March 30th is...

National no improper use of "like" day!

That can also extend to include no slang uses of "all", "yeah", or just "ya' know"s in general.  I was aware of this plague before I started to go to school, but that just reinforced my feelings about it.  As an Author, I am seriously peeved.

So, if you ever have time, please forward this blog post to all emails in your address book, with the following message: "I pledge to withhold from all manners of poor English for a single day, according to national no improper use of 'like' day, begun by Josephos Rex of The Author's Files."  If you pledge something, that'll automatically ignite anyone's interest.
