    Re: I can't do it on my own

    Hi blouen..i think you usage of myself in "a little nosey myself" is a little out of context..it's more proper to use that particular phrase if you are accusing someone of being nosey as well..just a thought :)

    Awsome paragraph! You're not expecting me to make comments on it right? I wouldn't even know how to start.

    Now it brings me to wonder if there's a way to sillicit help from others for opinions and suggestions, or "scrutnies" in my case. Any ideas? anyone?!

    There are 3 out of the 5 that I don't know or haven't used, it's a challenge but I'll take it, just give me time. Oh by the way, mispelling is my nother name. If you see any, feel free to point out and correct.
    Oh no, it's not sexist! It's just what I have observed through critical observation, and a little reading. The "general" thing according to surveys. Well, I am just a poor boy... Sorry if it made you think of it as a little offensive.

    Btw, about the spelling:
    Solicit, scrutiny(ies), awesome,

    Well, I guess that's because I'm accusing myself as a little nosey there.

    Thanks donuts.

    "Constructive criticism" is what we're looking for, at least I am.

    Yup,


    but I don't get what you mean, Gdonuts. Could you please state it in a more intelligible way. How about rephrasing what I've written for clarification.

    Re: I can't do it on my own

    Lol im sorry ..it should be..."im accusing myself of being a little nosey"..not "im accusing myself as a little nosey" i'm not so sure that it is not proper grammar but it will expose a little vulnerability on your part..if u get what i'm saying

    Re: I can't do it on my own

    I got it! thanks!

    But what about that you're pointing out in the paragraph? "A little nosey myself" being out of context.

    Re: I can't do it on my own

    Ok, there's what I've come up. Do give critism to it, I myself is a "tough-love" kind of person.

    He couldn't remember the time when it became painstaking to get up every morning and go to work. Life as a whole has become a drudgery. Walking down the street would give him physical discomfort, he could feel his muscle twitch with a wierd sense of claustrophobia watching the myriad of people and cars go by, the world is closing in. Ipod is his only hope, it helps to block the world around him, to disconnect. He embraces the arcane escape, he stays a loner........

    I'm not so sure about "arcane" though, oh well.

    Re: I can't do it on my own

    Hi There, you two appear to be getting on with it. I am glad I have been the catalyst in this situation and glad that you both enjoy the site. I do think it is a good way of picking up meanings in English that you can not find in any dictionary.

    I will look at your submissions this evening and will comment on them if that is acceptable. Have either of you found out how to receive notifications when a reply has been posted? I appear to stuggle, flounder in the dark, but eventually find your replies, which I must say I look forward to.

    By the way NearThere, with regard to rural and urban I was not referring to English, that is dialect. I have more of a northern dialect as I lived in Liverpool and Manchester but I am now a southerner, and as such, should speak better English, or so the southerners think!

    So many youngsters in this country cannot quantify the difference between the two English words Rural and Urban. They may not be used in the States that's why I asked the question.

    I will read and reply later. Bye to you both
    Keep you the good work
