What are some of your pet peeves? People making a big issue about its & it's and too, to, & two.

What is or was your least favorite subject in school? English because of all the ambiguity

What other languages can you speak? None, though I can read a tiny bit a Spanish.

Is this because you confuse them a lot or because it's really no big if people mess those up?

As long as people can understand each other, it doesn't really matter. (I am weakly against the use of "literally" to mean "very", because it makes it harder to say something literal. For example, if I say "I am literally glued to my chair", people might think I mean "I figuratively glued to my chair." However, even saying "literally" to mean "figuratively" isn't terrible because one can say "literally literally" or "actually")

What exactly are the ToO blog's for? Does anyone use them or read them? I don't think anyone knows.

On the "blogs" page (in a link at the top of the page), you can see recent posts by people. Paula regularly blogged on hers for a period of time. I once posted some posts on mine along time ago. (When I read my blogs now, they seem weird because they look like they were written by someone with a different personality than me. Far more emotion than tends to end up in my posts now)

I, for one, hardly ever read them, and in general they seem fairly dead. I expect they are dead because they don't really serve a purpose that isn't served by something else.

History note:
This is what the team who introduced them said in their platform:
Blogs, blogs, blogs, we get our news from blogs, we find insight in blogs, blogs make up the podcasts we listen too, the reviews we read, most everyone has blog, but some people may have trouble getting their blog noticed, or even having the will to go onto a separate site from their normal range of visited sites and actually set up a blog.

Enter the ToO, the place you log in every now and again (or every day if you're awesome enough. ;) ) you have built a reputation here, people will listen to what you say...but you don't exactly have a place to muse on the ToO, no place to really express what you're thinking at the moment, especially if it isn't really a thing someone would make a thread about. Maybe you just want to update people on your life...or on a project you're working on, or post the latest episode of your podcast. You search the ToO high and low for something like this...but it's nowhere to be found. :(

Well here at EK and Kairi HQ, we realized that if we made blogs readily available on a site that people already frequent, they would be more likely to frequently post on their blog. So if we are elected we will be implementing user blogs that allow someone to create their own blog right on the ToO! This could especially help some of our aspiring podcasters as all they need to do is just post their episode as an attachment and it would appear in the RSS feed for their blog, no hassle required. This can also help for people longing to have an online journal of some sorts, you can even pick who can view the blog to keep it private! People can subscribe to your blog via PM, E-mail, or RSS, meaning they will get your blog sent straight to them so you know it wont be ignored!

Soooooooo, huzzah for blogs! \:D/

Do you have any pets? I personally to not have any pets, but my family has a cat, a dog, some horses and sheep.

How did you choose your username? I was trying to think of a name that was not used by anyone else, because on a chatroom somewhere, I thought someone else was using my original nick. (In reality, I just was trying to log in twice with out realizing it.)

Log in twice? o_0 How does that make sense?

What was your original nick?

Log in twice? o_0 How does that make sense? It wasn't on the ToO. It was on some IRC sever (I don't remember which one) and I joined once as my original nick, and then it failed when I started a second client by accident and tried to join.

What was your original nick? I'll refrain from answering to keep from joining together the two pseudonyms. So that, if someone discovers my real identity for this name, it won't also expose the other name.

Why do you like geography (if I'm correct in that assumption)? What do you use to study it?

I think I like it because it is a large set of organized information. Besides looking at maps, I once took a highschool class in it.

How is school?

Are you good at blinking contests? (that is, seeing who can not blink for the longest)

Are you a good singer?

Can you do any impressions?

Almost done. \:D/

Just trying now, I was able to refrain from blinking about 9 seconds.

Are you a good singer?
Not really. At least I assume that, because I hardly ever sing.

Can you do any impressions?
In the sense of imitating famous people, no.

Yes

=D How were your classes?
Time consuming and not much fun. School has a way of turning an interesting topic into a boring one.

How do you feel?
Glad that school is over.

Are you taking summer classes?
No. Though I considered it briefly, before deciding I wanted more a holiday.

Is "maths" grammatically correct? #-o
Maths is correct in British English.
