Spell it Right

Spell it Right
Originally uploaded by BitBoy.

It has been brought to my attention lately that I have a serious spelling problem. Ironically I was never plagued with this problem in school. But as I become more addicted to my Blackberry and all things technical, my basic skills diminish. I have become to reliant on Spell Check, and am always in a hurry. My handwriting is suffering the same fate. I think faster than I write. The result is a huge mess. Certain Someone who's one of the smartest people I know is always pointing out my English grammatical and spelling errors. He's a taskmaster. He speaks 3 languages perfectly and he just makes me sick sometimes with his perfection .Last weekend my old friend M came in for a quick visit. As he lives in Seattle, the blog is a way he can keep up with my busy self. He politely pointed out that I've had Thirty misspelled on my header of the blog since the beginning. Certain Someone nodded in agreement . All this time and no one said anything! I also embarrassed myself firing off a quick donor solicitation email for one of my boards on the Blackberry( no Spell Check). I bcc'd Certain Someone and he quickly replied that I had misspelled two words. I proofed it several times. Oh well, I guess we won't be getting that donation. I guess I just have to slow down and pay more attention to details. This could explain why I haven't been getting much nibbles from sending out my resumes. But I had those proofed. Also learning German is adding to the confusion. My class partner and a new friend whose taking lessons too,and I mix francaise in with Deutsche. I didn't sit with him and he made a remark that I didn't want to fall into the habit again during class. Maybe on some subconscious level yes? So I need to hang out with better spellers and otherwise perfect people from now on.
