Total Eclipse

I'm going to see Eclipse tonight. They're my favorite a capella group. They're so good. If anyone else wants to come, he should. Tickets are available at SmithsTix. You should go to Smith's and buy one. They're $7-10, and that's totally worth it. You will gain a testimony of them as I have.

In other news, I'm going to see Wicked next week for $45. Such a steal. It's in Colorado. I hope you're all terribly jealous.

I like that you said if anyone wants to go, HE should. instead of YOU should... you totally pay attention to the literal meaning of phrases.

I do that to. Like, the phrase, "needless to say."

I once wrote "needless to say, although I choose to say it anyway" because I didn't just use the phrase like it was nothing, I actually knew what it meant, which was that there was no need to say what I was about to say.

Anyway, enough about me. I just wanted to point out that I think that awesome that you write the way you do. It keeps me interested.

hum. now that I think about it, maybe you don't know what you're talking about.

"if anyone wants to come, then he should"... well, really, who is he? why is the one that should go, if anyone wants to go at all?

The "he," just so you know, is the "anyone." In prescriptivist grammar, the "one" in anyone is singular, so one can't properly say "they." It was more or less arbitrarily decided long ago that the "one" would be referred to as "he," not because it refers to a male, but just for the sake of pronoun agreement. Current linguistic trends, spurred decades ago by the feminist movement, favor either "they," treated as a singular (since that's the trend in spoken English already), or the clunkier "he or she.". I've never been one to follow trends, however, and have made a conscientious decision to let my language be dictated by a bunch of dead scholars of Latin rather than by the lazy linguistic trends of the masses or the political contrivances of special interest groups' over-reaching agendas. And yes, I know what I'm talking about.
