I knew it.

Grammar God!
You are a GRAMMAR GOD!

If your mission in life is not already to
preserve the English tongue, it should be.
Congratulations and thank you!

How grammatically sound are you?
brought to you by Quizilla

This is coming from the weird little girl who, in kindergarten music class, when having to sing the obligatory folk songs that children of the 70s have to sing in school (think "Take Me Home, Country Roads" by John Denver), would cry if she had to sing a line that had bad grammar--especially double negatives. Those really used to upset me. The teacher would try to soothe me, saying, "It's just a song," but I was inconsolable.

Via Cindy and AKMA, also grammar gods.


which groupmember are you?

I'm a grammar god?

That's what it said... Whoa. Which means there were some seriously lucky guesses from me, I think. My brain has sludgified so much since HS/college that I know I didn't really know all of those! Witness my writing here, for example. *lol*

You, on the other hand. You rule. :) That's so cute--Little Clancy and her grammar sensitivity. I would have begged to be your friend in kindergarten. That poor teacher wouldn't know what to do. :D


Git Along, Little Dogies

LOL! I would have been your friend for sure, Chris. I was just happy when people wanted to be my friend for a reason other than the fact that they wanted to copy my homework. You know, I was a much more sensitive and sentimental child than I am an adult (before this cruel world crushed my gentle little spirit, or rather before I decided I couldn't beat the cruel world, so I joined it). I'm reminded of another song that we had to sing that made me cry: "Git Along, Little Dogies." I'd sob when we'd get to this part, because I couldn't stand the violence:

Early in the springtime we round up the dogies

Mark 'em and brand 'em and bob off their tails

Round up the horses, load up the chuck wagon

Then throw the little dogies out on the long trail

My parents got mad on my behalf and wrote to the school. I think they ended up having to pull the song from the rotation. :)

I'm on a roll...

Thinking of songs we used to have to sing in school:

(I Got Spurs That) Jingle Jangle Jingle

John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt

High Hopes

Heh. Could have been worse, C

Heh. Could have been worse, Clancy. You could have had my vaguely hippie-ish 4th grade music teacher, and thus still shudder at One Tin Soldier.


What power

To be able to make a big group of little kids sing whatever songs you want them to sing. I once knew an elementary school music teacher who was tempted to have her kids sing "Every Sperm Is Sacred," heh.
