This would be me. I have no idea why I do this, but like Jace, I think it is because I tend to type in streams of consciousness (or unconsciousness) as well. I don't use the ellipses in my emails....just when I'm posting here or IMing.

Through this world I've stumbled, So many times betrayed
Trying to find an honest word to find, The truth enslaved
Oh you speak to me in riddles, And you speak to me in rhymes
My body aches to breathe your breath, Your words keep me alive
And I would be the one, To hold you down
Kiss you so hard, I'll take your breath away
And after, I'd wipe away the tears
Just close your eyes dear

Oh Sue. Oh Sue Sue Sue I think the fact that your son was in makeup has put a stop to grammar related mabobber things It's ok...I'm pretty sure the same would happen to everyone else put in the same position!

Hi partygirl.

Damn it is correct, but if you write it as one word, it's dammit. I have no idea why! My aunt is an editor and she corrected me on that once.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Re: Deb, Nat, and Brian's Thread of Grammar Shame.

Not a stupid question! According to Yahoo's dictionary it's cell phone, and that's what I'd always thought

I think this thread could mess with my already shaky english

silence between 2 persons is pleasant"
