When looking back on old posts. [Apr. 6th, 2006|12:38 am]

I was looking back on some mails on a particular list I was on.

In the summer of 2001, I was really chatty, and read like an air-headed teen - although more verbose. Thinking about it, that's probably just what I was.

The thing that gets me is, I pride myself on possessing some degree of spelling ability and sense of grammar. So it's strange to look back on a lot of my old posts (when I still held such things dear) and noticed typos. Even in some journal entries.

I know sometimes I misspell things just to inflect an accent in certain words I use. Some things are obviously just typos like writing "thos" instead of "this" or my fingers just typing a letter before another out of habit, but then there are some that just take the biscuit like "hairdressor". I'm not sure if it's just a bit of me that switches off every so often, or if I should be a leetle (little, but with an accent) bit concerned...

And I'd taken pride in the fact that I didn't need a spellchecker in my email client.
