Happy birthday to me!



So today I'm officially 30 years old.  To those of you who sent in gifts of bad grammar, thank you!  The one in this post came from STEVE.  I suspect he was trying to make my brain explode.  I don't think I have ever red penned an entire two paragraphs before.  Yikes!  I also suspect that the person who wrote the above two paragraphs was a non-native English speaker.  At least, I hope that's the case--the errors are much more understandable (and also charming) if they're coming from someone who's trying really hard to learn the English language!  (If this came from a native English speaker, though, I feel like we're doomed.)

To those of you who couldn't find me a grammar error for my birthday, it's OK, I still love you...but I'd love you a bit more if you recommend Red Pen, Inc. to one or several of your friends.  You can also follow the Red Pen, Inc. blog network on Facebook and/or join RPI's Facebook fan page.  It's my birthday...I can afford to be absolutely shameless with self-promotion!

I'm sending this blog to my 16 year old daughter. She will love your blog. Poor grammar has ended more than one budding romance for her.

Oops, happy belated birthday!

Steve almost made MY head explode too. But this definitely looks like Engrish to me. ;)
