I always fight with myself over prepositions. Which ones should I use to indicate time and place? I don't want to repeat my prepositions. The party will be held at my house at 7:30 p.m. I also want to use more exciting prepositions than I normally do. I never remember to use around and near when I should. Instead I use in. I probably look like a moron to the preposition whores. My prepositions always come off like I am new to the English language, rather than the erudite man of letters that I am.
