STOP THAT RIGHT NOW!!!! There is absolutely NOTHING fun or silly about GRAMMER!!! You guys can transfer this conversation to the "Can't get a date because I correct the English of all my suiters" thread.

:lol:

I'm sooo going to the library after work to check out Grammar in Use... then I'll come back later, with new impressive skills allowing me to correct the grammer of all my suiters...and THEN I'll become the new doyenne (definition a...okay fine, and B ) of that can't get a date thread you mention. :ph34r::lol:

Oh bless - our yeti is going to Patti's!!!! (he's going to love it there - and I know Patti's hubby aka packrat can lend him some old clothes -he's running low - shell bikini doesn't cut it in this weather anymore.

Yep, you're right...the verb "hit" here is in the simple past tense, and is also in the passive voice. This combination is a pain in the @ss to teach; actually, the passive voice generally is confusing when modifying. Sentences are active when the subject performs an action. They are passive when the subject receives an action or is the result if an action. The passive is used when we are unsure of the subject of a verb, when the subject is obvious or when it is not important:

This house was built in 1930.

My mail is delivered at noon.

It is also used when you want to sound formal or impersonal (announcements, rules, signs)...All passengers are asked to remain seated, All fees must be paid at registration, etc.

Like Janet and her algebra-solving, I'm getting a thrill thoughout my body as I explain... :lol:

:lol::lol:

I thoroughly enjoyed that!! :ph34r: (am I a geek?)

How about the batter?

Yes indeed - did it coat the fish? ....was it wheat flour or rice?? :blink:

It's also good for children who are avoiding getting in trouble -- "The lamp was broken." "The milk was spilled." See, with kids, no one ever actually does the deed. We have someone named "not me" living in our house .... any time I ask the kids who did something, all six of them will answer, "not me". I've yet to see this seventh child and am thankful that not much food is eaten by him.

:lol: Excellent !!

I must add that I am revelling in a culinary success !!! ...my second foray into the world of the slow cooker crockpot.

I have successfully made a plum polenta cake!!!!!!!!!!

...oh the excitement!!!!.....and who knew about polenta?? :blink: (I didn't :lol: )

Yes--he has arrived (thanks Amanda.... :unsure: )

He is wearing an old flannel shirt of Mark's--it's pretty cold and windy here today. The bikini is in the wash--it really needed a good cleaning--as did the old guy himself...

Where is the giant hot tub when ya need it???? He's practically busting out of the shower :lol:

Ok--he's good here for the week, after that I'll put him on a bus....who can take him then? Nikki--if you want him, we can get him to the airport. ;) Better get out and stock up on food--he gets grumpy when he gets hungry :o

Whatever you do, don't send him down here! My house is so tiny, I don't think he'd fit- especially with the Christmas tree up. :rolleyes:

BTW, how are everyone's pets? Lilo barfed in her crate last night- too much turkey? I was cleaning up dog puke at midnight. Maybe it's not the pet curse, but the never-ending-500th-post-body-fluids curse! <_<

Emily (you poor confused silly)

As you're reading, hit "quote" on any posts you want to comment on--the "quote" box will turn red, and just continue on hitting "quote" until you get to the end of the thread--then hit "add

I didn't know this either!!!!!!!!! So excited!

I have no clue. In honors English class in middle school I had a note card taped in the front of my notebook that listed what a subject, verb, adverb, noun, pronoun, direct object, and an indirect object were. Ask me to edit your paper for problems and I'm fine. Ask me to diagram a sentence and I'd rather die.

I used to like that but I HATE teaching grammar!

Yep, that's passive. In addition to the reasons Emily gave for the existence of passive, you can add -- so that English teachers can tell you to change it to the active voice because passive voice makes for a boring paper since there is no one doing any of the action.

It's also good for children who are avoiding getting in trouble -- "The lamp was broken." "The milk was spilled." See, with kids, no one ever actually does the deed. We have someone named "not me" living in our house .... any time I ask the kids who did something, all six of them will answer, "not me". I've yet to see this seventh child and am thankful that not much food is eaten by him.

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: The ball was thrown in the house!

Yes, my mom occasionally points out that I've always been headstrong and sassy

Which is just how we like you!!!!!!!!!!

Ps-I set the Yeti on the train to visit with Patti today. He was hoping to visit more friends in the states and canada. Anyone offering him a place to lay his head?

I'd be honored if he'd like to meet Mass%$@#s!

Sorry about Lilo :(

Actually, we took Allo to the vet on Saturday...he's having a little trouble adjusting to the new house (we think) and peeing in inappropriate places :angry:

They did testing, including an x-ray, and he has a pretty bad case of arthritis in his back. It was obvious even to us when we saw the x-ray.

The vet couldn't believe he was 16, though! The first thing he said to us was--he's not really 16, is he?

So, we've added litter boxes upstairs to make it easier for him. :)

I've got a cozy extra room here in CA, how does he feel about dingos?

I must add that I am revelling in a culinary success !!! ...my second foray into the world of the slow cooker crockpot.

I have successfully made a plum polenta cake!!!!!!!!!!

...oh the excitement!!!!.....and who knew about polenta??

I am quite fond of polenta. However, having trouble wrapping my dingo-brain around polenta with plums. :huh: What kind of plums? REal plums, off a tree? or canned plums, that you mash up? :lol: Do plums come in cans, in the US? has anyone ever seen that? In my life there has never been a plum desert.

:blink:

how very sad. :lol:

BTW, how are everyone's pets? Lilo barfed in her crate last night- too much turkey? I was cleaning up dog puke at midnight. Maybe it's not the pet curse, but the never-ending-500th-post-body-fluids curse! <_<

Funny you should ask. Yesterday, there were TWO spots/drops/desposits of poop in the living room carpet. :huh: I nearly barfed (I know, more fluids to clean!).....I think Stinker carried one of the "lumps" in on her foot, or something......and the other one was just liquid......oh dear gaaaaaaaaaaawd........that she crapped in the house.

So, just four or five weeks after last carpet shampooing, I'll be renting the shampooer again.

HARRUMPHFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I could take him for the week, but he may catch Gus's yeast thing. Can you IMAGINE a yeti full of yeast?!....I wonder if he'd rise?...

oh good gawd, a yeasty-yeti..........that can only be trouble............ :huh:

OMG- Allo is 16????? That's wild- he looks just like my first kitty- Popcorn. She was gray and white with a little half mustache and she lived to 18. The day before she went to kitty heaven she jumped up on the dining table and tried to steal the Christmas turkey. BEST kitty ever! I used to throw her over my shoulder and walk around the house with her purring!

Oh, GAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWD is right....TOO MUCH BODILY FLUID AROUND HERE!! Sarah's dog barf, Susie's dog diarrhea, my dog runny, yeasty earwax...Patti, Allo's remaining fluid free, isn't he? It's only the dogs. Janet, any canine puke or poop your way?

oh good gawd, a yeasty-yeti..........that can only be trouble............ :huh:

Whoa! Splendid alliteration, Susie! Very Dr. Seuss-ish. That could well be a character in one of the great master's lesser known collections....The Yeasty Yeti with the wocket in his pocket... :lol:

Okay, listen, guys...I've measured his inseam twice. Believe me, we do not want that beast ingesting ANY little blue pills... :o

Not that I've had to clean up. The boarding kennel owner tells me that she peed in her kennel when we boarded her over Thanksgiving. That's why we pay them the big bucks - to clean up her dog wee. I'm not sure why she does that. We don't have any problems at home. I wonder if it's because the inside kennel (concrete floor) looks just like the outside dog run (concrete floor) so to her the whole place is a big dog toilet!

You know, if the Yeti is yeasty, he can't go near Tom. If the Yeti turns yellow (as in a yellow yeasty Yeti), either he or Tom should probably leave the country. If you recall from Jess' original post, Tom was allergic to all three.

How wild was that Grey Cup win on Sunday night? Amazing...down to the last minute...Oh, right. I'm speaking to Americans....Alex, did you watch the game?

:D:D

Yeah, definitely! We had my dad and brother over for a mini Grey Cup party. Although I have to embarrassingly admit that I fell asleep during the middle part. Not bored, just tired. -_- I made Earl Grey tea for the occasion :ph34r: (although I know it is a different Earl Grey).

I do prefer the CFL to the NFL, but college beats both for me.

Ok--he's good here for the week, after that I'll put him on a bus....who can take him then?

Well .. . .. .despite being pretty tall & having quite a reach, I *AM* having some trouble w/ the top area of my patio storage closet. It's 9 or 10 feet up!!

He could be quite handy for a few days.

And, we DO have a giant hot tub & Olympic-size pool here! (As long as I lend him my access fob, no one will mistake him for an unshaven & homeless former pro wrestler. We surely don't want a repeat of the Haystacks Calhoun incident!! <don't ask> )

;)

Whatever you do, don't send him down here! My house is so tiny, I don't think he'd fit- especially with the Christmas tree up. :rolleyes:

Speaking of christmas trees and UP .. . . .. .across the street someone did something I'd heard of but never seen. <giggle giggle> There are some sort of newly-built fancypants lofts w/ floor-to-ceiling windows & I'm looking at an upside-down christmas tree hung from the ceiling!!! :blink::lol::D

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: The ball was thrown in the house!

:lol:

. .. Can you IMAGINE a yeti full of yeast?!....I wonder if he'd rise?...

Oh!! Minds out of respective gutters, people!! :o:o<_<

How many gutters are we talkin'?

Silly me had imagined one shared community gutter in these situations.

And do y'all truly believe a mate-less Yeti needs yeast (or for that matter, Chuck "The Fluffer" Norris) when spending nights in the domiciles of any of this delightful delectable bunch of sillies? <me excluded thank you> <oh King Richard too>

And to toss in a fun personal note - I had to get a new car stereo & Fry's had an awesome one for only $57 (!!) which plays C.D-R/RW mp3s!!!!!!

I just bumped into a single disc containing a noteworthy variety - Patsy Cline :o, Led Zeppelin ;), Jimmy Cliff ^_^, Sinatra B), Goodbye Yellow Slick Toad errrrr Brick Road album, 2 versions of Ave Maria (Charlotte Church & Jewel), an Oakland funk band, 2 bands I used to play w/ (3rd wave ska & Motown cover) etc . . .. .
