I don't know why, but the word "pregers" annoys me but I like the word "prego". I only use it when typing. A short cut I guess, I just got used to it after seeing it a million times. I hate it when people use "to" instead of "too". Its not that hard, people!

LOL. My Dad use to ask me: "How do you spell to?" And I'd spell it. Then he'd ask me how to spell "two another way" so I'd spell it another way, like that...the number or too, meaning also. He asked me how to spell train. I spelled it. "t-r-a-i-n. Then he asked me to say all the words, one after the other. "Too too train." And then he told me, "when you get a little older, I'll teach you how to spell "locamotive." Hahahaha.

That one and then there's there, their and they're. I find myself, when I'm typing really fast, plugging in the wrong one sometimes. I know the difference, but when my brain is not at full throttle, I sometimes stick in the wrong one and sometimes, the wrong two, too or to, too. I mean also. Rfffff.

What gets me is 'preggers' is exactly the same length as 'pregnant' so...I just really don't get that at all. I guess it's supposed to be cute, but it sounds idiotic. And 'preggo' is two letters short. Whoo! Big abbreviation there.

It's intents and purposes, not "intensive purposes". That always bothers me. That and adding -ish to everything. Smallish, roundish, coolish, AHHHH! I can't stand -ish.

That one cracks me up. I've also seen a lot of incorrect spellings and uses of "per se" recently.

I've had to chill out about spelling and grammar issues since spending more time on the internetz, or my head would explode. I also think and write in random acronyms far too often.

First off, uber and yummy totally roxorz irregardless of what yall think.

I get a big kick out of slang and I use it at the worst times in the wrong context as often as possible. I also like to use hand signs and secret handshakes that the other person has no clue of. Grammar/Spelling Nazis bring out my prey drive.
