Spell Check

Do you spell it wierd or weird? I always understood it to be wierd since the old rule from school "I before E except after C."

Andy thinks I am incorrect! Am I? Honey...your argument? And anyone else's?

    Letting go of the fact that you had internet access to type this, and thus could have checked Google, Webster.com, dictionary.com, or a variety of online sources for the correct spelling, did you notice that Blogger itself comes with a spellchecker?

    At first, I thought this was a weird (or, for you, wierd) lapse of judgment for you, but then I remembered who you voted for the past two elections, and it aaaaallll made sense. :-)

    I admit it was strange.

    Have I been wrong all these years since my junior year of high school...because of Ms. Ball POINTING OUT spelling rules...in english? I vividly remember her making us memorize spelling rules from the english language (even though she was the spanish teacher). She made us cry, ask Allan Weir...the woman was threatening.

    It's a hard word, ok?

    Ms. Ball was a democrat Zhubin (she was quite loud with her political affiliations and raved how she was voting for Al Gore in the 2000 election). I may be more conversative and make spelling errors...but at least I don't TEACH errors to the upcoming generations...like some political parties. So who is actually making America dumber? huh??

    It isn't a teaching error on her part, and she wins again since we all know how Bush has worked out. This must have been a bad day for you. Also, let me add that you could have loaded up word and spelled it "wierd" and had it fix it.

    so what is the deal with the saying "I before E except after C"...is it receive or recieve? Nevermind...I'll check it myself. It wasn't really the word itself, just the rule that I lived by.

    My whole spelling education has gone out the door.

    My life is in shambles...

    It is just a general rule, I can think of a few words off the top of my head that don't follow it either: Their, Foreign, vein.
