But the movie was good in and of itself, but I think at the end they should have said "we made up a lot of this. Take it with a grain of salt "
I loved the movie, just arrived home to read this. But how did they dramatize it? Do you know?

It's not like I didn't suspect it. I mean, the sequence of events at the airport is crazy.

Oh no! I have no idea what you said but it sounds bad. You can't fix it? I believe in you!

My computer has returned from the dead twice, and it was the same thing, probably. Maybe there is something that can be done?

Aren't is the contraction of Are not so it's wrong to write "Aren't I clear?" "Am I not clear?" is the correct one but we usually use the contraction so it's "Ain't I clear?"

Hubby is trying his hand on it. I doubt. I mainly need to retrieve the data from the hard drive. We've been talking about hubby building a new desk top for me. Look like this speed up the decision. Still, I need to retrieve the data.

English standards are slipping among native speakers sadly. Too many people are just muddling contractions up. It's something that really annoys me.

Once a long time ago, I was CORRECTED by this one poster when I said "am I not?" he goodrep me saying "aren't I" was the correct form. And ever since then I have heard or read it in many places.

Except about tennis matches. And that optimism is what got you that avatar in the first place.

Five names? Jeez…

Incorrect. That was my desire to have a bit of fun. Truth be told I wasn't optimistic at all. I'll get you back someday, though. Just you wait.

You better tell that poster he/she was wrong. Today, lots of posters thought their English are good but unfortunately, they are not, which is sad.

I need it fast and hubby is not famous as being fast. But he has his hand on it now and It will be a very long time before I can get my hand on it or convince him we need outside help. I am leaving for Hong Kong in 3 weeks and all info is in my laptop.

Six?! Even more shocking.

I will tempt you into something you won't be able to resist. Revenge is the sweetest feeling ever.

Revenge is overrated really. I have 6 names and one is the name of a tree and the other an animal. All of this in portuguese, obviously.
