    A 7th grade student I taught many years ago gave a book report and listed among the characters Lance Alot.

    No! They are very dangerous! See the example with the baby. :D

    That whole blog is hilarious. Make sure you read the one about how a fish nearly ruined her life.

    Thanks for posting the apostrophe link, english is my second language and I know I haven't been using the possessive form correctly with plurals.

    I hope someday she does a post on "free reign," another one of my pet peeves. I'll bet she could have a lot of fun with that one.

    ETA: Oh, and also "pour over" for "pore over." That's a recent one that's really been getting on my nerves.
