Tim and Peter came round tonight. We went to Starbucks, ate takeaway pizza (from the place I mentioned here) and played Pop N' Music. I discovered that Peter didn't realise that Tim had a journal here, which means he's going to be very surprised when he reads it. Tim writes in a rather idiosyncratic style, which I find utterly hilarious, but other people don't seem to understand. The post where he wrote random bits in CAPITALS for no apparent reason had me laughing so hard that I... well, you know about LOL (laughing out loud) and ROTFL (rolling on the floor laughing)? There's also a rarer variant, FOHCL (falls off his/her chair laughing), which I'd never had occasion to use before.

At least Tim's writing is only surreal and not actually ungrammatical. Some livejournal users don't seem to be very good at English at all. For some reason the bisexual community here is full of them. So far this has been the worst post I've seen, though there's a couple of close runners up... like...the people....who...write...like this, and the ones who don't know how to use apostrophes, and the ones who talk about "gurls" and "bois" - argh, learn to spell, people!

OK, enough ranting. Time for bed.
