D'awww! xD I'm sure that is not true.
*checks yo post count*
...OK, maybe it is. A little bit. But we are good friends, really we are! We'd never, say, dissect your nose and feed it to a shark. Or unload you if all three of us were stuck in a hot air balloon and we were losing altitude. Or sell you to a knowledgable and advanced alien species in return for the secret of really good broth. None of those things. /has been watching too much noel fielding

You and Andy are my only friends on here so
I'm trying to get online more often! Spring Break is coming up for me, so I'll definitely be on. :D

Oh oh oh! :D While we're on the subject of grammatical stupidity, what about when people type ',,,' instead of '...'? IT'S LIKE NAILING A DUNCE'S CAP TO YOUR FOREHEAD AND REPEATEDLY POKING PEOPLE IN THE EYE WITH IT. Or when they get all confused about semi-colon usage and resort to cheap little commas instead! Or when they write questions and leave off the query mark! Or when they write sentences that are obviously not questions but stick a query mark afterwards just to underline what an avant-garde kind of idiot they are! Or... but no, I'll stop. Wouldn't want to pop another vein.
RateMyTeachers is so ripe for misuse, though. I mean, the really rubbish ones don't read it and if they do they don't care, whereas the decent ones will read it and get upset by any negative comments. Which are inevitable because a site like that is like a gigantic glow lamp for morons. *wipes brow* I'm done! (For now.)
XD nicely memed. But in a half-hearted attempt to change your mind, I shall quote a sparkling review from, guess where, Meyer's own website:
"Wow! I must admit, that when I heard about Twilight, by Stephanie Meyer, I was very intrigued. A book about a regular teenage girl— just like you and me— falling in love with a gorgeous vampire? Who wouldn't want to read it? I was hooked from the first page, and as I read it, it only got better. Twilight is great because it seems so ordinary; is it possible for this situation to happen in your life? Imagine seeing a guy, more handsome than any you've ever seen, and not being able to tear you eyes away from him. Imagine that the force of your mutual chemistry feels like electricity. I promise you that every girl will want to be Isabella Swan. Throw in a little danger, a sticky situation, and a love more powerful than either character has ever known, and what do you get? Stephenie Meyer's Twilight. It is definitely a book worth reading."
IT MAKES SO HILARIOUSLY LITTLE SENSE.

I definitely accept the position!
Funny story about excessive exclamation point usage- someone left a bad review of my favorite teacher on RateMyTeachers.com and said "thanks for all the unneccessary homework !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" I felt like quoting it and putting a giant [SIC] after it. Not only did they use excessive exclamation points and abandon proper capitalization, but THEY PUT A SPACE BETWEEN THE LAST WORD AND THE PUNCTUATION. NOTHING BOTHERS ME MORE. Plus it's my favorite teacher so I'm really defensive of her. :p
As for Breaking Dawn, I've never read it nor have I seen the movie, but my general opinion of all things Twilight can be summed up by this picture:

XD what an excellent slogan. I am appointing you Chief President Lady in Charge of Marketing, PR and Excessive Exclamation Point Usage, if you will accept the position.
In other, random news: because I am conducting a miniature survey, what are your thoughts on Breaking Dawn? (Assuming you've read/watched it.) You'll have to be creative to get around the swear filter, but I have the utmost confidence in you.

Woot! Grammar Group FTW. :D To serve and correct. :D

OH MY GAWD YOU ACTUALLY DID.

I LOVE IT. I JUST... I LOVE IT. I'm putting it in my signature. I regret nothing. :p

...I tried making Andy take a grammar test. He murdered two blameless lovebirds and stuffed them in the boot of a car.
And since I am procrastinating like crazy today, how's this for a banner?
March 13th, 2012 4:51 PMpokemaster0823
I am all for forming the Grammar Group. In fact, I'm so for it that I'm smiling like an idiot at a computer screen right now. :D Maybe we should make Andy take a grammar test in order to join.
We can have tiny little banners in our signatures and everything. :p

You're gonna be an English teacher? :D Dude, that is so awesome! I had the best English teacher in high school - it's one of the best subjects to teach, I reckon, if only because there's so much potential for you to make school epic.
And the feeling is very mutual! :D We three can form the Grammar Group, if you like. (Well, me and you. Maybe Andy. MAYBE.) A triad fighting the forces of missing apostrophes, misplaced semi-colons and excessive exclamation marks. WE SHALL BE UNSTOPPABLE.

NO, NO, FIGHT YOUR GRAMMAR BATTLES. :D As a future English teacher, it's like paradise! I love knowing that other people are willing to fight wars in the name of good grammar. :p Like I told Andy, it is at this moment that I know I befriended the right people on PC. :D
