Find me on most of the social spaces as Mrs. Flinger
In an effort to launch something in a very short timeframe, after three months of coding in off hours for stints of a few minutes at a time, I used a framework to get *something* out. This is not code I would use for a client. Ever.
In fact, if you could see my face right now, you'd realize this is a little more than painful.
But, as sometimes has to happen with personal projects, the non-paying personal site takes a backseat to quality and gets dressed in handmedown code. Thanks to VMcore for the free ride here.
Yep. Been there, done that. My work e-mail has decided that everytime I type we, as in me and others, I mean wee. I send MANY e-mails to higher-up suggesting that we wee. I’m sure it will take me staight to the top!
That is soooooo funny. Do they even do drug testing?
I’ve done it, I’ve been famous for it, and I totally had to turn it into a joke b/c I couldn’t stop doing it. No. matter. how. hard. I. tried. and. reviewed. over. and. over. obsessively.
Just kidding on the drug testing question, I realize that it meant to be “opinion”.
Oh for an ‘anonymous reply’ button…
PS I posted my TTC saga on my blog today. Woot!
You’d be amazed how often those writing on public health end up having “pubic” in their documents.
Oh yeah..done that! I do the editing for all text in my company. We did a CD last year and made 10k copies and passed them out at various trade shows. I looked that thing over sooo many times. Then, at the last trade show of the year, after giving these to thousands of people, someone comes up to me and points out that the word vertical was misspelled. It was a BIG word on the front of the CD. Kicking myself still.
Hahaha… one of the perks of being a sahm is that I can send out weird things like that and blame it on the kids…
I could not stop laughing at this. Sad thing was on the phone with someone and they thought I was laughing at them. :D
Girl. YOU. crack. me. up.
I work for a company called the “Foto News” and EVERYTIME I run spell check it always wants to replace “Foto” with “foot.” I just know one of these times its going to happen… FOOT NEWS!
I know the devil invented Spell Check. However, I think it should have been called “Scans Quickly to Alter Your Uniqueness.”
I think there are a few words that should be ADDED to the dictionary:
3. Funner. (Cause it is SO a word!)
Hasn’t happened to this former 5th grade all-school spelling bee first runner-up, but my fourth graders are famous for selecting more interesting, impressive words as they spell-check their work. Hilarious!
Do you watch Headlines every Monday on Jay Leno? They are too hilarious!! (mostly are from newspapers or misc items people send in…) We try to remember to watch it as it is well worth it!
One of the reasons I almost never comment on any blog is because after I have written and re-written my two-line masterpiece and then spellchecked it (and all of the revisions) several times it is time to go to bed and I am unsure about whether or not that was really ‘the direction I wanted to go with that comment’. Bra Bra Bra…
Hell, at least I never ask for opium.
So, I’m just waking up and when I first read this, I was very confused because I still read it as opinion, both in the post title and in the post itself. I think I need to get some coffee before I continue reading blogs.
My daughter had to write a letter in school last week. She used spell check. The letter was signed, “Sinisterly Kianna”
My old AOL email spell-check changed “Ursula Andress” to “Arousal Undress.” Totally poetic.
oops. that made me snort a tiny spray of snot on my keyboard.
now that i’ve wiped it up, i’ll just tell you that i work for the local council in a place called Footscray, but my fingers always type Footscary. the thing is that this is one tough place that people from the rest of our city would be too afraid to visit, so it’s kinda appropriate.
did he post a reply, HEY MAN, ME TOO!!??
I do dictation for my dad’s medical practice, and I accidentally typed “fecal sac” instead of “THECAL sac.” (talking about the spine)
yeah, THAT one was great!
Gaww, I just do that in IRL too. I’ll mean to say something that will sound nice and out comes the “opium”.
Emails? Fawgetaboutit, I’m all over that.
I have a friend whose Asian coworker sent out an e-mail to the vast majority of her company with “admenstruation” instead of “administration.” Can’t blame that on spellcheck… talk about “lost in translation”...
