I'm prettier than you are.

Ms. Spelling

This is the first time and also the last time I'm going to tell you this, so make sure you're listening. Write it down in case you'll forget.

"Definitely" does not contain an "a". It is not spelled "definately".

If you value your life, you will never misspell it in my company.

(And no, I haven't seen this misspelling here yet. I just saw it on someone else's site and felt it was my duty to speak up. I've been silent for too long. And now I must be heard!)

It wasn't yours! (Seriously. But then again, even if you had misspelled it, I wouldn't have noticed, because I'm just too mesmerized by your words to give a hoot/rat's ass/fuck about your spelling.)

Gosh, I hope it's not mine either. Can you run spell chekc on your whole MT blog?

I don't think there's a spell "chekc" on MT, but you can do a simple search (one of the options on the main menu).

That one drives me nuts, too. And loose/lose, choose/chose, site/sight.

I overlook a lot of things, and I'm sure I make mistakes myself, but there are certain things that should be burned into your brain, and "definitely" is one of them.

Do not confuse my lack of typing skill with my ability to spell.
