  1. I Love Toast  

    "If you're worried about your safety when walking home from Toast, be sure to walk with a friend."

    Thanks, Spectator!

  2. should be  

    "If you're worried about your safety when walking home from Toast, you're a little bitch. Come on."

  3. Reader  

    "Sez?" Apparently, Bwog has reverted to the NY Post version of "grammar." (or "grammer" as it were.)

  4. post headlines  

    are more like "COPS NAB BX THUG$Z"...beat that, bwog.

  5. GRAMMAR  

    SPEC EDITORS SPEND ALL THEIR TIME ON THEIR ONE ALL-CONSUMING EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITY AND THEY STILL MISS MISTAKES LIKE THIS:

    "I'm a complete boor"

    NO! YOU'RE A COMPLETE bore, FOOL!

  6. re: grammar  

    i REALLY hope that's a joke.

  7. #6 again  

    Kids?! Of course BOOR is a word, fool, but it's totally out of context. The author has not been at all rude or unmannerly; rather, he's worried that his column is boring. Check the next sentence:

    "The cruelest among you may have already decided that this is one of those long, pointless life-experience blatherings we GS-ers are prone to."

    And while the all-caps added a comic emphasis, I am in fact DEADLY SERIOUS about my grammatical critique.

  8. Spec'ed Out

    Goddamnit. Last year, so many people were asking *me* to write a GS column. And we get this crap instead? Thanks, Spec!

  9. light a candle  

    don't like it? go through the trouble of applying yourself and prove you can do better. sure beats sitting back and bitching over what could have been.

  10. ???  

    Are you trying to say that when bwog (or other) editors make mistakes its because they are so busy with their cool and well-balanced social lives? This makes no sense.

  11. GSer

    I'm the author. Boor isn't out of context. The point of the column is that it's an obnoxious life-experience monologue. So I'm being both a boor and a bore. Admittedly my idea doesn't work that well in an op-ed column; judging from the quickspec summary, the sassy tone was lost on many readers. The cover photo is a nice touch, though.

    • Nah  

      Don't worry, the overall obnoxiousness of your writing style and column came through clear as a foghorn.

      • GSer

        Obnoxious as opposed to annoymously quibbling over grammar? Sorry to have offended your precious little sensibilities. You have my permission to avert your eyes week after next.

        • heh.  

          sweetiepie, you're the one who seems to have offended precious sensibilities. you're arguing with anonymous commenters on the internet. but don't worry, my eyes shall indeed be averted, even though i'm rankled that a jackass such as yourself is going to be representing our school and making us gsers look even worse than usual.

          • GSer

            I suppose the accidentally doubled post did give my response a slightly hysterical edge. But, assuming you're the same person as #11, what would you have written about? I'm open to suggestions

  12. Yes  

    My friend's purse got stolen at Toast! DONT GO THERE
