MISSPELLING MONDAY for December 29, 2008 (1 of 2)


Despite the fact that usually, when you're eligible to do something, it does have something to do with the word able--as in, able to be chosen, able to qualify, etc--the word able is not actually found in the word eligible. Unless you're browsing MySpace ads--in which case, lord only knows what sort of crazy words and spellings you might find!

Gracias to PAT for spotting this one!

Hopefully, some of that $12K will be spent on an intensive spelling class!

We can only hope!

“Thousands$$” Is that what it sounds like when snakes say it?

I just got a visual of Kaa (from the Disney cartoon version of *The Jungle Book*) when I read this comment! :)

Oh Man,

You are so right about that. I had completely forgotten about JB.

As soon as I read that, the picture popped right into my head like I had watched it last night.

I loved that snake.

I love your site by the way. I'll add you to my link list today on both my blogs.

And yes, I'm StarsOnly. I screwed up on those other replies.

I used to have a gigantic stuffed Kaa! I loved that snake, too. :)

Thanks for the kind words, Brian! I'm gonna go check out your blogs tonight. :)
