Words we misspell. Discuss.

Once again, I have failed miserably at the weekly blogposting routine. Seattle's chilly climate has fooled me into thinking it is still February, and here it is June 7th. You got me again, cloud pocket!

In other news, my boyfriend is afraid to play Scrabble with me because I'm a fancy author. To him and to anyone out there with similar misgivings, here are some words I misspell no matter HOW MANY TIMES I type them carefully out or try to teach myself the proper spelling:

believe
unconscious
consciousness
across
exercise
guard
acquaintance
...to name a few.

I'm not talking about misusing your and you're or to, too, and two. I'm talking about words that just conjure that damned red squiggle every time you type them. What words trip up your otherwise swift writing sprees? Discuss.



On a different note, Blogger has changed its photo upload settings to include URLs. I no longer have to drag pictures of Linda Richmond to my desktop in order to add them to my posts.

Small victouries. I mean victories. Dammit.
