a dream, brit vs american spelling & swearing in quebecois

I've been in the woods for like 38 hours, it felt like a lifetime. Lack of internet freaks me out.

Very briefly, cause who really wants to hear about my dreams...I had the strangest, and loveliest thing happen while I was in the woods. As I was telling [info]firehead30, because oddly enough she'd just posted about Fairy Dust I had a dream that incorporated bits of the story into it. Sadly, Brian and Justin, and oddly, Ben and Emmett were only discussing the asdfjlafdl!!!sex in the pink dress in my dream, I didn't get to see it happen. Darn it.

Now a random comment about my spelling. I would just like to state for the record, that I know my abuse of the english language, particularly grammar, is at times horrific. But there is one type of spelling "mistake" i make frequently. I went to school for 2.5 years in quebec, lived there for 3. By the time I left there were certain things I have trouble remembering to spell the american way, but it's totally inconsistent. So yes, sometimes in the same sentence I will write behaviour and color. Dialog looks completely wrong to me, it should be dialogue, but analog looks just fine. There is no rational explanation. I like to go to the theatre in the town's completely fucked. This is why you shouldn't send your children to foreign countries for education.

In real life I also swear in quebecois...a lot. but i try not to type it because it seems pretentious to me. but if you ever read a post or comment and all the sudden i've thrown in a tabarnac or an ostie, it's only because i'm writing from head to fingers.

why am i telling you all of this? I have no idea. I promise not to do it b/j fic. :D

And now because you've listened to me go on and on...i offer completely random-ass pics :D
