Need Mauer power to stay awake... (I do talk grammar later in this post...really, I do...)


It's Friday...and thank goodness for that. I kinda feel like my eyes are bleeding. They're not, really, but after watching a Twins baseball game that lasted nearly five hours--and watching several innings of a real nail-biter of a Phillies game simultaneously--I feel a wee bit drained and raw. Although the Twins lost that insanely loooooooong game, at least it was nearly five hours of getting to watch Joe Mauer (above) and his magic sideburns (I've recently discovered I have a sideburns fetish--hey, don't judge, it could be much, much worse!). I seriously think I'm keeping myself awake today by looking up at that picture, murmuring "Ooh, pretty," and taking another large sip of caffeine.

Anyway...grammar! Funny grammar! That's what you're here for, right? Lucky for you, I've found something entertaining...



This is so cute. I mean, yes, it's a stupid and silly error, but it just sounds so charming. It sounds absolutely delightful to think that you can include whole alphabets in your passwords instead of just plain ol' boring letters. (But apparently you can only use one underscore, as they didn't make that plural...)

To those of you in the States, have a wonderful Labor Day weekend! I'll be back next week with more funny grammar...baseball rantings...or something!

My sideburns meet at the center of my chin and no one (including my wife) gushes like that about me. Must find another gimmick...

LOL. Those sound more like Neil Young sideburns as opposed to Joe Mauer sideburns!

Sweet! Finally a site where I can use this awesome password:
