I swear, little ones, there really is a difference between weary and wary. Almost every time you use weary you actually mean wary. Promise, it makes a difference.

I can usually tell when it's an accident, but sometimes you can also tell they just didn't know. Pulls me right out of the story LOL!

(and I totally know YOU know!!*hugs*)

don't be less judgy!!! If we had to be perfect in order to be judgy, then life would be no fun.

I like all my friends to be judgy about dumb things and tolerant about what's important. ;)

I hate to say it but I'm soooo picky when it comes to grammar. It really irritates me, but then I also do it for my job. I kind of felt bad because I had this one story I was working on today and the writer had used the wrong term for something. I emailed and told them and they sounded a little put-out that I'd corrected them. They'd been using it wrong for years. I don't do it if it's fanfiction, unless the writer's a good friend and they know what I'm like, but yeah, I kind of have to do it to a pro writer because it's my job. (I'm a sub-editor)

I'm terrible at grammar, but not eye-bleed bad--I hope. I can't imagine being put-out about being corrected. How do you learn, otherwise? It's not like being told your story is a steaming pile of crap, right? Everything I know comes from folks gently correcting me. :D

hehe

also viscous/vicious and defiantly/definitely.

My favorite though is when people say something like, "but I might be a little bias," because, unless you're a seamstress, bias is not an adjective, and I get much pleasure imagining smoochy little biases running around (I don't know why they're cute in my head. It's the "little" descriptor, probably)

Heeeee!! I do like the way your mind works! Now *I* see the frisky little biases too! :)

I blame spell-check and auto-correct for a lot of these, especially "defiantly/definitely," because I'm pretty sure that one's not just a case of the typo also being a word. You type "definatly" and right-click on the red squiggles; the first word it suggests is "defiantly," and both uncertain writers and, presumably, auto-correct, just go with the first one.

P.S. Oddly enough, being weary can make you wary, and being wary can make you weary. :)

This is true, and if it were earlier in the evening and my brain was still functioning I would come up with something clever to add, but sadly, nah. ;D
