    "He lay"

    To lie......to recline
    Today I lie down, yesterday I lay down.

    To lay.....to put down, needs a direct object
    Today I lay it down, yesterday I laid it down.

    Excuse my obvious failure at 'tongue-in-cheek' humor. I have traded the pom-poms for Kevlar.

    Yipes!

    Humour is highly subjective.

    For instance... I think I'm funny but most people think I'm weird or even rude. Luckily tho, New Weird is almost a genre! There's a chance I'm just ahead of my time and not actually as crazy as the voices keep telling me!

    PS. Sorry for not getting that you put all the "Grammarically" mistakes in there on purpose to highlight your point. It was almost really funny... really.

    Cool

    Pax!
    I'm ultra sensitive sometimes...forgive me. I have to really toughen up if I'm going to make it in the publishing world. I've been very lucky as far as my book goes, the reviews have all been kind...God help me when I get a bad one...I'll probably cry for a week...Oh well...

    There aren't usually that many reviewers willing to be kind. I think they must've found something they liked.

    Did you see the Amazon review of Anne Rice's Blood Canticle where Anne got involved and spat the dummy/pacifier big time at her reviewers? That would've been so much nicer if she'd done it more "grammarically"... but then she's not too keen on being edited... or reviewed it seems. 101.1 How not to react to a bad review.

    Weird is the new norm. I can't stand normal people.

    What the hell am I talking about? That didn't even make sense and I also contradicted myself. I'm off to the corner shop to part exchange my brain.

    I keep telling people I am the most 'normal' person I know...but that doesn't seem to give them any sort of security.

    Normal people hate it when you point out they're strange too. But their insults suck, no originality.

    Cool

    Normal is me...
    Strange is everyone else.
    My opinion only, of course.
    Everyone needs their fantasies...don't you think?

    Normal is doing things the same way everyone else is doing them. Wearing the same things everyone else is wearing. Acting the same way, looking the same way, conforming to established ideals. Going along with a 'group identity'.

    It almost doesn't matter if you're a prep, jock, goth, geek or punk. Even though they dress differently and have different ideals, really they all conform to their group identities. Even the Goths and the Punks who claim they're non-conformist.

    Then there's the Freaks. The ones everyone think are messed up in the head or look different from everyone else. Usually others avoid them except for the problem-self-esteem types who can only feel good about themselves by knocking down someone who's unable to defend themselves. The so-called 'loser' types.

    What if you're a free spirit who gets along with everyone but isn't really part of any 'group'? And you don't have real friends because you don't fit in anywhere? Or maybe you don't want to fit in? What category do you go in then?

    What makes someone weird? Why do people try hard to be 'normal'? Why do people succumb to peer pressure?

    Ok, I better stop asking questions. Just needed to get all that out of my head.
