A myriad is 10,000 correct? How was she using it?

Myriad bottles of wine were drunk (correct).

A myriad of bottles of wine were consumed (wrong).

Hmmm. I see "a myriad of" quite often in my readings. I just looked at good old Merriam-Webster (M-W via iWord, mind you) and it appears they have added a footnote on the adjective vs noun debate.

Main Entry: 1myr·i·ad
Pronunciation: \ˈmir-ē-əd\
Function: noun
Etymology: Greek myriad-, myrias, from myrioi countless, ten thousand
Date: 1555
1 : ten thousand 2 : a number
usage Recent criticism of the use of myriad as a noun, both in the plural form myriads and in the phrase a myriad of, seems to reflect a mistaken belief that the word was originally and is still properly only an adjective. As the entries here show, however, the noun is in fact the older form, dating to the 16th century. The noun myriad has appeared in the works of such writers as Milton (plural myriads) and Thoreau (a myriad of), and it continues to occur frequently in reputable English. There is no reason to avoid it.

* do note I still see why 'a great number of bottles of wine were consumed' needs an edit. Just speaking of the great noun/adj debate

about 18 months ago, i posted about tripping and falling on my left arm so hard that it was severely bruised for a few months.

guess which idiot did it again last night???



unfortunately, i also landed on the shopping bag full of empty wine bottles to go back to recycling and i have bruise marks from just below my shoulder ALL the way down to my ankle.

i'm so ticked off at myself for this!

Weren't you questioned after the previous fall? Let's hope that does not happen again if you need to be checked.

You know the old exercise where one person whispers a sentence in another's ear, and they whisper it to the next... so on and so forth? When the last person is reached, the original sentence/statement has been altered. That is what I see happening when I read stories online. So many people are blogging or writing about the same topic. Page after page, and the story is slightly altered each time until it eventually becomes some what unrecognizable.

Either that or it is 6 pages of the same story copy and pasted under different sites/publications and authors.

^ On the not knowing much about the generations before you note... I laughed my butt off while watching Monday's episode of Drag Race. They were doing a throw back to horror films. One group had a 60's version of Drag Race Me To Hell and the next had DRMTH Part 5 which was set in the 80's (right on). This all around clueless contestant (Gia Gunn, 23) who was in the 80's group kept asking what rather infamous pop culture things were while he was reading the script. "What's a DeLorean?" When they were interviewing him at the end he said he thought it was hilarious that the other groups movie was in black and white and his was in color. Like it was done intentionally as a 'you're too ugly for color tv' insult. The producer said, "Do you think it was maybe done in black and white because it was set in the 60's?"

Yay! Sunshine. Now if the wind will calm down. It picked up around 3pm yesterday and has not stopped. I had to drag 3 huge tree limbs out of the road when I came back from the store yesterday. I do not want to know how many more are in the road now.

I told someone that I wasn't as familiar with his request as this is still new to me. He went back and told my manager that I was very nice, offered to help, was pleasant, but that I said "this wasn't my day job"

Of course, she is all over me about this. The funny thing is that I brought up with request to her and asked for help. I've been asking for help on this one request for over a week now and I've been getting the wrong information.

I would NEVER say that to someone and I am so super annoyed. This is the last thing I needed

I feel bad for my mom. She's been having a problem with her hip for months. It is not constant. She just has bad bouts of pain and feels like it's out of place. I kept telling her to go to the doc. She goes yesterday and the nurse takes her into the room and says, "So I guess you are here for a cortisone shot?" My mom tells her she is there to find out what is wrong with her hip, and she does not want a cortisone shot. The doctor comes in about 30 minutes later, sits down and says, "I need to ask you a series of questions before I can okay a cortisone shot". My mom told him that she did not want a damn cortisone shot. She just wanted him to check her hip and send her for X-Rays. You can hardly get the woman to take Advil and C-Shots freak her out. She was highly upset and said they treated her like a drug seeker. I told her they probably got her confused with another patient because that's not normally a drug seeker thing, but annoying none the less.

Then he prescribed her a mild pain med before she left. One she told him she has taken after a minor surgery in the past, and it made her horribly sick. He told her to take it with food and wrote it anyway. She ate lunch, tried it again, and is sick as a dog today. Not a happy camper.

TRBL, can you use gauze instead?

so i'm organizing all these training sessions for our region for the person who is the head of our Learning & Development Committee.

then i notice that she has identified someone in HER office as the designated Training Assistant. this means that they get to go to all the sessions and get all the credit from head office - after *I* have done all the work!

HELL with that!!!!!
