Tutorial yesterday went fine  
- although I had a craptastic headache by the time I finally got home, so I fell straight into bed and slept for almost 12 hours which is pretty long for me these days. Except yesterday when I had to get up early, I almost managed to fall asleep over my oatmeal.

I should be getting started with something productive like fine-tuning my presentation or getting on with reading, but I really don't feel like it, besides it occured to me that although Sis had powerpoint, I don't have any software to draw the pretty molecules. I really want to make some icon or watch Doctor Who or Supernatural or even CSI, but no laptop. I could of course plug my external hd into Sis' computer...

I might actually do that since I'm too beat to do anything that requires active participation.

Totally random side note: What really annoyed me is when okay is written OK in a book. That's just crappy.

Does it make a difference if it is on LJ?

Ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok, ok.

:P :P :P

Yus, I'm evil.

On a side note, hope you're doing ok Fran. :D

Oh, on lj I don't really mind :-)

Not doing so badly myself, what about you?

Hope you're feeling better now! It's very annoying when okay is written OK in books. However, I'm a snob. I absolutely hate when people use "s's." For example, Sirius's or Remus's.

I try to avoid the s's thing as well, but I'm usually concerned with avoiding bigger slip-ups when I write in English. I've been learning the language for quite a few years now, but it still vexes me ;-)

I've been told that it's perfectly acceptable in American English, so I wouldn't worry about it. Plus, my second language skills are awful, so I'm not going to criticise anyone else. I'm just a snob. ^_^;;

That's weird -because those annoy the pants off me as well. I had a teacher who kept telling me to spell my "ending in 's' " words with two 's's' and it drove me insane. And people who write 'ok' in any stories I beta will find a couple of letters quietly added to the end *guilty grin*

And don't you hate it when they spell TARDIS with only a capital 'T'? Or even worse *shudders* no capital at all . . . like they're talking about a table or a chair or something. And when they don't give Doctor a capital.

Do you ever get that sinking dread feeling when you start reading a story that sounds like this:

The doctor looked at the tardis console with concern, because it was not looking very good. Since there journey to another planet, the tardis had been behaving almost weirdly, as if it was trying to tell the doctor something.

I came across a sentence like that in the first paragraph of a fic I was looking at, and gave up then and there, lol.

Hmm . . . *looks over comment* I prolly should have saved time and just posted this as an entry in my LJ! Sorry for dumping on you :)

You known, after doing book reports with students (who probably never read a book in their lives) today at work, most stuff on the internet seems pleasantly literate ;-)

Your icon really makes me want to watch Doctor Who...but I'll have to tide myself over with Tatort until the laptop is repaired.
