About Me

My photo

A man of many words. Profane, profound, loyal to a fault and a right rat bastard. I love the finer things in life: expensive cigars, cheap women and all the salted, cured meats I can eat. A friend to dogs, lover of humanity and despiser of people. If I were King the world would be a better place, because, well...I would be King! Oh, and I like ice cream.

Peace Corps Blogs

I'm really getting into this Peace Corps thing. It turns out there is a website in which you can link to blogs of what shall hereinafter be referred to as PCVs (Peace Corps Volunteers).

I haven't read them all. There must be hundreds. But, the level of grammar in the ones I HAVE read is distressing. You know, I like text messaging. But, you shouldn't write in a blog or other written communication they same way you text. In fact, you should not write in the same way as you talk or think.

I mean, LOL u r so stoopid if u do.

Like scratching a blackboard with ur fingernails.

Hi Miguel - can you believe my boss actually wanted to allow students to write reports using text messaging language and he was SERIOUS!!!!
