I WANNA TEASE YOU

Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,

It's been a while since I've tried to convince you people to help me make some money amazed and delighted you with a new product in Janie Junebug's Tease at www.cafepress.com/JanieJunebugsTease.

I now have a Zombies section, with a bumper sticker and t-shirts suggested by Middle Child. Click on http://www.cafepress.com/janiejunebugstease/10224709 to find the new section.

The bumper sticker says DRIVE AS IF ZOMBIES ARE CHASING YOU

The t-shirts, which are available in a variety of sizes and colors, say



Happy Zombie Shopping! Remember: If you want to express yourself on a t-shirt, bumper sticker, mug, or whatever, you just need to let me know what you want your product to say, and I have ways of making it happen. If you've written a book, you can send me the cover image in the size you want it to be on a shirt, and I can design a t-shirt with your book on it. Email me at dumpedfirstwife@gmail.com.

I still have my Religious Tease, Military Tease, and Editor's Tips Tease. 




Now let's pause for a moment of silence as we ponder the glory of grammar. Last week I reminded you that "a while" is a noun, and "awhile" is an adverb. A certain gentleman who writes a great blog called The Chubby Chatterbox has asked me to discuss farther and further. Use "farther" for physical distance, and use "further" for figurative distance. Further can also be a modifier, as in "Further, The Chubby Chatterbox tells great stories about his childhood friend, Ricky Delgado."

Let me know if you have grammatical questions or would like me to issue a reminder about a certain grammatical area that drives you crazy. I am The Queen of Grammar. I live to serve my subjects.


Infinities of love,

Janie Junebug

    P.S. Speaking of grammar, Your Majesty, my post today is on paraprosdokians, or as one commentor calls them, "paraunpronounceables". (fishducky.blogspot.com)

  4. LOVE the zombie stuff! I'm waiting for the next season of The Walking Dead...although I hope it's better than the last one was... I love grammar. Would you please mention to the masses that the past tense of "to drag" is "dragged"? Probably my biggest pet peeve.... :D

  5. I like that - Drive As if Zombies are Chasing you. But aren't zombies slow? ;0)

    1. I have no idea. I've never met a zombie. But if they're slow, then perhaps the bumper sticker means that people should take it easy and not drive as if they are maniacs.

  8. Do you prefer dived or dove? (Past tense of dive)

    ReplyDelete
  9. It used to be dove, but dived has become acceptable. I'm not sure which I would use because I haven't needed to talk about diving for quite sometime. I tend to be more of a traditional grammarian, but I try to keep up with changes and not get all in a tizzy over them. However, I cannot and will not accept transition or impact used as a verb.

  10. I bow to you the Queen of Grammar!...And Maxwell is still around? I always smile at your introduction!

    1. Maxwell stopped blogging quite sometime ago (though I still attempt to stalk him). He said it was okay for me to give up the intro, that he's not as feisty now. I tried leaving out . . . and Maxwell, and found it made me very uncomfortable. It's not my blog without Maxwell.

    1. What are we gonna do? It's Coffey. We can't stop loving him. Thank you for the lovely grammatical question. I know the answer, and I shall include it in an upcoming post.

  13. I hope you make a fortune selling these.

  14. From what I heard about World War Z you could really lose a ton of weight running away from those zombies! I guess they move really fast. New breed of zombies. ;)

    I love the grammatical reminders. Can't think of any questions offhand, but I'll keep you in mind. :):)

    1. I think Middle Child saw World War Z and then came up with the slogans. You don't really have grammatical problems, but if you have pet peeves, lay 'em on me.
