I bet this person's IQ is a number less than the temperature at which things freeze...


I can't help wondering if this frigid weather has frozen the brains of the fine folks over at that place I like to call Copyeditors Needed Now. What other excuse could there possibly be for misspelling something as simple as the word arctic?

On a related note, I'm not sure which I loathe more: this freakin' freezing weather or silly misspellings. They're both right at the top of my shit list, alongside other evils such as pickles, spiders, tapered pants, and the Mets.

Oh great. When is this second "artic" blast coming? *grumble*

Luckily it wasn't so bad where I live...did you get a lot of snow? I got maybe an inch or so of snow here.

Well, going by how long snow was falling, we probably had a few inches. But none of it accumulated. Except a light dusting on my car. So it wasn't too bad. =)

Phew--that doesn't sound bad at all! :)
