lol @ irregardless  :D

Is someone using the non-word 'irregardless?"  They must have read the pet peeve thread.

hey, you calling my name a non-word?   >:(

actually, it is a word.  according to the fine people with merriam-webster online: 

"The most frequently repeated remark about it is that "there is no such word." There is such a word, however. It is still used primarily in speech, although it can be found from time to time in edited prose. Its reputation has not risen over the years, and it is still a long way from general acceptance. Use regardless instead."

but yeah, drives me nuts when otherwise intelligent people use it.  *shudder*

I have an idea for those of you with indoor cats.

First, tear the rejection letter and put it in a plastic bag.
Then, scoop the poopy contents of the litter box into said bag.

I tried this experiment and found it works really well.
When you have somebody dying because they are poor and black or poor and white or because of whatever they are ... that erases everything that's great about this country.

Jumping in here...

For my 3 rejections so far I've been indulging myself in a few beers or glasses of wine and used the letter as a coaster.

hang it on the wall.  so that one day, when i'm a hot shot, or marry a hot shot, or something, i can mail a copy back to the school, along with a copy of the fat donation check i'm giving the school i matriculated into.

That is precisely my plan.  ;D

It's funny, I had a friend (who majored in English at ND) get chewed out by a judge for using the word irregardless in court.  It is one of his pet peeves.  The moral of the story - it may be a word, but dont use it in court.

I finally get my first - and hopefully last - rejection letter yesterday.  There's a certain dignity to geting rejected by Yale.. maybe I'll frame it and put it next to my HLS diploma.  Right now its still sitting on my dining room table.

bump - this is such a great thread!  so far i've done nothing with them...but there's got to be something constructive and at the same time destructive...

Do you have a parakeet and/or other cage-dwelling bird?

No birds, but I'm sure the cat can make use of them.
