More proof that grammar is important, from a handwritten ad my co-worker showed me:

We are looking for a "piano teacher" for our "son", please apply...

Someone obviously misunderstood what quotation marks are for. *facepalm*

Holy mother of... Checking my email this morning revealed an absolutely unexpected surprise: a complete stranger turned one of my drabbles into a !!! Didn't even tell me (there's a blanket permission for transformative works on my AO3 profile), just did it. There might have been dolphin noises on my part. *g*

@vamp Our brains are treacherous bastards sometimes! I've often wanted a refund for mine...

Do I need to cut for Little Women spoilers? 

@hit_the_books @vamp They do what now? I mean, I heard of it, but is that really normal now? They really have no concept of privacy. Good thing I'm not planning to go back to the US any time soon...

@ToonLink <3 I'll keep an eye on my bank account, but if I can continue to pay half it should be okay. And having nice nails means fewer hangnails because I don't pick at them.

I might accidentally have turned into a woman who Gets Her Nails Done. Thing is, manicures are incredibly expensive here in Switzerland (as are most things, lbr), but I found a place where you pay half if you go to the apprentice.
So I went before Christmas for shellac nail polish, y'know, and then again before my bday - and last week, I broke 2 nails, so she fixed them yesterday. They look almost real! And I already set a next appointment, so I guess this is a Thing I do now. Weird! :)

Remember what I said yesterday about the annoying Inspector Mallory on Father Brown? As if they heard me, the last episode of the series brings back BOTH previous inspectors - and they're both happy to include and listen to Father Brown. In your face, Mallory! I feel rather vindicated. :D

@vamp yep, absolutely, don't tag stuff and don't follow people, then the danger goes down drastically.

@demitas I'll try for sure - for now I'm just happy that I have that backup file!

@demitas Okay, so I discovered the tags in the html code of the links. Maybe I'll find a way to display them somehow that doesn't require me to type them out by hand...

@demitas Unfortunately there are more than 1600 bookmarks... *facepalm* I'm trying an old WP plugin, maybe that works.

@demitas I just did a backup - unfortunately despite their promises, their export doesn't include the tags (which I'd always carefully maintained), so it'll be a fun (for a certain value of fun) task to figure out which fandoms/pairings the recs are for... :) Thank you!

@demitas oooh, i just tried a few more times and got in! Thankfully I created the site when I was still horrible at passwords, so it was easy to guess... lol
