Spelling and Grammer

Haaaaaahaaahaaaa!! I just got an e mail from an archivist who read my blog, apparently the reason I don’t get interviews is because my spelling and grammer is awful. I think I know what I am dealing with now (am very afraid). Love the constructive criticism though! I will try and improve my spelling and grammer in the future (nightmares of latin exams are coming back to haunt me). Genetive or ablative? Infinitive or 1st person singular? Aaaaaaaaaaaaa!! I  heard a story on radio 4 yesterday about a woman who was so obsessed with grammer she would roam the streets in the night, correcting peoples mistakes on shop signs etc… She fell off her ladder while correcting one of these mistakes and went into a coma. In her coma everything was perfect – every apostrophe was in place ans she hated it so much it snapped her out of her coma!! Thats all I have to say about that.

    Are you sure the woman wasn’t in a comma instead? 🙂
