"My spelling is Wobbly. It's good spelling but it Wobbles, and the letters get in the wrong places." A. A. Milne
An apt description of my typing skills – the letters get in the wrong places.
And over the years, I’ve come to rely more and more on spell-check. I find this appalling.
Two reasons why I prefer writing in longhand first. With pen and paper, misspelled and mixed-words aren’t as glaring – don’t interrupt me mid-sentence.
Happy Victoria Day Weekend to those of you (us) who celebrate it. What we actually celebrate is having a holiday Monday. Dare I say it? No one really cares about Victoria’s birthday. Nor do I think she would appreciate the drinking and partying that goes on in her name. The fireworks, maybe.
