Fun stuff for Friday!

Since it's Friday afternoon and you're all probably procrastinating like I am, I thought I'd throw some fun stuff your way to help keep you thoroughly entertained and distracted during the final hours of the work week...

* RED PEN, INC. IN THE PRESS! Red Pen, Inc. (along with several other fabulous grammar-oriented blogs) got a mention in the National Post this week! Click here to check out the article.

* THE MOTHER OF ALL GRAMMAR FAILS... The folks at Vanity Fair decided to try their hand at proofreading Sarah Palin's resignation speech. The result? A lot of red pen. It's hilarious...check it out here. Thanks to KC and PAT for sending me this link!

* HOORAY FOR SNARKINESS! Red Pen, Inc. reader YVIE pointed me in the direction of the snarky, funny blog Avoid This Job. This post is my favorite one I've read on there so far, with this one coming in at a close second. YVIE notes that these posts are "continuing to prove that people who suck at grammar are also incredibly creepy." I totally agree!

Have a happy weekend, everyone! I'm already antsy for my weekend to get started, as I'm going to see Jason Mraz and G. Love and Special Sauce tonight! *squeal* :)

@ Bridgete: I'm so glad the words chosen to describe RPI were "smart" and "snarky." Yay! :)

Oh! KC *was* my mom! I saw it and thought, "Mom?" but there are plenty of KCs out there...lol. Yay!

Indeed, she is! And I remember that she submitted something else for RPI, so you will probably see her name on here again soon! :)

Oh, God. The edited Palin Resignation makes my day.
