You know, I recieved an e-mail about the very same thing. I deliberatly dangle prepositions in my diary; I do it deliberatley since most americans talk this way.

Oh, I forgot to add that Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of rememberance for those who have died in our nation's service.

Personally, I find it fun to break the rule about not starting sentences with conjunctions. And the one about writing in complete sentences. Hopefully, your pets will leave the couch alone for at least a DAY...you'd think they would be full from eating the bedspread.

By the way, I don't wish retail workers to NOT have a happy long weekend, I just know you won't have any time off due to Memorial Day Sales Blowouts 'n' shit. Wombat, I believe I knew that at some point in time but I always get Memorial Day and Veteran's Day confused because they are related in theme, but one honors the living and the other the dead. I blame it all on the white shoes controversy.

That drunken argument started at 11:00 am. How much had you had to drink?

Clearly, not enough.

I like to dangle my prepositions off the edge of the building until they tell me what I want to know. Once I accidentally let Beneath slip out of my grasp and it fell 6 stories, but it was okay because it landed in a dumpster full of fabric swatches and the foam used to stuff cushions.

Which is almost as ridiculous as somebody who argues that ending a sentence with a preposition is wrong.
