorious B.I.G. (aka Biggy Smalls) The verse continues, "I love it when you call me Big Poppa, the Show Stoppa, the Rhyme Droppa.... "
"Show Stoppa" relates to Shakespeare's stage productions, and "Rhyme Droppa" relates of course, to his poems and sonnets. Hats off to Grammarly for connecting Shakespeare and Hip Hop! 😀

Absolutely not. Hats off to Shakey for what he did do, but 'father of the language' does not go to him, even if it goes to any individual which I doubt.
