<font color="dab9ea">I know this is an utterly stupid question, but I'm in the middle of an 8 page paper which I've been working on all day, I'm braindead and can hardly keep my eyes open (my bedtime is usually around 10pm because I have to get up so early for work).... I'm trying to say "strengths and weaknesses lie/lye/lay..." blah I know I'm not spelling that right, but for the love of god I can't get my brian to work anymore.

More importantly, how many different ways can a fine bitch such as yourself lie with a pimp like Mr. Slim?

<font color="dab9ea">So if I was saying "strengths and weaknesses lye in the ability to... blah" I'd use lye? or lie? or lay?</font>
