More Mockery To End My Day.

I'm watching Late Show With David Letterman. Kelly Ripa is on. Kelly Ripa is married to Mark Consuelos. For their anniversary, Kelly Ripa wanted to surprise her husband by getting his name tattooed on her wrist.

She showed her wrist to the camera on the show.

Kelly, your tattoo appears to say "Consuelo's." You know that's different than "Consuelos," right? You did look at the design before you had it permanently etched into your skin, right?

Here's a tip, one that oh so many people don't seem to understand: Just because a word ends in "s" does NOT mean it needs an apostrophe. This is especially true when the word in question is someone's name. Your cohost isn't named "Regi's," right?

This is why everybody should have an editor.

I spend several minutes every weekday reminding students that one does not form the plural of a noun by slapping an apostrophe and then an "s" onto the end. Now, if Kelly's husband's name was simply Consuelo and she wanted to declare herself owned by him, that would work.

I thought that too.

Our minds seem to have similar thought patterns. Maybe we could pinch-hit for each other in various aspects of our lives, if need be. Speaking of, think you could teach a three-hour class to eighteen tired and usually grumpy community college students, tonight?

Sure, I'll just go in and scare them with how bitter I am about dropping out of college. They'll shape up after seeing me rant. I'll even jump up on desks and scream "WHY?!" a lot.

It would keep their attention, and it's possible one particularly surly young woman would jump up onto her own desk and shout, "Then tell us what the fuck we're LEARNIN' in this class!"

We got a card addressed to The William's.

1. Husband's last name is Williams, not William.
2. My last name is not Williams or William.
3. This card was from a *relative.*

And for some reason no one gets why I am ragey about this.

With most common mistakes, I can sort of figure out how they happen -- I'm annoyed by them, but I can see where some grammar teacher years ago failed to explain something, or something -- but with this, I just don't get it.

Or, maybe she had a, uh, wrist transplant, from some guy named Consuelo?

I can see that mistake happening if you're typing thoughts out very quickly - it happens to me occasionally. But, I edit!

Except, that wasn't typing. I would blame Kelly and the tattoo artist.

Why hasn't anyone brought up the fact that she basically made one of her body parts the property of her husband? I guess Kelly Ripa gives a mean handjob. (Ohhh, too crude?)

Love the Icon. What did you think of Sanderson's "ghost" writing?

I thought that it was pretty good. Sanderson did a good job aside from his portrayal of Mat. I wrote a blog post about it over on my blog. http://aaron.benedictfamily.org/index.php/2010/02/the-gathering-storm/

Well, she did qualify Letterman's not being able to read by saying that it still need to heal completely and loosen.

Then again, it could be a BDSM reference... ;)
