Tuesday.

Have you ever gone back and re-read some of your posts and found spelling errors even though you use spell check with every post but it is one of those of rather than if errors and you feel stupid or blind or careless? Or you use the wrong spelling for the same word like weather or whether? Or alot instead of a lot? Or the post just reads badly or you have posted the same stuff over and over and then over again like about kittens or cats, having yet another cold or tooth ache, or snow falling and berms and used bad words to describe snow but then snow is a four letter word anyway?

I have.

It's Tuesday and I've got nothing new to say. It's white outside, I feel like crap and I still have 5 cats and 2 dogs.

I'm laughing because it took me a long time to know we had spell check. And even when you think you don't, you always have something to say.

Yes, yes, and yes. Also, yes, I'm pretty sure snow is a 4-letter-word. As is rain. As is grey. Damned weather bastards. (we had about 3 - 4" of snow here, they closed schools and everything, ha! It's already mostly melted, thanks to the rain.)

I find myself repeating stuff to my own self! Sad, but I think that maybe I'll get a newbie reader who needed to hear the story for the first time! See, always put the positive spin on it. :-)

OMG...have you been looking over my shoulder? Only a few hours ago, I discovered I'd left off the "y" in "every" in my last post so I corrected it. That's downright spooky.

caspar thinks you should add some more of your humor to your blog. you are one of the better captioneers and he knows that you feel deep passions about lots of things beyond puppies and pussycats.

Don't give me any of that little old lady crap! Rosemary, rock on!

This has always happened to me. I will proofread carefully and then as soon as something is published on paper or the internet, BANG, the blunder hits me in the eye. When it's on paper, you can't do a thing about it.

kenju said...

Oh,yes, of course. I find a lot of typos, too, since I have that dreaded elder-induced dyslexia problem! LOL

Chris said...

Sorry you don't feel well. Don't worry, spring is just around the corner and all that white stuff will melt away and your world will bloom.

Sling said...

Why no..I have never found a single error in any of my posts.
Unless you count the 36 times I misspelled,"mispell",and used run on sentences like a thesaurus on crack,..OH!..and my thoroughly aggravating use of ellipses..
Did I mention that I have a tendency to repeat myself?..(or is it,my self?)..
..and sometimes I repeat myself.

I don't reread old posts. I like to continue to live in ignorance and bliss of my percived perfection.

Cazzie!!! said...

Gah! I hate errors and the thing is I KNOW I have errors in my cirrent post yet blogger wont allow me to get in there and fix em up!!!

Nunnie's Attic said...

HAHAHAHA! I love your candor, darling. Is that spelled right? My computer has spell check but it doesn't have a proofread button. I am typically very anal about grammar. But even the arrogant mighty fall - EVERY day!

Love,
Julie

Lorraine said...

Uh, yep. And sometimes I go in an rewrite whole bits, even though it's already been read and no one is ever going to go back that far to see how I've improved the piece.

It's a sickness.
