Who kicked who's ass?
While I continue to kick ass in my SCS class, I fail to kick ass in my Math and CS classes. I have midterms tomorrow in both Math and CS, for which I am currently unprepared. Fortunately, my parents sent me cookies.
Also, I'd like to complain to the people who made certain English grammar rules. Who came up with this shit:
|contraction with 'to be'||possessive|
This makes no sense at all. If we followed the general rule of possession and added an apostrophe s to the end of the noun, only third person singular pronouns would be the same as their respective contraction with 08to be09. But this would not be confusing because you would know the meaning from context. 08Its09 and 08it09s09 are already homophones, and we can understand the difference. Why should it be any different in writing?
I propose a new, more reasonable spelling for possessive proper nouns: me's, you's, him's, her's, it's, who's, our's, and them's.
[Actually, I don't agree with the above proposition. I had some angst about my impending midterms and wanted to complain about something, rather being being angry at myself for procrastinating.]
