It really IRRITATES me when people do not use proper grammar. It does not AGGRAVATE me. Do you understand that? IRRITATE means “to annoy,” and AGGRAVATE means “to add to.” So, if you’re already IRRITATING me with your abominable speech and your insistence on smoking a cigar in my living room, your saying, “Hey buddy boy, don’t get so AGGRAVATED; I’ll open a window,” will only AGGRAVATE the situation.
I can’t even deal with “LAY” and “LIE” right now. I’ll smash something. I know it.

McSweeney’s is glorious. Things like CHANGES TO THE HOTEL CALIFORNIA, MADE IN RESPONSE TO MR. HENLEY’S RECENT COMPLAINT.
Time zips past. As I’d forgotten about it for such a while, I have ever so much more to read. *joy*
