Trolleys, maths, Ebonics, and more stuff about language

Posted July 25th, 2011 at 1:54 PM by Esper (The Uncarved Blog)

Before I start what will surely be a very long post, let me say that I love languages. I love learning them, reading about them, listening to them. My biggest regret in college was not going for a linguistics degree because I didn't realize I could until it was too late.

So I'm bringing up this topic because of two things. One was an article I saw on the BBC news website where Britons got to complain about their least favourite Americanisms and the other was something someone at work...

Muppets, Cars, and Torchwood

Posted July 10th, 2011 at 12:19 PM by Esper (The Uncarved Blog)

I went to the movies yesterday and saw another amazing trailer for the new Muppets movie which fills me with all kinds of sugary joy. But more importantly I saw Cars 2, which I somehow never got around to seeing.

Cars 2 was the best thing I've seen this summer. It is 10 times better than Cars was, and that was still a great movie despite being one of the weakest Pixar movies. I love this movie so much I'm gushing. I haven't gushed about a movie so much since Black Swan and before that...

People don't read and they don't think. (They also don't listen.)

When I get frustrated there are two sides of me that can show up: the helpless doormat who can't handle the pressure and the judgmental ass. When I'm at work I get frustrated quite easily.

So you'd think that working at a school like I do would mean I encounter a lot of people who are smart, eager to learn, and generally have their stuff together. It doesn't. People who go to school are crazy. Today has been one crazy person after another. Before I even started work today I saw a man...

I moved into my new place this weekend. Aside from not having internet hooked up yet (I'm using the one at work - don't tell anyone) it's a pretty nice place. Except...

I met one of my neighbors. The landlord gave me a brief intro to everyone I live around now. Very brief. "Two guys live there." "A woman lives there. She grows a lot of plants." And so on. Very helpful, Mr. Landlord. Now, on Sunday I get a knock at the door and when I open it I see this complete stranger,...
