Okay, so the marking may be driving me just a TAD loopy. But when you see the same mistakes over and over and over and over and over and over again, you really do have to develop coping mechanisms. I love Hyperbole and a Half's coping mechanism for the abuse of 'alot' so much, I use it myself. It really does make everything much more hilarious, and a lot less frustrating.
Hence, this was my productive use of time last week, in the midst of marking mayhem. And no, my Alot doesn't look like Hyperbole and a Half's. Yes, hers is prettier. But I was totally working from memory and trying not to waste - er, invest too much time, so you know. I'm still pretty proud :P :D
