Get a job in the hospitality industry -- the hotel I work at feeds me everyday for free. I save a lot on groceries, I think, but sometimes that means I have absolutely no food in the house for weeks and end up eating out way too much when I'm not at work.
I had a delicious bowl of ramen for breakfast/lunch and, even though that was only 3 hours ago, now I'm eating a huge plate of chilli con carne salad 'cause it's one of the better things my work makes for dinner and if I don't eat it now I'll miss out. I'm gonna be sooo full for the next 5 hours, thank god I work in a back office and can unbutton my pants.
I definitely doubt it. I have to say, though, that it truly is a relief that my commitment to the highest possible standards for grammar and punctuation are shared by the majority of the people on this board. Nothing rankles me more than being obliged to take the time to read something written by someone who couldn't be even be bothered to put a capital letter at the beginning of their sentence. Lack of punctuation, LOL-speak, run-on sentences cobbled together with improperly used ellipses... All of these things fill me with rage. But nothing gets to me as much as an indifference to proper capitalization.
Greetings, I am eager to engage you in linguistic debate. It appears that you favor prescriptive grammar over descriptive grammar, an opinion I consider most ill-informed.
To start, I shall attempt to make it clear what I mean by prescriptive grammar as opposed to other types. A prescriptive grammar is a set of rules detailing how someone (whoever made those rules) thinks a language should be used, whereas a descriptive grammar is simply a codification of how a language is actually used by its speakers. In the context of this debate, descriptive grammar is an acceptable and less harmful alternative to prescriptive grammar; however, I should not be construed to be arguing expressly for it.
My argument is comprised of two stages: First, that prescriptive grammar is largely unnecessary in modern times, and second, that it is harmful to children, and especially to minorities. These conditions (assuming I fulfill my burden in demonstrating them) should be sufficient to make the case that prescriptive grammar does more harm than good.
This is how all newbs should respond to us ragging on their lack of punctuation and failure to find their shift keys.
Looks like there are placeholder pages set up for Justice and Mac DeMarco. Substituting other random artists gives a "page not found" response. Not sure if that really means anything, but seems worth pointing out.
Their names also appear under the Lineup heading on the "This Page Does Not Exist" page. I'm not sure how the rest of that list compares to the announced lineup so far, but someone might take a look.
Looks like there's also placeholder pages for Brandi Carlile, Bryan Adams, Dada Life, Mother Mother and Wild Feathers. Seems like we might be in for a decent amount of adds soon.
Oh, and Banks too!

Yeah, sorry, I realized that wasn't a very reassuring post. But honestly, if it doesn't arrive by Tuesday I would see about getting it switched to will call 'cause with Victoria Day in the mix there's a good chance it won't get here before we leave.
Hey Canadians. About how long does it take for a wristband-sized envelope to get from Calgary to Seattle? Wompwomp mailed me mine last monday and it had yet to arrive. Only a few more business days left and I'm contemplating panicking.
Did he just send it via regular mail or did he at least use xpress post or something with a tracking number? Ideally, province to province shouldn't be more than 3 - 5 days and to the US about 7 days. But realistically, regular mail can take up to a couple weeks from Canada to US and domestic it can take up to 10 business days. And of course there's always the worry with regular, untraceable mail that it just got lost.
Speaking of Rifflandia, who's going? I might grab the $125 pass now before the lineup comes out just so I'm committed.
I got the time off approved last week so I'm committed now. Was also thinking of grabbing a pass while it's still only $125 but it think that might need to wait a little now - do you know when that deal ends?
