Pet peeves

I know many people use "insure" rather than "ensure" when they mean "to make sure or certain," but it's just not right. (I know, I know, English is an evolving, living language, blah blah blah.)

Okay, boot straps... I need more agent/publisher names, because I've about reached the end of the lists I had already. When they all reject me, what am I supposed to think?

Yes, I write for myself and my own pleasure, but I always liked having an audience, and I don't have much of one now. It's frustrating. I think that's the only reason I even mildly considered Amazon's CreateSpace -- now that I've failed in their contest AGAIN, I'm sure they're going to be pressing me to go that route.

I can't believe that Chuck is on the bubble. Every time the networks put on something I like they cancel it without giving it any chance. It's all crap, crap, crap, all the time. Why should I start trying a new show, when they're just going to cancel it?

whine, whine, whine...

That is true. I can't remember what I was reading the other day where someone used "whom" when it should have been "who." My hair stands on end. As I said to nutmeg3 above, this use of "insure" when it should be "ensure" is littered throughout Steven Brust's "Viscount of Adrilankha" series, so this is Tor Books -- a pretty MAJOR publishing company!

Mmmm, thinking about it, I don't think Tor's turned me down yet...
