Because Pitbulls need love too.

Text 21 Oct #reviewsdaytuesday

So, I don’t know if you guys knew this, but grad school takes a lot of time.  And by a lot of time, I mean when my parents went on a trip I barely found the extra time in my day to clean the litter boxes.  So my leisure reading time has been exactly… the 15 minute break I get at work when my shift is more than four hours.  So, 15 minutes every other Wednesday and every other Saturday.
It’s kind of the worst.

But yesterday I said, “Nope, I checked out these books from the library, and I have most of my work for the week done, so I’M SITTING DOWN AND JUST READING A WHOLE BOOK.”

And I did.
And it was wonderful.
I love Neil Gaiman’s writing style, and the story was wonderful.  This was one of those books that I knew nothing about; I’d heard about it, of course, and knew it was by Neil, but that was all.
This book was an absolute pleasure.  I didn’t get scared - still searching for a book to do that this year - but I was concerned at times.
The ideas about childhood and adulthood really resonate me, at a time in my life when I’ve technically been an adult for 4 years, but I still think of other people as “real adults”.
But on top of all of this, I think my favorite thing was the farmhouse.  I’m nostalgic - for a bathtub, filled with water from the kettle, having soup in the bath (which is remarkable, because I don’t like soup), finding a kitten, fresh meat pie, the moon lighting the stairs….  everything about the property made me content, even as I sat at my desk, surrounded by textbooks and the approach of due dates.

whisperedgalaxies said: Re: Swearing in America We don't have the most variation in our swearing, whereas a lot of other languages have swears that capture more levels of intensity that just doesn't translate. The interesting thing about "fuck" though is it is just so flexible (in american dialects). You can use it as nearly every part of speech. As a result, however, we don't use much else. As a reader from America, the use of swears in American Gods sounded very natural to me. -A linguistics major




I agree. The glory of fuck is all the things you can do with it and all the things it can do. It’s an unbefuckinglievably useful swear word (used just there as an expletive infixation). 

Except that “unbefuckinglievably” is actually is actually a really unusual form of that particular infix—to such an extent, that most English speakers would think it was wrong if they heard it said out loud.  The version usually heard is “unfuckingbelievably.”  There are a bunch of theories why this is (morpheme boundaries, prosody, stress patterns), but whatever rule it follows does seem to actually be pretty strict.

Seriously.  Say the first out loud.  It just doesn’t work.

Well, lots of people use it. Here are the Wiktionary citations for Unbefuckinglievable and its variants. 

Fuck, I love the internet sometimes. Goodnight.

The best part is, this post actually does something, it offers support, unlike one of those useless “reblog if you care” posts.

Exactly. Which is why I’ll reblog this one.
