Soon you will not be talking with contractions, as well.

However, if you want to fit in with Danny's other followers, you will have to start wearing all black.

...well, that part I have down.
And while I do use the occasional contraction, I also strive to speak properly. An effort in which I frequently fail, but I feel the attempt is worth something.

I do use both "sans" and "ill" sometimes,
But I'm hardly what you could call Proper People.

I do try to work in the occasional "bar", "lest" or "nonetheless". "Cum" is a bit harder since Brits can't pronounce Latin properly.

Edit: I am much amused by the current adverts:

"Hyperbaric Oxygen Holistic Center
Dr. Cole offers holistic treatment of CP/stroke/brain injury for as low as $110 per treatment. Find out more about the innovative holistic therapies we offer to treat these conditions....

Click Here!"

"Oxygen Therapy, Wholesale Prices
Global Health Trax has Oxygen Elements Plus, Silica, liquid vitamins and minerals available at great wholesale prices. This is also a rewarding business opportunity. Order direct today....

Click Here!"

I saw it on the Nukees forum, so it must be true.

Actually, the first thing that Gav did upon entering the bar was order a drink.

He doesn't seem to have ordered a drink -- just asked about the wi-fi access.

In that panel, both he and Danny already know that the coffee shop across the street has the wi-fi access. In the previous comic he actually defied Danny by going into the bar. Plus, he's holding his hand up in an ordering motion.

Not that it really matters, but--

Oh. Right. It really doesn't matter.

Nevermind. :D

Congratulations, you've figured out that a conversation on an internet message board is trivial. You're very smart.

I actually use nonetheless very frequently......

But then my speech only starts at weird, and progresses into some nether-land....

Looks to me like he was trying to attract the bartender's attention, in order to order a drink (I should've found a better way to say that), but he doesn't actually get that far, being distracted by the dollar signs and digits he can see on the computer screen.

Okay. As of today, looks like whoever said it was 'coz the bartender was male was right.

I'm going to put forward the guess that all the waitresses in that new bar will have names starting with 'L'.
