Ommmggggg... I could rant for hours about the fact that sentence structure is a pain in my arse, but I won't.  Instead I'm just going to sit here and laud Sandy as being a hero, and my savior, and just... awesome shit. Seriously, praise her.   So here's a run down of the conlang shit I've been doing this week for Hurstikan.  This is still very much a work in progress, but if any of the conlangers/lang-peeps want to go point out "HAY UR DOIN IT WRONG" about something, please do.  I've already managed to completely miscomprehend Nominative case.  XD
A very long post about fictional grammar )

Also, why did I not have a conlang tag before now? utter failure.

Two days in a row. Fun.

The Kid has been throwing parties again. 

This time, his mother knows about them. Which is, I suppose, an improvement of sorts.  It does not stop the fact that she's allowing him to throw these backyard "raves" on weeknights.  Nor does it negate that she's allowing her fourteen-year-old to have over twenty-something-year-old "friends" with alcohol involved.  I suppose I can understand the  "he's going to do it anyway, it may as well go on under my roof" philosophy. Except that that philosophy should be tempered with "under supervision," of which there was none.  Save the drunk twenty-somethings. Because they're good examples.

Apparently, I am also the only person in the house who has a problem with this.  I wouldn't, actually, if they didn't sit outside my bedroom door yammering at two-thirty in the gorram morning.  Once was a simple mistake. This time, I said something.  When I get home from work, I'm taking it up with him and his mother again, in a more reasonable fashion.

I really don't mind this going on during the weekends, but good gods, I have to work during the week. =.=


The things that make you unique have more to do with the way you respond to life than they do with whatever you’re doing outwardly. You may not realize it but it’s your feelings and your ability to care that generates every bit of goodness that comes to you. Knowing this may make it easier for you to understand that you will only feel qualified for what you’re about to take on when you erase any thought that says you might not be good enough. The extent to which you are able to recognize and value your self will be what determines how things go from here.

Needing a little bit of research help concerning modern day British aristocracy.  I've done some on my own, but I'm a wee bit confused and if there's anyone on my friends list who wouldn't mind answering a few questions I'd be much obliged.  It isn't anything massively important, just for an in-the-works fic.
