I laughed so hard at this.
so, my primary non-work laptop had several Very Bad Things happen to it in the middle of RP last night, and is probably not gonna be WoW-capable for awhile. I’m installing it on my big clunky desktop now, so I should be back soonish.
sorry to lightandwinged and shithowdy (and Kemek, if he has a tumblr!) for plot getting interrupted!
WE WERE WORRIED but I’m glad everything is okay!
you a bitch
It’s called copula deletion, or zero copula. Many languages and dialects, including Ancient Greek and Russian, delete the copula (the verb to be) when the context is obvious.
So an utterance like “you a bitch” in AAVE is not an example of a misused you, but an example of a sentence that deletes the copular verb (are), which is a perfectly valid thing to do in that dialect, just as deleting an /r/ after a vowel is a perfectly valid thing to do in an upper-class British dialect.
Aside from looking at houses, a really annoying thing happened this weekend.
I wasn’t sure what I was expecting when these two got on twitter, but certainly not this.

They’re all so FUCKING GORGEOUS
“She certainly is a great queen, and were she only a Catholic she would be our dearly beloved. Just look how well she governs; she is only a woman, only mistress of half an island, and yet she makes herself feared by Spain, by France, by the Empire, by all.”

I don’t even think people talked about the End Times happening when a tornado back in my former town in TN scored a direct hit on a Baptist university campus…
This guy posts “prayers” at the end of every day, like that’s his way of writing a status update—writing it as a prayer. It’s really weird and uncomfortable and I pretty much only have him added because it would be awkward not to.
…which, when you think about it, is a fair summary of Facebook as a whole.
Yes, person on Facebook feed. Tornadoes, which have literally been happening for all of recorded history, are a sign of the end of the world. It’s not like they happen all the time or anything. They must mean the world is ending because they’re happening near you. Obviously.
My phone’s weather service was saying a few days ago that it was going to rain today but now it’s just telling me it’s going to be cloudy all night.
update: it just suddenly got swimmingly humid and there’s now thunder.
Mildly less disappointed.
EDIT: WE HAVE RAIN thank you jesus
There are now tornado warnings. This escalated quickly.
This is what happens when you complain about the weather.
