I'm baaaaa-ack!

I know, I know. I hadn't posted in a couple days (but look, I just did, and they're below this post! Whee!). I was super-tired, super-busy, and even grammarphiles need a day off occasionally, you know? But I'm back now--with a whole arsenal of shittastic grammar and heinous spelling at my disposal (and a big merci beaucoup to those of you who have been sending me this stuff!), so keep checkin' back...

Yesterday I was in New York City, and much to my delight, I passed where Mary Poppins is playing on Broadway. See, they have this really big sign with this really big word on it, and the word is Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. I was filled with geeky glee when I saw it because finally, finally, I have proof that all those years, I was spelling it properly! (I know what you're thinking. You're thinking, "Grammarphile, when the bloody hell did you ever have to spell that word?" Well, if you were growing up a brilliant speller, people loved to test you with that word. And so, as to not look like a wuss, I'd spell it for them if I was asked to do so. They, of course, had no clue if I was spelling it correctly, and I, of course, insisted that I was absolutely spelling it correctly. And now, emblazoned across a pinkish sign on Broadway, I have my proof. So there, suckers!)

And then today I returned to work. I sat down at my desk and checked my e-mail. The second message I read started out with this exact phrase: "I'm having problems registrating on the website." That's right. Registrating. (Is that anything like conversating?) I laughed my ass off and somehow (amazingly) managed to refrain from e-mailing the dude back saying that he clearly had waaaaaaay bigger problems than just with our website.

One more thing. My good buddy NUMBER ONE SON sent me a link to an article that all of you should read if you're a) into laughing at stupid typos, and b) into sports. This is just fantastic--quite the hilarious read. Click here to check it out!
