  • This kind of obsession with pretty gay love was frankly unhealthy.

Sorry, I'm an English and Classical Studies teacher at James Hargiss High School in Invercargill. I'm a bit of a stickler for spelling and I apologise for that. Also, many of the other sites I go on are for work where posts or articles are all correct.

And you must be from America to talk about spelling bees. They just don't happen anywhere else in the world.

Thanks for the site MoonFox. Much appreciated.

"Is clothing optional?" A man down the front called out.

Aimee looked imperiously down at him. "Yes, yes it is."

"Curlers," Draco said, distracted from the blaze. "So... Granger, the hair is deliberate?"

"Well... yes," Hermione answered, flustered. "I wanted everyone to think I was a natural beauty." She began to sob into Ernie's paper bag. "Now that's out, too!"

"A human being did that to their hair on purpose," Draco said. He looked very young and scared, suddenly. He looped an arm around Zacharias' waist and added tremulously, "Hold me."

Zacharias did. Justin ran past, and yelled, "More power to you, rainbow brethren!" - Maya, How the Badger Has Fallen

"Hello, Mother," he said. "The school burned down. It was evil invaders. Also, I appear to be gay."

Oh, and just to point out Bigdog112. You didn't just mispell griffin (which, by the way, is the correct spelling) but:

Bigdog112's sentence "a grifen half eagal half loin not a realy posibel animal"

Corrected sentence: "A Griffin, half eagle, half lion, not a really possible animal." Notice the difference? I know I'm pedantic but not even my year nine classes spell that badly.

Just a quick note to the members. It would be appreciated that posts similar to Bigdogs be reported to us so that problems can be kept to a minimum and outbursts like his don't escalate beyond manageability. This could have become far uglier than it did.

Taunting also doesn't help the situation any, I think its best that this thread end here.
