Ppl wh dsmvwl r th scm f th rth

There is a disturbing trend online lately that upsets me to no end. It is this phenomenon called disemvoweling which is the process whereby someone would post a message and then remove all the vowels from their text. Why, you may ask? I have no clue other than that the internet is full of idiotic degenerates who take great delight in the wanton murder of linguistic skills.

Now, we all know that the internet is a bastion for cave-dwelling miscreants who post and lurk on internet forums (see this theory here) but this new movement is bringing it to a new low.

Stop the madness, everyone! Shun those who spurn conventions of language and justice! Spellers of the world, unite!

Anyone have a +3 helm?

After weeks of taunting and provocation, I finally jinxed myself. I got a cold.

Yes, I can't remember the last time I was sick. It must have been before last winter, 1+ years ago. Here I am, felled by the unpredictable weather.

Look, it's going to be 9 degrees in the afternoon!...but -5 in the morning! Which coat do I wear?

Well, f@#& you, Quebec winters!

Alas, it seems I failed my saving throw. I need to improve my constitution.

At least I'm feeling better now! I could put away my write-you-own-will kit.
