we’re grammar elitists

… but sometimes people are just ridiculous, so it’s okay.

A conversation between Jen and me (notice I did not say “Jen and I”, because it’s a prepositional phrase, and pronouns following prepositional phrases are always in the objective case, ergo, ‘between you and me’) about the little things that shouldn’t bother us, but rub us a teensy bit the wrong way.

i.e. someone writing ‘i balled my eyes out’

ouch. that sounds like it might hurt.

Anyway, on the heels of this conversation:

Jen’s gchat status: I hate APA formatting.

me: MLA forever!

Jen: werd.

me: we are so nerdy.

And we are <3
