Do you really want a punctuation lesson?

Delighted to oblige, my friend. It's "Goth's eyeliner" (the eyeliner belonging to Goth) unless it's the eyeliner shared by many goths, in which case it would be "the goths' eyeliner".

Stab me with the eyeliner now, please.

(I bore myself with this stuff, I can't help being pedantic. It seriously backfires at work too, as everyone gives me stuff to proofread.)


If it was just 1 Goth, but not Spanish Goth, a Goth we didn't know.
Which one would it be then?


I suspect you're taking the piss out of an old lady, now...


If it belongs to one person (whether or not we know them) the apostrophe goes before the "s". If it belongs to many people, it goes after the "s". The exception to this rule is words like "children" and "people" which are a plural, so it would be "the children's dog" or "the people's champion". The one that drives me CRAZY when I see it on signs is "men" - the apostrophe goes before the "s" as men is plural. However I far too often see signs saying "Mens' Clothing" and the like.


Delboys Daughter

I'm sure there's medicine for that you know ;)


Cat? Sweetie?

Count to ten... and breathe!


I heart Cat.


Oh Cat, I approve! I was going to leap in and be all pedantic but you did it for me.

And bedshaped, I think you are getting two rules mixed up. There's the plural rule, and the possession rule. The apostrophe is used to denote possession, but whether it appears before or after the S is nothing to do with what belongs to who: it's all about plurals, or more specifically, it's about whether the word would have ended with an S already, even before there was any possession to think about. Hence Jesus' hands are kind hands...


Oh. I said Cat had done it for me, then proceeded to do it anyway. Doh.


P.S. As to the song itself... it's very rude! Puts my occasional mention of mammary glands into the shade... and almost makes me blush. But not quite. I'm a hard woman to redden. Hmm.


Clare, thanks for confusing me.
If I gave a toss then I'd be cautious about everything I posted, so it's a probably a good job that I don't.
Or maybe it isn't.
I know I am.

Diflucan Flucanazole medication is an antifungal agent used to treat infections in certain areas of the body caused by yeast and yeast-like organisms. Generic Diflucan works best when the amount of medicine in your body is kept at a constant level. Do this by taking the medication at evenly spaced intervals. Take as directed since different conditions require different methods of use. This drug is usually taken once daily. Another dosing method involves taking the drug for one week per month until treatment is completed. Continue to take this medication until the full prescribed amount is finished even if symptoms disappear after a few days. Stopping the medication too early may allow the yeast to continue to grow resulting in a relapse of the infection. Order generic diflucan online

    If you love Big Blogger in an almost entirely non-physical way then be a good sort and whack one of these attractive Big Blogger-themed thingies into your sidebar.

    Our Links

    Huge thanks go to Lucy Pepper for her wonderful illustrations.

    Plus, even though he's not blogging anymore, let's remember Watski for coming up with this godawful idea in the first place.

    AND, if you've got 300 years spare time on your hands you could use it to re-read the whole of the original 2005 Big Blogger event. Go on, I dare you.

    The only other place we should really link to is the official BIG BROTHER website. After all, they're the ones who bought the rights to the concept in the first place; we're just adjusting it for our own purposes. I'm sure they'll understand.

    So if you want intellectual stimulation and laughs-a-plenty, stay right where you are. However, if you want boredom, drudgery and maybe some tits and arse, go there instead.

    I know where I'm going. Okay, see you later...

    The idea may not be original but everything else on here is of our own making and 100% original. So don't go borrowing unless A) you link back to us, or B) you ask us really really nicely beforehand.
