This is a flounce from Pedants' Corner. I can no longer call myself a pedant. Without reading the content, you could figure out when DD was born by looking at my posts - I no longer capitalise correctly or punctuate, they are littered with typos and odd spacing! My only excuse is typing while feeding / jiggling baby on knee / incredibly fast so as to finish a post before she wakes Well I'll miss you all. Probably back at about the same time as I return to work.
exactly! someone has just asked me what 'ikt' means - it's an 'it' with a bonus k in the middle. Also I typed 'to' instead of 'too' the other day - it was a typo as my finger just didn't connect the second time, but was at calling myself a pedant and making that sort of mistake. Plus with the baby brain and lack of sleep it's only a matter of time before I can no longer make the distinction: off vs of, too vs to, their/there/they're...it's bound to happen
thank you all for making me feel better! Trillian, yes that's what I've been telling myself about typos, but when I typed 'to' instead of 'too' I didn't think anyone would believe the truth Plus (confession time) I can't spell the vegetable that looks like little trees and I can't spell occasion. Got away with it so far I think but the spotlight will be on me from now on...
I still can't spell the n word that means essential, and I still can't spell the name of the street my parents live on despite them having been there for 5 years. In all other respects, I like to think I am perfect, but we all have our crosses to bear.
