Wednesday

Hiya peeps!

I’ve decided to stop with the random posts (although I shall leave them up for future reference) and get down to some serious blogging.

I will start with things I cannot understand. If you do, or you agree with me and don’t, please feel free to comment.

Things I really don’t understand:

  • The point in promoting BLP (when are we going to look back and say “I should’ve used BLP there’? Seriously?)
  • Why schools insist on calling our school blogs ‘Learning Journals’. It’s so posh and unneeded it makes me want to retch.
  • Why Justin Bieber is so popular
  • Why Jedward are so popular
  • Why people insist One Direction are gay
  • Howcome some boys are really obssessed with sex
  • Why girls are so bitchy
  • Exactly why Twilight is so popular (Put it this way: I thought Edward Cullen was fit until I found out he was a vampire. That was the big turn-off for me)

Do help me clear these things up. It would make my day.

See ya 😉

Useless Literature Fact #1

In the Sherlock Holmes series, there are 23 exclaimations, 11 of them belonging to Dr. Watson. Holmes himself exclaims 6 times. There is a passage of text where it is not sure who exclaims:

So he sat as I dropped off to sleep, and so he sat when a sudden exclamation caused me to wake up, and I found the summer sun shining into the apartment. The pipe was still between his lips, the smoke still curled upward, and the room was full of a dense tobacco haze, but nothing remained of the heap of shag which I had seen upon the previous night. The Man with the Twisted Lip, 1891
