I have paper due later today that will require me to use APA style for the first time ever. Even my Psychology professors, until now, have preferred MLA format.
Fuck Yeah, English Major Armadillo is alternately amusing and infuriating for me. Apparently, it takes much less to be an English major these days. (You'll note, if you click the link, that I have inserted a comma into the blog's title because it simply reads better that way.) While the mods of the blog are usually technically correct, sometimes they write incredibly clunky sentences:
I’m constantly adding commas and apostrophes on sheets I get given.
I also get the distinct impression some of these folks are idiot savants, given how many memes I've seen with some allusion to difficulty in any non-literature class (nope, I don't flunk anything involving numbers), and while I'm drawing wild conclusions about folks based upon their silly, open-to-submissions blog, it seems they also hang around stupid people, if the "Use literary allusion in conversation...no one understands" posts are to be believed. Also, the whole endeavor is just as idiotically liberal as one would expect, complete with a very earnest discussion on how "their" and "they" are improper singular, gender-neutral pronouns (this is inaccurate, though not the usage I prefer) and we should, instead, use neologisms such as "hir" and "xe".
Ah, well. Over all, it is enjoyable. Though I feel really, really old every time I come across a ZOMG JK ROWLING IS GOD! post anywhere. (I tried reading one of the Harry Potter books once. It was so bad I didn't make it past the first page. Very, very simplistic writing.)
