I screw these up ALL THE STINKIN’ time. Love spell check. I espetially love it when spell check comes up with creataive alternitive words!

I wonce was trying to spell out dagnabit…and spell check came up with Danube. Yes, thats it, I was thinking of The Blue Danube insted of my mild expleltive!


My favorite is when spell check is no help. When I can't even spell the word close enough for Mr. Check to even guess at what I'm trying to type!

Keep It Classy, Jen said...

For some reason, I always have a problem with the word...surprise or is it suprise....oh heck you know the word!!!

Jocasta said...

I have to many to list. You can also add for me that spell check isn't great as it's usually in American English and there are alot of differences in English - English. I'm swear that often I'm not misspelling - it's supposed to be like that!

Kellan said...

Take care - Kellan

I heart spell checker!!

Yes, my name is Arizona said...

I'm a pretty good speller...
I had trouble with receive, but in grammar school they taught us to remember, "i before e, except after c" and I haven't misspelled it since. And for "independent", remember that an ant isn't independent. Luckily I was in school back when schools actually taught you useful stuff.

I always misspell the same ones too. You would think I would try to figure it out.
Recpie/recipe that one always gets me. I wish coment section had spell check.

coastrat said...

I have trouble with some of these same words!

Laurie said...

I have sooo many! I often have a dictionary online open when typing so I can put a word in there to see how it is spelled. Today I had to look up the word embarrassed. Two "r" one "r" two "s" one "s". Those types of things always get me.

Randy and Staci said...

I know this is all in good fun, but I think I'm more worried that our country can't spell. My 4th grade son didn't work on spelling ONE TIME the entire year.

Dawn@Embracing the Ordinary Life said...

Hey...I wanted to tell you that I deleted you and added you several times...all with the same results..sorry...but I'm still clickin' you every day!!

Beth said...

I'm a horrible speller and have poor grammar too. I've been a bad speller since the fourth grade when I was in the lowest group. Oh, the shame...

Marketing Mama said...

Anything with double-letters gets a second guess from me - like

obsess
access

And a few that make me think twice:
affect/effect
ensure/insure

oy. I wish spell check worked automatically on blogger!

Rachel said...

Rhythm.

I was in my junior year of COLLEGE before I could spell that word without a dictionary! I was never able to remember the order of the h's and the y.

Great post.

Angelika said...

Um, did you notice that you misspelled "especially"? Oh, and "Expletive". And "creative". OMG. Was this a joke?

Maybe it was, because a lot of them are misspelled, LOL.

Nevermind.


Oh my heck! I was featured. And it didn't hurt or anything!
