For Certain

  1. Without fail, "Torn" by Natalie Imbrulia is always on the radio. Somewhere.
  2. Quarterly isn't often enough to eat at the Texas Roadhouse with my Tuesday night crew.
  3. American Idol will never lose its appeal. I know this cements my status as a sell-out, but it feels soooooooooooo good.
  4. The patient of the week on "House" will always, and I mean always, either cough up blood or have some kind of rectal bleed. It makes me squeemy every, and I mean every time.

  5. Every one should run their writing by someone who knows what they're doing. Especially when mass production is involved.

I always get thrown by the "its" versus "it's" thing. Is there a good rule for remembering which to use when?

It's (it is) a tricky one. In any contraction, any time an apostrophe is used, it's (it is) taking the place of missing letters. Can't, can not. She'll, she will. "It's" is it is. Its is the possessive form of an inanimate noun.

Confusing? Yes. I have to run myself through the its/it's debate most times too. It's the hardest of the contractions.

Wow, I hope I'm right. This could get embarrassing.

thanks for letting me crash that tuesday night crew...although in the cold light of day i think maybe five rolls was a wee bit excessive.

I get confused by its and it's too! Every time I write it I have to stop and reread it in my head, just to make sure.

Definitely, maybe, probaby related posts:
