It's kinda girly to hold it with a needlenose pliers



There is nothing girly about using needlenose pliers to hold a nail, it is far better than breaking a perfectly manicured fingernail. :lol:

Slang is a cop out and shows a lack of energy, creativity and manners. It is also something that drives this girl insane. I just don't get it. There are so many magnificent words to use, that to resort to using words (?) like "wassup" "Huh" "yeahok" just never made any...

I was just planning to try harder to be a more patient person. Now I have to rethink this, add some words to my active vocabulary, lose 5 pounds, excersize more, eat less junk, eat more veggies, aim for a glass of red wine each night, walk the dog more often, and dust on a semi-regular basis. I am ...

:D The great thing about being able to type is that I see no excuse for abbreviating words when text messaging or for IMs. As a result of this, the person I am in IM with will usually start struggling to type out full sentences and even put in a bit of punctuation! It is very amusing, and I suppose ...

Text Messaging

As technology changes our lifestyles, it also changes our language and grammar. I often use the text messaging function on my phone to stay in touch with my co-worker, family and friends. When it comes to speaking about text messaging I often find myself fumbling with the words. I believe that it w...

We don't often use the word "bugger" in Canada. As a child, I was taught that it was one of those "gray" words, or words that are just not used because they are unbecoming or impolite. (Crap, crud and a few others that escape my memory also fall into that category). Today, with ...

In my area of Canada, auctions are a rare thing. Occasionally we have police auctions to sell off the impounded vehicles and recovered stolen property. We also have charity auctions where items are donated and then auctioned off to raise money for a cause. I have never been to a "real" au...
